Zig Zag Hello & Happy News!

Hi Everyone!

Are you all having a wonderful Friday?  I’m so glad the weekend is almost here!

Last night before going to bed I got some really happy news – I’m a lucky Fab Five Winner over on the Hero Arts blog for the January challenge!! Yay!  I was sooo excited when my sweet friend Joy told me.  I pretty much dropped everything and went straight online to see!  It definitely made the rest of my night and I’m so honoured to have been selected along with some other amazing designers and their gorgeous cards.  You can check out the post here.

Also yesterday I was excited to come home and find my big Hero Arts order from Simon Says Stamp waiting for me on my door step!  I had ordered it before Christmas but it was held back waiting for some pre-order items to be released, so I couldn’t wait to open it up and get inky!

With my yummy new stamps I created a card for Hero Arts’ new February challenge – Friendship & Hello Cards.

Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps (Zig Zag (CG422) & Untitled Love (AC004)), Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Ink (Butter Bar (AF207) & Wet Cement (AF213)), Hero Arts: Hero Hues Folded Cards (Snow), Hero Arts: Hero Hues Designer Twine, Hero Arts: Hero Hues Dots (Sunshine) and Yellow Button.

I fell in love with this Zig Zag Cling Stamp the moment I saw it and knew I just had to get it.  It’s such a fun background stamp and I can definitely see myself using it over and over again.  I already made a number of cards last night using it! Lol!

Well that’s it for me today, I’m off to grab some lunch and catch up on some blog reading/commenting.

Enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend!

    Congrats on your win! That’s so awesome, Simone! And I adore this card. Gray, yellow and white is one of my most favorite color combos. And I love the chevron stripes!
