Happy Friday Giveaway!

Good morning, everyone!

Guess what I have for you this Friday?!! (It's good, I promise!)

Remember how the other day I mentioned the exciting news that Hero Arts & BasicGrey were joining forces to put out some exclusive stamp sets? Well, today, Hero is featuring them on their blog!

The sweet Jennifer McGuire asked if I'd do a little something using our joint products and how could I pass that up? We're sharing the full instructions over at Hero if you'd like to create some of these for your own. :)
Photobucket
Sweet Threads Floral Note Cards
(Card size - 5½”x4¼”)
Supplies: Hero Arts Sweet Threads Repositionable Rubber Stamps (CG309), Hero Arts Sweet Threads Labels Repositionable Clear Stamps (CL510), Hero Shadow Ink; BasicGrey Sweet Threads 6x6 Pad (SWT3291), BasicGrey Opaline Pearls Other: Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Ink¸Ranger Stickles, Uni-ball Signo pen, Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, Maya Road Leaf hat pins, Bazzill Cardstock, 1/8” hole punch

But you know me. I can't have a post about brand new goodies without wanting to share some of them with you so that's exactly what I'm going to do! I've got some new Hero Arts/BasicGrey stamps as well as a 6x6 BasicGrey pad or two (of the new lines :)) ready to find a new home with one of you! Simply link me up to a stamping project of yours (online gallery or blog) and you'll be entered to win!

Have a great (long) weekend everyone! The winners of the collection packs will be posted shortly!
xoxo,
