Door Hanger Using CTMH Chantilly With Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #55 - Anything Goes But A Card.

Hi there.  This is a very special day for me.  I am celebrating my one year anniversary with Close To My Heart (CTMH)!  This past year has been an awesome experience.  I am grateful for this experience and for all of you - my customers, my followers and everyone who has supported me in blog land.  I cherish each of you.  You are a loving, supportive, kind and generous group of people.  You have given me such joy and acceptance since I joined you a year ago.  Thanks from the bottom of my heart!!  Scroll down for my free gifts and specials for the remainder of March and April to celebrate my anniversary with CTMH.

I hope all of you are having fun creating and enjoying your life.  It is another beautiful day in Southern CA.  I actually had time to spend with my husband last Sunday; which is rare.  We went to lunch and then to the beach for a walk.  It was so nice outside.  We were just talking about our whale watching trip we took several years ago and how we would like to go again.  I won a free trip for sighting the first whale that day; but we didn't go back to use the winning ticket.  While talking about it; we were blessed with a wonderful surprise - A Grey whale and over 15-20 dolphins were swimming fairly close to the shore.  This was the first time we have seen a Grey whale close up near the shore.  It was breathtaking!!  We were in awe of their beauty!  It has been a while since I saw dolphins there as well.  It reminded me that I need to take more time to enjoy nature; especially the beach.  They weren't close enough for pictures or I would show them to you.
 
It is another fabulous week for Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge 55 - Anything Goes But A Card.  Our sponsors this week are Meljen's Designs, Bugaboo Stamps and SkDigis.  I hope you will take time to enter our challenge this week.  Be sure to check out all the wonderful creations by our Design team.  Our Guest Designer this week is Chrissy.  Check out her blog as well.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer; please add GDT behind your name when you enter the challenge.  Good luck to everyone who enters. 
 
I chose Meljen's Designs "Fancy Butterfly" for my image this week.  I had a challenge with this one since I normally create cards and scrapbook pages.  This is my first time to create something else.  It was fun.  I changed my mind about six times before finally making this door hanger for my granddaughter's birthday.  I didn't cut the slit in it yet.  I decided to wait and let her mother do that in case she wants to hang it somewhere else.  I am sure her other three kids will want me to create them one after they see hers; which I look forward to doing.  The grandkids always love and appreciate anything I create; even if it looks terrible to me.  LOL!

    PS: the hanger may not need a slit put in it depending on the style of the door handle. I've made several which work just fine with the cut out circle. Hope this helps. Hx
