Hi everyone! I’m back for another blog week — and I’m hoping to make this one extra FUN, especially for all the KIDS out there!
Usually we show a project or two first, and then give you the weekly challenge — but I thought it would be easier if I told you the challenge first this time. Here it is: I am challenging you to gather up some fun stamping supplies and share them with a kid — of any age. Have them stamp something using at least one Hero Arts stamp, then post it on the Hero Arts Flickr Group by Sunday, July 13th at 11:59 PM PST and tag it with the word “kids”. Be sure to include the age group in the description:
- 5 and younger
- 13 and older
A winner from each age group will receive a $25 shopping spree and the 2008 Catalog! It’s okay for you to help the younger stampers — just add a note so we know who did what. Can’t wait to see what the kids come up with! If you don’t have kids, or your kids don’t want to stamp, maybe you can “borrow” a friend’s! Neighbors, nephews, nieces, grandkids — the list goes on!
Over the week you’ll get to meet all of my talented young helpers. To help me start things off, here’s my friend Nora and her daughter Dominique! Dominique always has a big smile on her face.
She had LOTS of fun stamping the Big Owl and playing with GLITTER
Nora had fun too — that’s her “disco owl” on the right
Nora used to live a few blocks over from me, but now she lives in Canada. So, I had to join the glitter + owl fun long distance. Miss you two.
I made this card for my sister Chris since today is her birthday. SURPRISE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS! Love ya!
Here’s a watch-in-a-minute video with lots of glitter tips — including how to get it back in the jar. (Please excuse my voice, I am recovering from a nasty evil cold.)
I love making cards where a part of it hangs off the edge. I made the card base a little smaller so that it still fits in an envelope. Love that Big Owl. Love that glue pen + glitter, too!

I just know that Nora and Dominique would love to hear from you. You can leave them a comment in French or English — Dominique speaks both!
