Be Inspired... Day 1

I love the Hero Arts artists, so thought it might be nice if I showcased some of my recent favourite HA artists' cards and made my own versions of their cards. :)
Jennifer McGuire is incredible - we all love her, don't we.  THIS card set is so so so beautiful, and I used it as inspiration for the card below - made for a very sweet person.
Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts and PTI; PP - PTI and Bo Bunny; Labels 1 Nesties; Cardstock - Bazzill; Pearls - Hero Arts.; Buttons - various; twine - PTI.
I love the way she used one of the flower images from THIS gorgeous cling set to make the leaves.  As my colouring skills are not up to her incredible standards, I stamped on patterned paper instead.  The sentiment I used is my all time favourite stamp (and a gift from a lovely lovely friend.)
Thanks Jennifer for the daily inspiration.
Next up... Tami Hartley... :)

And... the winner of my SRM giveaway:
LauraB.
Email me Laura and I'll send you your stickers. :)

Finally - my HAPPY news... I was chosen to be on the My Cute Stamps design team. I'm so thrilled.  Check out their GORGEOUS stamps HERE and Holly's beautiful blog HERE.  Such an honour.  Thank you. x
