Combining challenges - A Moxie/Hero Day

I have to start combining challenges if I want to play in them all (and I do, I really do!)

The first challenge is from a new blog - A Blog Named Hero. I love Hero Arts - when I started stamping in 2006, many of my first stamps came from this company. And many of my favourites that I've held onto all this time are Hero Arts stamps.

This challenge asks us to use our favourite Hero Arts stamp. My all time favourite HA stamp is the one I used in this card (and many, many others!):


But, as you can see, this is an old card and we need to make new ones for this (and every!) challenge.

The other challenge is this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab world - Sweet Surprise



This just screams for a baby boy card, in my opinion, and my favourite baby sentiment stamp is a Hero Arts stamp - Perfect!

Here's my card:


I embossed the background in white (click to enlarge the photo) and then stamped some gingham using another background stamp.

This reminds me of St. Andrew's cross - perfect for a wee Scottish lad. Now I just need to find one....


Supplies:
Stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment), PTI (gingham), ? background
Paper: Whisper White, Marina Mist
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Stickles, oval dies

Again, amazing. I had to click to enlarge - I could not believe that gingham was not a ribbon!

Beautiful! I really love giving people your cards...they are truly unique. I'll need to restock my "Birthday" selection next time you come to town. Also, just found out a friend of mine is pregnant, so I'll need to pick up one for her too. So glad you're in this business! :)
