Here we go!

As I was planning on what I wanted to create today, I decided to stick with a very simple set of cards.  :)  

I LOVE Close To My Heart's amazing specials - and wanted you to see how BEAUTIFUL & EASY it was to purchase this cardmaking kit & maybe add a few things you have in your craft room for the look you like.  

Take a look....     

The card on the left, was created with things that are included in the kit. 
The middle card, I added some watercolor paints to the circle prior to stamping the image.
The right card - I pulled out my ShinHan alcohol markers to add some color, I added a 2" circle mat of Lagoon cardstock & then used 3D foam tape to "pop" up the circle. 

What a fun set, of ADORABLE little cards!!! 

You'll ALSO want to keep in mind...that it takes just ONE more stamp to create a matching envelope! :) 
TIP: if you choose to color the flowers on the envelope with alcohol markers, cut a 3x3 "scrap" piece of paper to tuck inside so that the ink doesn't run through to the back of your envelope! :)  I was so thankful when I learned that tip!

I wasn't sure I wanted to include this next card...I'm not sure I like the design of  it :) ...BUT...

I DO like the fact that CTMH carries this WREATH stamp set that fits perfectly around the included circles!! :) I'd LOVE to see how you use this wreath stamp set with this cardmaking kit. :)  

ANOTHER reason I wanted to include this card....
Did you know that when you purchase this month's "Create Kindness" Cardmaking Kit AND this "Wreath" stamp set - your total purchase qualifies you to get hte EXCLUSIVE Stmap of the Month "Blessed Beyond  MEasure" for ONLY $5?!?!

 Wahoo!!!  Deals - deals!!!  I love to find a GREAT deal! :)

With the 8 stamps that are included in this kit (yes - EIGHT!!) ....you can use the 4 larger sayings on the inside of your card, and the other 4 floral images & word on the outside of the card...
...or use both, like I did here :) 

I hope you enjoyed these cards , and now it's time to "Hop" on over to Cat's  Blog to see her amazing work!
