CTMH Share A Smile - Punny Pals Stamps, Thin Cuts, Card Set and more! October 2017 Special

Hello friends.  This has been a rough year for many people; with all the fires, hurricanes, shootings and earthquakes.  My heart goes out to everyone who has suffered a loss this year.   It is challenging times for the people in the US; as well as other countries also affected by natural disasters.

I wanted to share three cards that I created with the CTMH October special, Punny Pals.  It comes as a card kit; which includes the dies, 9 pages of cardstock, 1 page of glitter, 32 (3 x 3) cards and envelopes.  The Operation Smiles Punny Pals stamp set is sold separately; and $7 is donated to the children through Operation Smiles for each stamp set purchased.   You can also purchase the set of 13 animal dies separate; if you don't want the full card kit.  I decided to create 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sized cards for my customers.  I plan to use the 3 x 3 cards later.

There are 13 different animals and 23 sentiments on this stamp set.  Aren't they adorable?  The dies cut so easily; and this set is so much fun to create adorable cards.   I love it and will use it in the future as well.

Sympathy Card Using Anna Griffin Charming Vintage Collage Toppers

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is doing well; and enjoying fall weather by now.  It is supposed to be a little cooler here in Southern CA today; the upper 80's rather than 90's and 100's.  I can't believe it is still so hot.  I am ready for fall weather. 

I created several cards in the past few months; and thought I would share one of them.  I am taking a break from my two Design teams; but I still want to give you something to enjoy while I am taking this break.


I love CTMH and I love stamping and coloring; but I also love card kits that are easy to use. It makes my life so much easier; especially when I need a card quickly; like this Sympathy card.  I just love pretty cards; and I love the toppers that are already colored and foiled.  

Be sure to scroll down for the CTMH October special this month; which is "Punny Pals" card kit; which includes the 13 dies for cutting all the cute little critters.  The "Punny Pals" stamp set is an "Operation Smiles" stamp set; which means $7.00 from each stamp set sold; is sent to Operation Smiles for helping children in that program.  The stamp set is sold separately.  You can also purchase the dies separately; if you don't want the full card kit.  Click here for more details.

Sympathy Card Using Imagine That Digis "Pretty Petunias" and CTMH Some Kind Of Wonderful Paper

Hello friends!  I am at a loss for words with all that has happened with the massive killing spree in Las Vegas.  I have cried a lot of tears and said a lot of prayers for those who attended this concert; and had to go through this horrible act of terror.  Also for those brave people who acted quickly and saved so many lives.  I am so sad for those who were injured, lost a loved one or have someone you know that was injured or killed.  There are no words for my deep condolences to all of you who were there.  I know the memory of this horrific event will stay with you for a long time.  It is a very sad time for the United States with so many of these mass killings happening.

I am taking a much needed break from my two Design Teams; but didn't want you to forget me while I am off.  LOL!  I am sharing a Sympathy card I created previously; but haven't shared yet.  I used one of the colored images from Imagine That Digis "Pretty Petunias"; which is one of my very favorite Digi sets.  Kris is an extraordinary artist and friend.  I was on her Design team years ago; when I first started making cards.  I had never used a Digi before working with Kris.  She taught me so many wonderful things and I am very grateful to her.  I continue to use her wonderful creations whenever I can.
