I {Heart} Hero Arts Blog Hop

One of my daily Internet visits is to the Hero Arts blog, and I think it has really grown into a fun stamping community/family. I have been using HA images since I first began stamping and remember clearly what it was like to mail in cards for their contests. Fun, but a very sterile experience. It is so much more rewarding to upload cards and get instant love and support. After all, who can't use more of that in their life?

Today, some of the HA blog regulars are posting Hero cards in their own version of a blog hop. The challenge was to create a thank you card using some of your favorite HA stamps. I used a flower from one of my favorite sets, but I have since lost the stamp numbers. I'm not sure how much that matters anyway since it is a discontinued set. I then paired it a saying from the Thanks a Million clear set (CL304). To finish the card, I layered everything onto paper from Basic Grey's Lemonade collection.

Gorgeous card Laura!! At first I thought the flower was dry embossed with the white around the edge. That stamp must stamp really nicely to make that even solid image.

I have been stamping and a convert from "PB" (would rather not mention) to Hero Arts. I love the clear stamps and really love all the sentiments/verses that HA offers. Love your cards and altho I am not officially part of the HA community, but really love what you all are doing! Happy stamping to all!
