Close to My Heart Blog Hop


Welcome to our Close to my Heart Summer 2009 Idea Book Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a part of this. There are over 40 consultants participating.
I had so much fun making this card. I used the new "Animal Cookies" paper and "Treetops" Stamp Set. This card was very easy to make. There was no coloring involved. I stamped the tree twice. Once in Bamboo Ink and then again in Clover Meadow Ink. I then cut out the tree top and attached it to the Bamboo colored tree. I then added red buttons for apples, stamped the sentiment and sponged Heavenly Blue ink for the sky. The card design is from the CTMH Originals Card design book.

Originals Template: Lucky Three
Paper: Animal Crackers
My Acrylix Stamp Set: Tree Tops
Ink Colors:Bamboo, Clover Meadow and Heavenly Blue
Embellishments: Holiday Craft Buttons, Summer Craft Buttons, White Ric-Rack Ribbon

Now "Hop" on over to Amberlyn's Blog. Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs and My Acrylix Stamp Sets! If you just came from Michelle's Blog, then you are heading in the right direction. If not go back to Erin's Blog to start at the beginning.
Remember, the Summer 2009 Idea Book goes LIVE on May 1st!

I love your work! It is so cute. I would like to share a website with you. I recently came across it as I was cruising the web for inspiration. The furniture at this site is every crafters dream. I am entered in a contest to win an EZ View desk. If I win, my purchase of the workbox is not too far behind. You can vote for my entry, #275 in the giveawaygallery if you like.
Thanks in advance
