Mexican fiesta, please, no vintage frills...

I've always told people that I don't like making cards because they never turn out nice. I've tried many times to copy some of the amazing cardmakers I know and make just as beautiful cards as them, but it didn't work. I was a photo scrapbooker at heart.

That was until it suddenly dawned on me, after watching Nichol Spohr, Kelly Latevola and Tina Smith (and many, many more) on youtube, that I can't make beautiful, frilly vintage cards like my cardmaking friends do, because I'm not a frilly, vintage person. Who knew! So I ordered a couple of stamp sets and BOOM, I am now a card maker! (I still make regular scrapbook pages as well, of course.

How things can change...

So I have been making cards non-stop the last few weeks and I am truly enjoing it (not sure if my husband has enjoyed it quite as much.)

This weekend I got my first happy mail from My Monthly Hero, so it's been mexican fiesta all weekend in my Craft room. Here are the first two Cards I made using the kit. I made another five cards using the kit this weekend. Truly inspired.

Both cards are colored with copic markers and the top one has a background using the reactable ink cubes from Hero Arts included in the kit. So much fun! I'm submitting the first card in A blog named Hero's "Put a flower on it"-challenge.

Wish you all a spicy monday!
