You're so special to me

Good evening!!! How are you all doing?? Fine I hope! I have been feeling the lack of mojo lately so for me the best thing to do is to find a sketch :)

I came across this sketch over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge site:

Here is my card:

I am thinking this would be a great card to send to a friend or daughter. I so LOVE hearts....can you tell LOL!! I used an older Hero Arts Wood block that I still LOVE...K5298 paired with a new Clear 2012 set CL582 Year Round Sentiments...the little hearts are also from this set :)

I am also going to enter this card in this months Hero Arts Challenge

and colour challenge

Thanks for stopping by to visit :) Hugs, TRace

Hello!! Oh how exciting is this new release of the Hero Arts 2012 catalog!! Welcome to the final day :( of the Hero Arts 2012 catalog blog hop with the Hero Hostesses.
You should have arrived here from the super creative site of Heather Doran. If not, or if you happen to discover any broken links along the way, you can find the master link list for the hop HERE. Please report any broken links to Tami by clicking HERE.

Today I have a few cards to showcase some of the newest stamps :)

In this card I am showcasing a new 2012 release stamp from the Hero Arts AC010 Le Journal cling stamp set paired along with a sentiment from the new 2012 Hero Arts clear stamp set CL582 Year Round Sentiments...a must have set :) I used Hero Arts CG125 Friend Definition to add some texture to the Hero Arts PS605 Cerulean Layering Papers. The Pearls are from the Hero Arts Mixed Accents CH212 and CH213.

For this girly card I began with an older Hero Arts cling background stamp CG123 Flower Wallpaper. Then I laid a banner with Hero Arts PS597 Carnation Layering Papers stamped with S5507 Envelope Pattern wood block....another must have stamp ;) to showcase a new 2012 cling stamp set CG406 Very Special. A couple of Hero Arts CH170 pale pink pearls added for interest :)

For this card I also used the Hero Arts AC010 Le Journal cling stamp set paired with the Hero Arts wood block S5447 Large Plaid Pattern stamped on the inked paper. I used Hero Arts PS620 Blush Layering Papers for this shaped card.

I just had to make one more card using the sentiment panel from the new cling stamp release from Hero Arts CG406 Very this set :) :)

With Sympathy

Hello friends!!! Hope you enjoyed the it is back to the grind of work and less crafting :( I wanted to participate in Ellen Hutson's CLASSroom challenge of using a Hero Arts Clear stamp, it is called  Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Clear Take 'n Make....not too hard to do....I have collected a good few Hero Arts stamps over the years:) LOVE this company!!
For this card I made my own background with the diamond shaped stamp and little flower from the set CL549 Butterflies and Wildflowers...feels so good to use these little stamps, for I tend not to do so :)

The grid paper is from Papertrey ink. The frame and sentiment are also from Hero Arts clear sets CL476.

I am also going to enter this in Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" Challenge :)

Thanks again for stopping by to visit!!!
Hugs, TRace
