Well...the big move from Alaska to South Carolina is now complete. Whew! I wasn't sure if my craft area and photo light box would be done in time for this blog hop, so I completed this card before the movers in Alaska boxed up my craft area. I have to say it's one of my favorite cards of the year.
The Fern vines in background are from Lifetime of Happiness and the long retired, wood-mounted Balloon String stamp. The sequins accents are from a mix of Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and anywhere else offering a 40% discount. :)
You might be wondering what's with all the retired CTMH product. Remember last month's Blog Hops with Heart theme? It was "Use It or Lose It." I created both my cards at the same time, which happened to be just before the movers showed up. I was trying to be ruthless about purging things, but in reality, I just find reasons why I bought the stamps and supplies I have so I can feel okay about moving them from place to place.
If you are a Blog Hops with Heart veteran, you know that we always have a circle. You probably came from Jayma's blog and now will hop on over to Amie's blog. Amie has a complete list of everyone participating in the hop, in case you need it. These ladies really know how to put on a show, so don't miss a single entry.
You probably won't see me for a few more weeks as I finish up two more writing deadlines. Then I'm going to spend some quality time in my craft area before we pack everything up and move again in a few more months. Ah, army life!
If you'd like to win a copy of The Promise Bride (releasing in about a month), here's a link to Goodreads. The giveaway ends July 25, 2017, so you might want to head there now and then finish the blog hop.
Until next time,
