Close to My Heart Giveaway

We are so excited to announce our first giveaway!! It's so easy and look how CUTE her stuff is :) Elizabeth has been so good to us! You've got a week to enter and your odds are pretty good ;) GOOD LUCK!!

Hi girlfriends :)  My name is Elizabeth and I blog over at Broken Treasures.  I am super excited to be guest posting here on My Best Friends Blog and offering you all a great giveaway.   Chelsie & Christy  left a sweet comment on one of my scrapbook pages a few weeks back and when I went to check out this here blog I immediately fell in love!  I love the idea of a girls night out, crafting with friends and sharing stories through a blog together.  

I have always been an avid scrapbooker and discovered Close To My Heart about two years ago.  Since then I have really gotten into card making and other paper crafts and I'm having so much fun!
Here are a few samples a recent scrapbook pages I've done

I've also discovered digital with Studio J and absolutely love it! (especially the part where I don't have to pay a thing to play around with it and there is absolutely NO downloading onto my computer)
Here are a few samples of some digital layouts

 However, the thing I love the most about Close To My Heart is their acrylic stamps.  I was never much of a stamper until I saw these completely clear stamps that you put onto clear blocks!  Truly amazing and so easy to use.

Today I'm giving away a double stamp set (valued at $35.90) that is perfect for making cards.
 ***this set is no longer available for purchase***

Here are a few cards I made with this stamp set over the weekend using the Dotty For You paper pack (available for only $5 this month with a $35 purchase).

I used a photo album on the Close To My Heart Facebook page as inspiration.  Here are some of their sample cards made with this stamp set.

Would you like this stamp set to make your own cards?
