Hello Sunshine card made using The First Few Years cartridge.

Hello, friends!

 Before I get started, the tornado in Oklahoma has had a devastating effect and Close To My Heart wants to help. To aid relief efforts, Close To My Heart is making a new Autumn/Winter 2013 stamp set, A True Thank You ($2.95 retail), available immediately and will donate 100% of the profits from sales of the set from May 23 through June 30 to the American Red Cross. Below is the pic of this cute stamp set. Click below to buy.

A True Thank You - Oklahoma Tornado Relief Campaign

 Today's project is made using the new cartridge called The First Few Years. This cartridge is a scrapbook cartridge, however, it has so many great cuts you can also use it for cards. I have layouts made using this cartridge and the When I Was A Kid cartridge all week next week and at least one for the week after that. Hopefully, this news makes several of you very happy as I know there have been requests for layouts.
