Here is another entry I made for Hero Arts June Challenge. I selected a different sketch for this card and spent way too much time on it. Just couldn't seem to find that last little touch to make it like my head wanted it :) Have you ever done that - visualize it in your head but the parts just didn't seem to come together?

Thank you for taking the time to stop by!

I love these hearts. Jennifer McGuire shared them on one of her cards. The sentiment is HA CL493. I have used it a lot since I got the set. They are colored with copics and have glossy accents on them.

Blessings to you!

Just Saying Hello~Butterflies

We are having some kind of gorgeous weather here in south Georgia and we are loving it because our first real heat wave is coming in this weekend. Have been trying to spend more time outside because once the heat arrives I tend to stay where it's cool - which is inside :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Sending Warm Wishes

I recently received my Hero Arts CL 613 Thinking of you Kite and love one of the sentiments with it so I actually used it first. I love the kite that comes with it but will play with it shortly.

The border is made from accent punch-outs by COLORBOK.

My supplies are listed below. First time using InLinkz :) May need to fine tune the number of columns.

Pot of Flowers

I recently got my Spellbinders Flower Pots. They are really large and will work well to make a shaped card. I had some scrap flowers that I had colored this past fall so I tried to find the right size base to use. In doing so it actually made me bump up to a 5 x 7 card. Haven't worked with that much space in a while but it was fun.

Supplies: Flowers~Hero Arts H5481; Sentiment~Hero Arts CL434; Flower Pot~Spellbinders; Butterflies~Magenta C41066-H; Flowers were colored with copics and I used a scrap of textured card stock to define the rim of the pot from the base; Leaves are a Sizzix die

Thank you for stopping by!

Blessings to you~
