Lotus Love

Good Morning!  I have a pretty Hero Arts card to share today using their super awesome, beautiful set Lotus Leaves.  I love the larger sized flower in the set that you can use to fill up a whole card (like I did:))!  The set also has smaller images that are equally pretty and useful!  I used a sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings also, such a pretty scripted thinking of you.  The paper along the bottom is from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes Soda Fountain collection and was cut with my new Memory Box Pearl Lace Border die.  Did you know i {heart} papers is carrying some Memory Box dies now?  I am so excited about it!!

That's it from me today, it is a snowy wintery day around here which is pretty but also annoying if you have to leave the house...which I do!  Have a great rest of the week!!

Spring Color

Hi there and Happy Wednesday!  One day closer to the weekend-hooray!  We have a three day weekend here in the US to celebrate President's Day so it will be extra nice!  We got some snow last night and it looks so pretty out there - cold but pretty!  Mikey and I cleared off the driveway and then threw snowballs for a while.  I made these two cards the other night with some bright colors that remind me of spring, which I welcome when it finally arrives!  Both have the same layout and design...used a few Hero Arts sets for the one above - You Are The Best, Floral (Sizzix dies & stamps) and Thinking of You Messages

The only things different on this card are of course the color and I used PTI's Turning a New Leaf set and matching dies, also a different sentiment but still from the same set.  I think I like the flourish on the first one better but the turquoise color combo better. 

Thanks for visiting with me today, have a great one!!

Valentine Cards

Good Morning!  I haven't made or shared any cards for quite a while it seems...but last night I made some Valentine cards and had fun with some wonderful Hero Arts stamps!  The one above is for a friend, I like to give a few friends little goodies and a card on Valentine's Day.  The hearts are from Hero Arts Many Hearts clear set and the sentiment is from their Celebrate Everyday clear set.  That lovely script background is an older wood stamp from Hero Arts too, one that I purchased a really long time ago and still love!

This card is for my husband, I just love that background and can't wait to use it more.  It is called Watch Gears, the sentiment is from the Many Hearts set too.  I love all the glitter I added to this one, not overwhelming but just enough to highlight all the hearts!!

And last but certainly not least today, is a simple card I made for one of my little boys.  They appreciate simple cards so I just die cut a heart, added some woodgrain paper and glitter - done!!

Thank you for stopping by today and thank you to everyone who ordered stuff from me this last week!  I hope you all enjoy your new stuff!!  Have a very Happy Valentine's Day if I don't stop in before then!!
