You are Special to me

It's web artist week again on the Hero Club Blog. One of the cards shown today was made by me. I'll have a card there tomorrow too, so if you get a chance go on over and take a look. Today's theme is Thank You and I'm sure you'll be amazed at all the wonderful cards using the same set.

Today's card is also a card made with Hero Arts stamps. Actually, the flower is from the same set I used yesterday. I told you I loved this set. I really like the message set too. I still can't believe that it's only been a year since I dared to try clear stamps for the first time! Do you remember my Cupcake Confession post from last January? I used one of the long cards again. I think this size is perfect for writing a letter. Remember back in the olden days when we used to write letters? I need to figure out who to write to that I'd have that much to say.

Stamps:Artistic Borders and All Occasions Messages (Hero Arts)
Ink: Distress Ink Peeled Paint and Scattered Straw (Ranger)
Card Stock: Long White Note Cards (Hero Arts)
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Other: Flower Buttons (Hero Arts), Embroidery Floss
Same as yesterday's card, I added Prisma glitter in spots and the buttons are held on the card with the floss.

Before I go, I've got one personal update. You are looking at a Spelling Bee classroom winner again( he won last year too, remember?)! Actually he was one of the two from his classroom. This picture was taken after he participated in the school wide spelling bee a couple of weeks ago.

Congratulations to the Spelling B Champ!! I love to hear about successes of little people - building their confidence and character (challenging moments do that too ;o)).

I really dig the pedals on your flower - your coloring and bling give them life. Lovely card!!
