Contest Card

I submitted this card as an entry to the Card Contest at the CTMH Regional Celebration in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago. All submissions had to follow these criteria: "Create a card of any size featuring the Mini-Medley Accents White Daisy collection, showcasing unique uses or applications of these versatile accents."

Well, obviously, I didn't win (I wasn't even in the Top 5) or I would have told you about it by now! It was fun to try, though, and I still *really* like this card. The tiny white flowers are brads from the Mini-Medley Accents White Daisy collection. The centers of the flowers are tiny little rhinestones. I think this would make a great Mother's Day card!


Paper: Emporium B&T (CTMH), Twilight cardstock (CTMH), Sweet Leaf cardstock (CTMH), White Daisy cardstock (CTMH)
Embellishments: Clear Sparkles (CTMH), Natural Hemp (CTMH), Sweet Leaf Marker (CTMH)

Do Princesses Jump?

We recently had my daughter's 3rd birthday party and I made the invitations, of course! The invitation text was printed on cardstock and slides into a pocket behind the white scalloped border. A jumping party with a princess theme? Hmmm.... do princesses jump?!?!? Well, mine did!

Stamps: Princess (CTMH), It's a Party (CTMH)
Paper: Daydream B&T (CTMH), Sweet Leaf cardstock (CTMH), Lilac Mist cardstock (CTMH), White Daisy cardstock (CTMH)

Winobella

I made this cute card a while back, knowing that I would send it to one of my dear friends for a birthday. Well, I'm mailing it out today, and thought I'd better take a picture of it first! I paper-pieced the dress, meaning I stamped the image on patterned paper, cut it out and adhered it over the image stamped on the white cardstock.


Stamps: Winobella (Stamping Bella), Happy Birthday (CTMH).
Paper: Stylin' (CTMH-retired), Hollyhock cardstock (CTMH), Black cardstock (CTMH), White Daisy cardstock (CTMH).
Embellishments: CTMH markers, Sparkles (CTMH), Black/white ribbon (CTMH).

My Recent Trip

OK, so it's been 5 months since my last post... well.. all I can say is time has flown by! The plate party in October was a huge success, although we were rained out one night when the streets in my neighborhood flooded. Very strange.

Anyway, I just wanted to share some pictures that I took on my recent trip to Phoenix to the Close To My Heart Regional Celebration. I traveled there with my friend and downline, Misty Leach. We had the best time and feel energized about our businesses. Best of all, we got to meet the founder of Close To My Heart, Jeanette Lynton. She is SO nice and accomodating. She took time to take pictures with us and chat with us about our business. She was very encouraging. Here's me with Jeanette:



...and here's me with Jeanette and my downline, Misty Leach. We were thrilled to meet Jeanette!



Jeanette Lynton has a blog, too. She recently posted some of her own pictures of the Phoenix Regional Celebration, and I'm in the picture (well, from the back)! You can see my short brown hair and fuschia shirt in the second picture. It looks like I'm working VERY hard on something!

It was a great weekend of learning, paper crafting and meeting lots of great people. Definitely worth the time and money!
