Subway Art St. Patricks Day Art using Deflecto Frames

I am not usually one to decorate for St. Patricks Day but when I received this bright, cheerful 4" x 6" frame from Deflecto Crafts I knew I wanted to create something. My Grandpas' birthday is on St. Patricks Day so this frame also reminds me of him.  Here is what I came up with:

I found a subway art style print I really liked on pinterest and printed it. From there, the whole project quickly came together. The end result really makes me smile... it is a bright spot in my office during these ever changing days of Spring. The best part was how simple it was to create using these frames...more to come with them!!

It's Time... Free Bonuses for Everyone Who Joins My Close To My Heart Team in March......

It's March 1st.... Free Products for all who join the Close To My Heart membership!

Quick reminder of what I am talking about:
Have you ever thought of becoming a member of Close To My Heart? I think of it a little like joining a wholesale club (like Costco or Sam's Club) to  make sure you are getting the best price possible on all of the items you want to buy. Let me tell you this,  I would absolutely LOVE to have you on my team. My Inspired Hearts Team is ALL over the US. Now let me tell you what is going on in March ... It IS the best promotion CTMH has ever offered for people who want to join. 

EVERYONE who joins my team in MARCH will get this Brand New Shoulder Tote in addition to our amazing Consultant Kit (valued at over $300 in products). And guess what.. it only costs $99 to join! 
Isn't this bag cute! 
This shoulder bag has snap closure and comfortably fits our 12"x12" paper organizers. It's perfect for carrying projects in progress, idea books, papers, small tools, and embellishments. Seriously, it's a MUST HAVE! 

BUT.... that is not all that is being offered. If you sell (or purchase) $300 in products within your first 40 days as a consultant you'll get our Brand New Rolling Bag for FREE!!!!! I am so excited for new consultants, and a little jealous too. This bag sells for $149.95 and you can get it FREE and I will help you to do just that!

So who is ready to become a member? Who wants in on this membership to get your prodcuts at a discount? I think of CTMH like a membership at a wholesale club... like Costco or Sam's club... once you join, you get to take advantage of all of the faboulous prices... But with Close To My Heart, it is not an annual fee, but a 1 time free that ALSO gives you a TON of product with that fee!
