Use Your Stash - April - Bling Showers

Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop - Bling. I'm sure the CTMH Independent Consultant has done some blinging up.  Now if you have come from  .Joy 's Blog  you are on the right track ,

When I first stated thinking about what I would create Stars & Stripes were no even in my thoughts.  I was at my 5th Saturday Crop and one of the ladies was working on a patrotic layout and I thought of a flag.....I could use the red shimmer trim. I first thought about putting 50 little bitty sparkles on it but I went with the Star from the Cricut® Artiste Collection  out of the Black & Grey Glitter Paper. 

All products are Close to My Heart.

Now before you hop on over to Terry's Blog.    Please leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you. Thanks for hopping by and come back often.

Make It From The Heart Monday

Today I thought I would share one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen which was given to me from my new friend Jan. Jan & I have been friends on Facebook for some time. In February we met face to face and we really hit it off.

I invited her to attend my 5th Saturday Crop last month & she came and we had a great time.

Thank you, Jan!!!!!!!
