Artfully Sent Birthday Card and Flash Special

I had a few minutes to pull out the brand new Artfully Sent cartridge from Close to my Heart the other day and I made this quick card for a friend's birthday.  I must say that it was fairly simple to make and it turned out to be so pretty.  I used the paper from the Ariana collection which has retired, but other paper would be beautiful as well.  No I must tell you that the printed panel on the left side of the card is not a Cricut cut.  I actually hand cut that to fit the spot.  I think that the next time that I use this, I will cut the card in patterned paper and the accent in the solid just to see how the words pop.  It's definitely going to be fun to experiment with this cartridge.

Don't forget that anyone who purchases this cartridge (or any other purchase) on the "Artfully Sent" gathering found on my site here, between now and October 11th will be eligible to enter a drawing to receive all the hostess rewards earned on that gathering.  Woo Hoo!  That's…

Fabulous! Easy Card

I know that it has been quite awhile since I posted a craft video.  I haven't spent hardly any time in the craft room.  However, I did spend some time making this cute little card.

Here's what you need to get started (Clicking on the items will take you directly to them in my CTMH store):

This video tells you about the card.  I was not using the tripod, so pardon the shakiness.

You don't want to miss out on my fabulous special where you could earn the hostess rewards without hosting a gathering.  For full details, click here.

On October 11, I will notify the winner of the drawing and that person will receive whatever hostess rewards are available from that Gathering.  The Artfully Sent cartridge is fabulous and I will soon be posting a card from it.  Here is your chance to purchase it and maybe get some great extra goodies.
