All Occassion Card: "Happy Thoughts"

 I am working on a big project this week.  Each year in May and November I offer a challenge to my Close To My Heart team. Anyone who sells $2000 or more that month gets a complete display board from me featuring one of the new kits in the Idea Book (November's challenge is filled in February when the Spring/Summer book goes live, and the May challenge is filled in August when the Autumn/Winter book goes live). It's a lot of work on my part, but so much fun to think of each team member who accomplished the challenge as I make each work of art.  I love my job! Come join my team so you can earn one! This time I chose the "Lucy" kit.  I will be featuring the colors and papers of this kit in each design for the display.

Lucy Level 2 Paper Pack
I love the soft, feminine feel of this paper packet. I hope to do it justice and make projects that my team members will be happy with. I'm also excited that my Play Group classes will be making three two-page 12" x 12" layouts with this kit in March.  If you are interested in participating (in person or long distance) just contact me for more information (801.360.9896,  Also, if you are interested in information about becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant and joining my team (and earning your own display!), just contact me, or head to my website here and sign up. It's easy, peasy, lemon squeasy!

Here are some more projects made using the "Lucy" kit and colors made by the talented CTMH Art Department:

Yesterday I finished my first project for the display.  The card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") you see at the top of this post was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Lisa Carroll (below). I loved the simple beauty of her card and just kind of put my own take on her gorgeous design.

Close To My Heart products used on my card (top of post):  Lucy Level 2 Paper Pack, Workshop in the Go stamp set, Sympathy Card Chatter Stamp Set, Universal Backgrounds Stamp Set, Circle Around Stamp Set (retired), Blush Stamp Pad, Black Stamp Pad, Creme Brulee Stamp Pad, Grey Flannel Stamp Pad, Grey Wool Stamp Pad, Prisma Glitter, 3D Foam Tape.

I LOVE this card, Karen! I may have to change my March Cards with Karen class to include a take on this! Did you also use the versamark to get your glitter to stick to the flower?
