CASology #235: HERO

Hello, friends!  It's time for our new cue card at CASology and this week it is all about your HERO!

When you look up this word, you will find two meanings...
  1. 1
    a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
  2. 2
    another term for submarine sandwich.

I decided to go with the first definition, thinking of all the women in my life who have been heroic and brave in their battles (e.g., againt cancer and other challenges) and who are definitely courageous, outstanding and noble in my opinion.

I used a pretty "Tea Time" tea cup from our sponsor, Avery Elle, and watercolored it with Worn Lipstick distress ink.  The steam was stamped in Hickory Smoke distress ink, then outlined with a Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen.  The sentiment is from Dyane Reaveley's Ranger Ink Dylusions "Clearly the Right Words" stamp set.

Can you see the sparkle in the steam?

What does HERO mean to you?  I can't wait to see your projects!  Be sure to link up your HERO card by noon on Monday (Central time). Check out the unique interpretations of the cue by our Design Team and Guest Designer, too!
