One Year With Close To My Heart

Jan 1st of 2009, I got on my computer and filled out the application to become a consultant with Close To My Heart. I really thought I would do it as a hobbyist, get a great discount on my products and maybe take an order or two from my family. Well as soon as I got my confirmation that I had been approved in less than an hour, I was on the website soaking up everything they had to teach me. Now I'm coming up on one year later and look at everything I've been able to accomplish with this awesome company: Straight To the Top Level One, Straight To The Top Level Two, CTMH Bachelors Degree ,CTMH Masters Degree, CTMH PhD ,Annual Rising Star Award ,Top Nineth Recruiter, Director, Carribean Cruise Earner, Top Internet Sales (Regionals MN) ,Top Recruiter (Regionals MN) ,Top Three Team Sales ( Regionals MN) . All of these accomplishments are great but more important than any of them are the wonderful friendships I've formed with my customers and my Close To My Consultant friends. I also have truly been able to contribute extra money to my household in an economy that is really hard right now. How amazing to work for a company that really does take care of their consultants, to earn money for something I love doing, to meet wonderful people that have the same interest and to have a creative outlet, which is something I really need for my sanity. LOL If you are looking for something to help add to your life friends income great products discounted learning tools creative inspiration think about joining my team Pinkcloudscrappers and just see where you might be in a year.

Merry Mice Christmas

I generally don't like most of my artwork when I first finish it. It takes a couple days to grow on me. But I have to say, I love the final results of this cutie. The sketch that I did was from Friday Sketchers..have to say fun layout. I also used blue, green and brown colors plus the cute Greeting Farms image for their Farm Fresh Friday Challenge. Lastly the little flower charm I colored with copics ( yes you can color on metal with them) looks like a little dangle of candy waiting to be eaten by little mice. This was for the Simon Say Challenge, use a charm. The paper that I used is one of Close To My Heart's all time top sellers "Emporium". It's such a beautiful line. The Emporium is still available so be sure to contact me to stock up on some.

Angels We Have Heard On High

This is another one of Michelle Perkett's beautiful digi images that I colored with copics. I love the angel looking up into the heavens, raising a prayer and if singing to our Lord, how beautiful. The layout is from a sketch challenge fro Michelle Perkett Studios. I also used my cuddlebug folder to emboss the frame and cut it out after I embossed. The bling was added by coloring with my Gelly Roll/Sakura glitter pen (which I love) and also used my Clear Sparkles from Close To My Heart. So with all the bling and the embossing, I qualified to put this in the Cuddlebug Challenge. Here is a listing of all the other challenges that this card meets.
