A Happy Heart

Hi all - it's been awhile AGAIN since my last post.  Just got home from Arizona where I was vacationing for the holidays.  Great weather and lots of fun with family.  Naturally there was plenty of time to relax and make cards!  I was busy playing with new 2012 Hero Arts stamps for the Hero Hostess Blog Hop which started today and runs all this week.  My day is coming up on Wednesday so look for me then - I'm so excited!!

For today, here's a simple card I made for my mom who's such a great support to me in all I do.  I stamped the new Newspaper Background in a light gold onto my kraft card base, then stamped the sentiment - a great message from the new clear set Good Friends in the corner with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I stamped one of the hearts from the new Art of the Card cling set Untitled Heart (this week's stamp of the week 25% off!) on pink Basic Grey paper using Fired Brick Distress Ink.  Cut it out and popped it up with foam tape and added a twine bow.  Inked the card edges and added a few gems under the sentiment - Done! 

Thanks for stopping and be sure to check out the Blog Hop all week!

Linda, your card is gorgeous and I'm sure your mom will love it! I love Newspaper Background stamped in gold and your soft distressing is beautiful! The heart with the twine bow is so pretty too!

I can't wait to see what you've created for the blog hop!
