Sweet Nancy

Hello, my friends! I have a special post today about my sweet friend, Nancy. I have had the pleasure of meeting Nancy through the Hero Arts flickr group and I feel blessed to call her a friend. (Be sure to check out Nancy's BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM for more of her awesome creations!!) Well, the other night I was looking through the cards in the group and I came across this card of Nancy's:Is your jaw still on the floor?? Mine is! This card is one of my all-time favs! Nancy has done an incredible job coloring the flowers. I love the soft, sweet tones she has used. The touch of lace is PERFECT. I also love the way she has added the sentiment. Seriously, I just can't get over how pretty this is!!
So after seeing this card of Nancy's I was inspired to create this set for my next class at my LSS. All three cards feature Hero Arts stamps and Distress Inks.

Thanks for popping by! See you tomorrow with our next featured stamper!
Card #1: CL380, CG118, K5344, CG170
Card #2: E5388, CG125, CL272
Card #3: S5316, CL380

The first card is a real stunner!!! Did you do some marker coloring and sprayed the stamp with water? It looks like but I might be wrong... Anyway, The other two cards are so simple and beautiful at the same time! Great job, my friend!
