Happy Monday!

Hi there!  What a gorgeous Monday!  Even though I've got a ton of stuff to get done inside, I just could help but get out for a little while today.  We played in the sand, rode bikes and went to Library... now 2 of the 3 kiddos are sleeping peacefully. :)

I'm so excited to be hosting the Hero Arts Blog this week.  All of the cards I'll be sharing this week use punches in some fun ways.  There is also a new contest theme up for May....check it out here.

Since I'm focusing on punches this week, I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you.  I just LOVE EK Success punches.  They have great designs and seem to punch though thicker paper than other punches I have.

Corner Chomper (I have Jennifer to thank for this one...she's such a good enabler) ;)

This list could go on and on, but those are some of my favorites right now.

And since it just doesn't feel right to post without sharing a card...here is one that I created a while back.  The sentiment is from this must have set from Hero Arts.  And the border punch used is another one of my favs (it's this one...and is a great price too).


I'll be back on Wednesday with a new challenge at Caardvarks.
Have a great day!
Kelly

wow, I am impressed at all you did in a day! sand, bikes, library... the sheer number of times I have to buckle 3 kids in and out of carseats is enough to exhaust me! haha! :) Love having you on the blog this week! You are so talented. Blessings to you and your family!
