I've been slightly out-of-commission this past month, with a broken upper humerous (no it wasn't exactly funny on my part) !  


Exciting pic of me with my brace! 

 Needless to say, I'm just beginning to be able to fully type with both hands... and use my left arm, so haven't done a lot of cardmaking or scrapbooking!    Close to My Heart has some GREAT  specials coming up... so be sure to check out  my website @  http://Helping U Celebrate.CTMH.com for some super ideas !  AND   if you're interested in a major discount on all of your supplies, JOIN CTMH this month, and receive a FREE CTMH CRICUT Collection of your choice !
Looking forward to REAL SPRING WEATHER!!
