Close to my Heart has just given us a fantastic opportunity.....they are giving a trip for two to Australia to one lucky person who attends Convention.  I am going to receive my 20th year award this year and I want to say:

1. I couldn’t do this without YOU….and I am so blessed & amazed once again of your continued support!!  I am so THANKFUL for MANY of you that I now call friends.  We most likely wouldn’t have met if I hadn’t been a part of CTMH…what a Blessing!!!
I want to continue to be here for YOU & help you in the BEST way I know how. J  THANK YOU!!

Oh what FUN…I adore my CTMH Family, and when they offer a challenge…I like to give it my best!!!

So – what are they offering to us as Consultants???

I have been BLESSED beyond measure with the trips I have EARNED through CTMH….but to WIN a trip to a place we’ve never been?  Oh it’s FUN to dream AND I will give it my best as I try to get my name entered as many times as I can into this drawing!!

****So – how do your purchases help?? 
By attending Convention this year – my name is already in the drawing…HOWEVER…

I used Blossom paper from Seasonal Expressions book.

This could be a great happy birthday card or valentine's day card.

This was a card that everyone could make when they are extra time on Sat at our Spring Fling. 
Add caption
The paper is called Taste of Summer and is only available the month of May. You can get this, which has 6 different patterns and 2 of each pattern.  One side of the paper has fruit and the other side had a color tone on tone.  The zip strips are also fun, see the row of strawberries.
