Before I tell you about my card, let me tell you that someone you know personally, made the card of the week over at Hero Arts today. (wink)
Also if you don't already check out the Hero Club Blog, check it out today. The company's owner is the featured blogger this week and talked about the early days of Hero Arts. The challenge this week, is a very interesting one. I'm going to have to think about doing this one....
About this card:
I was playing around without a specific direction the other day and came up with this. The flower and the green background with were just laying around on my desk. I dug out a lot of other stamps to fill in the spaces. (All the stamps are Hero Arts.)
I also used the Nestabilities to create the frame. I accidentally embossed it crooked a few weeks ago and that's why it was sitting around on my desk. I love that Thank You collage (filling the embossed framed area). It's the perfect size for an ATC or to build a card around. I actually bought that stamp from someone on Gingerwood.
On a personal note:
Let me show you something that I've been wanting to talk about for days now. I moved the cards from the top of my TV cabinet because I ran out of room. Here are a few shots of the same group of cards.
After I moved the cards and spread them out on the top of the dresser I got a lot of funny reactions. As they entered my room, everybody reacted in their own way.
Husband said, "That's an impressive lot of cards!" He added last night "I'm still impressed"
The Boy said, "Does this mean that you are popular?
The Other Boy said, "Wow, that's a lot of cards!"
My high school daughter was almost speechless but managed to say, "whoa"!
My college freshman said, "Are they from your fans?" (her word not mine ;) )
My oldest daughter hadn't seen the furniture or the cards until Saturday night said, "Where did all this come from?" and then "WOW!"
I am speechless! It feels so good to have people show their love and concern.
What the cards did for me:
- I'm blessed with and surrounded by all the beauty, made or bought.
- You filled the cards with well wishes, advice (I'm being good) and reminders that you are praying for me.
- I think you "kicked me up a notch" in the eyes of my family. (that's always nice)
I'm feeling pretty good these days. No more pain, but I tire very easily. I ventured out to Wal-mart on Sunday with the 4 kids that are at home and although they did most of the work it totally wiped me out! I went straight to bed for a nap when we got back. Yes, you guessed it, nap is a daily necessity.
One of the reasons I went to Walmart was for clear CD cases. After my nap, I managed to get all my clear stamps organized. I even pulled out the clear stamps I've had for years and never use because they weren't accessible. This basket, by the way, is the one I got at Michaels last week too. I love it when things come together like this. A perfect fit!
So, don't forget to check out the card of the week, on Hero Art's website. I'm still excited about that opportunity. It's a great company.
