Friends are Treasures

Hello!  I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's Day!  We sure did!  I enjoyed the day at home with the kids and Ariel had a friend over to play too so that was fun!  The weather warmed up this weekend so we have been enjoying some fun in the wet snow!  On Sunday Ariel went to her first movie party to see Gnomeo and Juliet!  She had a great time!  Chad and I also went on a double date to see the new Adam Sandler movie Just Go With it!  It was pretty good!  Fun weekend!

Today I have a card to share that I made for the current challenge at Hero Arts!  I am so excited about Hero Arts pairing up with Basic Grey and having matching stamps and paper that it made me look at some patterned paper I have had since the summer and haven't touched.  Now that I have I can't stop!  Here is the first card I made with this paper, it's by My Mind's Eye and it's a double sided sheet that I used both sides:



Products used: Stamps all Hero Arts, Silhouette Spray, Magical Background.  PTI ric rac and Mat stack die, My Minds Eye PP, PTI buttons, white embossing powder, inks: SU Chocolate Chip and versamark.

I think the magical background works really well with this paper!  And I think that the green button makes the card!  I think I am going to attempt to make a manly card with this paper also!

I hope that your enjoying your week, I think that February is flying by way too fast!
