Welcome to my little corner in the world of papercrafting! About a year ago I became an independent Close to My Heart consultant,and thought this would be a great way to share my art. Most of my ideas are inspired by my wonderful family and friends. I'd like to dedicate this blog to them for their priceless friendships and memories.

CTMH has so mnany beautiful paper packets out for spring!  This card was made using the "Sophia"Level 2 paper packet.  I designed the flower using a small heart punch.  A scalloped punch was used to dress the card up a bit. The sentiment"Happy Spring" is from the CTMH stamp set D1415 Springtime.
