I attended my first Close To My Heart event this past weekend, arriving home last night just in time to go to bed. So much fun meeting so many people with the same passion that I have!
The event was Regionals and it was held in Edmonton, AB, this year.
Close enough to drive to, so that's what we (Lee, Cole and I) did, and then we took an extra day so I could do a little shopping.
Anyways, at these events we can participate in swaps with fellow CTMH Consultants.
There was nothing organized for the swaps, as it was really just a participate if you want to kind of thing, and with the very little amount of time not taken up with business classes and such, I ended up coming home with quite a few of my swap cards.
On my card I used the pink B&T paper from La Belle Vie paper packet, and I stamped some images from Baroque Borders, the August Stamp of the Month, in Black ink for my background paper.
I wrapped a piece of our new Black Striped Grosgrain ribbon across the center of the card, tucking the ends in behind the background paper, before gluing it onto my card base.
The flower image I used is from an upcoming Stamp of the Month for January, called Happy Valentine's. I decided to leave the flower image blank. I figure the recipient can always colour it in if they wish, although I honestly like the way it looks either way.
I coloured one card, that I kept for myself, with our new Alcohol Markers and this is what it looks like:
I hope those of you who received my cards enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them for you!
I will be posting more from the CTMH Regionals event over the next while.
Happy creating! :)
