You're the Best!

For the Hero Arts blog hop, I helped my friend Karen upload her photos onto her Flickr photostream so hoppers could visit her there and see her wonderful creations.

Since she lives in Michigan, with the time difference in Hawaii, we were on the phone until the wee hours of the morning (for her), having a lot of fun trying to put a mosaic together. It was a successful tutoring session and blog hop, and now Karen knows how to link....Yay!

A few days ago, Karen sent me this new stamp set from Hero Arts. I love that it comes with a sentiment and gems.


I made this card by stamping two girls and giving them different hair colors. I also used black gems for the eyes and a white gel pen to put a sparkle in their eyes.

The stamp is a cutie, and I know I'll be using her many times over. Thank you, Karen! You're the best!



Stamp: You're the Best
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Copic markers, Hero Arts gemstones, sheer dot ribbon,
