Friend Card Using Close To My Heart "A Friend Like You Stamp & Thin Cuts with Dream Maker Paper

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is cooler today.  We had temperatures in the 80's yesterday and now in the 60's for the high.  I think everyone is having crazy weather. 

I fell in love with the Close to My Heart Dream Maker Special and created 3 cards with the same dies; but different parts of the Dream Maker paper.  I used different animals from the CTMH A Friend Like You Stamp & Thin Cuts Z4707. This set has several animals and lots of sentiments.  Fabulous set of stamps and thin cuts.

Thank you visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoy my creations.  I appreciate all of you.  Be sure to check out my tabs at the top of the page for my videos, tutorials, clubs, specials and  more. Call, text, Facebook message or email me with any questions you might have.

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!!
