Here’s a project that uses the July My Monthly Hero kit:
I went with a retro look with the soft aqua and soft pink colors.  I absolutely love the sentiment’s play on words.   I’m definitely a Clean + Simple card designer at heart, all that white space makes me a happy crafter.

I also whipped up a card using the CM295 Hay Party Animals set:
Those guys crack me up!  I am loving the CG747 County Fair Bold Prints!  I used a layer of vellum in between the animals and the County Fair panel so that there was a softer panel underneath the animals.

In case you missed it, I had a Countdown to Creativity post up on the Hero Arts Blog:

  1. Sweet cards! I love the farm animal card – adorable.
    And I love the very soft palette of the first card, too.

  2. I love the aqua & pink you chose. Very retro & very beautiful! The animals are too cute. I'm enamored with the lil piglets.❀ Great cards!!

  3. I love the party animals. The grand-kids show their critters at the county fair. This is perfect for them.

  4. What pretty cards. Love your colors – the soft aqua is a suprising choice, but really beautiful.

  5. Love your simple cards and the color theme. I am always compelled to color it all. It’s great top see how well just two colors work.

  6. I first card is elegant and beautiful but I love the Hay Party Animals card! I can't help but laugh looking at it and that's always a good thing…. laughter IS the best medicine πŸ™‚

  7. AWWWW! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE these cards! I LOVE the soft pastel colors that you have used for each of the cards! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! And the Hay Party Animals card is just so PRECIOUS!

  8. All these cards are so beautiful and so different! I can't pick one over the other. Nice way to go out with a bang. We'll miss you at the HA releases, but we still know where to find you! πŸ™‚

  9. As an oldie(but a goodie) this kit is a memory come true. I can't ride all those wild rides except maybe the merry-go-round, but I sure do remember summers that I did ride them over and over again. The airplane with the banner gave me and idea I would use when giving this card and that is to have the plane puff out Morse Code. Since most people my age would know what it means and then it would give kids the opportunity to look it up on their computer. – …. .- -. -.- …

  10. Your cards captured the sweetness of this kit. I adore pastels and you made it work so well in your card!

  11. Oh wow your cards are so awesome! I especially like the party animals one with all the animals stacked up. Super cute!

  12. I was taken by the way you used the soft colors for the Fair card…..soft and sweet….thank you so much.
