Giveaway Reminder

Don 't forget to "like" my Close to my Heart and Scentsy Facebook pages. 

When I reach 50 fans on my Close to my Heart Page, I will give away a "D" size stamp set.

At the end of November I will give away a Scentsy "travel pack" consisting of room spray, travel tin and a scent circle to one of my fans.  However if you tell a friend and they mention that they sent you, you will receive an extra entry into the draw.

There is no purchase necessary for either of these giveaways.

How cute is Sasha?  He is Scentsy Charitable Cause Buddy until January 31st.  When you purchase Sasha, 100% of the net proceeds from Sasha will go to Ronald MacDonald House Charities.

Sharing from the Heart Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the November hop!


If you have arrived from Elizabeth's blog, you're on the right track.


I have a fun little album that would be a perfect gift to share with you.  This album is made using Close to my Heart's True fit Folio's.



I love this album because it is so quick and simple to make.  And it's a great way to use up some of the left over paper you have - like the paper from WINGS that I used.

Now it's time to head over to see what Jody has to share with you. 

Don't forget to "like" my CTMH facebook page for a chance to win a prize from me.  Prize will be drawn once there are 50 fans.  And be sure to cj=heck out my Scentsy one too - I'll be posting a giveaway there on the 15th.

Last week I was given a blog award by my awesome Scentsy down line  and fellow CTMH consultant Twyla.  I have yet to meet Twyla in person, but she is most definitely a fabulous cyber buddy, and I do hope I can meet her sometime soon.  Thanks Twyla!

November Already

Here we are on the 3rd day of November and already I've fallen behind on my personal goal of posting each day to my blog.  I'm home today with a sick princess, and because she fell asleep on me before 11 am (it couldn't be because she barely slept last night), I thought I'd take advantage and get at least today's post done, and me schedule a few more.  I really should do some laundry, but that can always wait right????

I've been very busy getting some items ready -  for upcoming events, swaps and Christmas gifts.  I hope to be able to share most of them with you this month.  Some of the items use retired products, so the only way you will be able to get them is by attending one of the events.  Don't forget that if you can't make it but still would like to participate, you just need to email me to let me know.

Here's the first one I have for you:

This card uses the retired Bella paper, but I used the new Hooray Bouquet stamp set.  I love how it coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge because the flower would never look that clean if I had to cut it myself.

Don't forget to visit my facebook page and become a fan.  Once I reach 50 fans I will give away a prize to one person.

Supplies used(all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Pattern: Wishes Card Workshop
Paper: Bella
Stamps: Hooray Bouquet
Ink: Smokey Plum, Hollyhock
Embellishments: Bitty sparkle, chocolate button, colonial white brad
Other items:  cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
