Close to my Heart Customer Testimonial

I really don't like posting a blog without any artwork or photos so here is a card created by CTMH Consultant Mary Jane Bedel.  She doesn't have a blog to share her beautiful artwork, but she soon will. This card is made using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

What I want to share with you is this testimonial by my friend, Capri.  Many of us have wanted a Cricut and have waited... for the price to drop...  for the technology to get better...  for someone to gift it to us...  for a lot of different reasons.  One of which, for me, was to wait until I decided I really needed it.

Capri is one who has waited.  I just love that the exclusive Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge may have been her tipping point!

Didja Notice Anything New?

My blog has some new features that I'd like to bring to your attention.  Just below my blog title is a dark stripe containing tabs to other pages.  The first tab after the Home page tab says Workshops, Classes & Crops.  If you left click on that tab you will be taken to my calendar of upcoming events. How cool is that?

When you are on my calendar page each event that is highlighted and italicized has its own page.  If you left click on an event you will be transported to that event's page with all the details you need to know about it.

The tab bar remains visible no matter which page you are on and you can easily return to my mail blog just by left clicking on "Home."

Do you like it?  I sure do!

Wedding & Roxie Gift card

These are cards I made when on my trip to Seattle last week.  This first one is for my nephew's wedding.  I was told their colors were brown & teal so I chose Chocolate, Twilight & Colonial White CS.  The pattern for this card is in our Wishes book.

I did two cards with Roxie papers.  These are gift card holders and I love the design!  The first is for our niece and her husband who were our fabulous hosts during our stay in Seattle. 

The second is for show & tell at my upcoming open house.  And yes, you are invited!


 Thanks for stopping by!  If you are in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area I hope to see you at my open house.
