ABNH birthday

Hello!

I'm so very happy you're here today because A Blog Named Hero is turning TWO today and to celebrate, we're having a Blog Hop with some of our bestest friends and supporters!!!!



If you get lost somewhere along the hop, go back to ABNH for the full list of participants! (It's a looong list by the way, so settle in and get comfy!)

Here is my project








I thought it would be fun to create something on an acetate card. I always love that peek-through effect they give, and it's such a fun challenge for myself, since you really have to plan them out (and I am NOT a planner when it comes to cardmaking.)

Since this is such a long hop, I wont go into details on how I created this card, but if you have questions, please let me know!

Now the next stop in the hop is my sweet, amazingly talented friend;  Jennifer McGuire.

 Be sure to leave comments on each of the blogs and we'll draw two lucky winners thanks to Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp, who are offering mystery prize packages! 

Ok. See you again soon!
