CTMH Austalasian Blog Hop- Last Chance Annual Inspirations

Hello and welcome aboard our Last Chance Annual Inspirations Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Vandra then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features some of Close To My Heart’s retiring product- we only have until the end of August before new goodies are released and so CTMH have to make room somehow!

I started off by watercoloring a piece of Watercolour Paper to create a scenery background.

I then stamped two trees from the retiring Always Grateful stamp set, and added a sentiment from a retiring Hostess Rewards stamp set, Birthday Funnies.

I framed the card with some strips of Topiary cardstock, and added some of the retiring Urban paper behind it to finish off my card.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Georgia Creates.


  1. What a great idea for the Over the Hill sentiment. Lovely card.

  2. Nice effect with the painted background.

  3. I am always looking for more masculine type cards, thank you Lauren.

  4. I do love your watercolour painting.


Thank you for commenting!
