Thinking of You card Using CTMH Cherish - Cardmaking Stamp with CTMH Mix In July - August Paper Pack

Hello friends!  I hope you are having a nice day.  I know the USA is celebrating July 4th holiday/Intendance Day.  I have been hearing fireworks for over a week already.  LOL!  It has been extremely hot here in Southern CA for a few days now.  It was over 100 degrees several days in a row.  I think I read that it is hot all over the US right now.  Please stay cool and drink a lot of liquids.

I have been creating cards and have 9 new ones in the past week.  I don't think I have been this creative in years.  LOL!  I am taking advantage of my creativity and having so much fun.  I have started a system with CTMH Stamp organizers for some of my stamps that will hopefully allow me to remember to use new ones.  I have been finding all kinds of gorgeous stamps and papers that I have not used at all.  

I used the CTMH Cherish - Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts Z8049 (Stamp set only is C1958); and the stamp set is still available.  I love this stamp and it would be easy to fussy cut if I didn't already have the thin cuts.  It is perfect for every type of card that you would need; except maybe some men may not want flowers on their cards.  LOL! I used the new CTMH Mix In Paper Pack July/August (X9050) for the paper and the strip across the middle is from CTMH Four Seasons - Summer Paper Pack - X8035 (retired).  I almost always purchase at least 2 packs of the Mix In Papers. They are fabulous!

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!!
