Hero Arts Week...Day 1

Morning folks....if you are a regular visitor here you will know how much I love my Hero Arts and oh boy all my willpower flew out of the window when I saw the brand new 2011 catalogue...I think this may just be their best collection yet....mind you I have been known to make that statement each and every time they tempt me with new stamps...and if it was left up to me I would have ordered everything but the bank manager suddenly jumped onto my shoulder with his grumpy face on.
So everyday this week I will be sharing a project made with my absolute favourites....

                               Just Saying Hi      Typewriter Letters    Large Canvas Stripe
     Dictionary Greeting  
Distress Inks....Stormy Sky...Brushed Corduroy  
Prima Flowers.....Ribbon and Buttons from stash

A quick and easy gift to make for a friend....and hey it would look great in pink too.
A sneaky peek of what's in store tomorrow....a new trend in cardmaking perhaps....

And look what my lovely buddies gave me for Christmas....I know what you're thinking that was exactly one month ago....can you believe it....but because we were all marooned in December we never got a chance to meet up.
from the lovely and very talented Sewing Queen Anne or as we call her "Stitch Bitch"
and of course my shaggy raggy cushion kit which I am still working on

from the lovely and mega talented Queen of All Things Letraset.... Debbi aka...The Promarker Pro
a Timmie Tastic Apron to wear at my hot date and be warned Mr TH I will be chasing you around the room until you autograph it for me.  
When I mentioned to Debbi that I was tinkering with the idea of buying myself a set of Aqua Markers she kindly lent me her set to have a play.....try before you buy.....COOL

The Promarker Pro..The Stitch Bitch and your very own Hero Arts Tart (moi) are putting our crafty heads together planning what is guaranteed to be a fun new venture which I can't tell you about yet or else we would have to hold you down while Anne stitches your lips watch this space.  Catch up with you all tomorrow.

  1. Loving the notebook Kath - I did look at those stamps and thought "no I wouldn't use them", but.......

    Take care

  2. Thank you for a fun filled demo on Saturday Kath, really enjoyed it and picking up all your tips. Did buy a few of the stamps but think those letter ones would be more than useful - I wonder!!!!!

  3. So don't keep us in suspense, how do you love the pro markers? I keep hearing great things about them being just like the copics but less expensive. Let us know. Love your new stamps.
