I {HEART} Hero Arts Blog Hop

Saturday, July 25, 2009
So excited about this blog hop - that I am up at midnight Australian time finishing my card and posting it here!!! Thanks so much to Ashley for organising the blog hop - she is such an inspiration to me!! Love all your designs Ashley!!!

I used lots of Hero Arts goodies!! For the background used the lovely S5099 Misty Swirl Pattern, stamped on watercolour paper with Soft Lilac Shadow Ink and Soft Leaf Shadow Ink. The sentiment is an old Hero Arts one - LL229 A Great Big. I then used birds from 2 sets, LP103 Holiday Birds and LP032 Decorative Birds. Also used felt flowers from CH175 Spring Felpot Flowers. Really, all Hero Arts need to come out with is some Ribbon, and where else would you need to shop!!!


Now to the questions - where did my Hero Arts journey start??? Well I have been stamping since about 1994, and when I look back in my stash, Hero Arts stamps have always had pride of place - what a long way Hero Arts has come. I had a hiatus from stamping for about 8 years, and have gotten back into it over the last few years, and I think my stamp stash is now 80% Hero Arts - I can't wait for the new products and the next catalogue and always have room for the next cute stamp!!

I am so thankful to Hero Arts for their inspiration, encouragement, challenges, great products and for bringing together so many wonderful stampers into a great online community, where encouragement is the first words everyone types, and you feel honoured when someone likes how you put your card together.

THANKS SO MUCH HERO ARTS!!!
