Happy Birthday to me

It’s been a busy week (well, more like a busy month!) and I didn’t want my special day (August 27th) to go uncelebrated.  While I am celebrating with family a few days late this year, I want you to be able to celebrate my birthday as well.

So, for every $20.00 you spend on my CTMH Website Saturday August 30th, I will send you a FREE Shin-Han Marker of your color choice.  This is a great way to see how awesome these new markers are.

Shin-Han Markers CTMHShin-Han alcohol based markers have been on the market for over 20 years.  They feature a dual tip – brush and chisel – and are designed square so that they won’t roll off the table.  They are comparable to Copic brand makers, are fast drying, low odor and very juicy!

Also, don’t forget I have this special going on, too:  When you place an order of $50.00 or more on my website by August 31, you will receive a paper packet of your choice ($9.95 value) – FREE.

A little Yuletide Carol can go a long way

CTMH Yuletide CarolWe’re only a couple of months away from Christmas so I thought I’d play a bit with the Close To My Heart Yuletide Carol papers.  I tried to create a somewhat easy layout with not a lot of embellishments.  However, I really had a lot of fun making cards with this kit.

CTMH Yuletide Carol Cards

I think my favorites ended up being the one with the scooter and tree (above) as well as the one directly above it in the center with the resin rose.  So much fun!

Happy Bird-day Treat Bag

August 14 SOM Treat BagWith my birthday coming up (next week) I decided to sit down and play with the adorable August Stamp of the Month and the new Close To My Heart Treat Bags.  I used the festive Chalk It Up papers and a few pieces of bling.  I really like how it turned out which is why I’m excited to share it with you.
