New Hero Arts Sets!

Hello all,

I've gotten two new sets of Hero Arts stamps this week. This is one of the cards I've made with the new stamps and the newest set of Basic Grey papers that are out for Valentines Day.

Lately I've been stumped artistically - hopefully these bright colors and flowers are helping the flow.

This is James Hunter!


I enjoyed two bands at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, on Tuesday night.

The opener was Ryan Shaw - he's a hot, young R&B singer with an amazing voice and great stage personality.

The headliner was The James Hunter Band. James sounds like Sam Cooke when he sings and sounds like the chimney sweep from Mary Poppins when he talks. His band is tight and the music is wonderful. Check out his site for a listen at

Birthday Gift Certificate Holder

I had a birthday gift for a friend but it didn't arrive on time - so I made a holder for the announcement of the gift.

I used a Club Scrap sparkly paper for the base and added patterened paper for the decoration. I guessed at the folds - and it worked great to house the 8 1/2 x 11 paper that was on the inside.

I added square punched layers for the accent and cut a slot just below the bottom scallops so it could close.
