Freshly Made Sketches 133

Thought I would share my creation using the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Blog.  I was pretty tickled with the way it turned out!  Although I missed the actual challenge, I still wanted to share!!

Again, I am using the "Free To Be Me" papers from Close to my Heart's National Scrapbooking Month special.  You too can get your hands on this BRIGHT AND CHEERY paper pack starting May 1st through May 31st!!!

I kept this simple, yet sweet as I tend to do MOST of my cards!  LOL  I used Lagoon and Smoothie Baker's Twine from the Paradise Baker's Twine assortment.  LOVE how it adds just a bit of fiber, without taking away from the arrows on the background paper!

Thanks SO SO much for stopping by!!

I hope that this inspires you to play along with the weekly sketch challenges over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I believe a new one is released tomorrow!  Stay tuned for that sketch too!

Happy scrapping and stamping!

Mojo Monday 343 with Sneak Peak of May's special!!

Recently, I have lost my crafting Mojo.  But if I am going to be honest here, I had lost my Mojo in all other areas of life as well.  This winter was a DOOSY on my spirit.  BUT I am FIGHTING to get it back and I think I am WINNING!!  LOL

You know how I LOVE to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenges.  SO I am not only posting THIS weeks sketch, but LAST weeks sketch as well!!

 How do you feel about "signs" in your life?  I believe that everything happens for a reason and that there are signs along the way that tell me things are going to be ok.  As I am sitting here, typing this out, I realized something.  The name of this SUPER CUTE paper pack that will be making its debut in May is called "Free To Be Me".  How fitting that is for where I am at in my life right now!!  No wonder I am falling in love with the BRIGHT AND CHEERY colors and patterns from this pack!!

Mojo Monday 343

May is National Scrapbooking Month, as most of us scrapbookers/stampers know and Close to my Heart ALWAYS has a GREAT special to go along with the celebration.  This year is NO exception!!  Starting May 1st -May 31st you will be able to purchase this pack for just $5 with a $50 purchase.  Check out my website www.jenbennett.ctmh.com for complete details on what comes in the paper pack and how you can purchase it starting May 1st!

ALSO available starting May 1st is the PERFECT stamp for ALL card occasions!  It is the May SOTM called You've Got a Friend.  The COOLEST part of it all is that when you purchase the "Free to be Me" paper pack, with the qualifying $50 purchase, you also get the SOTM for $5!!  I think it is a deal you CANNOT pass up!!

Mojo Monday 342

This card uses one of CTMH's mini stamps called "Perfect Polka-Dot Day".  I cannot tell you how much I LOVE these little stamps.  For just $2.95 each, they go PERFECTLY with most sized cards and they are SO STINKING CUTE!!  I colored this in with a retired Ruby alcohol marker.  The feathers were fussy cut from the feather paper in the "Free to be Me" paper pack.  They were pretty simple to cut out, otherwise I would not have taken the time to do it!   LOL

Thanks SO much for stopping by today!!  

I hope this has inspired you to treat yourself in May to this AWESOME deal that CTMH has for us!!  

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!!
