More heartfelt cards...

Here are a few more cards that we received over the past month. I am in awe at the creativity and huge hearts that my CTMH sisters have! Thank you so much to everyone! (Believe it or not, I still have more cards to share! Stay tuned...)

Two beautiful cards from Alyson Mayo.
I love the fancy Cricut cuts, Thinlits, and embossing that Alyson used on her cards.

Fun card from Amy Keeler.
Amy used one of my favorite papers (that will be retiring on Sunday) called Dreamin’ Big

Sweet card from Carol Loftus.
These sweet little envelopes are so cute! I love the tiny glitter hearts that Carol added too! 

Adorable card from Mary Gunn.
Isn’t the little giraffe in the tea cup “FUNN?” 

Thank you my sweet friends for your love and encouragement! xoxo

Floral Encouragment Card

As I continue to share some of the beautiful handmade cards that were sent to us over the past few weeks, I knew that I just had to share this one with you. This is one of the cards that my sweet friend Amy McGrew sent to us. I fell in love with the color scheme she used along with the encouraging sentiment on the front. She used the Here for You stamp set which is one of my favorites.

Thank you so much Amy for thinking of us and for your thoughtful and caring words. Most of all, thank you for your friendship! Love you tons! xoxo

Watercolor Botanical Card

Here is another beautiful card that we received while my daughter was in the hospital. (You can read more about it here.) One of my sweet team members created this beautiful watercolor card for us. She used CTMH’s watercolor paints on the background and stamped the botanical outlined images from the Good Thymes! stamp set on top in black ink.

The “with love” sentiment, also from the Good Thymes! stamp set, was embossed with white embossing powder on the black cardstock banner shape, and then stapled to the card with the CTMH Mini Stapler. Don’t you just love this card? It makes me happy just looking at it! Thank you so much Chris for taking the time to make and send us such a beautiful piece of art and for the sweet words of encouragement inside. xoxo

Floral Get Well Card

As promised, I am honored to share some of the beautiful cards that were sent to my daughter while she was in the hospital. (You can read more about it on this post.)

This beautiful card was created and sent by my super creative CTMH BFF Christine Adams. She used the Flower Market Cricut cartridge to make the sweet 3-D flowers. It's hard to see, but she also used the Gold Shimmer Brush on the flower centers. Thank you Christine for taking the time to make such a wonderful card for my daughter and for the sweet message of encouragement inside!! xoxo

Where has Lisa been?

Hi everyone! I am so sorry that I have been MIA the past few weeks. My daughter was admitted to the hospital on March 27th and was just discharged last night. She is doing much better, but it was definitely a long two weeks for all of us. Because I needed to stay with her in the hospital, I was not able to update my blog, send out my monthly newsletter, respond to emails in a timely manner, and sadly, I was not able to design a project for our April Club. So, there will be no Club project this month. I apologize for not being as available as usual, but now that we are back at home, I will be trying to catch up with my CTMH duties as quickly as possible. 

One thing I am humbled to share is that I have received an incredible amount of love and support not only from my family and friends, but from the CTMH Home Office and sooooo many of my CTMH sisters and customers! We have been overwhelmed by the amount of encouragement and love we have received from my “CTMH family.” My daughter and I have received so many beautiful handmade cards filled with words of encouragement. (I will share some of them with you here on my blog this week.) It was a wonderful reminder of why I do what I do. Being a CTMH Consultant not only allows me to help people document their memories in scrapbooks, it also allows me to help people create beautiful artwork and cards that encourage and bless others and TRULY brighten their day. I am humbled to have been on the receiving end of those blessings over the past two weeks. 

I will be sharing CTMH’s great April promotions shortly and will be sending out my April newsletter soon. Thank you so much for your patience and thank you for the love and prayers that many of you have sent our way! My family and I are so grateful! xoxo

I will leave you with this beautiful card that I recently received from my talented friend and CTMH family member, Sheri Rottler. She used my favorite paper collection (which will be retiring at the end of the month) called Hello Lovely

The sweet sentiment she used is from the Here for You Card Kit. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photo, but she also used the Gold Shimmer Brush on the flowers and around the sentiment to add a subtle sparkle. Thank you Sheri for the beautiful card and the note of encouragement inside!
