I {Heart} Hero Arts Blog Hop

Hey Everybody! What a fun day it is today! Hero Arts is such a generous and kind company I thought it was about time we all gave them a BIG thank you! So to celebrate such a wonderful company I put together a little blog hop going on over here. Maybe that is why you are here?

My Hero Arts Story: After having my son almost two years ago I was browsing through my local stamp store and came across a Hero Arts catalog. It had so many fun ideas I had to buy it! I admit that I copied several cards in the catalog because I had only stamped a little bit here and there but my creativity soon took off. I also had to check out their website and heard about this new blog they were going to start with lots of fun ideas and challenges. I got on board and haven't looked back!

Why I {Heart} Hero Arts: They are a creative, fun company that is customer focused. Really, they make you feel like part of their community. I love each of the designers individually and as a group for being so kind and keeping me on my toes with fun new challenges! I can't forget the people working behind the scenes either...I wouldn't have stamps with out them. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Materials
[Appericate Hero Arts Card]
Stamps: Live Simply, Home II
Paper: PTI, BoBunny, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed
Other: PrismaColor Pencils
