My Hero

I think we all have someone that we turn to for inspiration, help when we have lost our mojo and generally think WOW when we see what they have created. Well one of the people that always wow me is Kath. She uses lots of products, different stamps and amazing techniques and some time ago I fell in love with one her cards. It was a card that I knew I must case but you know how that thing called 'time' just passes by, it takes me ages to do the things that I want to do but as it was a fellow crafter, friend and neighbours birthday coming up I thought ohhh, Sandra would love this card and so I started. It took hours to get the embossing right and I can tell you, lots ended up in the re-use pile, then the colouring (that was fun) and as I really am trying not to put inserts inside the card, I decorated the inside too.




I just love what I created, well worth the time and effort. This was using Stampin' Up! bashful blue and I hope to do something similar in a pinky colour soon.

I am sure that you have stumbled across Kath's blog on your travels and if you havent, let me introduce you to her fantastic creations HERE . This is the card that I cased

Thanks for having a read this morning and I hope you have a lovely Monday
