In our home the name "Hero Arts" often can be heard. Its the name of the stamps I like most of all. I just read on their blog that there are almost 30.000 projects submitted to the Hero Arts flickr group , since the start on March 2008! Very succesfull can be said. Congratulations Hero Arts!! Time for a little party. And were is a party, there must be something sweet isn't it! So here is a card with one of the Hero Arts stamp sets to celebrate.

The notebook you can see here is a "Moleskine notebook". I stamped on it with Hero Arts clear stampset: CL333 What's cooking? Colored it with Derwent colorsoft pencils.

A couple of months ago I discovered the "Moleskine notebooks" at the Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. Imediately I got the idea of stamping on them. So, I bought a package of three kraft notebooks. There are other colors, but I thought the kraft ones are nice to stamp on. There's a little story about the history of these notebooks within the package. Here is a part of it: "Moleskine is the heir of the legendary notebook used for the past two centuries by great artists and thinkers, including Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. This trusty, pocket-sized travel companion held their sketches, notes, stories, and ideas before they became famous images or beloved books. In his book "Songlines", Bruce Chatwin tells us the whole story of his favourite notebook, which he nicknamed "Moleskine"."

I enjoyed it stamping on them. There are two more on my flickr photostream!

During this time of year, early spring, I buy each week fresh tulips. I love tulips! Even when they almost be finished flowering they can be beautiful as you see here!
