Slimline Birthday Card Using CTMH October Stamp of the Month - From Owl of Us (Option with thin cuts)

Hello friends!  How are you?  I almost forgot to add my message.  LOL!  I ate food last night from a local restaurant and I have been up all night from it.  It is really sad that all my favorite restaurants have gotten really bad since COVID.  They appear to no longer care about having good food.  I keep hoping it will go back to the way they were before COVID; but it hasn't happened.  I guess I am going to have to stop eating.  Even the groceries are no longer quality items; especially meat and eggs.  There are more bad than good in the past 2 yrs.  

I created two cards using the new CTMH October SOTM - From Owl of Us.  This one comes with an option of thin cuts; which I really love.  I also used CTMH Irresistibles Cardstock; which is so much fun to work with.  You color it whatever you want and then wipe it off with a paper towel; which then reveals the white.

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!!
