Blog Hop: Share A Smile

This month Close to My Heart is hard at work increasing awareness and raising funds for Operation Smile.  In support of this effort, they have created a special set of die cuts to go with our Punny Pals stamp set and an easy to make card kit!  Welcome to the blog hop featuring these products!

If you have arrived here from Alyson's Blog, you are on track to continue a large circle of blogs featuring artwork creating using the products on special this month.  I have some artwork to share with you here and then you will move on to Gina's Blog

This set of little animal characters and their punny sayings are great for a variety of different greetings. 

Here I created a birthday card for my sister who is a lover of all things green and especially frogs. 

For this card I tried the partial die cut technique that was recently featured on the Make it from Your Heart blog.  With the detailed instructions, this was an easy technique to do.  

And then I couldn't ignore this puppy!  I added him to a tag from the stamp set "The Thought That Counts" (C1692) which has some fun, snarky messages for holiday gifts.  His little guys goes perfectly.   

With every sale of the Punny Pals stamp set, $7 goes to Operation Smile.  It takes $240 for a surgery that can change the life potential of one child.  You can also donate by "rounding up" on your Close to My Heart orders and during October, Close to My Heart is matching the donations up to $10,000.

AND, when you participate in the Share a Smile promotion by purchasing any of these special items or rounding up your order, you will automatically qualify for a chance to win a not-yet-released stamp set from our upcoming 2018 Seasonal Expressions 1 idea book!  Close to My Heart will be choosing winners throughout the month of October, so any time you place an order, you can be a winner! 

 The following are the thin cut set and the card set that compliment the Punny Pal stamp set.

If you would like to support Operation Smile AND have a super cute stamp set with a fast, simple and easy card kit, visit your consultants website!  If you do not have a CTMH consultant, I would be happy to help you.  Visit my website here for all the details about the special or contact me personally.
