Inspired by...Heather Maria!!

I am so excited to announce our next inspirational stamper for this week. (I just couldn't wait until Saturday!). Her cards are always cute and well designed! Whenever I look through her photostream on flickr, I am always inspired and ready to get crafting! :) Introducing...Heather Maria! I know you will enjoy seeing a sample of her cards this week.

Here is today's inspirational card by Heather:

I love the pretty pastel kite. Aren't those hearts the perfect touch for the tail of the kite?! I love the texture of the white scallop layered on the white background paper. Finally, Heather embossed the white cardstock to look like gusts of wind! So clever!

Here is my take on Heather's card:

This is one of my favorites of Heather's, too, and I like how you have captured the movement with your background swirl in the sky.

Thank you so much Jill for featuring me this week on your blog!I can't wait to see which cards you've picked and your creations.

I love, love your card today. The swirls and positioning of the hot air balloon really makes it look like it is being carried away by the wind. I love the beautiful colours and the torn hill looks brilliant. Thanks again Jill and looking forward to seeing what you come up with tomorrow!
