Think Pink - Hero Arts Style

Pink Card for Hero Arts Challenge and 2Peas Weekly Sketch
(p.s. I have not posted my Mothers' Day card yet -
it looks related, but I know my mom reads my blog - Hi mom!)


This week's challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog
is to create a Pink card to be sent to a very special place (Gilda's Club) that offers services for people and families affected by cancer. We were also given another challenge, to decorate our envelope as well. So, above are my creations! This was a fun and meaningful challenge to participate in. We are all affected by Cancer, and we have all seen what it does to those we love. I also incorporated this week's sketch over at the 2peas stamping board. Godelieve is this week's hostess, one of my favorite artists and teachers!

I have to say, the folks at Hero Arts are definitely my new favorite 'peeps' to learn from, watch and learn about! The blog is hands down a great learning environment, and the other challenge posters are all having fun chatting together and sharing ideas over at Flicker. Last week we found out how Hero Arts started - by a mother, who shared her creativity with her children! I just love a mom who fosters creativity in her children (big wave to Auntie Alice! Don't you have a birthday coming up???)....

And, her son is now the CEO, and the plant is green! As in, lots of environmentally sound practices are used and employed.

OH, and the designers? Hilarious! Talented! And so darn real! The type of people you just think would be cozy hanging out with you - I think the best way to describe them is 'down to earth'! (Just take a peek at today's video - shot in PJ's!)...

As an aside, since I grew up in the Bay Area, it just so happened that my first stamp was a Hero Arts Stamp, and is one of the oldest so far to make an appearance at last weeks challenge (not sure if that is good - or bad)!

Thanks for listening to my rambles.
