Every day hero- Global design project

Welcome to Tailored craftiness this morning!
Everyone has every day hero's in their lives-I've blogged about some earlier this year, people who have been their for you when you needed their support. I Love to give those people the recognition they deserve-its always very much appreciated to have people like that in our lives isn't it?

Todays Global design project challenge is a sketch-I'm a huge lover of sketch challenges as you know, and todays is no different.
Make sure you pop on over to the Global design project
 blog to check out all the
amazing designers samples of this sketch

 Here is my version based on the sketch-I was inspired by that faint heart background in the sketch to use Stampin' Ups "Hearts and stars" decorative masks-How cute and easy is it to create a fun back ground with them?
Everyday hero stamp set

The star back ground was achieved by using Stampin up stencils!

Create with Carl-

Carl had had an idea to create this slider card as soon as he saw the every day hero stamp set-all super heros fly don't they? When he came to make the card, he went to Pinterest for inspiration, and saw Kylie's card, using the everyday hero set- and he loved it-so he decided to CASE (copy and selectively edit) it, adjusting the design so that he could make a slider card. He had never made a slider card before, (he had seen mine from a few months ago-HERE) and, as I was working on my blog post for yesterday, it caused a bit of frustration on my part, as to the help required-LOL-but we got their in the end. It made for a funny LIVE Facebook broadcast to the crazy crafters, anyway. lol.

I LOVE what he ended up creating, and his vision of a flying hero is just amazing.
