Happy Saturday!
Welcome to the Super & Everyday Hero Blog Hop!

then be sure to hop on over and see Joy at

For my project, I decided to make a gift for my daughter, who loves super heroes!
We are getting pretty excited about the new Superman movie that is getting released in theaters next month so I decided to go with Superman!

For my card, I used the Superman shield, found in the Silhouette online store, and popped that up using some foam adhesive onto my blue card base. I added a little border across the bottom of my card using some white cardstock and yellow cardstock that was punched with the upper crest border punch. Before I adhered my bottom border onto my card base, I stamped that super cute sentiment from the MY HERO stamp set from Joy's Life Stamps and added some red satin ribbon. Once that was done and adhered, I simply rounded the top corners of my card and added a little bling. 

Here is a close up of my sentiment:

Cute huh?
 There are so many great sentiments on the MY HERO stamp set from Joy's Life Stamps.

I also decided to make her a decoration for her room to go along with the card.

I simply cut out the Superman shield using some red vinyl and adhered it to the front of my glass block.
I wasn't too crazy about the white cording from the lights showing so I tied some yellow curling ribbon to the light string and then put my lights inside the block. Then I added some blue satin ribbon to the sides and tied it together at the top of the block with a bow. 

Here is a picture of the block lit up:

One final picture of the card and block together:

She loves it! She is a "super kid" so this is perfect for her!
Now we just have to patiently wait for the movie to be released lol!
