I {Heart} Hero Arts blog Hop


Hi all,

Well over on the Hero Arts flickr group the lovely Ashley has organised a blog hop. The rules are as follows:

1.) Create a Thank You card for Hero Arts using your favorite Hero Arts stamps (don’t forget to list the stamps you used so others can add them to their wish lists).

2.) Answer these two questions:
a. Tell us your Hero Arts story. How did you get started using Hero Arts products?
b. Hero Arts is full of great people. Tell us why you are thankful for Hero Arts!

So here is my thankyou card. I was inspired by both Lucy & Jenn when I made this card. I was playing with my new nestibilities & have been admiring what these two talented women have been doing using these nesties.

My Hero stamps:
F4927 Scroll Tree
LP032 Decorative Birds
CL272 All Occasion Messages
CL298 Scattered Leaves

Now for the fun part -
How did I get started with Hero Arts stamps? Well I discovered them at my LSS Daisychains. I fell in love with the Decorative Birds & decided to buy them on a whim. Then I discovered the website & the rest they say is history :D.

Why am I thankful for Hero Arts? It is because of two things,I have been challenged constantly with the weekly challenges & made lots of wonderful friends. I love that Hero Arts gives you all the tools you need to make wonderful cards through their website, with their blog, card gallery & techinque articles. I have learnt so much in the last 12 months & I would like to think that has helped me improve my cardmaking skills. The second reason I love Hero Arts is that I have found a whole community of like minded people who have become some really great friends. Which wouldn't have happened if I didn't buy that one stamp & found the website.

So to HERO ARTS I say a huge THANK YOU :D

Have a wonderful blog hop everyone :) maybe we'll cross paths along the way. I can't wait to see what you all come up with. So for now TTFN
