Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader - selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes Sunday, February 12th at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the  following week.


Here's the card that I made especially for today's hop:


I worked with the main kit today.  I've always gravitated towards rain, rainbows, umbrellas....it's probably because I live in Washington State.  Although truthfully, as I type up this post it is snowing like crazy.  I knew that I wanted to use that girl with the umbrella and color her with a yellow raincoat and yellow rain boots.  The orange umbrella pops with the Pool Mixed Layering Paper panel, doesn't it?


The sequin mix is from an earlier My Monthly Hero kit but psssstttt....in the new catalog there are some sequin mixes!  They will be available in the Hero Arts store on February 14th!

In case you missed the Countdown to Creativity post from Saturday, I also shared this card on the Hero Arts Blog:


I love how the ombre rain showers turned out and who can resist a rainbow of umbrellas?!

Isn't the February kit FABulous?!  Remember to pick up your kit TODAY because when it's gone, it's gone!

Next up is the wonderful Clare Prezzia!

In case you get lost along the way, here is the full hop listing:

Debbie A. said…
Great cards, Amy! I especially like the one about dancing in the rain. I first became familiar with that saying when I had cancer and was going through chemo. I had a T-shirt that said "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." So the expression on that stamp has a special place in my heart. Thanks so much for sharing.

Always, always loved rain! Bought the kit with a smile at the images!
