Joy's life Hero Blog Hop

Welcome to the Super and Everyday hero blog hop, featuring stamps from the Joy's Life My Hero stamp set. If you didn't come from Maria's blog, you might want to go back to the beginning because there are lots of prizes and inspiration.

I created this card with some Bazzill cardstock, some Clearsnap embossing powder and ink, my Joy's life stamp (of course) and ... drinking straws!

I glued the straws in a pattern on a scrap piece of paper then snipped the ends to create a straight line.

Here is the blog lineup:


 I don't know what I am giving away yet, but if you want to win a surprise gift from me, become a follower (or already be one) and leave a comment. I will randomly choose one winner to get a surprise!

Now you are on to Stacey's blog!
