Today, I have a special card that I have popped in the mail for Lesley Croghan. Lesley and her husband Corey are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a little baby girl! So Lori Turner has organised a blog hop in their honour :)
If you would like to see all of the rest of the cards for Lesley, you can check out the Inlinkz on Lori Turner's blog.
You should have come from the blog of one of my current team mates at A Blog Named Hero, Donna Idlet, but if you haven't, make sure you check out the post at A Blog Named Hero, where you will find the complete list of hop participants for today.
We're all making cards with out favourite Hero Arts product - for me, that would have to be my favourite Hero Arts background stamp. Tragically, it is no longer available *sob!*
I used Flower Dot Pattern, which I white embossed and then coloured with my Zig markers and lots of water. I have a lot of favourites among my Hero Arts stash, but I keep on coming back to this stamp over and over again.
I chose this sentiment for this card because that is the way I feel about A Blog Named Hero. I feel so very lucky to be a part of this family of crazy talented papercrafters. I have some very special friends who are either A Blog Named Hero designers, alumni, or special guests. They're my people. (I'll stop now - I'm getting all teary!)
But I couldn't stop there - I have a card using the same background stamp, with a Hero Arts sentiment that fits my feelings for this background stamp perfectly:
I've had people ask on previous blog posts and on Instagram how I do this technique, so I decided to make a video!
