Let's get started with my card for the hoppin' fun:
I thought the most perfect way to start saying 'Thank You' to Hero Arts was to, ofcourse, use lots of yummy Hero Arts goodies and incorporate them onto my card.....even threw in a HUGE heart-shaped chipboard from HA as well...teeheee....too cute, I just adore those chipboards.
Added to the fun, is my love for their art flowers, gems, and ofcourse, their stamps.....so I went ahead and used the Asian Doll stamp.....I can't seem to get enough of those adorable dolls!
There were two questions asked in this blog hop and I'll start off by answering the first question....how did I get started in Hero Arts?
Well, long before I joined into their Flickr Photo Sharing Forum......I was already a member of Flickr and simply was using it to store my data and photos as I went along. I would create, photograph, and then upload my projects to Flickr to store only and had no intentions of doing anything other than that.
Life was (and still is) quite busy and I never had time to 'join' groups and comment on other people's work. One day, two very, sweet ladies noticed my work and commented on them....one lady in particular is also one of our very own HA members......Mary Perry (aka: grandmaper)!
She told me that she noticed some of my projects were Hero Arts and that I should submit them to the pool so that I can enter contests and win prizes and have fun meeting people.....I was a little hesitant but I said, what the heck!
So I did, and I think within minutes of uploading a few photos, I RECEIVED AN AMAZING amount of responses....I was in shock really!! So I started to respond back and familiarize myself with the process ......and the rest is pretty much history!! It's been so much fun and non-stop ever since!
So really, you MUST always go back and THANK the first person who got you started in something new - a new journey as I would have called it back then....Thanks to you too Mary! I wouldn't be a part of HA without you!
The second question asked was,"Why are you thankful towards Hero Arts?" I'm thankful because of all the inspiration I see out there from the wonderful group of artists that enjoy doing exactly what I do.....it is such a passion as well as it is an art form! I'm also thankful to the abundance of crafting/technical knowledge that I have gained thru Hero Arts' website which is chockful of tutorials, videos, how-to's, and thought provoking challenges each week. So much excitement to be had!
Enjoy the card...and.......from the Heart, Thank you very much!!
