Hello Friends!!!

It feels like its been forever since I've blogged but I come to you bearing gifts. Here are some cards I made last night using the new Just Because card kit. While my hubby was watching the TN game, I decided to open up my kit and play. Well, let me tell you...if you are a busy bee like I've been, this is the kit for you. It is so easy and quick and look how cute the cards are! I couldn't wrap my brain around anything too difficult. I wanted to relax with something rather thoughtless yet beautiful.

This kit is available for free or discounted depending on your purchase until Sept 30. It comes with the stampset, pre-cut card pieces, ribbon, sparkles, 2 ink pads, card bases and envelopes. It makes 16 cards, 2 each of 8 designs.

I have not finished all of the designs yet, but I got off to a great start.

Visit my website for more info


And here is the finished layout that I started a few weeks ago of Missy and Lexi. I thought I would show you per the suggestions that were left for me. Adrienne said "How about a flower?" Leslie said "how about some brads?" and I said I was going to add ribbon and of course I couldn't leave out the bling! So here it is. Thanks for all your suggestions, here's what I did..................

I used chocolate brads for the flower centers and small rhinestones for the smaller flower centers. I added ribbon to my fabric flower and voila, a new revised page!!!

Hi there! Hope this finds you well - I am sure you will be busy for a while - but pray it is a blessed "busyness"! These cards are beautiful and I love the layout too! Have you noticed on the myctmh sites, if you click on the promotion, it is linked to the Aug flyer instead of the Sept one like on the main ctmh site? At first I thought it was just me....maybe they take a while to update since it is the beg of the month (?) I pray you are enjoying those 1st graders! and that God would multiply the hours in your days so that you can enjoy your family too! Blessings, Kristin
