Close To My Heart Flower Market Cricut Cartridge

Good Morning and I hope everyone has had a great week!  I had a fun time visiting Fort Desoto near Tampa (right where the Gulf of Mexico meets Tampa Bay) and I created a cute hostess gift.

First, let me share the little hostess gift.  Close To My Heart has a new Cricut Cartridge called Flower Market.  The images span the spectrum of creativity by including anything garden, 3D flowers, words and an alphabet font.  I love the 3D flowers because not all of them need to be rolled.  This is great because you can achieve the texture without all the "work."  CTMH has also come up with a new program called "Color of the Year."  This color is not in any of the established color groups and will be only available for the duration of the Idea Book.  This year the color is called "Sea Glass" and it is a wonderfully pale aqua as the name suggests.

The purse was cut using one of the retired CTMH Cricut cartridges.  Love Artiste...  Anyway, the hibiscus was cut with the Flower Market Cartridge, Cotton Candy, Hollyhock, Fern and Black card stock.  It is so simple.  You just cut out the layers and glue the pieces together.  The dotted paper behind is from the Calypso paper packet that is available in the current expressions mini book.  It is a fun packet that includes pineapples and pink flamingos.  Check it out on my website.  Please hurry if you like pink flamingos as the Calypso (X7210B) is only available until August 31, 2016. 

Now, for a little about Fort Desoto State Park.  The park is located in Pinellas County Florida and was originally the home to a US Army Costal Artillery Company.  Today, it is home to hundreds of species of birds and over 1100 acres of beach plants and trees.  In many circles, Fort Desoto is considered one of America's Best Beaches.

I have had a fun week!  Don't forget my friend Karen over at My Paper Studio.  She always has some fun things posted.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

CTMH … You’re The Best

Yes, I know that it has been a while since I posted.  The truth is I was out of town for several days and did not have the ability to post.  I have to admit that I did have a post ready to go the morning that I left…all I had to do was hit “send.”  Ugh…I overslept and did not want to miss my plane.  So, the post never happened.  Here we are and I am back creating again.
This is a card that I made yesterday for my upcoming card workshop.  It is the warm up card and features the CTMH Stamp Set called Banner Wishes (B1438) and the paper packet called Balloon Ride. 
Warm Up Card May 2004
I love Banner Wishes because it contains the frame along with 6 very useful sentiments for cards and scrapbooking.
Now, on to my trip…where did I go?  Sunny Florida!  A dear friend has recently moved there and after all I’ve been through in the past few months I figured I owed it to myself to go for a visit.  Those of you that know me well are aware of my love of birds.  So, I had to share some of the winged friends I saw.

And, last but not least…The Gulf of Mexico.

For Now, Happy Crafting!
