Anniversary Card Using CTMH Cherish Paper and Slimline Pattern from Make It From The Heart Volume 6

Hello friends! How are you?  It is beginning to feel a little cooler, but still not Fall weather.  LOL!  I hope you are enjoying your weather wherever you are.  

I created 2 more slimline cards; so this is one of them.  I used Pattern 31 in our new CTMH Make It From The Heart Volume 6. (pages 66 and 67).  It takes me a while to create cards; but having a pattern really helps. You can use these patterns to create any size card.  Just because it says it is for a slimline doesn't mean you can't make an A2 card with the same pattern.  I may try that next.

I was in a special launch yesterday for our new CTMH catalog that is coming out November 1st.  It is so awesome!  I didn't have time to take photos of the two cards I had created earlier this week.  

I am creating cards for my sister, Alice, so she can give them to her friends.  She writes poems; so having the card already created for her will be a big help.  She doesn't have all the tools and products that I have.  I offered to make some for her; so she won't continue to hurt her back and neck.  This anniversary card is going to a friend of hers that I know as well; so that will be fun.  Her friend will be shocked to receive a card from both of us.  LOL!

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!!
