Puns of Praise Little Cards

Hello there!!
It's has been a long time since I posted and it's not because I haven't been busy, I have.
This summer break has gone so fast that I can hardly believe it. It is already the end of July and I am starting my yearly 'pout' about school starting way too soon.
I have been busy with my scrapbooking business and all the latest from Close To My Heart. We are wrapping up the Spring/Summer catalog and getting ready to debut the new Fall/Winter catalog. Oh boy, are we all in for some fun. The new products and paper collections are gorgeous and I can't wait to dig into the packages of new items I ordered.
But first, I would like to share with you the set of cards we did the other night in my monthly Card Class. We used the CTMH stamp set- Puns of Praise, and made a nice little set featuring each of the seven stamps in the set. This set will not appear in the Fall/Winter catalog but can still be purchased until January. The set number is C1535. If you'd like to purchase this set for yourself, please click over to my Close To My Heart site. While you are there you will be able to browse the specials and as always, check out the 'While Supplies Last' section for last minute goodies!
Here you go:
From Left to Right top: Looking Good, Time flies when I'm with you, You're the light of my life, You're sew thoughtful, You're magnificent
bottom: You're a picture of perfection, I'm your biggest fan.

I used Kraft Paper for all of the bases and made envelopes for the little ones from the Kraft Paper, also.
For the two larger cards I used Colonial White Envelopes. These were fun and the ladies enjoyed them
and had some clever ideas about who they would be good for.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon!

Super Workshop/Crop Update

Hello again,
I have had to change the date of my big Workshop/Crop to August 17th, 2013. I had trouble securing the location I had wanted and am pleased to announce that we will be meeting at New Life Christian Academy in Kimbal, Michigan from 9:00a.m. till 7:00 p.m.
Please e-mail me at if you have questions or would like to register. Please see previous post (I changed the date in it to August 17th) for more information about the Workshop/Crop.
I am getting more excited about this event every day.
Thanks for stopping by,

Summer Break, My Foot.

Hi everyone. And thanks for stopping back. I know I haven't written in ages.

My son finished school for Summer Break the first week of June and I have to tell you, it really wasn't a 'break' until last week. We have been so busy with appointments, road trips and just stuff that I was actually excited not to have anything on the calender last week.
I am working on a Super Workshop/Crop for August 17th, here in my town. I say Super because it is going to be something different than any crops I have heard of. You know how you can Super Size your meal at the drive-thru joints? Well that's what I am doing for my crop. As a rule when you sign up for a crop you expect certain things. You get your table to work at, meals for the time period you are there, door-prizes, if it is a fund-raiser you might have raffles, 50/50 drawings etc. My Super Workshop/Crop will have most of that except the 50/50. PLUS my ladies will be given a kit when they arrive that includes a $20.00 chipboard album kit, a 6 x 6 16-page album to fill and a secret surprise that my family has been busy helping me make. Altogether the kit they receive with their registration will be over $30 in products. As an added bonus, my daughter in law from Pittsburg is trying to arrange her schedule to be here for the crop and that means a Super double bonus for me in that I get to see not only her but the grand-babies and my son. Now here's the good part: My son is a fantastic, very gifted cook. If all goes as I am hoping, he will be preparing the evening meal for us. The cost for the 10 hour crop is $55.00 per person.
So tell me, when have you been to a day crop that included all of that? Ok, so maybe you have, but you didn't have me to entertain you all day!
Remember, the crop will be in Port Huron, Michigan on August 17th, 2013. I have a very limited seating available and that is why I am able to have the amazing kits for my ladies. If you are interested in coming to this, I will need your registration fee as soon as possible to guarantee your spot. Please reply to my e-mail at if your have questions or interest.

Thanks again for stopping by,
