Bonne Année and Hero Arts Giveaway

Happy New year everyone! Let's hope that the new year brings lots of goodness to us all. I sure enjoyed my holidays but I am ready to return to somewhat of a routine.

Today I want to share with you some of the new Hero Arts rubber that I have been enjoying. This cling set is from the "Art of the Card" line and it is called Paris, France (AC011). Many of you know what a Francophile I am - I love everything French (except the food - it is a bit too rich for my simple tastes)! I have been lucky enough to travel to France a couple of times and I loved every minute of it.

This card is like a scrapbook page with all the small images. I used watercolor paper for the background, which I painted with Niji Pearlescent Watercolors and Perfect Pearls mist. I wish you could see the shimmer! It is mounted on a kraft card and decorated with some great French-themed washi tape and layered with the stamped images (stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Distress Inks). I added a Sparkler Button from Webster Pages and a great glittery Fleur-de-lis which was given to me by my dear pal, Antoinette (she really knows what I love!).

When I said that I wanted to share this with you, I really meant it. I want to kick off the new year by giving this stamp set (a brand new one) to one of you. Thank you all for all your loving support during the year - it has been so great! Just follow my blog and leave a comment here and I will draw a random winner on January 9th. I will send the ANYWHERE, so please join in the fun.

Finally, I am entering this in the Ellen Hutson LLC Hero Arts Cling Make 'n Take. Check it out and play along - you have until January 15th. A photo of the card with the stamp is required, so here it is.

Wishing you all the best for a grand and glorious 2012 - may we all be healthy, have fun, be enriched and prosper! Thanks again for being here - I appreciate each of you.
