New Product Blog Hop

Thank you for stopping by my blog to see what I have created with just a few of the BRAND NEW products that Close To My Heart has to offer. If you have come from Maria's blog then you are on the right track for this Blog Hop!

There are so many great new things in the Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book and I am definitely having a great time creating and playing with all these new items. But I wanted to post my most recent card that I made using my favorite paper pack in the new Idea Book.

I used the Flirty Paper Pack with the Birthday stamp set from the NEW Artiste Cricut Collection to create this card. I love how all the prints from this paper go so well together! This card was created using Pattern #23 in the NEW Make It From Your Heart Volume 1. This book makes it so easy to complete cards and layouts quickly.

Thanks again for stopping by to check out my latest creation and I hope you will continue on this Blog Hop to check out the rest of the artwork created by many other consultants. Your next stop on this Blog Hop is Traci's blog. Have fun!

Gotta love baby goats

During Spring Break my Mother-In-Law took the girls to see a friend of hers who happens to have baby goats.  Baby Goats!!!! Isn't that the best thing in the entire world? Callie and Tatum had such a great time playing, feeding and holding the baby goats. They have been asking everyday since if we could get goats. Baby Goats!!!! If only we had the space for goats. This adventure will be fresh in the girls mind for a long time to come, I can guarantee that. The perfect Spring Break activity!
