Exciting News!

Hello!  I have the most exciting news, in case you haven't seen it check out today's Hero Arts blog here!  I am thrilled to become one of the newest Hero Arts Hostess!  I can't tell you how excited I am!  Ever since I found out I have been thrilled and it's been hard to sleep!  When I wake up in the morning before I even open my eyes I get  huge smile on my face! I am so happy to be finally be able to share the news with you as my hubby doesn't get it!  And I know you do!  I love Hero Arts!  There products are amazing!  The company,  the artists and workers are all great!  I love being part of the Hero Arts flickr group!  Everyone is great and kind and sooo talented.  And the site is easy to use for anyone! 

Tami asked us to create a friendship card for the blog with our announcement.  What a perfect theme for a card since I have made such great friends in the flickr group, many I have been able to meet at Scrapfest last year!  I love having crafty online friends as before I got involved in the flickr group I used to talk poor Chad's ear off about techniques and this product and that product.  Although I don't feel all that bad about it, I hear a lot about sports and a NHL hockey team coming back to our city!    I do have a lot of friends who are crafty too but not as into it as me so they got me but not like my fellow flickr friends.  Plus my flickr friends love Hero Arts like me!  

I can't tell you how nervous I was about making a card for the blog!  I wanted it to be a good representation of me and perfect.  I worked on it for days!  I may have made 5 different versions taking photos of each and studying it!  I am happy with it how it turned out:

For this card I adhered the clear stamp backwards on the block and inked it and stamped that first, than the stamp over top!  I went with a hot pink, light pink, orange and brown color scheme as it's my favorite!

Becoming a hostess right now for the next 3 months is the perfect time for me and my family!  It's winter and freezing outside and I try to stick home more.  I hardly work too since it's that season!  I find myself more crafty too!  And I won't feel bad about not taking the kids to the park or outside as I can't it's too cold!  So awesome!

Thank you to all my blog readers!  I am so thankful to you and your sweet comments that you leave me!  :>  I can't wait for what the next 3 months has in store!
