Hello! Happy Thursday to you! It's a dreary cool day here, one that reminds us that winter is on it's way! I've been enjoying my day at home with Carter and I babysat my friends two little boys today too. It was good they had a lot of fun and the youngst is just 1. I very much enjoyed cuddling him and by the end of the day thought to myself I could just keep him! :>
Today I have a card that I made for the current Hero Arts October challenge. One of the challenges is to make Holiday cards with non Holiday stamps! At first I was a bit thrown off and didn't think I would play with this part of the challenge. But than I started thinking of using a small stamp in the Wildflowers and Butterflies Hero Arts set to make a colorful background and realized I could do a Christmas one! Here it is:
I stamped one of the small flower stamps from the Wildflowers and Butterflies HA set over and over to create the background. Than I tied the bow and than stamped the sentiment from a HA Christmas sentiment set. Added some rhinestones for a bit of bling, foam squares for depth and there you go! I love how this background looks. I think it works really well for a Christmas card!
Well I am off. Chad is out watching hockey with a good friend and the kids are in bed. It's quiet here! Lately I've been very inspired so I am off to get creative! I have a whole bunch of card ideas in my head! Plus tonight is a good tv night with grey's anatomy, private practice, the mentalist, big bang and the office! Yesh too many good thing we PVR them and watch them through the weekend!
