February Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars February Blog Hop! If you've come here from Helen's blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

February 10 is my mom's birthday. This is the card I made for her using the Heartstrings Paper Packet and Compliments. Happy Birthday, from the stamp set Happy To Be Friends, is stamped in black on a journal spot from the My Crush in the Pink Assortment. Then every card needs a little bling and the Junebug Puffy Stickers worked well with this color palette. 

Many of the items I used are from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book. These items are only available until March 31. So contact your Close To My Heart consultant to grab them and stock up before they are gone forever.

Thank you for stopping or should I say hopping. Your next stop is Andrea's blogJust in case you get lost or experience a technical difficulty, you might want to keep Joyce's blog open in a separate tab, as she has a full list of participants.

Why I have been MIA with crafting projects

It's been quite awhile since I posted anything crafty, and that's because it has been a long time since I made anything crafty! Since Christmas break I've been on a reading kick. I even took a personal day in January for the release of a long awaited book. Looking at my Kindle content my total books read for 2015 is 19 not including a few novellas.
