The challenge this month at A Blog Named Hero is "New to Me" - and just about everything on my card is new.  

First I colored the floral heart from my new January My Monthly Hero kit  with my new Altenew alcohol markers (crazy easy to use).  Die cut the background with my new HA confetti heart die - once in white and once on a piece of gold with Stick-It on the back so I could get those little gold hearts in place easily.  The large gold heart was cut with my new HA infinity heart dies.  I love to make valentines to send to those I love - but I think I kind of went overboard on the new heart stuff this month:)

I am entering this in a few challenges - Darnell's NBUS (never been used), CAS on Sunday (hearts), and the Paper Players (flowers).

Thanks for visiting today.



  1. Another beautiful card, Betty.... love all the small hearts you added

  2. Just love all your hearts, Betty! So brilliant to pop a few of the gold hearts into the white confetti heart background!!

  3. Oh my goodness--this is a wowzer, Betty! Boy do I wish we lived close so we could share goodies & I could soak up inspiration from you! That rose heart is so beautiful & I love how you used gold for the accent! Would you believe I've had Stick-It over a year & the package is unopened?!
