April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Balloon Talk

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart's Balloon Talk stamp set. Thanks for visiting from Krista's blog. Balloon Talk is a set of 24 stamps with cute expressions and talking balloons you can use on a variety of layouts, cards or projects.

I was recently a vendor at a crop and made these cards for all of the crafters. Beate Johns' card (found on Pinterest) was my inspiration. The croppers loved their gift from me!
