Hero Hostesses Featured and some challenge cards

Hi all - just thought I'd share the card I made for the Hero Arts Blog Social Club post today featuring the current Hero Hostesses.  Heather, Anita, Sharon, Sally & I end our three month tour as Hostesses this Saturday so we had one more feature.  We picked a thank-you theme as we feel so grateful to Hero Arts for their generosity to its Club and Flickr members!!  We had a great time working with each other and with Tami and Libby from the Hero Arts team.

Used the Hero Arts Thanks Definition - a fab Cling, Life of the Party Dots - another fab Cling, and a sentiment from a new set Live and Laugh which I love.  I enjoyed using the emboss/resist technique on the background with fabulous Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

And at this week's craft night with my friends I made these two cards for Lisa Spangler's make-it and mail-it challenge.  Lisa is a fab Hero Arts designer and such a sweetie to host this challenge.  The card on the left is for my brother-in-law who needs some encouragement to face an illness.  The one on the right is for my dear friend (more like a sister) Connie & her hubby who invited me for Easter weekend.  I had a great time and enjoyed the food and hospitality!

Recognize those dots?  They look great with the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain stamp.  The other card used the HA Music Background Cling - love that one - and a clear set I bought at Archiver's, an exclusive from Hero Arts, for the lacy circle, sentiment and butterfly.  Oh, and I squeezed another fave - the Envelope Pattern - into the card on the right.  I also meant to stamp it lightly over the tag on the left but forgot.  Thanks for stopping!
