This afternoon I played around with the Art Philosophy cartridge and I thought I would share. I also used the B1460 Trick or Treat Sweets stamp set, Slade and Thistle cardstock along with the Slade ink pad.

This treat box was easy to put together, but surely will make someone happy - like someone in my family!

Don't forget right now you can still get a free stamp set with a $30 purchase in stamp set purchases!

If you don't want to take advantage of this great offer - share it with someone else from Montana. If you wonder, why only there? The state had a law pending that prevented many companies from letting their consultants sign anyone up in that state. So, when Close to my Heart offered this great opportunity to every one else in April, Montana residents could not take advantage of it. Now they can - so share, if you can or get that cartridge yourself!

If nothing else - its a great Christmas gift!

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is my first attempt on a blog - can you tell? I am sure you can. From what I have learned about blogs they are like an online journal and you are getting a peak into my soul ...

At this time I am trying to learn how to post my artwork with watermark and copyright and all that jazz -but I a, learning. My plan is to post my work and along with it I will explain what I used and how I made the project.

As we go along, I will also give you a peak into my life. I will share some pictures of my family, places we have been, places we have visited. So, please come back and visit often. Just know, that I am very new to this blogging thing! So, at this time - any help you can give me is highly appreciated in growing my skills in "blogging".

If you live close to me and you would like to join me in my craft place or one my crops please, check my calendar for any upcoming workshops!

A scrapbooker's quilting bee!
