Hero Arts Hostesses Blog Hop

Hello,  friends! Welcome to Hero Arts week long 2012 catalog blog hop with the Hero Hostesses! This is the first renunion that I have ever looked forward to attending and it's so nice to see all of my friends.Today, you be arriving from the talented & sweet SHARON DUNN's photostream.
If not, or if you happen to discover any broken links, you can always find the master link list for the hop 
HERE. Also, please be sure to report any broken links to Tami by clicking HERE. Thanks!
If you are new to my blog each of my posts will showcase two cards. One super simple and the other one.....well... more a bit detailed. For both cards I used this "Large Flower Background" and this fun sentiment set all from Hero Arts. 
This simpler card was inspired by this class called "Clean & Simple Card Making" The class has such great ideas and is so incredibly inspiring.  There is still time to register & take advantage of discounts etc.
You can find the flower pot here. I stamped the background on the flower pot and colored it easily because I already had my colors selected from the previous card. The center flower was just cut out from the background after I stamped it once more. 
For the center oval I traced a Spellbinder racetrack oval and cut out the insides of the oval. The Copic colors I used are linked below this post. To get lots of dimension I used Scrap Dots behind the face of the card. If they are sold out it's worth the wait. Just be sure to wait over night for the Scrap Dots to dry. If you like my coloring you will find some of my tips here and I will be doing more videos. 
Thanks so much for joining me today, and thanks to Hero Arts for hosting the best renunion I have been to plus I can attend with my sweats on.

Card Kit Giveaway!!!

This contest is over....sorry. You can see who won in this post. Thanks for entering. :) There will be more opportunities to win great products on my blog :)

Hello Friends, How was your weekend?? I "taught" my monthly stamps class at my LLS and always leave feeling inspired and with a full heart.

Speaking of hearts I have a giveaway from Simon Says Stamp!! 

Simon Says stamps is now selling card kits that are chock full of goodies !! Wait until you read the list of what the kits contain. Click here to see the all of the goodies in the kit. If you sign up for February's kit you will get Tim Holtz's limited edition distress inks as a bonus!  The kits can be ordered one at a time here or you can order the kits monthly here. 
If you suscribe you save $5.00 off of each kit.

What I love about these kits are stress free crafting plus I think it's a huge time saver with all of the 6x6 papers, embellishments, ribbon, gems etc. selected for you & right at your finger tips. This is always the hardest part for me when I am creating a card. A few years ago I played with some card kits and it was such joy having all of the supplies right before you. All you have to do is stamp. Love that!! I am excited to get my kit and share cards from the kit. 
Good luck and thanks for your visit. Hugs, Kathy


Thank You Anonymous

Hello Friends, It's me again :)
 I want to dedicate this post to a very special lady !
 I don't know who "she" is but, I hope she follows my blog?? I want to give her a bucket of hearts because she left me a wonderful gift certificate for me at my favorite LLS. I can't express how that gift really touched me and still warms my heart. She wanted to remain anonymous so hopefully she will know how grateful I am!! I purchase something special so that whenever I use it I will think of her gift & how it will continue to give me those warm feelings of a beautiful surprise & the meaning of her gift.
 Have a great week. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I wanted the hearts in the wagon to look like the mini candy hearts that you eat with small words on them. I was to afraid to write on them in case I messed up the card.
P.S.S. In case you are wondering yes, I made Mimi a wig like I did in this post.
