More Hello Foxy

I love this lSOTM Hello Foxy and here is another simple card I made. This stamp set is only available until June 30 so don't miss it.  I used my ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ and colored the little wreath which I thought complimented the Litte Dreamer paper.

A Little House Cleaning

It's Saturday and I thought I would do a little house cleaning. Now the "room" I'm working on this morning is my "in box" of my email. Yes I'm one of those that just can't delete emails, not even all those ads I receive. So today I'm deleting all the ads I have received. Just looking through some emails I have some dating back to 2013. Please don't judge me.

Decluttering I know in organizing you need to know want to keep and what to get rid of. I ha
d a dear friend who is a professional  organizer. Charla came and transformed by barn. My barn is were I do my crafting, host family and friend get togethers and my hubby does his hobbies also and just a wonderful place to hang out.

Ok back to my story of emails. I have a direct sale business, a very active volunteer in several organization, a wife, mother, grandmother and is my spare time enjoy paper crafting, painting and working with flowers.

I had thousands, yes thousands of emails in my inbox, so the first thing I'm doing is  deleting by groups, You know all those ad emails, I use YAHOO and it allows you to call up all the emails from one sender and delete them all at one time. So that's what I been doing and I'm making some head way.

 I'm getting back to my project. Hope you have a great Saturday and I'll give you an update later.  Contact me if you like. 

Happy Saturday!!!

Retiring Stamp Sets - Get them before they are gone

Welcome to the Close To My Heart - Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop. Now if you have hopping over from  Gina's Blog you are on the right track.  July 31, 2017 the Annual Inspiration will be retiring and with that we will be saying good by to many, many wonderful stamps.

Like so many people they love their home state. I'm from Texas with a true southern accent and proud of it. I  used the retiring State of Texas stamp and with the sapphire from  Enchantment Fundamentals paper was just the right blue and Cranberry Ink for a deeper red. I then added a bakers twine from Enchanted Ribbon Pack and Sequins Silver Assortment
All supplies are Close To My Heart

Shaker Card

This card was inspired by a blog hop that will happen in a few days. "Shake It Up" I had never made a shaker card and thought I would give it a try. After several hours of searching the internet this is what I came up with.

I'm a purest when it comes to using Close To My Heart supplies so this is 100% CTMH. For the clear card I used a 4x4 flip flap, the confetti is the little pieces from the "Little Dreamer" complements and the paper is also Little Dreamer. Now the envelope is from the bulk pack and I just cut it down and added some adhesive to the sides so a 4x4 card would fit.


Thank for stopping by and come back often.  Please if you have any questions just let me know.

CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Hello Foxy

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the stamp set "Hello Foxy". which will only be available until June 30th.  If you have hopped over from Priscilla's Blog you are on the right track but if you have just happened along the way, you are in for a treat. The hop is one big circle that will take you to 23 different Blogs of some of the most talented "Close To My Heart" Independent Consultants.

I loved playing with this new stamp set and will be sharing some more project this month but for this hop I kept it simple. I used Whimsy Fundamentals paper with Whimsy Carkstock Smoothie and I chose black ink for the sentiment and the wreath and whisper for the outline of the little fox. I then pulled out my Watercolor Pencils and the small watercolor brush and let my inner child take over.

Thank you so much for hopping by and before you hop over to Haley's Blog I would love for you to leave me a comment and think about  follow me you just never know what I may be up too. If you have any questions about this or any Close To My Heart produces please contact me.
