Hi everyone! Hope your having a wonderful day! My day was made so much better when I saw one of my card sets on the Hero Arts blog today for the Social Thursday! I was having a bit of a rough day since I had such a bad sleep last night, didn't fall sleep until way too late! It has really made my day! I love the Hero Arts blog, and the flickr group and highly encourage you to come and join in on the fun and the challenges! Hero Arts are my favorite stamps! And the ladies on the blog are so awesome! It's kinda funny since today was Clean and Simple (CAS) since I didn't know what CAS was until I asked Virginia Lu a few months ago! I had been doing that style just hadn't realized it!
Also don't forget about the Scrappy Saturday Challenge at Wee Memories, it's sweets with ribbon on top! I would love to see your creations!
Today I have something special! If you remember the picture I posted from Carter's birthday on Saturday my daughter Ariel is wearing the cutest outfit! It's actually my favorite of her summer outfits. The wonderful Lin commented on Ariel's butterfly on her shirt. I wrote her back and told her how I had a card idea in my head from that outfit and did she want to make a card too? So we both made cards inspired by this outfit of Ariel's:
Seriously isn't this the sweetest? As you know I work a bit at a Children's clothing store. The reason is because I shopped there so much they told me I should work there and talked me into it! I may enjoy dressing
I clear embossed the flowers from the Hero Arts set Good thoughts because Ariel's shirt has a floral design on the brown (it's sheer flowers but with her tan you can't see it!) And made the scallops with my friend Charlotte's cricut! I didn't know that some cartridges come with border cuts, how cool is that? I layed them out and glued them together the way I wanted it to be than cut it to 4 1/4 to fit the card. And I colored and added rhinestones to the butterfly (another HA from the Antique Engravings set) I didn't know where I was going to put the hello and was pleased that it fit in the scallops! I can't wait to see what Lin has created! Make sure to check her out here and leave her some love!
