Making Samples for the Hero Arts Catalog Preview Party!

Just a quick share of some of the cards I'm working on for tomorrow. The first 2 are the Make n Take cards, with a design and stamps supplied by Hero Arts.....
The bicycles are from the Joy Ride clear set and the background is a great clear set called Dictionary Greetings. It has 4 stamps with definitions for; happy, thank, friend and hello. I love them!
The other card uses the new woodblock Silhouettes trio. The background is a wonderful new Daisy Outline Pattern design block. 
This next card is an almost complete CASE of a card design in the demo kit.  It's designed by Tami Hartley and totally shows off the great Joy Ride clear set.....
I'm entering this card in the Wee Memories Challenge for this week to CASE a card.

And finally this last card is my own design using a Silhouettes stamp and the Daisy Outline Pattern.....
I snuck in a bit of the Thank definition from the Dictionary Greetings set, too!

I'll have pictures from the party to post tomorrow night....I can't wait!

Happy Birthday Andy!! My wonderful son was born 27 years ago today. That was one special Christmas.

I've been enjoying Psalm 33 lately, there is so much to ponder is this short chapter.
~ Psalm 33:4-5 ~
For the word of the Lord holds true,
and we can trust everything He does.
He loves whatever is just and good;
the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.
