I may not have been at the CTMH Convention this year, but I did get to see the new mission statement. I just had to share it with you! It sums up what I feel along with what I want to share so clearly. Take a moment to watch it. For Now, Happy Crafting!

The CTMH Convention starts today and it got me thinking that I really need to get back into the swing of things. As time goes by, I will share tidbits of my life changing journey, but for now, I just wanted to create a card and share it with everyone.
This card features a stamp set called "A Little Note" (A1171) and is colored with Close To My Heart's featured ShinHan markers. We already know that this cute little stamp set will not be retiring come September 1st! The pattern paper is Seaside (X7192) and it will be available through August.
I am so excited about creating again and having the opportunity to help you with your creative journey. We will be watching all the fun new products being revealed at CTMH Convention 2015. For Now, Happy Crafting!

What I thought would be easy has become a mess. My plan was to share what has been going on and even actually create a card for you. Time didn't allow so I thought I would at least share something I recently made.
So, if you have arrived here from Betty's blog Sacrapbookgirl2.blogspot.com you are on the right track.
Well I can't even get the picture posted. 0:( and it even had a hint about my new life. Ah well, I will keep trying. Hope over to Marie's blog njsstampingqueen.blogspot.com and see what she has created. I am going to keep trying to get a picture posted. For Now, Happy Crafting!

Oh my….what a day I’ve had. In the near future I will share what has gone on with me (I’m fine…just busy.) But, it is now time for the Joyful Stars Blog Hop.
If you’ve come here from Meg’s Blog you are on the right track. This month, I am featuring Sky Lark in my classes. This card is made using that paper packet and a stamp set called Love This. It is continued in the new Idea Book and is a terrific stamp set for coloring. While we are all eagerly awaiting the new CTMH markers, my classes are working with Prisma Pencils and Gamsol.
It’s time to hop on over to Elizabeth’s Blog and see what she has created for us. I can’t wait for the new CTMH Idea Book. For Now, Happy Crafting!

For this month’s hop, I thought I would feature some cards that I made using the stamp set called Banner Wishes (B1438). If you came here from Nancy’s Blog you are on the right track. For this first card, I used Banner Wishes and Ivy Lane paper packet (X7178B).
The second card uses Balloon Ride (X7180B) and Banner Wishes.
I love Banner Wishes. The set has the banner image and 6 different sentiments that fit inside. The sentiments can also be used alone.
Since I haven’t posted much in the last few weeks, I thought I would also share some of the things that I have been doing recently…working in my garden..
Well, it is time to head off to Lori’s Blog to see what she has created for us. If you get lost along the way, head off to Joyce’s Blog for a full list of participants. For Now, Happy Crafting.

If you have arrived here from Lori’s Blog, you are on the right track. For my project, I used Balloon Ride (X7180B) and Banner Wishes (B1438.) The Hot Air Balloon is from a retired stamp set.
I used the balloon from this set rather than the beautiful Hot Air Balloon in the current Idea Book because I wanted to use a coloring technique that is not often used anymore. I used my Prisma Wax Based Pencils. Because of the wax in the “lead” the technique used to blend the colors is totally different. This is one of cards and the technique I will be teaching in May. I shall share more about the technique as I develop the class.
It is time to head over to Andrea’s Blog to see what she has created for us. As always, should you get lost along the way, you can always return to Joyce’s Blog to find a list of all the participants. Enjoy the Hop. For Now, Happy Crafting!

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.
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!
