Hero Arts Birds

This is another card I made for my auction donation. It is made with a new Hero Arts wood mounted stamped. I paper pieced the birds. The border on the left is done with an acrylic stamp, also from Hero Arts. There are three little blue jewels below the birds that don't show up very well in this picture. My cards and bag sold for $65 tonight! This is our school's major fundraiser and I think we probably did very well especially considering the economy. What a blessing!

Birds and Blooms Card Set

This is one of the cards I made for a set of ten cards that I packaged up in a cute Vera Bradley bag for our school's Gala and Auction. This is my favorite of the set. The flowers were stamped from a new Hero Arts acrylic set. I used Prima flowers, punched flowers, crystals, and a cute little flocked butterfly brad as well. The ribbon is actually green but doesn't show up well in this photo. The background was run through the Cuttlebug.
I was able to go to a fun event yesterday. It was a Fiskars Fun Day. There were about two hundred ladies (and a few men) there. We did four workshops and at the end of the day, Fiskars gave away all of the tools we had been using! We received lots of cute paper from Heidi Grace, stickers, a Fiskers finger trimmer, and some other goodies too. It was a great day!

Valentine Card

This is a Valentine Card I made with a new Hero Arts stamp set. I used brown and blue instead of the traditional colors and really liked how it turned out. The ribbon is from My Favorite Things. I don't know why this is so dare, but in the lower right corner are three blue crystals. I hope you've had a great weekend!

I've really been stamping away since my power came back on! I made this card using a My Favorite Things image, copic markers, and Basic Grey "Boxer" paper. I bought the ribbon at the local fabric store. This was a fun card to make! I'm still learning with those markers, though! It is really snowing here again. Probably had two or three inches by the time school was out. My children were very anxious. They kept asking if I thought the roads were slick or if they'd lose power again. We sometimes forget how things impact children. Yesterday was the 100th day of school! I can't believe that in about 80 days school will be out for the summer break.

Last Winter Card

In honor of our snow and ice festival last week, I'm uploading the last snow card of the season. I hate to admit it, but I've had enough!! I cuttlebugged the white, used my cricut for the snowflakes. The sentiment is from an unknown acrylic set. I stamped a little white snowflake on the inside. I hope this finds you home, warm, with light! I am thankful that I have all three tonight! Blessings and keep looking up!
