MOJO Monday 273

Surprised myself just now!!  I was thinking that I missed posting this on MOJO Monday 273 and I just noticed that I didn't miss it.  I guess it's because I made it the day after that challenge posted then forgot all about it. 

The day after being Christmas day and since we had no family here this year we just relaxed and I played with some of my Christmas gifts.  This paper was from my dear sweet daughter, she got it on a Black Friday deal she couldn't resist at Archiver's it is from My Mind's Eye.  

I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge for the cut outs and the stamp sets are CTMH too, the roses are part of the upcoming January 2013 Stamp of the Month set and the "greetings" stamp is part of the For My Friend set. I love this little word and this particular version of it. The more I use this cartridge the more I think every paper crafter should own it!  It comes in a bundle with coordinating chipboard elements and stamp sets which makes it a great deal at $99, but...if you host a gathering in person, by book or by "e-party" that reaches $250 you can purchase it for 1/2 price!  Email me if you would like to know more.

Close to My Heart - Whooo's Your Valentine - Tuesday Morning Sketch #178

Well, I'm happy to say that I have taken a little time off over the holidays and will have lots to show you the next few days. 

I'm pretty dang proud of this card that I made to enter the challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketch #178.  I REALLY took  this challenge to heart.  The reason this was a challenge for me is because I scheduled a pop-up card for my monthly workshop for January, and I haven't made one in a VERY long time.  It was super easy with the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge, just cut and assemble.  The front of the card is a sketch from the CTMH Make it From Your Heart Volume I.  

 This is the first creation I've made using the stamp set from the Close to My Heart Whooo's Your Valentine kit.  The kit is a promotion that is only available until January 31st,  check out the video in my previous post if you would like to know more about it or to purchase you can contact me or go to my website   Take a look at the photo below and you will see there's lot's more in the kit in addition to this cute set.  It's just $10 with a $35 purchase from our Fall/Winter 2012/2013 Catalog.

Hope you enjoyed this cute little card. If you're interested in seeing more wonderful CTMH products I have a Catalog/Idea Book free for the asking to the first 3 people who contact me and provide their mailing address so I can send it.
