Welcome to our Prickly Pear Blog Hop!
We will be showcasing items from our Prickly Pear Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Diana’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start at the CTMH Blog Challenge and Support Group Blog Hop Guidelines beginning with our hostess Carol.
The Prickly Pear paper pack was so fun to work with. This is such a bright, fun, and versatile kit that you should not feel limited to only using desert & cactus photos or cards. Along with the Prickly Pear papers, I used the Scripty Thank You stamp set that coordinates with the Thin Cuts – Basic Ovals available from Close to My Heart.
Check out these bright colors HERE!
These cards were part of my monthly card kit for August and you can find out more information HERE.
This is your final stop on this month’s Prickly Pear blog hop. If you did not start at the beginning, please hop to Carol’s blog next and start at the beginning.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all the fabulous ideas from these talented Close to My Heart consultants!

This months featured paper pack is Prickly Pear and I chose to use it to make Thank You cards. I used the Scripty Thank You stamp from the current Seasonal Expression 2 catalog and it coordinates perfectly with the Thin Cut Basic Ovals set.
When I first saw this paper pack at the release of the Seasonal catalog, I did not know what I would do with it. You see cacti and more cacti and think desert and sand only…. but it has bright colors and was so easy to work with.
