Close To My Heart

Good Morning everyone! I am posting this without my usual morning cup of coffee so I hope that it will all make sense! Got to get this posted then take a shower then it's off to the free movie! This is the last week of free movies which is another sign that summer is coming to a close. But tomorrow I leave for convention!! I will set my computer to pre-post so that hopefully you will still be able to see cards while I am gone. I will also post my convention swaps while I am gone.

Today's card and the cards that will be posted the next three days are different than my usual ones. Now, I don't want anyway to get injured so you may want to sit down or hang on to something... But these cards are done with stamps other than Stampin' Up! stamps!!! GASP! When I started this blogging thing, I knew that I wanted to be able to post other kinds of projects and projects using products other than Stampin' Up!. And, about a month ago I went to a Close To My Heart party and ordered a set of their acrylic stamps, some blocks and paper. I played with them this past weekend and it was a blast! I hope that you like what I came up with as much as I do! I felt so free!!! I am glad that I was able to break away. There are many wonderful stamp companies out there who make some really great products as well.

Anyway, about the card... I actually copied it from a card from the recent Cards Magazine. I used different stamps and I added another color but other than that it is pretty close! I just love the new Tangerine Tango! It is the deep orangey-rusty color that I have been looking for! Have a great day! I will be "live" again next Tuesday!!
