shake it up with cinnamon hearts

Hello!  Happy Friday!  Late last night I quickly before bed uploaded to the flickr gallery three cards for the Hero Arts challenge since it was the last day.  The first card is a shaker valentine card.  I love love shaker cards and cinnamon hearts are perfect!  I had the idea a while ago but finally made it!  I am also going to enter this card in the Caardvarks red heart challenge, which is create a card that has a red heart in it.  This card has one little red heart stamped, but many little ones shaking about.  Here is my card:


Here is the card layingflat with the candies all about:



The birds and the twig are from an HA set that is exclusive to Archiver's.  My hubby was in Minneapolis last year and I called the store and picked that one out without seeing it, I wanted birds!  Happy Valentines Day is from the cheapie stamps at Michaels from a few years ago..  And I used my new HA cling dots stamp.  Sadly my baby played with my white stamp pad and I have yet to find the bottom of the pad , I am hoping I find it soon and that since it's pigment ink that it won't be all dried up!

I have another two cards to share.  I made one for my daughter's friend who lives across the street, for her birthday.  I think her mom my neighbor thinks oddly of me and my papercrafting habit.  It's odd when you meet someone who doens't get it right?  A lot of people may not do it but think it's great all the same.  The pressure was on with making her a card!  I used my new Girl Holding Flowers stamp by HA, love her! And my neighbor and her daughter loved the card, along with one of my neighbors good friend! 



I made another one simular:



I colored them with my Derwent and Prisma color pencils.  This is my first time coloring a "person" stamp!  It's a lot of fun!  She is so cute!

Products used (not mentioned):  Hero Arts CG 139, H5330, Cl272, Nesties Labels 8, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder, American Craft Ribbon, Bazill cardstock, colorbox white pigment ink (the lost one now!)

I have also read quite a bit this week.  I am working on my third book.  And I made a lot of cards!  It must be the cold weather and not having shifts!  I read: 
It was pretty good!  But even better was: 
 Wow what a hard book to read but yet what a good book!  The end upset me, and apparently the end of the movie is different.  I want to see the movie now!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!  I have plans everyday, so it shall be fun! I am off to go and look for the white stamp pad!  It's driving me crazy I really want just to run to Michael's and buy a new one, but than you know what happens I will find the old!

Your heart shaker is very clever Anita. Love your girl cards too.. I haven't read the first book but have read My Sister's Keeper ... so true, hard but good. I must admit to have a tear or two during the book. I also read a few others of hers.... all quite emotional. Enjoy have the time to craft and read.
