The Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

This hop I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have 24 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop.   If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.    Thank you for hopping through our Blog Hop.

Seasonal Expressions 1 is our new mini catalog that went live on January 1st.  With this catalog, our new product line called Thin Cuts was debuted.  Using your favorite die cutting machine, Thin Cuts cuts out a coordinated stamp set, also found in this catalog.  No more fussy cutting or having to pull out the Cricut for one card.  Loving the versatility of this new product!

I used our new Regatta Paper Pack, along with the My Anchor Stamp Set (C1642), and the My Anchor Thin Cuts (Z3202) to make my card.

What do you think?  I always need a "So Sorry for your loss" card, so this will be placed in my stash until the next time I need one.

The blue shadow on the light house was made with our watercolor pencils.  And before I forget, I used the Sketch Saturday Pattern # 395 and I am linking this post to that challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
