We have a beautiful new June stamp of the month! Did you know that you can purchase Close To My Heart's SOTMs for retail? The nice thing though is that if you spend $50 then Botanical Shadows it's just $5! And, for my VIPs, it's FREE when you spend that much. Woohoo! I am hoping … Continue reading CTMH June is here!
CTMH Strawberry Mice & Dream Maker
Today is it! Can you believe that May is coming to an end? That means that Close To My Heart will put away their National Scrapbooking Day promotions - including my favorite, Strawberry Mice.

Happy Memorial Day
This is of course the reason why I am off today! We have been watching "war" movies all weekend long -- just more so than usual. But on the side I have been shopping Close To My Heart's Memorial Day sale. It goes on through the 30th! I have to tell you there are some … Continue reading Happy Memorial Day
CTMH Dream Maker Wedding
I have had Close To My Heart's Dream Maker promotion bundle sitting for TWO WEEKS just waiting to be inked up and played with...and finally it happened!

CTMH Little Stinkers SOTM
Phew! I was worried I'd run out of time before using this month's Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart one more time. It's so cute.

My husband and I were invited to a fabulous graduation / commissioning celebration at the Army Navy Club in Washington DC last night. So, of course, that event called for a card! I don't make a lot of slim line cards but the width matched my Close To My Heart Sentiments by Melissa Esplin stamp … Continue reading CTMH Congratulations Grad!
CTMH Strawberry Mice
Some cards shouldn't be shared ... and this may be one of them! I like the idea of it but my ink pad watercoloring doesn't look so great in the photograph. I probably should have used other paper number - that may be the main problem! I love Close To My Heart's Strawberry Mice bundle … Continue reading CTMH Strawberry Mice
CTMH Strawberry Mice Baby Card
Once again I chose to CASE myself when I needed to make a quick card ... back in February I posted this baby card also featuring Springtime Borders (Close To My Heart's Feb SOTM). But today I chose to use a current stamp for the main image, CTMH's Strawberry Mice from their National Scrapbooking Day … Continue reading CTMH Strawberry Mice Baby Card

My Mother's Day and MIL actually arrived EARLY this year! And, I forgot to take a picture of them - head smack! My husband told me these were particularly beautiful this year.
