Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero: February 2023 Challenge
Welcome back for another Stay Crafty challenge with A Blog Named Hero!
This month's challenge theme is "Animal Crackers". We want you to get out your critter stamps – furry friends, creepy crawlies – if it goes baa, cluck, moo, roar, bark, honk, meow, neigh, oink, hee-haw, quack, trumpet, whoop, squeak, howl, gobble, hoot, croak, chirp, whistle or buzz, and if it crawls, hops, flies, swims, jumps, hovers, flutters, waddles or burrows – all creatures great and small are welcome here!
Here's some inspiration from our design team.
You can find Kate on Instagram.
You can find Michelle on Instagram.
You can find BreAnn on Instagram.
We also have a special guest artist this month – Annette Allen!
Annette used the 2018 December My Monthly Hero Kit, along with the Hero Arts + Pinkfresh Studio You Make A Difference collaboration set. You can find Annette on her blog, Instagram, Facebook and on Pinterest. We're thrilled to have you as our guest this month, Annette!
Now it's your turn – how will you interpret the challenge theme? Use the InLinkz tool right at the bottom of this post to link up your newly created card, and you will be entered into our draw. We will be giving a $50 gift card randomly to one person who plays along, and another $50 gift card to one of our favourites!
To link up your new project that fits the challenge theme, you need to share it publicly somewhere you can grab the link – this can be your blog, Instagram, a Flickr account – anywhere that allows you to have a URL or website location to link up, and where we can see your post.
All products are welcome, but if you want to be in with a chance to win, please use at least one Hero Arts designed product (stamp - physical or digital, stencil, die, rub-on or foil plate).
Entries must be submitted by March 5th at 5:00pm PT to be eligible for the giveaway. Scroll down to find the linkup! If you share your project on social media, we'd like you to use the #heroarts and #staycraftychallenge hashtags, please!
We love leaving comments on your entries, but sometimes that is not possible. Please be assured that we have visited each of your posts, whether it be a blog, Instagram, Flickr or somewhere else, but some platforms may limit comments or only allow comments from members. The best way to allow us to comment is to link up to your Instagram post.

In January, our challenge theme was "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", and there were so many heart-felt cards!
