Blog Hop - 5th Anniversary of A Blog Named Hero!

Hi there!

Welcome to my stop in the celebration of A Blog Named Hero's 5th Anniversary, two-day, blog hop! 


If you're following along, you should have come from the sweet, fun and talented, Libby Hickson's blog. If you find a broken link, you can head to A Blog Named Hero's blog to see the full list of hoppers.

There are a ton of prizes to win too! Here's all the giveaway info:

A Blog Named Hero is so thankful for our wonderful sponsors and collaborating companies! Several companies decided to help us celebrate our fifth anniversary with giveaways and they were so generous that we decided to spread the love over both hop days with different prizes to be won each day! Giveaway prizes total more than $500! To win, leave a comment on each hop stop. We will select winners randomly from different blogs, so the more blogs you visit each day, the greater your chances of winning! And be sure to visit the Saturday post from A Blog Named Hero for the list of Saturday hoppers and prizes! Comments must be left before 11:59 PM EDT on Tuesday, March 28th and winners will be announced on March 30th.

Today's prizes include the following:
Good luck and happy hopping!

    Is that awesome or what?!! Good luck everyone!

    I'm so excited they invited lots of previous guest designers, including me, to help them celebrate! Thanks guys! ♥

    They wanted us to use our favorite Hero Arts products, so when I was looking for a favorite Hero Arts stamp to use, needless to say, I had a difficult time choosing. I finally decided on one of their newer stamps, one in which the, flower-loving-stamper in me adores! It's called, Artistic Dahlia.

    Of course I had to pull out my Copic Markers. It's my favorite way to color flowers.



    This stamp is so beautiful and fun to color! You could stamp it and use watercolors, colored pencils, or any number of coloring mediums and get fabulous results! And that sentiment is such a classic stamp. I use it all the time!

    ***There are links below this post of the Copic markers I used, along with all other products.*** 
    Compensated affiliate links used. 

    Please remember this is a two-day blog hop which started yesterday. There are different prizes to be won each day, so be sure to comment on as many stops in the hop as you can, for a better chance to win.

    Now it's time to head over to Betty's blog. I know she'll be sharing something fabulous!

    Thanks so much for stopping by today! ♥
