August 30th. I have been so busy working out of town since March two to three weeks a month. Staying in a hotel weekly is not very conducive to creating new artwork. However, I am so excited to have our new Close To My Heart Idea Book and the opportunity to participate in the SOTM Bloghop this month. I am hoping to do some creating over the Labor Day week-end with some wonderful friends and fellow consultants, so I will have something to post here. Take a look at my card for the SOTM Bloghop to go live tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. I hope those who were caught in the path of Irene are well and safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Wow - It is March already. My niece from California was here this weekend to make Save The Date cards for her wedding in September. She took them all home before I could snap a pix and post it to the blog. They were so cute. Oh well, we will be doing invitations in June, I'll post one of those. Hope to have some new artwork up this weekend and I am participating in the SOTM Bloghop for CTMH consultants in April. I'm excited.

Making good use of Super Bowl time, here are 3 of the Valentine Day cards I have for my card class on the 10th. We will be using fabric like the card with LOVE on it. I hope you enjoy the cards.

Here it is January 30th, boy where did the month go. I have added some layouts to my blog, I hope you enjoy them. The new Spring/Summer 2011 Close To My Heart catalog goes live on February 1st. Let me know if you would like one sent to you and I will make sure you get one. There is some fantabulous goodies in there.

I hope to update my blog on a weekly basis, more than likely on the week-end. I have started a Pilates class twice a week and it is back to weight watchers to get rid of those excess pounds I picked up in Europe this summer. Enjoy the layouts and card.
