Playing Favorites

Have you joined the new challenge blog called A Blog Named Hero?  Their first challenge is running now, through April 10, and all you have to do is make something using your favorite Hero Arts stamp or product.


One of my favorite stamps is this one from 2004, called Sketch Tulips.  It is discontinued now, but you can find it as a free digital image.  It was on a card sent to me by my friend Mary Anne Rhodes, and it made me fall in love with Hero Arts stamps!  

ABNH Playing Favorites

supplies: white cardstock, Amuse gingham and dot papers from Barb, Hero Arts E3020 Sketch Tulips, Northwoods H4632 sentiment, VersaFine onyx black ink, prisma watercolor pencils and Memento markers, Hero Arts CH173 Hearts Accent Pearls, Nesties Labels Eighteen, tiny white ric-rac, tiny pop-squares to lift flowers

Another of my favorite products is the little pink heart pearl, which I used to dot the "i" in the sentiment (it's really a tiny flower).  I hope Hero Arts never discontinues these; I think they are darling!
