Final Day of the Hero Hostess Blog Hop

It's Day 5 of the Hero Hostess Blog Hop and Anita, Heather, Trace, Kryssi, and Jenny really rocked it today!!  Be sure to leave them lots of love and comments for their beautiful projects!

If you want to comment on my Blog Hop post for the chance to win Hero Arts prizes, you still have the chance to do that - just go here.  Winners will be announced on the Hero Arts Blog on Monday 1/16!

Today I'm sharing a couple more cards that didn't find their way into my Blog Hop post.  I had lots of crafting time last week while on vacation and went to town with my new 2012 Hero Arts stamps!!  This first card stayed out of my post as a few of my hosti sisters were using it.  I'm sharing it now so you can see another look to it.  The red label was crimped in a Fiskars tool - I liked the look.  See that butterfly?  It's a replacement - I had one beautifully colored at home with Copics which I grabbed to put on a retirement card!  Do any of you do that - rob Peter to pay Paul?  So, I had to make a replacement in AZ, colored this one with Distress Inks.  Didn't quite get the shades I wanted but - hey - slapped some Stickles on there and I'm happy with it.  This one went to a friend thanking her for a Christmas gift.

Butterfly thanks
Hero Arts stamps used:  CG414 Greetings, CG405 Leaf and Floral Background, CL574 Say it All, CG125 Friend Definition

Here's another thank you card - collage style.  I'm not very good at creating collage backgrounds compared to some of my Hero Arts Flickr friends.  Thought I'd share it now to see what you think.  You can't really see it on the kraft, but the Newspaper Background is on it as well as behind the sentiment half circle.

Thanks for stopping and sharing this fun week with the Hero Hostesses.  My apologies to Tuesday's group - Tiffany Ervin, Judy JungNancy Krueger, Robin Kubasik, & Lin Brandyberry.  I had trouble with Blogger and was so busy sorting out my post for Wednesday that I couldn't get a post done linking to theirs.  So, hope you've hopped over to visit them too!!!
