Eres Fabulosa Note Card

A lot of the stamp companies are offering monthly craft kits, limited edition items. They offer subscriptions (you don’t know what is coming to you until the products are revealed), or you can try to buy one of the sets on your own (it may go out of stock, if it is popular). I am not the target customer for monthly kits – LOL – I don’t have that much disposable income!

I have only purchased one or two of these monthly kits.

But, this month (April 2018), the Hero Arts My Monthly Kit was a MUST HAVE for me. The fiesta theme is so cute! The image above is from an add on set, called Shake Your Bones. A set full of Dia de los Muertos images!!

I scrambled to make this card Friday morning, and get it photographed before I gave it to Offspring3.

The sentiment means “you are fabulous”. This character is a version of La Calavera Catrina.

And…I don’t normally take my photos in direct sunlight. But, I was impatient, and I truly wanted PROOF that we had direct sunlight! Friday and Saturday were gorgeous sunny days. We are back to chilly & wet weather.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, inks – Copics BG18, R29, Y18, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Hero Arts (dancer), My Favorite Things (stitched rounded rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

Lorenzo No Prob-Llama Card

This is Lorenzo the Llama, he is from Technique Tuesday. He has lots of great sentiments! I thought I would keep it clean and simple for my first Lorenzo card.

At one point in my youth, we lived in a neighborhood that was in the middle of farmland. A neighbor owned two llamas and kept them at one of the farms. I would go observe, but I never got close enough to get spit upon!
