So Hard to Say Goodbye Blog Hop

With a new catalog arriving soon we are highlighting some of our favorite products that will soon be retiring.  If you have come from Tammy Lubick's blog you are on the right track.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog:

This month we have 19 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's optional theme and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

One of my favorite Close to My Heart Thin Cut Dies is "Happy Birthday" and it will be retiring soon.  I used it with Prickly Pear papers and a Case This Sketch #230 card layout.

Here is a card I made with the "negative" piece:

Here are other ways I've used this Thin Cut Die:
