HIGH HOPES CHALLENG #56









Good morning everyone...

Well it's Sunday and time for the High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to us by sweet Amy L and she has chosen...."A Tall Card" The image I am using this week is "Dapper Dan" and "Snowin and Blowin" sentiment.

We are expecting a snowin' and blowin' snowstorm in the next day or two here in my neck of the woods....so my card fits in with that challenge too!! lol!!




I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used a pigment ink gel pen for the doodles. The frame was made with my nesties, the icicles were done with my MS icicle border punch and I made the snowfkakes with my MS and EK Success punches. The paper is from Graphic 45.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes blog and check out the awesome creations the Diva's have come up with to inspire you this week.

I hope you will have time to play along with us and be sure to use a High Hopes image on your card to be entered in for a chance to win a fabulous HH's stamp.

This is our last challenge before Christmas.......we will be up and running again in the 2010!!

Have a wonderful day and Thanks so much for stopping by....

Karen x




*all High Hopes stamps are available at The Rubber Room an online store.
