Sunny Sunday

Hey Everyone! I just love Jennifer's idea to stamp an image and use the reverse side! So I used this peacock stamp, cut off his feathers, turned him over and made him a whole new kind of birdie! Fun, fun!

I also used the tree stamp from my previous post and just cut it down to make the right size trunk for my button tree.

Thank you to everyone who joined in on the I {HEART} HERO ARTS BLOG HOP! It was a total success. I don't know about you but I'm still hoping! I check out a few cards, change a diaper, check out a few more, feed a kid, check out a few more... Most of the time when I'm browsing through blogs I'm holding Rachel in one hand and clicking and typing with the other. But I will get to them all! You all are awesome! Special thanks to Lisa Spangler, Laura Vegas and Jennifer McGuire for joining! You rock!
