Sending warm wishes

The end of the school term has FINALLY arrived and I have 2 weeks off! Time to get crafty and I did just that today!

I thought I would enter this into two challenges. Firstly, A Blog Named hero has their first challenge – Challenge #1: Playing Favourites. I have used lots of colours of my favourite coloured folded notes cards from Hero Arts to create the background (LOVE all the colours!). Then to top it off, I dug through my HA supplies and used some favourite background stamps to add some interest. The second challenge is over at the Hero Arts Blog where the theme is Sunshine and Showers. I think my card fits into the theme nicely.


Stamps: Hero Arts Flourish Background (CG119), Hero Arts Flower Dot Pattern (CG330), Hero Arts Friend Definition (CG125), Hero Arts Envelope Pattern (S5507), Hero Arts Dots and Flowers (S5213), Hero Arts Flower Wood Background (S5142), Hero Arts All Occasions Messages (CL272)

Ink: Distress Inks – Wild Honey, Chipped Sapphire, Versacolor – Turquoise, Green Tea, Bark, Purple, VersaFine Onyx Black

Card: Hero Arts folded note cards – Hero Hues – Blush, Pool, Floral, Foliage, Sunshine, Sea, AnnaBelle Stamps pre-cut cards

Other Supplies: Die-namics Die – Hearts a Plenty, Cuttlebug, Jane’s Doodles button, AnnaBelle Stamps 0.8mm twine – white, Glue dots, 3D foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by,
