Healing, lots of healing......CTMH Special.

Yes, it has been quite some time since I have been around.
Unfortunelty I have just had my 3rd knee surgery in under a year. 
Making a long story short, I have 6 weeks at home, can't drive, hopefully
I can get back into my blogging and possibly "touch" a stamp??

Well, anyhow, I at least wanted to get the latest offer out to you all from Close To My Heart:

For details, please feel free to email me. 
Also, I would like to share my NEW CTMH Website with you.
You can see up to date specials, videos, artwork and you can even place an order.

Guess what I got yesterday!! My new Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from CTMH!!

You know you are going to be excited with the unveiling of each Idea Book, but can I tell you I don't know HOW they will top this one.

I got my NEW Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge just released from Close To My Heart. And can I tell you it is done CTMH style. Highest quality down to the box. The box is all plastic, no cardboard, all plastic.

Here is what you get in the bundle. 
I know you can't see well from the photo, but each stamp image that lines up with a cricut cartridge, gives you a measurement to cut on your machine for a perfect match. Cut the image, stamp, DONE!!
I can NOT wait to play with this baby. Of coarse I want every other stamp set in the idea book that matches up with the cartridge. Oh boy, this may be my highest sales year yet!!
Here is a little peak at the back of the box. 
Beautiful, just beautiful.
Yes, I have an addiction, and it just got worse. Isn't the first part of getting better admitting it, HA!!
Thanks Close To My Heart, you have yet done it again.

I love fairies and pixie dust and everything mystical!

Here is what I choose for my challenge: Enchanted Meeting

Isn't she darling especially her new little friend!!

I used a new cuttlebug embossing folder, well, for me it is new. 
It has butterfly type patterns and thought that went perfectly with her wings. 
All paper is Close To My Heart Bella!
I used OLD templates also from Close To My Heart to surround the image. 
Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.

Let's Layer!! Magical Monday!!

I almost did not make this weeks challenge!!
I am still a bit slow and yesterday was my first day back at work!!
Torture to sit at that desk all day. My knee swelled to 3 times its size. Not very happy.
Hopefully my therapist will help me with this as I feel like I set myself back a good 2 weeks in my therapy.

Okay, sorry, enough saga and drama, on to this week's Magical Monday Challenge.
Layers, layers and more layers.
How many can you add??
I decided to paper piece my Digi Stamp for the layer effect.

I used Golf Outing Cupcake for my card
and used some Masculine paper from Close To My Heart.
I didn't go all crazy with embellishments as I wanted all my
paper piecing to stand out.

Remember, if you use a Paper Cupcakes Image, your entry is put in times 2. You aren't required to use their image, but it is always a bonus .......
Share your link at the challenge blog:
Good Luck!
