Missing blogger . . . found!

Hi All,
My apologies for not keeping my blog up-to-date. I promise to be more consistent!  I just returned from four fun-filled days at Disneyland with my Close to My Heart friends.  The Annual Inspirations (idea book) was revealed . . . you'll get a chance to see that on August 1st!  Wowzers! Are there some beautiful new papers coming out, some terrific markers, and a slew of new stamps!  You will not be diappointed . . . oh, and did I mention, another Cricut cartridge? Yes in deedy! This cartridge is designed for cardmaking --- and can be  used in scrapbooking too!  It will not let you down!  Just like our other three cartridges, it has so many images on it!!! I cannot wait for my cartridge to arrive.

So, while we are waiting, here are some fun pictures for you to look at . . . some new products, and well, just the crazy fun we have at convention!

Thanks for being patient!
