Day 4 of a Hero Arts + A Muse Challenge…

It's Day 4 of my challenge with the extra fun Julie Ebersole – a Hero Arts + A Muse Challenge. These two company's stamps work so well together!

Today we are using the Hero Arts Cozy Moments and the A Muse Snow Gent (great name!) stamps.

Day 4
Mine is super simple. I applied a thin line fo Glossy Accents just along the bottom and two sides to create a pocket for a Starbucks gift card…

And it is as easy as that to make someone smile. πŸ™‚

Now head on over to Julie's blog to see what she created – I am sure it is fab.

Oh, and the winner of Latrice's necklace giveaway is Pam. (I emailed you.)

Eek… one more thing! Creating Keepsakes just announced their 2011 writers and such. (A GREAT list!) I have gotten a few emails since I am no longer listed as a Contributing Writer. Yep – I decided to hang up my hat and retire from my article. I will miss it, but just felt it was time as I was running out of creative juice. πŸ™‚ But I will still work with CK here and there – I love that team. πŸ™‚

Happy Friday.

  2. I have really enjoyed your challenges with Julie this week. I laugh when you say you kept it simple because simple to one is not simple to another. KWIM? LOL! It is so good to see two different perspectives using the same stamps. I get alot from these challenges. Thank you.
