HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #47...and some exciting news

Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great weekend. I had a rotten cold all week and have missed so much blogging time, but I hope to catch up today. I don't normally catch colds but I must have walked into a sneeze somewhere and the bug caught me!!

The High Hopes Challenge this week is brought to us by our adorable Diva Amy and she has chosen "Lotsa Layers"

The image I am using is "Let the Snow Begin". I just love this image, one of my all time favorites and trust me when I say, I have soooo many!!

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I stamped part of the image again and painted and cut out the little snowmen and layered them. I painted dries clear glue around the edges of the card, snow areas and the icicles and added fine diamond dust. I added stickles to the ribbon. The snowflakes are punched with my MS and EK Success punches and I added the diamond dust and layered them. The designer paper is from Darcie's.
I hope you like it.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes blog and check out all the amazing creations by the other Diva's. There are some fabulous stamps up for grabs and all you have to do is play along and add your creation to Mr. Linky. Hope to see you there!!

*all High Hopes stamps are available
at The Rubber Room and on-line store.
Special orders available upon request.
