Hi Everyone!  I have a little goody to share with you today.  I was asked by Judith of Jay Gee's Nook down in Australia to be a guest designer and create a card as part of her monthly challenge.  Take a look at the gorgeous inspiration photo.... gahhh.... it's just screaming Shari COLORS!!!

Yummy Right?

Here's what I came up with....


I had left over frames from cutting out Tim Holtz tags, thought I'd use them as a window.  It worked out pretty good! I just white embossed the Life Of the Party Dots by Basic Grey.  Then I stamped the Old Letter Writing on some acetate with Cotton White StazOn and stuck it to the inside of the frame. 


The Pod Sprigs is a Hero Arts Silhouette Cut, back in the day it was one of my favorite stamps.

Along with me sharing a guest spot, a little birdy told me Judith will be having a Hero Arts give-away for some lucky person down in OZ.  Go check out Jay Gee's Nook and see what the other designers have come up with. Anyone can join the challenge, and If you're an Aussie don't forget to have a look around the store

Enjoy your day!!!

Shari, it is just beautiful! You are such an inspiration to me. I just saw the video posted for HA with your layered canvas and I was wondering if you could post a picture and directions on your blog. Thank you again. Take care! Kim T.
