Paperplay Challenge - Parlez Vous?

Happy Saturday!.  This week's Paperplay Challenge is to use a language other than English on your card.  I made a card with a Hungarian Greeting on it.  Can you guess what it says?

Supplies - Hero Arts Friends Clings, CK Ali's handwriting font,
PP - Cosmo Cricket, wooden heart, misc. gem stone  and embroidery floss

This is a new Friends Clings set from Hero Arts that I just opened and used for the first time - I love it!.  Did some paper piecing, machine stitching, added some bling and a wooden heart.  The font is Ali Edwards font from Creating Keepsakes (link to free download above).  I printed it in Word and then free handed it on to the card.  The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket.  Thanks for visiting and the card says "I love you"!.  Have a great weekend.

Hands Up!

Made these snowmen for the Hero Arts Simple Holiday Challenge this week.  The idea has been rattling around in my head for a few days and I knew I needed to get them made. 

I propped them up against some Cosmo Cricket cardstock - don't they look like they are in a line up!
and below they are standing up on their own.

Supplies: Hero Arts Share the Joy, promarkers and white pearls coloured
with a black sharpie
I think they will make terrific "mini" cards for the holidays to add to gifts.  They could also be coloured with watercolours, colouring pencils or paper pieced - the possibilities are endless but I had to stick with "simple holiday" for this challenge. Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments.  Happy Friday  ♥.
