Celebrating 5 Years of ABNH



Been awhile, huh? But I had to participate in this amazing, prize-filled blog hop celebrating the 5th anniversary of A Blog Named Hero! I'm so proud of ABNH and I'm so grateful to Lisa and Jessica for continuing to keep it going. And to all of you, for playing along.

So, prizes: full of them. Make sure to comment on as many stops along the hop as you can, there are 2 days worth of beautiful projects to ogle and over $500 in giveaways! You can see the full list of participants and prizes at A Blog Named Hero. If you get lost along the way, you can find links to get you back on track there as well.

Now, I'm more than a little rusty as far as card making and blogging goes, but I did what I could with what I could put my hands on. My craft room is a jumble while we're doing a little painting and room switching at my house. But I was able to put my hands on my favorite Hero Arts floral stamp and my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. My card is simple, but after almost a year of not making a card I can't complain too awful much. I think the sentiment speaks for itself.


Your next stop on the hop is Simon Says Stamp, our sponsor from the very beginning. Thank you, Heidi and Simon for believing in Linda and I, all those years ago.

Enjoy the hop!
