Happy New Home | Hero Arts December 2021 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and happy Monday, I’m so glad you’re here! It’s release day at Hero Arts and we’re celebrating the December release with a blog hop full of inspiration and a giveaway. If you’ve arrived from visiting the wonderful Pocono Pam, you’re right on track. If you’d like to start from the beginning, head on over to the Hero Arts blog.

My first card today features this month’s My Monthly Hero kit. This month’s kit is a reminder that no matter where we live, near or far, in cities or in neighborhoods – through it all we’re here for each other. The kit includes a lively cityscape cling background stamp, a beautiful new cover plate die, and a clear stamp set containing useful messages for welcoming new neighbors, or letting friends and family know you are thinking of them. The images in the clear set have coordinating dies as well. Rounding out the kit is Pitch Black cardstock, ink cubes (perfect for blending a gorgeous sunset) and adorable clothespin embellishments. It’s a fabulous value at only $34.99!
