Things Were BUZZin' at My Spring Summer Open House

Thank you to everyone that took a little time out of a VERY COLD day to stop by my open house!  I hope everyone had fun looking at the new products and browsing the new Close to My Heart Spring Summer Idea Book!

Everyone that stopped by got one of these cute little goodie bags!  (sorry for the wrinkles! I forgot to take a picture BEFORE filling!)

This goodie bag is one of our new products - the My Creations Small Paper Pouch (Z1827). This paper bag measures 3x4 and is perfect little party treats! You get 20 little bags for just $2.95. I used the new Honeycomb stamp set (C1537) to stamp on the front. Want to see what treats were in my bag?

Bit O' Honey candy, 2 brown flower buttons and an Acrylic Flower, also a coupon to redeem for FREE product!  I used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut the tag for my coupon and stamped it with the set that is included with the Buzz & Bumble WOTG kit.

Every guest had a chance to win door prizes!  Here are the door prizes and the winners: 
CTMH tumbler - Maureen Nokes
Whooo's Your Valentine stamp set - Marie Flowers
Set of Texture Tools - Rachel Boudrow
2 My Creations Banners - Janice Benson
Exclusive CTMH table cup and trash holder - Pat Davis
Congratulations ladies!

Everyone got tickets for coming, bringing a friend, participating in a scavenger hunt, purchasing clearance items and placing an order!  They also got a ticket for each Operation Smile card that was purchased.  The money for all cards sold is being donated to Operation Smile.  A total of $74 was raised yesterday at my Open House for Operation Smile!  I'm so excited about that!

Everyone got to make this card to take home:

We used the Quick Card - Bumble Bee (A1135) stamp  and Buzz & Bumble (X7164) paper accented with Hemp Twine and Chocolate Flowers.

Throughout the day, I gave away a Petite Perk stamp.  I think I gave away 4 or 5 of these little cuties!  You had to be present to win one of these!
