Using my Hero Arts stamps

Here's my latest Hero Arts card. This one doesn't seem to stamp out as well as I had planned so I am going to be playing with it in different ways in the coming days.

Hero Arts Stamps

Hey there! I promised to post some of my new stamps from Hero Arts, so here are a few favorites. I have to say I still prefer the wood mounted stamps, but I just can't seem to pass up the cutuest stamps and beautiful phrases that seem to only come in the clear stamps. Alright, I better get back to creating now!

Mother's Day card

Here's the card I made for my mother for Mother's Day ths year. I love this combination of baja blue and Parisian Breeze paper from Stampin' Up. The light on this scan is a little funny, but it looks much better and more elegant in person.

Post Office Goodies Make Me SMILE!!!!

There's nothing better to me than having a great mail day at the post office. I get so excited when I open my box and see goodies inside! Today my cousin sent me an awesome book called Death By Design! It's a mystery novel combined with scrapbooking. I had hear of this trilogy in a scrapbooking magazine a while back, but did not know it was out! This is the first book in the series, and I just can't wait to read it. Also included in the package was a huge bunch of sheets of these awesome stickers, and a great pack of scrapbooking papers. I'm all set for some crafting this weekend! Another fabulous prize in my box was my very own Bagolita from my pen pal Stacey! The Bagolitas are handmade in her state, and she surprised me with one. I love black and wear it all the time, so this one is right up my alley!
