Joyful Stars Close To My Heart May Blog Hop

Welcome to the May

Close to My Heart Joyful Stars Blog Hop.  

Have some fun hopping between the blogs of this group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, where we share creative projects using CTMH products.

Today I am using two of the more of the patterned papers from the CTMH’s National Scrapbooking Live Beautifully campaign paper pack.  (Check here for the wedding card I made using the gorgeous flower paper from this pack.)
You'll find the Celebrate Cricut cut on the CTMH Artistry cartridge and the monkeys are in an old Stamp of the Month Balloon Animals set.  Unfortunately, the black waxy flax and fundamental glitter stars are retired CTMH products.

My neighbor works with children who have been placed in foster care.  She asked if I could make her cards for 26 of the children who have been blessed with finding a forever home and whose adoptions will soon be finalized.  
What a fabulous reason to make cards!

Now, since this is a blog hop, you might have arrived here from Jen Benner's blog.

Your next stop is Krista Hershberger's blog.   
 The hop is circular.   So if you are just starting here, simply continue hopping until you find your way back, making the full circle.  If you get lost, the complete list of participants is on Joyce's blog.


  1. Such a cute card. I love the balloon monkeys. This card will make all those precious children smile.

  2. The monkey balloons are so cute on this card. I'm sure the child and the new family will appreciate it.

  3. Those balloon animals are PERFECT for kids cards & so special that it's for their special adoption day!! So blessed!

  4. Fun card, Debi! Those balloon monkeys look like they are having a great time. They look wonderful over the white and black background papttern. This card really makes me smile!
