Hi there!

I'm super excited to share this card with you today, because it's a part of the Hero Arts three-day-long 45th anniversary blog hop!

A Blog Named Hero is a part of it and we're so thrilled.

Here's a peek of my card, but you'll have to head over to the blog to see the whole thing, and all the other DT projects, which are AMAZING.

I hope you'll hop along and don't forget to comment (On the blogs in the hop) for a chance to win one of the prizes from the amazing sponsors!

OK that's it for me for now, see you again soon!!

Happy Anniversary curious kitten!

Hi there crafty peeps!

I'm here to share with you, the card I've got up over on the Hero Arts blog.

I thought it would be fun to combine one of my oldest with one of my newest Hero Arts stamps on this card, to celebrate Hero Arts' 45th anniversary!

To see the full card, head over to the blog :)

I hope you like it! It caused me some troubles I'll admit, but I'm so happy with the finished card!

See you again soon

May Challenge at A Blog Named Hero

Hi crafty friends!

WOW this month has F.L.O.W.N by. I do not like.

Here's my card for the new crafty challenge up on A Blog Named Hero, we're so excited for Hero Arts who are celebrating their 45th anniversary!

To go along with their fun throwback mini-challenges that they've been holding, (where you guess the year of the catalogue), I thought I'd combine one of my oldest stamps (love that old Hydrangea woodblock!!) with one of my newest Hero Arts products, the Butterfly Confetti die.

I watercoloured it up using Hero Arts watercolours then fussy cut it out, and added a sentiment from the new CM355 From the Vault Cute Animals (from the brand new Summer catalogue! How Lucky am I?!)

Then I ran a piece of cardstock from the Hero Hues sampler pack through my diecutting machine, but with a rubber mat, so I embossed instead of diecut, the Butterfly confetti die.

For a final touch I splattered with some gold spray!

I hope you like it!

Talk to you again soon,

Linda xoxo
