Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

A Blog Feature .... and some blog candy

My friend Lin (quilterlin on Flickr) let me know that my Hero Hostess Blog card was featured today on the Simon Says Stamp Blog!  How thrilling - I really enjoyed making that card (see my post from 1/31/11 here too).  I just had to share this with my Hero Arts Flickr group and decided to offer some Blog Candy to announce this new blog 'o mine, just started last week.  So here's the blog candy:


Forgive the bad photo as it's dark here already!  I had a fun day shopping with a crafting friend - we visited four stamping stores, including Archiver's and Anchor Paper where I picked up these fun items for my blog candy:
  • Hero Arts Whimsical Houses clear set
  • Hero Arts Art Flowers
  • Hero Arts Mixed Accents
  • Basic Grey Pyrus 6x6 paper pack
Just leave me a comment on this post by midnight Monday night (my time - North America CST) to be included in the random draw.  I was so excited to figure out how to use a randomizer - no need to pull names outta the hat anymore!!  Thanks for stopping and sharing the end of an exciting week for me!
