Succulent Wishes

Hi everyone! Yippee, it's the first Monday of the month!!! This means Hero Arts has a new My Monthly Hero kit launching today! This time it was created in collaboration with the very sweet and talented Kathy Racoosin! Have you seen this woman color? She is AMAZING. I spend a large chunk of my time working on these kits, and it's been a pleasure to work with Kathy on this one. And oh my word the kit is so much FUN!! I absolutely love succulents, but I kill them when I try to grow them myself. So I'm thrilled to be able to stick to paper and ink with these. For today's card, I planted my paper succulents in a coffee mug!

The coffee mug was cut on my Silhouette. I just did a bit of editing to remove the cut design on the mug. Instead I used one of the wee stamps from the kit to add a little pattern to the mug.

There are several fabulous friends sharing today, visit them all for kit inspiration!

And if you'd like to grab a kit for yourself, I highly recommend you head over to the Hero Arts website immediately, as I think they may go quickly.

Thanks for stopping by!
