Fun Friends

A few years ago my daughter Robin was a Close to My Heart consultant. At that time, I thought I would give scrapbooking a try but you know what they say about good intentions. I didn't start scrapping until a year ago. Anyway, I did come away from the good intentions with two Close to My Heart Idea Books. And I still have them! I sat down with them this week and went through each one page by page. Wow...they are packed full of wonderful ideas for making cards. You should see all the sticky notes protruding from the books to mark pages that have projects that appealed to me. That being said, this is a card that I made which is taken from a project in the 2003-2004 Idea Book.

The stamp, which I colored with Copics, is from the Close to My Heart Fun Friends Set. The paper is from my scrap stash (scraps are so great to use for cards). I did the sentiment on the computer and added brads and rick rack.

I got really hyped up about the Idea Books so yesterday checked out eBay for Close to My Heart products. I bought the Spring 2008 Idea Book and the Summer 2008 Idea Book. Can't wait to get them and see what wonderful projects they have to inspire me. I just love buying on eBay especially when I get a really good deal which I did on these Idea Books.

Luck, love and laughter,

Fab card Judy... looks like you are intending to be really busy creating when you get your new idea book :) It's great when you find something like that that inspires you isn't it :)
