CTMH For Every Occasion-Tuesday Morning and Ribbon Reel Challenges

I snatched a little time for fun just now.  My daughter sent me some really cute scrapbooking embellies for Mother's Day so I couldn't wait to play with them. 

I picked the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge # 197  and a new one I just discovered Ribbon Reel Challenge #52

The "Hello" is from Close to My Heart, it's called For Every Occasion and I'll tell you it's a must have so far as I'm concerned.  There are 28 stamps!!  Click here to check it out on my site. 

Here's what I used:

CTMH Bakers Twine - Harvest Assortment
CTMH Colonial White Cardstock
CTMH Cranberry Ink Pad
CTMH For Every Occasion Stamp Set
CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge - Doiley
CTMH Scallop & Round Punch
CTMH Opaques Pearls

The Girls' Paperie by Margie - Brad

Crate Paper - Blue Gingham Paper and Emma's Shoppe Trim

CTMH Clair Paper Packet

This is the layout my clubs made in April, my plan is that they will be for our 2013 May photos but not everyone takes photos and does a current layout every month so it can be used for many other themes too.  They look so "naked" without the title & journaling but hopefully I can start posting after pictures when I finish up my monthly layouts.

CTMH Stamp Set - 4 My Friend

Well, here we go again!  I made these cards the weekend before last for the Shabby Tea Room and the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenges at the time and never linked them.  Oh well, I have two new little boxer puppies that are keeping me extra busy these days.  They're certainly not going to be little long, in fact they've already almost tripled what they weighed when we got them a month ago.

The great thing about collecting all the Close to My Heart ink pads   and owning few of their great stamp sets is that you can coordinate with pretty much ANY paper you want to use.  This stamp set is called "4 My Friend" and I use it all the time.  Each saying is in a different font there's:

Happy Birthday 
Hooray for you
Cheer Up
4 My Friend
Miss you like crazy
Wishing you congrats
Sorry for  your loss

I stamped in Pear ink, the cut outs are from the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The paper was some DCWV that I picked up on clearance a while back. The ink, stamp set and the cartridge are all available to purchase on my website
