Blast From the Past

In my post on Friday I mentioned that I was going to work on some cards and use up some of the paper I have lying around.  Well I found a bag of partially finished cards so I decided to work on those instead.

The cards I'm sharing today are the very first cards I made with Close to my Heart products.  I think we made 10 cards using a one sheet wonder at a scrapping retreat I was at.  This was when I fell in love with their stamps and came right home to find a consultant near me.

I do have to warn you that they are fairly basic.  When I found them last night the card was put together, but I added the sentiment and the bling to them.

I'm sorry I don't remember what the flower stamp set is called, and I'm not sure of the paper colours that were used.  But I do know that A Little Thanks, and  A Little Everything were used for the sentiments as well as pearl opaques adhesive gems and an old connections club rewards for the embellishments.

Check back later in the week for more cards.

New Artwork

I am planning on working on a few cards this weekend and will post them as soon as possible.  On the list of cards to make are:
  • Birthday invitations with a farm theme
  • Thank you cards
  • Winter holiday cards
  • Christmas cards
And I'm hoping to use of some of my older, retired paper to do them.

I'm also planning to get my newsletter ready to send out.  Not only will it give you the information about Close to my Heart's campaign for July, it will also tell you and you can help me celebrate my birthday and get a gift!  If you don't already receive my newsletter, contact me today with "CTMH Newsletter" in the subject line.

So check back over the next couple of days to see what I've created.

Miracle Birthday and New Team Name

 I thought I didn`t have any new creations to share with you.  But I looked and found this card that we made at a workshop last month.

 You may have noticed that one of the pages on the blog has been changed from Creative Canadians to Creative Canucks.  When I named my team last year, I guess someone else already had the name.  So when it was discovered I had to change mine because she had hers first.  So while I was changing the title of that page, I changed some of the content in it as well as some of the content in the other pages.  Be sure to check them out so you can see what`s new.

Supplies used(all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Pattern: from Wishes Book
Paper: Miracle
Stamps: Piece of Cake
Ink: Twilight ink; Tulip marker, Sweet Leaf marker, Twilight marker
Embellishments: Chocolate buttons, liquid applique

Just Fanning ....

So here's yet another reason why I love my kids and the things they say .....

We were almost home after spending almost a whole day in the car traveling.  All of a sudden hubby and I see a hat out of the corner of our eyes.  Hubby says to Monkey :I hope you're not hitting Princess with your hat."

Monkey's reply:  "No daddy.  I'm fanning her because she's hot."
