Good morning everyone

I hope you are all having a great weekend. It's a bit of a dreary day here today...looks like rain. But that's ok as all the little sprouts are popping through the garden and my lilac trees are starting to bud....I'm sure will be very happy with some rain.

It's time for the High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to us by our lovely and talented Diva Nikki and she has chosen "Little Gem". Nikki would like us to use little gems or beads on our creations this week.

The adorable image I used for my card is "Cherry Chip Chimp".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used liquid applique for the icing. The scallop frame was cut with my nesties. I added some brown bugle beads and some flat backed pearls for the sprinkles. The DP is from Darcie's.

Be sure to check out the High Hopes Blog as the Diva's have some fabulous creations to share with you.

I hope you will have time to play along with us this week and be sure to use a High Hopes image on your card for your chance to qualify for this weeks prize.

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


*High Hopes Stamps are available at
The Rubber Room online store.
