Some Cards to Share....

Yesterday I had the opportunity to share a day on the Hero Arts blog with the wonderful and talented Jenn Biederman.  She floors me with her creativity and pushed me to make some fun cards with lots of detail.  Thanks Jenn!!!

This first card uses the Mi Casa Set (totally adorable!).   The cloud background is from Hero made for Silhouette....have you checked all the stuff we have there lately? Soooo FUN!!!


 I took advantage of the house shape and made a sliding roof with a hidden message.


Next up is my Birthday Balloons card inspired by Jenn and the Pixar movie UP.  I loved that movie and the floating house!!!

And lastly, everyone knows I'm a coffee nut....here's my take on one of Jenn's cards with a hidden message in the coffee pot lid.  I use Prismacolor pencils for all the coloring...love them!!!


Here's a little close up of the message. 


Thanks for looking.  I'll be the Hero blogger all next week, come check it out!

Enjoy,
Shari
