Birthday Card Using Close To My Heart "Hello Darlin" Cardmaking Workshop Kit

Hello Friends!   I hope you are doing well.  It was hot yesterday and now it is cooler again.  LOL!  Crazy weather.  

I created one of the cards from the Close To My Heart "Hello Darlin" cardmaking Workshop, G1282; which retires at the end of June or "while supplies last".   Normally I create a different pattern than the card kit; but these are perfect the way they are.  I will probably create more later.  

This kit includes paper, cardstock, stamp and thin cuts (dies), 16 card bases with envelopes and sparkles.  The kit includes everything you need to create the cards except your ink and the 3D foam (if you choose to use it).  It is a really fun card kit and I loved creating with the different pattern of stars.  See below for a list of Kit contents.  It also comes with instructions; which include cutting and layout, etc.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!
