Hero Arts Window Card Share + Card Drive


Just sharing a card I have over on the Hero Arts blog today. Be sure to head over there to see instructions. It is a simple card with a fun surprise…

See that greeting “floating” over the ornament window? It is hiding something inside…

Isn’t she a cutie…

All the instructions can be found over at the Hero Arts blog post, and all the supplies can be found below. However, this is the main goodie I used – the ornament stamp and die combo:

I love the unexpected when it comes to card making.

Lots of people have been asking if I am doing a card drive this holiday season. Due to a lot of changes happening all at once in my little world, I had to take this season off. However, my friend Vera is doing one!

You can send holiday cards anytime from now to November 30 to this address:

    Oh my word, that is the most adorable card ever! Well, the card itself is wonderful, (and I oohed out loud at that), but the photo makes it breathtaking! Lila is such a beauty! I want to gobble up her preciousness! Enjoy each day’s sweet little blessings, even if they’re sometimes hidden behind the seemingly mundane. Everything you do for the Lord stores up treasures in heaven. Hugs!

  7. I love that sweet photo of Lila! Awesome card with the acetate window and ornament – so creative! :)
