As soon as I saw the rather sad Instagram post by Hero Arts today, I decided to make a card to reflect how I feel about the company that got me into this wonderful world of cardmaking! Its leaders seem to try to balance business and kindness/generosity/transparency – all admirable traits. But quite honestly, it has always been about the quality of their products and amazing designs for me.
Anyway, I fell in love with the My Monthly Hero September 2018 kit as soon as I saw it! I have been stalking the website for a while – I couldn’t believe that it hadn’t sold out and I finally snapped one up last month. While it is clearly an autumn set, I decided to repurpose it for spring, inspired by the fabulous Color Throwdown challenge colour palette (purple, yellow, green and grey). I turned a couple of sprigs into two beautiful yellow spring shrubs, kerria and forsythia which was actually the easiest part of the card! Everything else seemed to go wrong – even stamping the sentiment! But I got there in the end!
Thanks for stopping by!
