I've been busy this week

Hello Everyone,

I haven’t been around much this week to the Hero Arts Flickr group and I also haven’t put anything new up on my blog. I feel like I am behind in everything and time seems to have slipped away from me. So, this post will be long. I have spent this week preparing for a visit with family. Next week will be just as busy and I probably won’t have much time to make any cards. But, I did manage to squeeze in a few cards (this week) and get them posted.

This card was made for the HA flickr Group challenge (november2010B) and I am also entering it into the Holiday Thinking Inking challenge over at Two Peas (week 7). The stamps that I used are Hero Arts; Starry Sky S5448, Good Cheer Messages LL260, and Holiday Sayings CL343. I used the starry sky stamp for the background and I stamped it twice in Chipped sapphire distress ink. To see how this technique is done, check here.

This card is for the HA flickr group challenge and for the Holiday Thinking Inking Challenge over at Two Peas (week 7). See the technique here. Stamps used are Hero Arts; Cuckoo CL388, Holiday Sayings CL343.

This is a simple Christmas card where I used a simple embossing technique on the blue panel. (The embossing on the panel is hard to see in the picture, it is much better in real life.) The stamps used are Hero Arts; Merry Christmas Tree CL459 and Magical Background CG211.

This Card is for the HA Flickr group challenge november2010B. Stamps used are Hero Arts; Create Your Own CL368. The only inking technique on this card was stamping the snowman and coloring him in.

I made this card for the Holiday Thinking Inking class (week 7) (Two Peas) and also for the HA Flickr group challenge (november2010B). To see how the technique is done, please check here. The stamps that are used are Hero Arts; Flourish Pine S5247, Joyous Wishes AR160, Holiday Sayings CL343.

Thank you for stopping by and I do appreciate the comments. Have a wonderful day and a Blessed Thanksgiving.

My my you have been very busy Sue, your cards are lovely I especially like the blue simple Christmas car, which is odd for me as I do not often do simple myself.
It is coming up to that hectic time of year for most people do pace yourself and keep well
