good times...


The other day I came home to this fun happy mail from Hero Arts:


I played with the Paper Cottage Stamps for today...the neons are coming tomorrow:)


Here's a real simple card...


I had to use that sweet coffee mug:)

Perfect for the current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero:



Up until this year...it seemed like my go-to card base was kraft....this year I've been smitten by white card bases {thanks sherry}, so this was a true challenge for me..

I haven't played along over at Hero Arts so I thought this month's challenge was perfect for my card:



We're back to our glorious Seattle weather...mid-low 70's....yahoo!
