From Jeanette: You’re Invited to My Birthday!

Yesterday we had our traditional Staff Appreciation Breakfast, catered by the endearing Waffle Love food truck. The sight of this colorfully painted truck pulling into our parking lot was more than enough to brighten our day! Our mouths started watering just thinking about the crispy sweetness and creamy decadence of the waffles inside the truck. They are so yummy! In my perfect world, they would bring the corporate office breakfast every day.IMG_0818 (1)It was wonderful to spend a beautiful March morning enjoying these fantastic waffles with my Close To My Heart family. These great people work so hard to keep the company running at its best, and I love to show them my appreciation in ways that are fun for everyone. And where there are waffles, there are always smiles.

20150326_103510There were some great memories shared together yesterday morning. I believe that all good things in life are better when they’re shared—including birthdays. And guess what? Today just so happens to be mine! It’s hard to believe that March 27 has come around again, but I’m so excited that it has. Birthdays are a beautiful gift and a touching reminder of the past years of life we’ve been blessed with—ups, downs, and everything in between.

This year I want to share my birthday with each of you in an extra special way: I want to be the one who gives the presents! I’ll be giving away 10 special birthday bundles that each contain a Workshops on the Go® Blossom Cardmaking Kit and the four ink pads you’ll need to make the cards, which are Archival Black Exclusive Inks™ Pad, Honey Exclusive Inks™ Pad, Pear Exclusive Inks™ Pad, and the Smoothie Exclusive Inks™ Pad.Unknown-8Leave a comment below for your chance to win! We’ll select 4 commenters from the blog, 3 from Facebook, and 3 from Instagram. Comment in all three places to increase your chances! We’ll announce the winners on the blog on Tuesday, March 31.

So I guess what I should really say is happy birthday to YOU! May the year ahead be full of blessings.

  12. Hi ! I live the color palmettes you use but are these ink colors from your company or affiliate companies? I can’t find the inks to purchase them. Every card or color combo I go to google the names of the inks and come up with various brands with similar names. Links to the items would be good possibly.

    • Hello! All Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads are offered exclusively through Close To My Heart. However, with the exception Archival Black ink, we no longer carry the ink colors mentioned in this post. The closest equivalents from our current color palette are as follows:

      – Sundance in place of Honey
      – Green Apple in place of Pear
      – Flamingo or Papaya in place of Smoothie

      We hope this helps!
