Well It has been a day full of ups and downs for me. I found the need to escape to a Happy place. I found my self sitting in my craft room colouring away. I made 4 cards today.

Here is one:

I love this House Mouse image - Jelly Bean Heist.
There is more embellishments than I usually use but I still like it! I has a clear acetate base so it looks like it is floating when open on display.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: X-Press Blending Card Stock; Basic Pink CS from Michaels

*Patterned Paper - Close to My Heart
*Images: House Mouse - Jelly Bean Heist
*Flowers; Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations - Posy patch Dies
*Ink: Tsukineko Memento - Tuxedo Black
*Embellishments: Pearls from Dollarama

I will try and add more later

Sunshine and Smiles

It has been an interesting couple of weeks at the Myers house! My son fractured a growth plate in his ankle and is in a cast. I am on a leave from school. So let's just say I have seen my fair share of doctor's waiting rooms this week! . . . anyway. . .

I had a pleasant surprise this week when I went to the mail box and found a stamp order that I completely forgot I ordered!!!! I got some great images from 'Lili of the Valley'. I have fallen in love with these stamps so be forewarned.

This is what I created today! hope you like it.

Here's what I used:
  • Images - Lili of the Valley
  • Patterned Paper - Heidi Grace Designs
  • Ribbon - May Arts
  • Cardstock from Michael's (butterfly wing collection)
  • Ink - Memento- tuxedo black; Brilliance- Orchid; Copics
  • Tools - Spellbinders nestabilities

With love and Inky hugs

Sending Help to Japan

Hi everyone,

I know that I have been thinking a lot about those effected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I can't even imagine what those families are going through. What devastation!

Close to My Heart would like to help the Japanese. When you purchase the Hope for Japan stamp set for only $5 all money goes to the Red Cross. Let's support the Japanese during this difficult time and help them rebuild their lives. To order please contact me.
