So Grateful 4 U

I made this card for my niece, Megan. I love that the Hero Arts flower from the Bold Pop Design set can be used as a sun. It's one of my favorite stamp/die sets. I also love the cloud in this For the Record Simon Says Stamp set. Another fav of mine. 

Hope your having a sunny week!

Make Art Everyday

My Hero Arts hostess sister, Cheiron, made this card a few weeks ago and I just love it! I asked Cheiron if she would mind if I used her card for inspiration. She is so sweet and willingly agreed. Thanks Cheiron! I  "cased" her card and put my own spin on it - which is very close to Cheiron's original card.  Here is my card:

I used several stamps from the Stamp Your Story Brush Strokes set so I'm going to enter it into the Hero Arts contest. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you're making life better by making art every day. :)

Another Scramble

I had a chance to play along with the Hero Arts Flickr group's scramble today. The scramble theme was to use another company's stamp along with a Hero Arts stamp, so I created this card. The dog stamp is from a Simon Says Stamp clear set. The background bird stamp is actually this Christmas stamp from Hero Arts.

I had to make a very quick card because we were going out of town for the day. The hardest part was cutting out the dog's tail. :)

Stamp Your Story Contest

I haven't played along with a Hero Arts contest in awhile, so I thought I'd create something for the Stamp Your Story contest.  I was inspired by the colors and the paint splats on Lisa's tags here. I made a bookmark and a card to go with it using the Brush Strokes stamp set and several of the mid-tone inks.

Thanks for stopping by. Have you played along with the contest yet? If not, go now and create. :)

Masculine Card

I made this card for my Dad for Father's Day and realized that I never posted it here. I love using the mustache as part of the sentence, "I must ask you." :)  On the inside of the card, it said, "Who Loves You?" My Dad often asks me that rather than saying, "I love you", he'll say, "Who loves you?" or "You know who loves you, sweetheart." That's why I added the heart on the card.  My Dad chuckled when he read the card.

Hope your week is going great. I'm so glad the weekend is almost here! Aren't you?
