It's Hero Arts at Caardvarks!!! Hooray!!!

The current Caardvarks challenge is sponsored by Hero Arts... and the challenge is DIGITAL!!!  I made some cards to showcase a selection of my FAVOURITE Hero Arts digi images!
Firstly, this butterfly.  I love him. (Not sure why I think it's a boy butterfly though...)  I combined him with some digi papers from Michelle Underwood's 'Vintage Holiday Memories' and 'Winter Romance' kits.

Supplies: Digi butterfly, sentiment and notecard - Hero Arts; digi papers - Michelle Underwood (lines, dots); sewing machine; Nesties - Labels 8.
I am sure you all realise that this line of birds is one of my all time favourite images... I mean, how cute can you get. I combined it with the digital 'Polky Dots' stamp printed directly onto a Hero Arts notecard. So simple.

Here, I decided to use more of these adorable owls. I added twill and thread here, stitching the thread to the twill for a bit of a change . :-)

A beautiful group of cards. I am partial to the butterfly card. Did you sew directly to the card front or is that a panel attached to the card? I never know if it is OK to have the stitching show on the inside of the card. Have a fabulous Sunday.
