As if paper crafting isn't enough- I have discovered the fabulous pasttime of knitting! My husband is so excited(haha). He simply asks when I'm going to finish our childrens scrapbook and I say finish? If I have my camera in hand and all the wonderful Close To My Heart goodies how can I ever really finish? He just doesn't seem to understand(sigh). But, I think once he is snuggled under a nice,warm knitted blanket he won't mind. That will be sometime in the distant future since it is 85 degrees out now! Gives me time to practice!

I just love the new Bella paper pack! I did up this cute little card for a Close To My Heart unit swap and it is perfect for this time of the year! I adapted a card sketch from the Originals Card Confidance Program(9032) This book is great if you have a mental block when it comes to creating a card. I used the level 2 paper pack Bella(X7114B) The sweet baby in the pot is stamped using Flower Child(D1248)and colored with watercolor pencils(3505) and then I used a blending pen(3174)to softed the colors. I also used the stamp set Treasures of the heart(C1271) on the front and inside. The flower is from the Just Blooms Big Pinks(Z1033) and a pewter bitty brad(Z199)to attach it.
