My Hero Arts Story
It must be just over 10 years ago that I attended a stamping workshop basically just to keep a friend company.....and much to my surprise I loved it..... purchased a little box set of stamps on the day......came home and didn't have a clue what to do with them......in the box was a leaflet from Hero Arts with their web site....so I went online and the rest is history.    I fell in love with stamping and basically from that day onwards....well let's say I am addicted fuelled by the fabulous inspiration from the wonderful Shari Carroll and the rest of the Hero Arts Design Team.
Why do I love Hero Arts
The quality of their stamps is second to none......and that goes for their customer service too.
They just keep bringing out more and more fabulous and on trend designs and I just want them all.
They are a dedicated green company......almost all of their products are made locally and with environmentally friendly raw materials.
Why do I want to say thank you to Hero Arts
Without Hero Arts....I may never have got involved in this wonderful addiction and met so many lovely crafters and I would like to say a big thank you to Hero Arts for all their fabulous products I have accumulated over the years...for all the inspiration and last but not least for introducing me to all the lovely girls on the Hero Arts Flickr Group.....they are just the best......super friendly.....great fun and always willing to help the newbies......so if you want to join in the "I Love Hero Arts Blog Hopping Frenzy"    click  HERE.
Hugs Kath xxxxx
P.S. the lovely Beverley is giving away some delicious blog candy to the participants...all you have to do is tell her your favourite Hero Arts stamp....am I allowed to say all of them
