my secret santa. . . .

from the Hero Arts Flickr group, Dasa, sent my a very nice Hero Arts clear stamp set that I did not have:



I need some thank you cards, so here is the first one I made using two of the stamps in the set:


I love this pretty scalloped frame.  I colored the flower and leaves with markers and then cut the image out with a circle die.  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Little Black Dress 6 x 6 pad and the embossing folder is Anna Griffin.

Here is one more card I made in a similar manner:




This is a very nice stamp set and I will be using it a lot.  Thank you, Dasa!
