A Valentine

   Just a little design for my teen kids. I have to say I'm still enjoying the neon trend and I wasn't keen on it to begin with! I was inspired by the watercolor beauties over on the Hero Arts blog today, and this little floating heart stamp is one of my Hero favorites. I used my highlighter pens to give it some pizazz, and I am quite happy with the bright results!
   Hope you have some fun today!

Having a Little Fun

   I've been trying to catch up for a while now, and one of the things on my list was to create for the Moxie Fab World challenges which end today! I hope you've have a chance to play too. I've made a little somethin' somethin' for my husband on his way home from work as I post this!
   Since it's all part of catching up, I have combined the four challenges into one card: Use 10 Different Embellishments; Make a Card with a Window; Make Your Own Background Paper;  Stamp with Your Own Homemade Stamp and Make an Itty Bitty Card. Punched hearts--check; Heart Window--check; Zig Zag background paper stamped--check; and one of my favorite items around the house as a stamp--check; all on a 3"x 3" card--done!
   Do follow the links for some Fabulous inspirational ideas and see how others are putting their own stamp on life! 

Hero He[Arts] Monthly Challenge

   Here is a little Valentine I made for our piano teacher. I think it has a lovely masculine quality, and I am inspired to use this Hero Arts harlequin heart stamp in some other ways to send more love out to my friends and family. Good thing Hero is sponsoring a contest with this theme! Do check it out for yourself and put a love stamp on your life soon!
   *Although it doesn't show well in this photo, I used some Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink on the cream colored musical heart, and I stamped in black on gold metallic cardstock for the embellishment hearts! It spahkles in the nicest, sheeny way!
