Creative Explosion with Britta!


I am super excited to be here with Britta this week! We have become great blog friends over the past few months and together, we have a week of creative goodness coming your way!  Britta was so sweet to ask me to blog along with her!  She is such a creative girl and I love reading her posts and watching her videos!  (Especially those hauls!  So fun to see what she buys!)  Here is a little bit about Britta...



Hello there! I'm Britta Swiderski - a cardmaker and scrapper who just happens to be Graphic Design major at the University of Minnesota. I spend my free time inking and making projects, cooking and trying to relax away from class and busy campus life. I've tried pretty much every hobby out there but always seem to gravitate towards paper and all of the amazing things that are possible with it. I'm so excited to be doing this fun week with Laurie and look forward to more teaming up in the future. You can visit my blog over at http://brittaswiderski.com/. Big thanks to Laurie for joining me this week!



We have a theme for every day this week and today's is the Hero Arts set, A Happy Hello!  So here is my card...

This was probably one of my first Hero sets and in setting up this week with Brit, it makes me realize, I just don't have enough HA!  They have some fun stuff for sure!  I colored the little bird with my Prismas and OMS!  The clouds are fun foam I hand cut and then stamped in PTI's Fresh Snow!

And lastly, the grass is green cardstock from DeNami that I hand cut with my Kai's! I added some Twinery Twine for a little more color! 

I am so glad you stopped by today!  If you haven't already, check out Brit's blog to see what she has created with A Happy Hello!  Don't forget to leave her some love!  I think she even has a video to watch! 

Remember to come back tomorrow for another creative explosion with Brit!  And if you have time, don't forgot to play along with the challenge I have open HERE

Hope you have a great Monday!

Stamps: Hero Arts A Happy Hello

You're amazing! This card is so bright and happy, and you're a genius with making your own clouds. I thought you had masked them off and sponged them or something, but this is awesome. Amazing coloring as well! So glad and honored to be sharing this week with you. :)
