I adore Shari Carroll. We became friends a few years ago when I started working for Hero Arts. And even though we have very different lives (she has two older boys and lives in a small town… I have young kids and live in a big town, etc.), we instantly became friends. Not just friends, but the soulmate-kind-of-friends that just grab your heart in an amazing way. Like you have always known each other. I adore and respect her, admire and love her. In fact, one of my favorite things about Shari is that we say "I love you" lots to each other. I think that is a sign of a true friend.
Another thing that makes me love Shari so much is how talented she is. She is my favorite cardmaker, hands down. She never disappoints. I create a lot of cards that are inspired by her, and here is another. I love THIS card by Shari, and created this one based on it…
Thanks, Shari, for always inspiring me… and for just being you. God was in a really good mood the day you were born. Love you.
Next, I wanted to share a funny card. I didn't intend for it to be funny. I just started making this card for Audrey… masking off the circle… inking… inking scallops for clouds… stamping… coloring… glittering.
Then I realized…
… the card was upside down.
I thought you would enjoy the laugh, so here it is, before it went in the trash.
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps and glitter, EK Success punches for masking.
Hope you have a good Friday. See you tomorrow.
