Cozy Christmas

Share the Holidays with A Blog Named Hero and all our 2016 Sponsors!

The Crafty Nurse here to celebrate the holidays and share a special thank you to all of our extremely generous 2016 sponsors.  

This is a special celebration with lots of prizes and opportunities to thank both our sponsors and you our loyal Blog Hop participants.  Please leave a comment on one of our posts this month for a chance to win.  For even more opportunity to win, enter a card in the challenge.

Today I've used Ellen Hutson's "Cozy Christmas" by Julie Ebersole.  This is such a timeless set and so great for a quick holiday card. I always like to find different ways to use the stamps so the light string became a frame. I also only used part of the "smoke" to create different puffs out of each house.

Golden Tree

A holiday card challenge, tribute to our fantastic sponsors and lots of great prizes are found on our blog this month.  

My shaker card today uses the lovely coloring layering tree stamped in shades of green and embossed in gold.  Shading around the tree was done with a Zig marker and a little water.  The sequins are some that I received from The Ton when they sponsored us earlier in the year.  The golden paper is from Target's $$ bins and then all mounted on a black base.

As part of our thanks to our sponsors and you, our followers, there are prizes from each of the DT members - just leave a comment on our posts and/or add a card to our holiday challenge - here or in the upper right corner.

Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments.

Hello - I Appreciate You

Hi friends - my very last post for A Blog Named Hero - what an INCREDIBLE journey this has been; thanks for having me!

As my last post, I wanted to combine a few of the companies that have allowed us to use their products this year:

And since I am forever asked to make 'Thank You' cards, that's what I set off to make using 4 different stamp sets, 3 different companies. I was so inspired by THIS card but I don't own any Dr. Ph Martins so I set about making the same sort of card using various distress ink markers sprayed with water. I even added some black details like Eunji has in her card, but mine are hand drawn.

I die cut the HELLO from water color paper, adhered to some white and black card stock for dimension, sponged with distress ink and coated with glossy accents. A black sentiment flag and some simple black/white graphic paper finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by; don't forget, EACH team member is giving away a prize - that's ten prizes up for grab. Leave some love for each and every blog post!
