Saying Good-bye for now...

Hello friends, I am sad to say that this is going to be my last post as a part of the From The Heart Stamps Design Team, we will be moving cross country from SC to AZ on July 31st and there is so much to do I was not sure if I could keep up with my responsibilities and thought best to step down for now and hope to be back on the team one day in the future.  I want to say a big THANK-YOU to Faith and the team who are so awesome to work with!  Now on to the new challenge you can do the sketch or the twist( your favorite technique), I have done the sketch.  This little guy was July's Stamp of The Month.   Everyone who plays along will receive a $1 voucher to the FTHS shop and one lucky person will receive a $5 voucher.   Check out the cute freebie in the store here..

Tweet Birthday Wishes


Morning friends, it is time for a new challenge at From the heart stamps.  This weeks twist is to use a charm.  You can do the sketch, the twist or both.  Today I am using Birdie Balloon colored with copic markers and the paper is from The Paper Studios- I didn't have a charm that would work but I did have a little clip (good enough, right?).  Everyone who plays along will receive a $1 voucher to the FTHS shop and one lucky person will receive a $5 voucher.  You MUST use a FTHS image.
