Since 2008, Close To My Heart has provided support to change the lives of over 1,500 children and their families. Buy with pride. Your business with Close To My Heart makes a big difference in the life of a child.

Close To My Heart has designated February as “Share The Love” and they created an exclusive stamp set that can ONLY be purchased during the month of February! And here is a bonus! When you purchase this stamp set, $7 will go to Operation Smile! Our Stamp of the Month blog hoppers are hosting a special hop to showcase this stamp.  If you have come here from Katie Skiff's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

I had recently completed the Workshop Your Way kit and had a full sheet of Picture My Life cards, just a few scraps and some compliments left so I created cards using my leftoverw from the kit.  Today, I'll share my favorite card I created.

The piece with flowers is one of the PML cards while the other printed piece is a scrap of B&T paper I had left.  

I stamped on the little square compliment and added it to look like a piece of paper coming from the typewriter.  I clustered more compliments to add more accent to the card.

This is a fun stamp!  Come back for more samples that I created with this stamp and leftovers from Charlotte paper suite.

Remember!  This stamp is ONLY available during the month of February for $17.95.

10 Year Anniversary!

Wow!!  They say time flies when you are having fun and that is so true!  I had no idea what was in store for me when I signed up with Close To My Heart 10 years ago.  I did not know that I would gain so many friends all around the country.  Also, I never would have guessed how much I would love teaching and sharing with others.   This journey that I have been on the last ten years has been a wonderful part of my life.  Recently at a Team Builders event in Utah, we were sharing what brought us to Close To My Heart and what would keep us here.   I said that I could never see myself leaving. I plan to be in my 90's and still sharing my love for this wonderful company because of the relationships that I have built with my customers, other consultants and even the corporate staff.

Since 10 years is a big milestone for me, I wanted to share it with my customers so I am doing something special this month!  I'm giving away a FREE stamp set with your purchase!  This isn't just ANY stamp set either!   This is a Hostess Only stamp set that can not be purchased.  Here is what you can do to get your FREE stamp set!
