Safari Tag Card

Safari Tag Card

Once a month my mom gathers with a group of ladies to create cards.  This is in addition to the ones she creates for the students to make in my classes.  Since it is summer break, I have been able to join in on the activity.  Here is a safari themed tag card we made.



Be sure to check out the list of retired Close To My Heart products on my blog and order any items you have been thinking about soon, as they are "while supplies last".  www.kimferguson.ctmh.com

Enjoy!

2013 Spring/Summer catalog retired items list

Hello stampers and scrapbookers,

I have attached a copy of the 2013 spring/summer catalog retired items list.  Remember these are "while supplies last", so get your orders in quick for what you have been dreaming about in the current catalog.

You know what this means...  A new catalog soon!

I am in the beginning planning stage for a 1 year anniversary/catalog unveiling get-together for the first part of August.  My official anniversary date is August 1st, so I want to be as close to that date as possible.  More details soon...

If you would like to place an order, be sure to go to my website www.kimferguson.ctmh.com.

Hope you are enjoying summer's arrival today!
