Giveaway, card and Facebook…


Been meaning to do a little giveaway to one of my previous commenters with no warning – just as a thank you for taking the time to leave me a message. Thought I would share 20 Fantastixs


I used these in my video the other day and just love them.  They are great for applying ink, chalk… just about anything.  You can get more info about them HERE.  And the lucky winner is… Linda!  I emailed you.

Hope you all had the merriest of holidays.  We are still celebrating.  Love spreading it out.  Today?  My mother-in-law's birthday celebration.

Just a quick share today using two of my favorite companies – Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the leaves and added highlighting with colored pencils.  I then used gems to create a flower.  After making the card, it seemed too "cutesy"… so I roughed it up a bit by fraying the edges of the stamped piece with my paper edge distresser from Tim Holtz. 

122809 Gem Flower
Supplies: Papertrey Ink leave stamp, Hero Arts greeting stamp and gems, corner rounder, Tim Holtz paper distresser, colored pencils

Hey… are you on Facebook?  If you are, be sure to follow Hero Arts HERE.  Lots will be going on there. 

Off to do legos with the kids.  All of our kids – ages 3, 12 and 14 – still LOVE legos.  BIG time.  Such a great toy.

See you soon!  (Have more Card Drive prizes to share – working on them. They are good!)

    one of the best parts of Christmas for me this year was watching my now grown up son, father of a 21 month old beautiful little girl, playing Legos (ok, Duplos) together. such memories it brings back. I love moments like this. Even better, they are his Duplos that I saved so many years ago just for this kind of moment.
