First Hero Arts Flickr Group Blog Hop!!!

Happy Weekend and Welcome to the very first Hero Arts Flickr Group Blog Hop! For me, cardmaking started with the discovery of the Hero Arts Blog and it is my daily pleasure to visit it ever since. The flickr group is a wonderful group of people and I am honored to be a part of it! I can't believe that we hit 3.000 members this week!
Sweet Jenny organized this Hop and we were allowed to create whatever we want to show off our style. I created this:


That cupcake is from this yummy set called "Birthday Cupcakes" and the sentiment is from this clear set called "Heartfelt Messages". I decided to do some happy paper-piecing, just because I love doing it. The papers are Basic Grey (Kraft), Prima Marketing (pink roses) and Papertrey Ink (pink and green polka dot). For the topping I chose some Ranger Stickles "sprinkles":


I hope you enjoyed my card! To see the blog hop list, just go here. Happy Hopping!

Thanks for visiting and have a happy day!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Jetzt muss ich doch nochmal nachfragen, wie du diese geniale Doppelschleife gemacht hast. Gibt es da einen Trick, ein Tool oder ein Tutorial? (Alliteration am Morgen vertreibt Kummer und Sorgen ^^)
