A Blog Named Hero Blog Hop!

Hello!
Welcome to A Blog Named Hero's 2nd Birthday Blog Hop.
If you are not familiar with ABNH, it is a fabulous and inspiring blog set up by two sweet and talented gals, Mary Dawn and Linda, and devoted to all things Hero Arts. And they are two years old today!! YAY!!
You should have arrived from Sindhura Prajay's blog. If not, (or if you encounter any broken links) head to the start of the hop HERE.
Now, on to my celebratory card. :)
The other day I shared a card created with Hero Arts Bubble Confetti stencil. I had some leftover watercolour paper misted with neon pink ink and I thought it would be fun on a congratulations card.
So I used an owl from Hero Arts' Missing You Operation Write Home set, and a couple of sentiments from their new Yay! set, and voila, a simple but super bright congratulations card.

I really really love this neon spray. I can't wait to try out some of the other colours too.

Huge congratulations Mary Dawn and Linda - I'm so pleased for you.

---------------GIVEAWAY-------------
Leave a comment here and you could win a prize package from either Hero Arts or Simon Says Stamp. Winners will be chosen randomly from all the comments on all the blogs, so I suggest you leave a comment on every blog in the hop. :)

And now I'm thrilled to link you up to your next stop on the hop - the owner of ABNH:
Mary Dawn Quirindongo 
who is certain to have something AMAZING to show you. :)
Enjoy!!!
Bye for now.
