Be the Change

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments yesterday for my Hero Hostess announcement! I read all the comments on the Hero Arts Blog, too. This may sound a little corny but if I had a quilt with all of your congratulatory sentiments on it, I would want to keep it wrapped around myself for a very long time. Really, you've made me feel so special. I am all smiles!

For this card, I used sketch #3 from the Hero Arts April Contest. I used a couple of new dies I just got, the paper dolls and wonky scallop border, along with new Hero Arts stamps. I finally got my hands on the Graph Background and I used another one of the Hero Arts/Studio Calico releases, Wonderful World. I used the rock 'n' roll stamping technique for the earth and die cut the ring for the sentiment using Spellbinders circle dies.

Now that's a great idea - to wrap yourself in a compliment quilt! We could all use one of those some days :) This card is super neat & sweet - perfect with Earth Day coming up - and I love the way you did the 'earth' stamp (and that paper doll die...ooooooh!)

Oh, cool! That paper doll border is so great! Love the way you created this card, Emily! Very nice!! And I hear about a new crafting idea? A compliment-quilt?! :-D
That would sell huge, I think! Well, you're worth every compliment, for sure!!!!
Hugs, Wendy
