Cute Stamps and Help Kids Get New Smiles!

I just LOVE this new stamp set that Close to my Heart came out with to help Operation Smile give new smiles to kids with Cleft Lip & Palate.  For just $240 Operation Smile can do the surgery on these kids and give them a new life!  

At first I just thought it was a cosmetic thing, but learned if you have these issues, you can suck and eat.  So feeding a baby is very difficult.  

And Close to my Heart has this stamp set Happy Everything (D1653 $17.95) and when you purchase this stamp set, Close to my Heart will donate $3 to Operation Smile!   This stamp set is only available until August 31, 2015.  So make sure you get yours and help a child.

I used our new Blossom paper pack too!

To order this stamp set and other scrapbooking and stamping supplies, go to my website.

Close to my Heart Friendly Pets Stamp Set

Isn't this the cutest card!!  I used Close to my Heart's NEW Jackson paper pack (love it) and our Friendly Pets Stamp set (B1481 $9.95)  It also has a cat in it...and I haven't gotten to that one yet.  EEK!  lol  And notice the bow tie on him...I got it from our Stuck on you Puffies (Z3037 $4.95)

I tried one of the mustaches on him, but he didn't look right.  Maybe that would look better on the cat!  LOL

April stamp of the month

Our April Stamp of the Month is Typed Note.  Hopefully most of you know what a typewriter is!  LOL  This is a great throw back.  For those of you who don't know what a typewriter is, it is a prehistoric computer!  LOL

Get this stamp set in the month of April.  It is $17.95 or if you spend $50 you get it for just $5.  But you need to get it in April.  Once April is over...so are your chances on getting it!

Close to my Heart Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridge

I love this new cartridge!  Here are a few cards I made with Close to my Heart's Artfully Sent Cartridge.

This is the Q key.  

Love this owl!!  

Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I sponged the green and blue on the Colonial White piece on the back.  I also colored the sequins with our New Shin Han Markers.  How fun is that!

Here is another fun card.  I colored the leaves with our markers and again I colored the sequins with the markers.

I then stamped Happy Spring on the banner

I do love owls!  Here is another card.  The "hello there" is using our new washi tape!  LOVE IT!

Here is a swing card

Yes, you can make all these cards (plus more that I didn't make) using this cartridge!  If you don't have it yet, you need it!  You can go to my website to order it or you can email me and I will get it ordered for you!
