Please Vote For My Card!

Hi everyone!

I found out that a card I entered in the Paper Crafts Connection Stamping Royalty Contest is an honorable mention card along with four other cards.

To pick an honorable mention winner there is a vote going on.  The card with the most votes wins so I am asking all my followers to please visit the vote page HERE and cast your ballot for my card.  The voting ends at noon on Thursday and you can vote once per day.

Here is my card that I entered in the Thank You category.  I used a reverse mask to stamp a variety of Thank images in a heart shape.

I would truly appreciate each and every vote for my card. So please stop by every day until Thursday and cast your ballot HERE!

Thank you so very much for your support!!!

Hero Arts April Challenge

Well, I've managed to squeak in a card for this months challenge over at Hero Arts. The theme is to create a project for the ladies and I was also inspired by the sketch provided.

Here's my project, a pocket card that holds a gift card.
Sue McRae HA April 2013

For the large flower I coloured some vellum with alcohol inks and white embossed the image. I did some tone-on-tone stamping for the pocket and background and added some sparkle with two stripes of Glitter Ritz (the photo doesn't show how pretty the glitter really is).

The large sentiment is from a set called Made with Love. Love the large size of the images and the mix of fonts. I attached the gift card onto an embossed tag which can be pulled out from the pocket. Oh, I also dyed some May Arts Silk Ribbon with Distress Stains for a custom colour (which isn't as vibrant as in the photo).

I'm also entering this card in Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for visiting today, I appreciate you taking the time to leave comments!

CAS-ual Birthday Bash

There's a two week Birthday Bash going on over at CAS-ual Fridays to celebrate Michele's Birthday!
CFC99 Birthday Bash
I made a quickie card using the flowers from CAS-ual Fridays Truth Is stamp set and coloured them with Stardust Pens. For the paint drops I used Delicata Golden Glitz ink which is such a pretty and sparkly gold.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Birthday Michele!

A Blog Named Hero Loves Simon Says

Hi everyone and welcome to our last week of birthday festivities at A Blog Named Hero. We're celebrating our one year birthday with the fabulous Simon Says.  Simon Says has been with us since the launch of the blog, generously offering a gift voucher for each of our challenges. Thank you so much for your generosity Simon Says!!!!!

Today's card is a CAS design featuring Hero Arts and Simon Says products.
ABNH & Simon Says Collaboration
To get some great texture on the flowers I die cut the Fresh Daisies, stamped them with the Envelope Liner Background in Versamark and applied PanPastels on top. I die cut the "you" and used PanPastels on that as well.  If you would like more info on using PanPastels check out my video here.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and visited during our Birthday Bash.  I hope we've inspired you with all our projects and our love for Hero Arts.  Please visit ABNH to see what the other talented designers have created and don't forget Simon Says carries the entire line of Hero Arts products here.
