The Brae-er's Team Blog Hop - So Happy with CTMH

 If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog for a full list of participants. If you came from Julie's blog, then you are in the right place!

I am "so happy" to be participating in our team blog hop this month.  My life has been a little crazy lately and I wasn't sure that I'd have time to get a post together.  I did have a hard time trying to decide what to post about since everything about Close To My Heart makes me happy.  I love our product, I love the friendships I've made through CTMH, and I love sharing my passion with others.  I love the income, the free product, and the incentives we can earn - I truly have the best job I could possibly have.  I hope each of you reading this can say the same thing, if not, you need to get in touch with me and I will help you!!

So I finally decided to post some cards because they feature some fun techniques, and that makes me happy.  This first one was "lifted" right off the pages of Annual Inspirations and I love the two-tone stamping:
I did change the sentiment and added an acrylic leaf from my stash that is not CTMH.  Stamps used are D1604 Season of Thanks and B1449 Oodles of Doodles and D1616 Have a Happy Day.  The next card is is one of my favourite cards - I love that it looks like a room divider and our Pathfinding paper is one of my favourite collections!  I used the September Stamp of the Month "Family is Forever" and A1146 Sincere Expressions:
And last but not least is this one that features "stamping" with painters tape to create the background, so easy and a great way to create an interesting background:
The stamp set I used for this one is DD1550 Happy Autumn.  Hope you've enjoyed the cards and thanks for sharing the love of Close To My Heart by stopping in for a visit!

    We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do. To purchase any of the items featured in our blog hop, kindly contact your local consultant.

Your next stop on the hop is Darcel's blog  .....

And of course, I had to share this!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
