While you are furiously working on your entries using your favorites from Hero Arts, we thought we’d do a giveaway of some of our favorite things. Leave your name in the Inlinkz below (a comment would be lovely, but you can only win if you enter using the Inlinkz tool) and we’ll draw a random winner next Wednesday, April 11th. The winner will receive Hero Arts Large Fabric Design Cling Backgound and a Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Soft Pool!
This giveaway is open internationally!
Hello there and welcome to our FIRST ever challenge!

This week’s challenge (and all the ones to come :)) are sponsored by the amazing, fantabulous

In typical gorgeous style, Lucy Abrams made us this:
**edited** The adorable foxes in this card are actually from the stamp! To make them facing each other Lucy simply cut off the head and tail (no foxes were harmed in the making of this card though :)) and put them on the opposing side for one of them! HOW COOL!

And Hero Arts Flickr Group sweetheart Lin Brandyberry created this stunning number!
