Today's the Day!!

What is today??  My day on the Hero Arts blog!!  I have been waiting for this day for a long time.  Well, actually since the oh so talented Sally Traidman announced on July 28, 2010 over at the Hero Arts blog that I was her pick for Win A Day on the blog!  Being picked was something that I had hoped for ever since I joined the Hero Arts Flickr group in January of 2009.   When I found out that I had been picked I was so excited I started shaking all over and could hardly type responses to the congratulatory emails I had received from my Flickr friends, Barb and Robin.  

So, today I have the honor of having some of my projects featured.  I spent a frantic week making my cards and getting them emailed off for Sally to review.  The three she picked you can see here.   I'm going to feature a couple of the cards I made that didn't make the cut.  I love the cards that Sally picked, but I also really liked these two, as well.


For this card I used the new Music Background cling and one of the houses from the Sending Holiday Cheer cling set.  I stamped the music background on some My Minds Eye patterned paper (Snowed In) with white ink.  The house was stamped on kraft cardstock with white ink and trimmed out.  Some Stickles Frosted Lace was added to the roof line.

For this card I used the gorgeous new design block stamp Fabulous Flourish, along with the Antique Writing cling.  I stamped the Antique Writing on white cardstock with Bundled Sage Distress ink.  I then stamped the Fabulous Flourish over the top with VersaMark and clear embossed.   Then I got to work distressing the entire piece with more Bundled Sage ink and Forest Moss Distress ink.  I just love how it turned out.  I stamped the Antique Writing a second time and trimmed out the butterflies and dragonfly.  They were distressed, as well and adhered to the card front.  Finished off the card with some Hero Arts clear rhinestones.

Thanks for taking a peek... I hope you swing by the Hero Arts blog, as well.
