The Heart Desires Blog Hop



I have some SUPER DUPER exciting news today! 

My Friend Ms. Tonya has opened up a new store to sell stamping and papercrafting goodies called The Heart Desires! You will want to check it out because it is gonna be the hottest shop on the block!  I am so excited for her for making her dream a reality! 



Tonya has asked me to be part of her Design Team!  So honored to be part of this, I can't even tell you. As you will soon see, there are some FABULOUS ladies on this DT team.  But before we get to that... I wanted to share that to celebrate this grand opening and introduction of the DT, we are having a blog hop with...ahem... prizes (read on for more info)!

I made two cards for today.  

First, I used Lawn Fawn's Loveable Legends.  Such a cute set and if you know me at all, right up my alley, I adore mysterious fabled creatures.  Bigfoot is my fave, but I really enjoyed coloring this Kraken and even added little suctions to his arms. :)  


For my second card, I used Hello Gorgeous from Hero Arts.  This has great sentiments!  I can't wait to use them all!  In making this, I was going for inner reflection, something ethereal, which is why the shapes decrease as they move inward.  



OK, I bet you are ready to win some prizes right?  Here's how...be sure to hit all the stops on the hop and comment for your chance to win one of multiple $10 gift certificates to The Heart Desires store.  You have until 11:59 PST on Sunday, March 27.  Now... here is that fabulous team I was telling you about:

Katie  
Amy  

Now go get your socks knocked off and get ready to shop in the new store!  Can't wait to see who wins the certificate!

Happy FRIDAY!

Super cute cards!

Kathryn Lorenzini said...

Okay, that KRAKEN?! What? Love that little scene you put together and the whole composition and colors. The tag is perfect. Your photograph makes a lot of difference with the enlightenment card-- and I love your approach. I really hope you play around with this design because it is awesome and really unique. I hope Hero Arts catches wind of how you used the Buddha and sentiment!!! Happy Easter and hope you are well. Hugs!
