Caardvarks and Hero Arts together - what a wonderful mix

Hero Arts are the sponsor on Caardvarks at the moment and there has been some amazing Hero Arts artists featured each day.  Today they are featuring Eva and have featured Kelly Rasmussen, Heidi Van Laar, Jenyfur of Caardvarks, Lucy Abrams and Kathy Racoosin to name a few.

The current challenge is to make a "new" card using a digital element on it and the closing date is December 20th.  There are some free digital kits available on 2peas if you would like to give it a try including a number of Hero Arts kits.  Believe me, once you make your first one... you will be hooked!

My card is made using Jane's wonderful monster digital image available here.  I attached him to white cardstock that I put through my Big Shot in the swiss dots embossing folder.  I coloured him with copics/promarkers, added a purple prima flower for "punky" hair!  A touch of purple ribbon from Papermania and one of my fimo buttons with white embroidery floss.  Hey presto!  he is done!

I haven't added a sentiment yet - was thinking of adding a sentiment inside - .... Have a Monster Birthday!!

I am also entering this card into Jane's current challenge - check it out here... she is giving away amazing goodies to the winner.

I didn't post over the weekend as I was a busy girl!!!  I did a craft and card making party on Saturday for a great friend's daughter who was celebrating her 11th Birthday.  We had so much fun - cutting, colouring and "making", just hope the girls enjoyed it as much as I did !! LOL!!!  I did bring along my camera to capture the fun but didn't manage to shoot off any shots. 

Yesterday, the boys helped Grandma and Grandpa to hang the baubles on their tree (which they do each year).  They discovered the had a willing (captive!) audience and so performed their "pieces" for the School Concerts which are on later this week.

Sorry for the very long post.... and thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great Monday.
