The Hero Arts Tart

Morning folks,
hope you're all well.. I'm having a lazy jammie day today I think. Got to make a card for the Sundays with Santa FB group.


Had a fabulous day yesterday, as you know Kath - The Hero Arts Tart (will explain about that later) was demonstrating the new 2011 Hero Arts stamps at the grand re-opening of Simply Create. The new shop is amazing, loads of space, loads of gorgeous stash, what more could you want. I'd like to thank Jacqui for being so tolerant with my kids, they tend to spread out and it's really hard to keep control of them. And if you're reading this Jacqui - Faith tells me that you cut your own finger cos you're daft lol
The only time I could get anywhere near Kath for the crowds was when she stopped to eat her lunch. She had an avid audience, and whe you see the fabulous samples she made, its no wonder. If you want to see her fab samples then keep your eyes peeled this week on her blog as she'll be showcasing them.
I bet you're wondering what I bought, well I could tell you that I was very good and didn't spend anything...... but I'd be lying lol


I've decided that this is my birthday present, Graham is offshore and comes home on the afternoon of my birthday - so there's a pretty good chance that I won't get anything, so I thought I'd just buy my present myself.
Willow has become much more interested in crafting recently and decided she wanted the Braveheart stamp and the dress stamp, and she picked out the silhouette heads for me.
And my hot tip for 2011 - that corrugated kraft card in the background is going to be big news this year !
So are you still waiting for me to explain about the Hero Arts Tart? well, remember I was over visiting Kath and Anne on Friday, well we have some plans - which I can't divulge yet - but as Kath's "thing" is Her Arts stamps, she is now the Hero Arts Tart, Anne who is the whizz at all things sewing is the Stitch Bitch, and apparently I'm the Promarker Pro! - what can I say.

Am just starting to work with some card which I think might be Kraft - like the effect & I've been intrigued by your use of it. Looking forward to your Sundays with Santa.

I have a weakness for HA myself Debbi and gave in and bought the fabulous flourish and friendly flags recently. They are fab. I can't wait to see what you make with them.

You're right, buying yourself your present is the best way to have it match your wishes...
Better be a "Pro" than a "Tart" or a "Bitch"...

Wonderful stamps, love the flourish one. You had me laughing out loud at Hero Arts Tart! I have a Fiskars paper crimper that I think I've only used once or twice, I'll have to dig it out again and get ahead of the curve!
