Happy News!

   Today is the day that I can finally share: I'm a Hero Arts artist!

I'm still in a state of shock that I was asked to join the fabulous folks at Hero Arts,
and I'm looking forward to sharing lots of Hero Arts goodness with you.

I've been a Hero Arts fan since forever and my very first stamps were made by this
wonderful company. I still own hundreds of treasured woodblock stamps and
I've always loved the feel of a curved woodblock in my hands. Still do.

To celebrate the occasion, I've created a card, channeling the ever creative
Shari Carroll with an inking technique she recently shared.
Here's a sneak peek of the card. Visit Hero Arts here for the full card reveal
and also to meet the rest of my new team members!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and sharing in my excitement!
I can't wait to begin my journey, and hope you'll join us at Hero Arts
for lots of fun and inspiration!

p.s. So sorry about all the exclamation points!!!

  40. Donna I am so excited and happy for you right now. I haven't been here to visit in such a long time and to come here and read this news as blown me away. I can't imagine how you must feel right now. I know your love for HA and like most of us in our HA flicker group, we love their products so much and to you this must be a dream come true. I am so proud of you for continuing to always keep right on creating and always submitting to contest and such, but most of all for always being so inspiring and caring to others. Your ability to design cards that pop and make one's jaw hit the floor as always been present. I know I have had that happen to me, so now you are being rewarded for such great work ethic and drive with your creativeness. Love your card so much. Say it in it's entirety on HA blog and it is drop dead gorgeous. Loved it. You rocked it big time. Take care sweetheart. Big Hugs from Canada.
