CTMH Card Class 6/18/13 and Summertime Fun

We made 5 great cards at Joyce's CTMH Class yesterday.  
For first card we used the Close to my Heart Set Home of the Brave.  It is part of a current patriotic special featuring the 3 sets pictured below.  CTMH will donate a portion of each sale to either the USO in the United States or the Canadian Hero Fund.

The remaining 4 cards featured the current stamp of the month set only available in June.

And here is the summertime card I made today  
(instead of vacuuming my downstairs, which I can just as easily do tomorrow.... or not)
