Happy Day!

Hey there!

It's a happy day today for many reasons. It's my first out of nine days off from work, the sun is shining brightly against a gorgeous blue sky, I am heading outside soon to plant the rest of my flowers and I made two cards this morning! Doesn't get much better than that! :)

Once again I've been struggling with finding my mojo, but I really love the new Hero Arts contest and wanted to play along. The sketches they provided this month helped to get my juices flowing, thank goodness!

I created a couple of cards for the sketch portion of the challenge.

I love this fun sketch! I just flipped it on its side and used some bright patterned paper from the Echo Park, "Country Drive," 6x6 pad, which I received as part of my random win over at the Moxie Fab World Blog. The flower, bird and sentiment are all Hero Arts.

Here's my second card using a different sketch.

The Hero Arts flowers were stamped with some bold, StazOn Ink, then cut out using the matching die-cuts from the stamp set. (One of the colors is a dark purple but looks black in the photo.)

That's it for me today. Time to head outside and enjoy this wonderful weather! I love when summer is just beginning!

Have a good weekend and thanks for stopping by! :)
