Here we go!

Close To My Heart has done it again!!
This new mini Book is FILLED with BEAUTIFUL papers, embellishments & products!! My favorite paper pack in this NEW book, is "Spruced Up"..and so that's the paper collection that I created with today! 

Here are the two cards I created....

Now, let's take a look at those BEAUTIFUL pattern designs in the "Spruced Up" paper collection!  

The deep, rich tones are perfect for winter...or can be used for any occasion for that matter. :) 

The stamp set that I used for this card, is an EXCLUSIVE one, that comes from our Spruced Up Cardmaking kit!  I love to use those stamp sets in a variety of ways.  

  Did you happen to NOTICE???  
Do you see that GORGEOUS, stitched, scallop circle behind the flowers??

WE have NEW "Thin Cuts" (metal dies) and THIS item is one of my favorite new tools in this Jan/Feb mini book!!  
Best of all, the PRICE is magnificent!! Only $9.95 US!!! 

 I took a photo of the 3 new Thin Cuts we carry in this mini book...which one is your favorite?? (I really, REALLY like the stitched brackets too!) 

I was PLEASANTLY surprised & excited when I realized that our "retired" Bashful Shimmer Brush was the perfect shade of PINK to color in the flowers!!  

After I stamped my flowers with Intense Black ink pad, I colored in the flowers with the Shimmer Brush, and also used the Dull Green Tri-Blend Spectrum Noir alcohol marker to color in the green leaves. 

Here is a picture of the stamp set...remember, this stamp set can only be found in the Spruced Up Cardmaking Kit. 

I hope you enjoyed this card, and were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Lauren's Blog to see her beautiful creation!
