July Joyful Stars Blog Hop

   Thanks for joining me again for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop.  If you are coming from Joyce Houck's blog at then you are on the right path.  This month we will be giving you a sneak peek of some new product that will debut in the Annual Inpsirations CTMH catalog beginning August 1 or showing you some artwork featuring items that are retiring July 31st.

   I have chosen to highlight some new products available August 1st.  I created this card using first and second generation stamping.  The stamp set I used is called Have a Happy Day stamp set.  I used two new ink pad colors Thistle and Flaxen.  I love them together.  I also used the new Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon.
