Always Remember Somebody Loves You

Howdy y'all!

I know it's been almost forever since I've posted. But I promise to change that.

Today I'm coming to y'all to share this super cute card that I made for the Mama Elephant Guest Designer call.
For some reason, this adorable stamp totally reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. Have y'all seen Christopher Robin? I haven't had a chance to see it yet. But, I definitely plan too. 

And because this stamp set reminded me of that silly ol' bear. I chose to color him that way. Also, I chose to go with primary colors, as you can see in the banners. 

Now, I know y'all want to what supplies I used to make this fun card. And where exactly, you can find them too. That's why the links can be found when you click on the information.

Close to My Heart Virtual Idea Book


Are y'all as excited about the weekend as I am?

I just love knowing that the weekend is HERE. Even though I work from home and go to school online, I love the feeling of Friday.

Part of it is because I know my DH will have the next two days off. The other part is knowing that my class assignments are ALL due on Saturday. And the other part is because I know that when Sunday rolls around I will get to see the sweet children in my CTR4 class at Church.

I don't think I've shared this before, but did you know that my CTMH shop has an virtual Idea Book you can view?

It does. And let me just say that it's almost as good as holding the real Idea Book. You can view my virtual Idea Book HERE.

And on the page where you view my virtual Idea Book, you can also find the recipes for how to make some of the amazing projects contained in the Idea Book.

So if your online and would like to view my virtual Idea Book. You can view it HERE.

Happy Crafting,

Death by Chocolate


I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. And actually the next couple of posts may or may not be new craft projects.

My life is really crazy right now. And my emotions are ALL over the place.

Since the beginning of the year, I was given a calling as a Sunday School Teacher for the 4 year olds in my Ward. Then I was given a Visiting Teaching route, I haven't had one of those in a couple of years and the sisters on my route are really knowledgeable, so I'm kind of intimidated by them.

Then in my regular life, I've got school, which is going well. I made it as a Finalist in Sizzix's Who Are You? contest. And, I'm a housewife and mom to our three dogs, which means I'm definitely not bored.

And then, there's my family life, not my home life with my DH, but the family I was born into. My step-brother, which some people seem to be confused about. If this is something that confuses you, basically, he's my brother. He's been diagnosed with Leukemia (Stage 4) and throat cancer. He's not going to undergo any treatments, (his decision) and had has 2 months left.

With all this craziness my blog has been lacking in content. So I will attempt to fix that when I am able to.

For today's posting I'm going to share a card that I made for HYCCT (Hope You Can Cling To), which is something that an online crafting community I belong to hosts every October, to help raise awareness and donate cards to the Cancer patients at MD Andersen in Houston, TX.

Stamps: CTMH A Chocolate AffairPaper: SU! Festival of Prints, CTMH Colonial WhitePaper Size: A2Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, CTMH ChocolateAccessories: SU! Ticket Corner Small, CM Square ShapeMaker

Personally, if I had to choose the way I would die, it would have to be by chocolate. ;)

If you would like to purchase any of the items you see here. Most of them can be purchased at my CTMH shop.

Happy Crafting,

Guess who's a finalist?


Sorry I haven't been able to craft and blog for a while.

Life is crazy around here. I got some new Church callings. Then school started back up. Then my little brother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Leukemia and throat cancer.

I promise when I get a chance to share some more of my personal crafty goodness/inspiration.

But, on the bright side. I am a finalist number 5 in Sizzix's Who Are You? Contest.

I would sure appreciate y'all's help in voting. And if I win, I promise to share a video of what comes in the package, my trip to the Sizzix studio, if I can, the tour of the Sizzix studio, and if I'm allowed a little of the training I get if I win the Grand Prize.

So big things could be coming to the blog if I win. Please visit to vote for number 5.

Happy Crafting,
