Barb's Surprise Blog Hop!



Recently a group of Hero Arts flickr friends met at Scrapfest, and Barb organized our dinners and kept us all in line while we were there.  We all clicked immediately and had a fantastic time, way too short!  One of our number, Virginia, thought it would be a fun idea to have a little blog hop in honor of our friend Barb - today is her birthday!  We are each making her a card; here is mine:

For Barb

supplies: ivory card base, design papers from Doodlebug Design and MME, Penny Black Petal Party flowers and Hero Arts sentiment from Sending Smiles Messages, VersaFine onyx black ink, pale yellow buttons

Barb loves pink and green, and she and I share a love of flowers, so that made this card easy to make!  Happy Birthday, my friend - wishing you a wonderful birthday!

Here are links to some alumnae Hero Hostesses who will be participating:
