I've moved....

 Hello to all my followers,   I wanted to give to you my new address...     I will be shutting down this createful heart cards blog at some point, but wanted to make mention of the move... so if you want to still follow me,  go to that address.    Hope to see you there.  Hugz

Shop is closed

  It's sad to have to start out this post on the negative, but my shop is now closed.   I was hoping to be on Etsy for a long time.   Honestly my team and I were looking forward to the Christmas time challenge, and continue into the new year with confidence.    Over time this blog will begin to look and "feel" different.    No longer a challenge blog.   I do thank everyone that entered our challenges.   It was a lot of fun. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a Happy New Year! Mary

Hettie's Christmas Box

  Christmas is just around the corner.... and looks like Hettie might be looking to see what she would like to place on her tree.    I created this image in 2020.  And it's one that never found its way into my online shop.    This card is very basic.    Card base is Blue Yonder Card Stock from My Favorite Things, and the colorful plaid paper is from MFT.    I am in love with this online shop.  My first order from them came so nicely wrapped, everything placed in tissue paper folded with great care.     Now I am just rambling.   Btw I do appreciate my followers to this blog, leave a comment I read each one. Thank you, Mary

Regretfully I must close.....

  Hello,  It's with much regret that I must close my Createful Heart Design etsy shop, effective January 2022.   I have received some news about new regulations that will go into effect on this date.   Tax requirements that will be imposed upon me.    Actually, I will have to close my shop before this date, cause if I don't my shop will be suspended.    We will no longer have any kind of card challenges.   I would like to thank all of you that have entered our challenges on a regular basis.   And have kept Createful Heart Design as a favorite.    And I appreciate all that have made purchases from my shop.       I have for the most part enjoyed every minute of creating new images over the years, since this business started in 2017.    This step isn't an easy one to do, as I thought Etsy was going to be my home for many years to come.   My heart is sad.    And there have been many commitments made, as I have been a sponsor over a the years as well.     Even though my shop wil
