Celebration Cards

Hello Everyone, It has been a few days that I have posted any cards. I made a few cards for the second half of the Hero Arts challenge about a week ago and this is the first chance that I have had to post my cards. At the moment I am in Ohio visiting family and enjoying every minute of it. It is a joy to spend time with my grandchildren, too. It is spring break for my oldest grandson so I am able to spend more time with him, too. Here are some of the cards that I am entering in the HA Flickr group challenge. I seem to use the Birthday Messages (CL139) sentiment often, it always seems to go perfect with most of the cards that I make. The other stamp sets that I used are: Flowing Flowers CG146 and LusciousFrames CL509. To make the panel look like windows, I scored the paper horizontal and verticle and then stamped over the scored lines with a navy blue momento ink.
Birthday Wishes

The stamps that I used for A Day To Celebrate card are Hero Arts: With Sympathy CL476 and Birthday Messages CL139. The background paper is from Websters Pages; Petite Papers.

A Day To Celebrate

The Hero Arts stamps used for Butterfly and Grass are: Feathered Grass CL282, Friend Definition CG125, Antique Engraving CL383, and Envelope Pattern S5507. This card is an inspiration from Shari Carroll. To see her video, please check here. The distress inks used are: Tea Dye, Dried Marigold, Crushed Olive, and Faded Jeans.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and God bless everyone.
