I was going to wait a few more days before 'announcing' my big news here on the blog, but I'm just too TOO excited.

My good friend Mary Dawn Quiridingo ( and I are starting a new Challenge blog for lovers of Hero Arts products,!!!

Twice a month we will host challenges with prizes from the AMAZING Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts themselves!

We're so thrilled to announce too, that Hero Arts has given us the official 'thumbs up'!! We will be run completely separately from HA, but we are so so elated that we've been given their blessing and support.

The Challenges will have various themes as we go along, and all will be 'based around' the use of Hero Arts products (old and new :)) but people who want to enter the challenges will not be disqualified if they don't use Hero Arts. (Though I can't imagine ANYONE not having a single Hero Art product! lol)

In between the challenges, we will be bringing you tutorials, videos, technique ideas, guest blogger and MUCH much more! *claps hands*

I hope you'll pop over o the blog and have a look, its still in its very early stages right now, but you can grab a blinkie for your blog, tweet/facebook about us (we have twitter and facebook accounts too so you can follow us/friend us) and generally join in the excitement!

We cannot wait to go live!!

Our first challenge will be April 1st, but we are hosting a Celebratory week in the lead-up to April 1. Just WAIT till you see who's lined up to help us celebrate!!! *eeeeeeeeeek*

*sighs relief* I'm so glad I got that out. The secret was killing me!

I'll be back soon with more craftiness :)

*hugs & happiness*
