Golf, Anyone?

My husband is a golf fanatic so I seem to have collected a lot of golf related dies, stamps, etc.  So when a friend asked me to make a golf/birthday card for her brother, I knew right away what I was going to do.

I used my Cricut Silhouette to create both of these.  The inside of the card says "It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing." I used an embossing folder to create the background. The box card is my favorite of the two.

Thanks for stopping by to check me out!

CTMH Paper Blog Hop - Zoe

Welcome to our Blog Hop where I, along with the creative consultants from the Heartfelt Sentiments Team are featuring CTMH's newest paper pack, Zoe.  If you are coming from Melissa David's blog, you are on the right track. 

Zoe is a new paper pack that came out with the new Close to My Heart Idea Book/Catalog. It is a set of 6 coordinating designs that are sure to have inspire your creativity.  

I have been wanting to create a Bag in a Box for the longest and this set of papers afforded me the perfect opportunity to create a bag with coordinating 4x4 cards.  I also created a simple accordion fold card that shows off the great combination of pattern papers that I probably would have never combined on my own. 

I also used stamps from this month's Stamp of the Month set "Framed" which is available the entire month of August for only $5 with any $50 order.

Well thank you for stopping by!  Please be kind and leave a comment before you head over to Aggie Peter's blog.

Happy National Ice Cream Day!


I'll bet you didn't know that July 19th is National Ice Cream Day, did you?  Who comes up with these "days" anyway?  Shoot, I'm in Texas, it's close to 100 degrees.  EVERY day is ice cream day!
Anyway, it just so happens that I made this card today to send to an old friend in Cleveland who is an ice cream fiend.  She is going to love it!

The stamps are by Close to My Heart from a set called  "Ice Cream Dream."  The set is no longer available, it was the special stamp of the month for April. :-(   Sorry you missed it but you still have time to get the July Stamp of the month for $5 with a $25 order. (see the stamp set below.) But you'll have to hurry!  This offer expires July 31st.  Check out my CTMH "shop with me" link to see the free stamp set and place your order online.
Don't hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions.
