SUE had a great post on her blog today......she showed her top favorite cards from the Hero Arts Flickr group. I thought this was a great idea! So get your favorite beverage and get comfortable and let's take a walk down memory lane.
It was so difficult to narrow down this list. Many of my favorites are missing because I couldn't figure out how to get their pictures posted here. Keep in mind that these are my favorites today; tomorrow they'll be different! I am so proud to be part of this amazing group of women! Thanks, ladies, for the constant inspiration!
I could choose 20 of Jacqueline's cards to show you, but this one really touched my heart in so many ways. She stamped over a photograph of wooden shoes planted with pansies.
I love OZ's cards because they always show her sense of fun and they are always beautifully crafted.
Tif's cards are always like a fairy tale brought to life; she often uses beautiful flowers.
Every single one of Donna's cards are a work of art. This one is one of my favorites from the shaped cards challenge. She even has a white picket fence!
Suzanne's card perfectly exemplifies the peace and gentleness that winter can be, and it incorporates music paper.
Marilyn's card is one of my very favorites, and I've used it as a model many times for cards of my own.
This one of Laura's is pure joy to me; it uses a digital image of one of my first Hero stamps, Sketch Tulips.
This card of Kathy's is another one of my all-time favorites; so much so that I did my own version of it.
This card of Sue's is one of the ones that makes me want to drop everything and run out and buy the stamp that is featured.
My Hero Hostess Sista Cathy made this little lovely for the photo challenge, and I can almost smell the lavender!
Trace has her own unique style. This one is one of her earliest cards; it makes me think of a soft worn quilt.
And this one of hers is my model for when I need a masculine card.
This card by Kathy Rosecrans hits all the right notes for me: text, scallops, gingham, flowers.....just a beautiful design.
Here is a gorgeous card by another of my Hero sisters, Sarah. This was just done for the recent blog hop. She used my current favorite stamp and made it sing!
Daria's card is another of my very favorites. The design is so appealing to me, and it uses everyone's favorite Heart Winged Butterfly.
Finally, I think Robin and I were separated at birth :) She and I seem to have the same sensibilities. Here is one of my recent favorites of hers; it has everything I need: pink, brown, hearts and flowers.
Please click on each artist's name to take you to her Flickr photostream, where you will learn more about each card, and can then explore more of her cards in her stream if you'd like.
It's almost the New Year here, so I'll close for tonight, but will be back tomorrow to post another of Sue's ideas, a look at my favorites of my own cards from before this blog was born. Happy New Year, everybody!!
