Hope for Japan

Hope for Japan..

We've all been reeling from the images of the tragedy and devastation in Japan. If your looking
for an easy, real, practical way to help relief efforts than I invite you to give me a call, email me or visit my website to get a special My Acrylix stamp set that our Founder and Ceo Jeanette Lynton has designed.

Typically, our A-sized sets sell for $7.95/$8.95can, but the "Hope for Japan" set will be available though April 30, 2011 for just $5.00--and Close to my Heart will donate 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross to benefit relief efforts in Japan.
If we all do a little, together we can do a lot.
Lets show our support and together, provide real HOPE for Japan.

My first card for the DT is this cute little dragon from the Fantasy collection

Sophia WOTG kit

So this first picture is not a Sophia layout, it is Hunter who found out for the first time Sunday that the birdbath had water in it, he had a ball playing in it, by the time he was done there was no water in the birdbath, he was wearing it all. I will be scrapbooking these pictures in a few days.

These next pictures are from the Sophia WOTG kit that we are using at the April card workshop, I used the papers to do 8x8 pages for a small scrapbook that someone wants to give as a present. I hope you like them, they are layouts from the Magic book, but resized smaller. I still have 2 more pgs that I don't have photos of.

All products are Close to my Heart unless noted:
G1019 Sophia WOTG kit
Z2128 Hollyhock ink
Z2123 Goldrush ink

Happy Camper C1457

So I had my stitchs removed on Thursday and did the Lucky workshop on Friday nite, it was alot of fun, my hand was still sore, but that was okay. Today was the first time that I had some time to sit down to stamp and color, so I pulled out the new C1457 Happy Camper My Acylix stamp and got to work. I stamped a bunch of these guys on Xpress It paper and after I colored them with Copic markers, I cut them out. The grass in background was done with copic markers. I adheared everything to our new Kraft CS, was excited when I saw that we now carry Kraft Cs, I used 3-D foam tape on the bear. I hope you like it. It looks much brighter in person, this is the first time I have used my scanner on the new printer.
