HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #31

Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great weekend. Here in Canada we are celebrating Victoria Day tomorrow, so we are having a long weekend. A new front garden is on our agenda, we are just waiting for the weather to clear up. It's supposed to be nice today, still cool but sunny.

The High Hopes Challenge this week is brought to you by....ME!! I have chosen "Can Ya Doodle". I love to doodle on just about anything, so I thought this would be fun.
When I saw the new release bees and butterfly, I knew there would be another step card in my future...lol!!

These adorable images from the new release are Sitting Bee, Bedilia Butterfly, Fanciful Flower, Fanciful Border, Rosey Posey Frame and the Honey Pot.



I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I stamped Bedilia's wing and the large flower in the border twice and layered them. The honey pot is covered with glossy accents. The antenna's were made with black wire. I used my MS border punch behind the sentiment. I used glossy accents on the water drops. The watering can was painted with Gelly Roll silver metallic. I also added lots of Stickles. It took quite a while to paint and cut out the images, but totally worth the time. I am really happy with the way it turned out, I hope you like it too.

Be sure to check out the other Diva's creations, they all did a fabulous job of doodling. I hope you be able to play along with us this week, there are some great High Hopes stamps up for grabs.

Have a great day....and Thanks for stopping by...

Another beautiful card with all the extra's thrown in for free. Honestly, I keep the card you sent me sitting on my craft table and most everyday I pick it up, turn it this way then that way. So much detail in every card you create. You are definitely Top Diva in my book. BTW..Your daughter is making some great looking cakes. Too pretty to eat.
