One of my Christmas cards this year....

Hi again, I thought I would share one of the Christmas cards I am creating to give out this year.  For inspiration I used the sketch from the atlantic hearts challenge sketch 85 and the colours from color my heart color dare color-dare-122-cranberry-sorbet-olive.  This is what I came up with: 
I used my cuttlebug and one of my dies to cut the shaped paper and handcut the flag with Rejoice.  I love this angel stamp it looks so pretty, it is one of our hostess stamps available only to hostesses with qualifying orders.  All supplies are Close to my Heart and available for you to purchase with the shopping cart on the right.  Interested in a fun evening out, join me for one of my card workshops, we make four or more different designs and have  a great social night out.  Watch my calendar for my upcoming workshop in mid January 2015.

Did you know we have jewellry???

Did you know that Close to my Heart sells jewelry that you can create and personalize for yourself?  I recently saw the cuff bracelet and the new oval necklace and decided to pick some up to make for myself.  The thing that took the longest was to choose which of the stickers I wanted to use in each piece.  
The sayings and backgrounds are all so beautiful...my grand daughters all wanted me to use the just keep swimming.... label, but that was for their memories of swimming this past summer.  It only takes a very few minutes to create your jewelry, use the cover from the pieces to trace around the label and trim to fit, place on jewelry piece.  Then cover it with a layer of liquid glass, put the glass cover, press firmly, wipe off excess glue and enjoy.



As you can see beautiful jewelry to enjoy.
Supplies used: 
Base & Bling oval pendant in faux antiqued silver Z2008 (you get three in the pack)
Base & Bling chain in faux antiqued silver Z1940
Base & Bling glass covers oval Z2011 (again 3 in the pack)
Base & Bling oval cuff in faux antiqued silver Z2035

All of these can be purchased via my web site or emailing me.  If you would like quick Christmas gifts make sure to order by December 12th.
