Happy Saturday everyone... 
I'm so happy you've stopped by on your way through the

Thanks for joining us in our Close To My Heart Blog Hop. We are a short hop with only 10 stops including this one, so be sure to hop over to all my talented friends' blogs, follow them (and be sure to follow me using BLOGLOVIN - button at the top of my blog in the right column), leave them some comment love, and keep an eye out for BLOG CANDY!

Here are a few items I made for the hop.

I find I always need cards to send out to friends for no 
particular reason. Both of the card below have the same sentiment.

This card is Print and Cute. I added Glossy Accents to the birds body,
hearts and the middle of the flowers.

Card is a Print and Cut from the Silhoutte
Stamp is from CTMH # D1452 Find Your Style
White Card Stock
Stazon Ink
Glossy Accents

For my next card it too is a Print and Cut that I welded together to make a Shaped Card.

For my last project I wanted a opened container that I could sit 
on my desk for putting my paper clips in.

I ran a piece of white card stock through the Creatopia, then adhered a piece of pattern paper from CTMH so the paper would be strong enough for the box.
