A Couple of Thank You's

Happy Weekend!

I've got a quick post for you today to share a couple of thank you cards I created using some of my new Hero Arts stamps.

This first one uses the new, Clear Hexagons set. I stamped them with Hero Arts Neon Inks, before cutting them out. The background is stamped with the new, Tiny Ink Spots wood stamp using Soft Granite Shadow Ink.

For my second card, I used the Tiny Ink Spots again, this time embossing it in white, then using Distress Inks to add some color. I die-cut a doily and a layered flower to add to embellish the card, and the sentiment is from another new set called, Fancy Basics. 

 REMINDER: The Hero Arts Hostess blog hop starts on Monday!

Life Can Get Crazy!

Hi There!

In the past week, my life has gotten a bit busier, somewhat stressful and a lot more crazy! Needless to say, when I have a week like that, it takes me away from the things I love the most - family, friends, visiting Flickr and your blogs!

But. . . .I have been crafting. . . .for something very special! It's coming up next week - can ya guess what it is? Here's a hint: It happens every January. Still can't guess? Okay, okay, I'll tell ya. Please scroll down. . . .


YUP, that's right! The Hero Hostesses are all gettin' together for one, big, week-long blog hop so we can show you some of Hero Arts' awesome new stamps from their 2013 catalog! Is that exciting or what?! So make sure, starting on Monday the 14th, you stop by the Hero Arts blog! There will be 5 or 6 blogs to visit each day, with some amazing cards and prizes too!

I'm really excited to share what I've been working on and hope you'll join us and hop along!

Happy weekend! :)
