Lovin' these stamps...

Since I first saw these sentiment stamps on Jennifer McGuire's blog I knew I had to have them, and now, here they are...

HERO ARTS Caption Messages

and HERO ARTS Essential Messages

I used one of the stamps from the Essential Messages set today, while making a quick card for one of our suppliers. She was most impressed with her card, and more than that, YG was impressed that I "knew when to stop" on this card...

CS is Curious Metals Ivory, which has been embossed with ProvoCraft's Rough Diamond embossing folder and trimmed with Creative Memories Corner Rounder punch. The scrapbook paper has been edged with VersaMagic Ocean Depth ink, and the word stamped with Versafine Black Onyx. I pierced a tiny hole in the scrapbook paper to thread the stalk of the flower through to the underside of the paper, and added DS tape to hold the stalk in place.

The butterfly is ProvoCraft's Cut & Emboss Butterfly set, which has also been edged with the VersaMagic Ocean Depth ink, and then lightly stickled with Blue Distress Stickles.

Shortly after arriving at the birthday girl's office, one of her colleagues came over and showered her with balloons, which is why you can see some balloons peeking out in the background.
