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.

And the fun with 2012 Hero Arts stamps continues...

Hello everyone - thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday on my Hero Hostess Blog Hop post.  And Kari really appreciated all the love too - she said "Cardgirls are very VERY sweet." 

If you haven't seen Day 4, check it out!  Such inspiration from 5 great stampers - Sharon, Kathy, Virginia, Sue and Sarah!  And you can still add comments to my Hop post (dated 1/11 here, not this one) and those of any of the participants, plus the Hero Arts Blog this week for the chance to win Hero Arts prizes!

And I have to say thanks again to Kathy for her help getting my Blog Hop post ready when my Blogger wasn't cooperating!!!  Not only can she color up a storm, she's great with computer stuff!  Mind you this was at 12:30 a.m. my time yesterday (1:30 her time) and she was oh so nice to help.

Because of my Blogger problems, I limited my post yesterday to three of my cards, plus Kari's.  She worked so hard on it that I couldn't leave it out!  So here's a card I had ready for the Hop that I passed over.  I just didn't like how my coloring looked.  I made it while in Arizona where I had no Copic markers with me!  I'm sure it would've been beautiful with the Copics!  Anyway, here's my card:

Purple flowers - thinking of you


I used S5601 Newspaper Background - love it, love it, love it - and K5597 Fleurettes, such a lovely flower image which I didn't do justice.  Sentiment is from an older Hero Arts set whose name escapes me right now.

Anyway, thanks for stopping and be sure to stop at the Hero Arts Blog again tomorrow for the 5th and final day of our Hero Hostess Blog Hop.  Some more of my dear hostess friends will be on hand to share their amazing work.
