I've been swallowed up...

... with so much to do. It's amazing how just when I think I've gotten caught up with my deadlines... something comes my way and I get behind again.

The day I got back from Scrapfest... I had a box of NEW Hero Arts 2012 stamps waiting for me. So my blog went neglected for awhile. Sorry about that!

I was able to squeak in a card for Operation Write Home that was featured on the Hero Blog yesterday for World Card Making Day! I had fun making this one with some camouflage colors which is perfect for soldiers to use to send home. 


I used the Hero Arts digital die cut for the Hanging Ornaments, cut them out first with my Silhouette, then used a stamp positioner to get perfect image alignment.  If you haven't tried this process, it's pretty cool.   The card instructions are HERE and I've included all the supplies below. 

Have a fantabulous week-end...what's left of it!!!

I was just commenting on the HA blog how fabulous I think it is that there are the digi cuts, the sizzix dies and embossing folders and how Hero arts has done the great team ups for stamping and cutting! GREAT thinking.

Stunningly chic! Love the natural colours, and the tone-on-tone background and silk ribbon give such richness.

Really beautiful card...the colors are brilliant! The cut out looks so crisp, so wish I had a digi cutter...I may have to add one to my wish list along with the Hero Arts 2012 stamps!

Love this card, Shari, with the beautiful design! And what a neat idea to use the camo colors for OWH! Hope you get caught up soon, and I also hope you realize just how jealous we all are that you've got your hands on those 2012 stamps!

Sure was nice seeing you at Scrapfest. Thanks for all the laughs - I enjoyed it so much! Hugs! :)
