Virginia organized this fun hop, inviting all the Hero Hostess alumni who recently attended ScrapFest with Barb. It's already 10/28 at Virginia's house so let the celebration begin!! If you’ve arrived from the oh-so talented Judy’s blog, you’re on the right track. Here is the full blog hop order if you’d like to start at the beginning:

VirginiaI met Barb in person back in 2010 after meeting her online through the Hero ArtsFlickr Group. Barb is known for being a positive, kind person who encourages everyone in the group. Lucky me – I live in the same metro area as Barb so we can get together to shop (usually at Archiver’s). We always have fun and spend way too much money!!
Today we are sharing birthday cards we made for sweet Barb – here’s mine:
Barb likes blue – check out her photostream – so I wanted to do a blue card. I started with some Hero Arts Sea Layering papers (three shades of blue in the pack – I used two of them). The light blue background panel is stamped with the Hero Arts cling stamp “Life of the Party Words” using Neon Blue ink. The patterned paper strip is a fun piece from Little Yellow Bicycle’s Splash paper pad. I stamped and cut the label using a Hero Arts for Archiver’s Stamp and Cut set. I actually cut three labels – dark blue, white and light blue. Just stamped on the light blue one and then cut it down, layered on white, cut that one down and layered on dark blue with foam tape. The sentiment is from a different Stamp and Cut set – that one has a label too but I liked this one better for Barb’s card. Embellished with some gems and pearls – done!
Happiest of birthdays to you, Barb! Hope you enjoyed our little surprise!!
