Close To My Heart frames

Close To My Heart

Hello everyone, how is everyone tonight??  I have to tell you, I have had enough winter, I am soooo ready for spring, flowers, the smell of a fresh cut lawn... Oh well, only a couple more months to go.

In the mean time, lets talk Close To My Heart.  I recently purchased a couple of the Bracket frames (Z1797) that CTMH sells.  I stared at them off and on for a couple weeks, trying to figure what I would do with them.  Well as it so happens I had a babyshower coming up and thought I could maybe come up with a gift idea for it.. well once I got started. I was onfire and could not stop til it was done.  With  the use of my cricut, Artiste (z1790) and Art Philosophy(Z1686) cartridges, Babycakes(x7173b)  I also used the Special Care stamp set.

To hold the banner I sued the CTMH clothes Pin Minis (z1815) and some twine (z1751) the harvest assortment.  The inks used were the Chocolate and autimn terracotta.

So, this is what I did with one of them.  Super fun.  If you would like to try one of these your self, head over to my website here
and pick one up for yourself.  For as little as $8.95 you can have one too.  While you are there, take a look around, check out the "while supplies last" and if you spend $50.00 (before tax and shipping,) you will be eligible for the Stamp of the month, a size D stamp set valued at $17.95 for only $5.00.

thanks for stopping by. Oh and  by the way...February 1st the Spring and Summer Idea book goes LIVE!!!

 Tata for now :)
