Birthday Card Using DS4J Golf Stuff digi and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project for Digi Stamps 4Joy  - Challenge 106 - Celebrating Something New

Hello friends.  Is everyone ready for Christmas?  I have my cards finished; but I haven't started getting them ready to send.  I had hoped to finish another cute Christmas CTMH card kit with reindeer on it; but haven't started it yet.  LOL.  There doesn't seem to be enough time to do it all.  

I started decorating my tree; but only have lights on it.  It seems I got side tracked with something else I had to do.  I guess I will get it done before Christmas.  LOL!  Does anyone else feel as if time is flying by; more so than usual.

It is time for another fabulous challenge at DS4J.  I created a birthday card for one my grandsons; who just turned 17 yrs. old.  They grow up so fast.  He loves golf; so I used DS4J Golf Stuff Digi.  While he was visiting; he bought two new golf clubs and shoes; with money he earned from us.  His mother sent me a video of him opening my card.  That was really awesome.  I can watch it over and over if I want to; and I feel like I am there with him.

I am so excited to introduce the NEW CTMH Rolling Tote and Shoulder Tote Organizers! Aren't they gorgeous!  I have added a video for you to review as well.  Click here for Rolling Tote and Shoulder Tote; for more information and to order yours right away on my CTMH website.  Click on the video below to see how awesome and organized they are! 

Designed to be used with our CTMH Organizers.  Click here for Annual Inspirations Idea book to view organizers.  You can use 2 large or 1 large, 1 med, and 3 smalls (as pictured in video): or you can use all small ones or 3 med size organizers together. You can mix and match on whatever will work for you and your needs.  There are also foam inserts for the small ones; based on your needs.  The organizers come with dividers in them; so they are divided inside; but these can be removed.  The Medium organizer works great for Picture My Life as well as Project Life cards.

Order as soon as you can; as the first shipment is almost gone.  They will be replacing them as quickly as they can; so don't be discouraged if you try to order and they are gone already. They are selling fast; but CTMH will be getting more each week; during the month of December and going forward.

Call, text, email or message me on Facebook for more information.  My email is purpleglocreations (at) socal (dot) rr (dot) com.  All contact information is under tab "About Me/Contact Info" at the top of my blog page.
