CTMH Rockstars! Get Your Cards Soon!

Let me introduce you to these two little CTMH Rockstars,  
Sticky Boy and Sticky Girl!  Aren't they the cutest?

Who are they and how did they come to be? The founder of Close To My Heart, Jeanette Lynton, drew the boy image for her husband, David 25+ years ago and named the him "What's Up"? He was a cute and curious little rubber stamp on a wooden block that people were a little puzzled by, but loved him for his quirkiness! Sticky Boy, in the wonderful Close to My Heart Acrylix stamp version, came to life 12 years ago and was introduced at our annual convention in a very fun video. You can view that short video by scrolling down to find it on the right side. In June of this year, Sticky Boy found a girlfriend named Sticky Girl and they've been very happy ever since!

Ok, back to reality people! As the deadline for earning the CTMH Incentive trip to beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico approaches soon, like TOMORROW, I am offering these 3 special cards for a very limited time!

Spread Some Love

This True Love stamp set is so adorable and very special!  
With the sale of each stamp set, Close to My Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile, a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates in children. 

Spread some love with your purchase of this sweet stamp set (here) and help a child smile.

Here are 5 cards I made with the True Love set and the Enchantment Fundamentals papers. 
I wish you could see the hint of sparkle from my new favorite tool, the Shimmer Brush!  So easy to use and it makes such a soft subtle shimmer effect.  Perfect!

Additional Supplies used:
ShinHan Touch Twin Markers, Black Shimmer Trim, Gold Sequins, 
Journaling Pen
Retired - Treasured Puffies
