A Blog Name Hero 5th Birthday Hop

Hello and Welcome!  You should have arrived here from the very talented blog of

Today I am honored to be part of A Blog Named Hero's 5th Anniversary Hop. I was lucky enough to be on the very first Design Team that ABNH had. It was one of the best teams I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. I was honored when they asked me to help them celebrate their 5th Birthday.

There are some great prizes up for grabs from the following AMAZINGLY GENEROUS companies. Keep reading to find out how to enter.


I recently got my order of Distress Oxide inks and I haven't been able to stop playing with them since.  So I pulled out some Hero Arts background cling stamps and started playing.


 I used the Leaf and Floral Background Stamp. which is one of my all time favorites. I don't believe they make it anymore but I did find three available for purchase at Amazon. Click HERE to get yours.  If you do a Google search you can find a few other places that have it in stock too.



I added some shimmer to it by using my Wink of Stella pen. You could also mist it with some Perfect Pearls if you have that on hand.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts "You're So Kind" set and you can get it HERE at Simon Says Stamp.
