Make it from the Heart Monday

Monday is almost over with so this is a quick post sharing a card that I made during the
 CTMH convention in Disney World this past June featuring new paper, stamp and card
 that will be available August 1.  
I'm working on a card workshop this fall for these wonderful new swing cards.

Make it from the Heart Monday.

What I'm sharing this Monday is the 12x12 Canvas Workshop that will be happening, Sunday, July 28, 2pm at my Barn.  This workshop is a steal at $23, yep that is more than 55% off retail price.

 These pictures are of my favorite subjects, my grand kids made some years ago, but I thought they were perfect for the project. Hope you like it and please let me know if you plan to attend the workshop, space is limited. email at . 

I choose the yellow and green with a little red.

What a great time at the "Close To My Heart" convention at Walt Disney World. I was blessed to have my family with me for a wonderful vacation.  My four grandkids were so appreciative for such a wonderful vacation.

My head has been spinning with all the new products from the new Fall Winter 2013 Idea Book.  I'm looking forward to spreading the word of the new produces and new customs that will enjoy crafting  home decor and jewelry. Yep you heard right, jewelry.  My granddaughter loved, loved a necklace I made and you will too.

Staring next week, each Monday I will be posting "Make It From The Heart Monday" which will feature CTMH designs, products, tips and more. 

These is your invitation to join me as we Rediscover Close To My Heart together.
