Guess what?  Hero Arts is now selling the (original) MISTI and Mini MISTI!!!  I don't craft without mine!





WHEW!  Now let's get to projects, shall we?  One of my favorite add-on is the darling Love Bandit set!


Perfect, for all ages!  I made a set of cards to send out to some crafty friends!  I'm a big fan of the use of non-traditional colors so I used the Pool Mix Layering Papers.


I used the Heart Infinity Dies to make that guy the star of the show.


This one used both the Nesting Circle and Heart Infinity dies...look at that teeny tiny heart!



That's it for me today...I can't wait to hop around and check out how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Laurie Willison!
