10 Things stamp set from CTMH card

 Hello my friends I hope you all had a great Mother's day weekend,  I know I did.  My family and relatives all got together for a cookout and the men did the cooking and served the women , it was real nice and the food was excellent!

When we got home that afternoon,  I had a little crafting time and so I made a few cards.  One of them I made what I consider a polar bear Tear Bear, from paper I got from the Beary Scrap and made a body, head and paws to fit into a pocket I made with the papers from the Sonoma paper pack from Close to My Heart.  I love the papers I think they are so pretty. purple is becoming my new favorite color.

The stamp set has for one of it's sayings...10 Things I Miss About you, and so I put in the pocket with the bear I made 10 numbered tags for the card giver to write the 10 things on:)

One other thing I wanted to share with you is the corsage I made for my mother in law.  I made it using the Art Philosophy Cartridge  squealllll...I love that cartridge!!!  I used some tulle and glue gun, ribbon and a pin.  She LOVED it. I was thrilled,

If either of these projects inspired you to want the Art Philosophy cartridge or some of the stamps or papers from Close To My Heart...I am an independent consultant and would be glad to hook you up:))) you can go to my website here 24/7 and shop in the comfort of you jammies.  Grab a coffee and log on to the Idea/catalog and shop away at you leisure:)  If you have any questions just message me and remember with a 35 dollar purchase you can get the Dotty For you paper pack for  $5.00 ( savings of 14.95) and $50.00 or more you can get the stamp of the month  for $5.00, regularly $17.95!!   get your friends to order and you can end up with FREE merchandise, ask me for details.
