06/22 Happy Father's Day

So I am alittle late - oh dear. Bruce and I celebrated another VERY quiet holiday as our boys are on opposite ends of the country and my family is too far away for a quick visit. But I love making cards for my family and so I made this circle golf card for Bruce from the new Wishes Card Confidence Program. He is golfing again after a two year hiatus.

06/11 Check out this purse and card project Using D1350 Tender Tags!

It is summer vacation and I love it! Time to play and create! I found this awesome site "Inking Idaho" - check it out here. She has an assortment of very thorough tutorials and I purchased this one for a purse which holds 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards and envelopes - isn't it awesome?

The purse is made with the X7097 Game On paper - can you believe it?? I pulled the papers that would work with this idea and you would never know it.

Here is another view of the cards and purse. Enjoy!

Welcome to the June SOM Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog hop. This month over 40 CTMH consultants are featuring the June SOTM, which is D1350 Tender Tags. This stamp set has 15 thoughtful messages which will complement cards, gifts and even scrapbook pages.

If you have come here from Jena's Blog, you are on the right path. I am thrilled to select my card design from our new Wishes Card Confidence Program which you can purchase through my website for $29.95.

My card is a 3 1/2" x 8" card which I adapted from the Name Tag card design found on page 18. I used the X7111 Moon Doggie Paper pack and accented the design with ink colors of cocoa, sunflower and cranberry. The Z280 Natural hemp and Z293 pewter photo hangers matched the design perfectly.

Now hop on over to Deb's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all of the consultants at their blogs to find some additional creative ideas using this stamp set. Remember it is only available from June 1 - 30, 2009! Click on my website to shop online and purchase all of these products and find additional artwork using your CTMH products.
