Day 2: 2013 Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!



Welcome to the first stop of Day 2 of the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!!! 

The last stop in yesterday's hop was the blog of the very sweet and talented Donna Mikasa!  (If you find a broken link, you’ll find a master list of the hop links at the Hero Club blog.  Also, please report broken links to Tami.)  The hop is running through Friday January 18th so check the Hero Club Blog each day this week to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

And did someone say PRIZES???!!!  Yep!  Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments.  For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog.  The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!

There’s definitely a lot to love in the new 2013 Hero Arts catalog!  First up is a card using the new cling stamp CG525 Tall Flowers:





I really love the whimsical quality of these flowers!  This stamp will actually cover a whole card front and I can see myself reaching for it often J  And that happy “Hello!” sentiment?  Its part of the new clear set CL652 Fancy Basics.  I can’t overstate how much I LOVE the larger sized font of the sentiments in this set!

The next card features the new cling stamp CG513 Everything Flowers.  Such a fun image to color!  Since my distress inks were still on my desk from the first card I went with the same color combination:)  I also used another sentiment (looove that pretty font!) from CL652 Fancy Basics:



Next up on the hop is the blog of the fabulous and always funny Judy Jung!  Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to comment to get a chance to win some of these awesome new stamps!
