{ Hero Arts sketch challenge }

Hero Arts is doing another sketch challenge this week, with sketches and wonderful ideas daily. Kelly Goree is a guest designer. Check out her blog, she is giving away some awesome goodies, including Bittersweet collection from Basic Grey. This first card is for Monday sketch. Romani is one of my favorite Basic Grey collections and then Euphoria...I combined those two for this card. Hero Arts stamps, Sizzix die cut tags and I stamped the little bird and the butterfly on them. Flowers are Prima and Luxe Designs label, Basic Grey brad, Prima red jewel and Imaginisce glitter brad.

Second card is for Tuesday sketch. Urban Prairie patterned paper from Basic Grey and Basic Grey brads. Hero Arts stamps, Hero Arts jewels and clear buttons. I stamped the buttons with a little tree from Hero Arts stamp set. Prismacolor pencils, Gelly Roll pen by Sakura, Maya Road office sheer, Bazzill strip, American Crafts letter stickers. I embossed the background with Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the embossed part with red ink (hard to tell in this photo). I love that Basic Grey paper has a white core. Did I ever tell you that Alex is walking! I know I mentioned that he was taking his first steps last month...but now he is walking at 11 months. He is so cute. At times he looks like a little zombie trying to balance. He loves to walk drinking out of his Nuby sippy cup with a pop up straw. We went to the playground last Saturday and he had a blast.


  1. Oh, how exciting that Alex is walking! Thanks for sharing those sweet photos, Daniela! He is such a little cutie. I think he looks so much like you!
    Your cards are beautiful! I think it's so fun that HA and BG is playing together with this. I wish I had more time to just play! Still, I hope I can pop over there and check out the sketches and designs.

  2. Absolutely FABULOUS work Daniela!! I always ♥love♥ your cards ;)
