HIGH HOPES CHALLENGE #83

Good morning everyone.....
Its great to be back from our vacation...we had a wonderful time soaking up the sun and walking the low tides. The weather was fabulous too.

It's time again for the High Hopes Challenge.
This weeks challenge is "USE YOUR FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENT".

The adorable image I have used on my card is "WADE".

As most of you know my favorite embellishment is "STICKLES"


I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I cut them out and layered them. The waves were punched with my EK Success punch. The DP is from Crate Paper. I added lots of stickles and some dew drops.

I hope you will have time to play along with us this week and be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog as the Diva's have created some awesome cards to inspire you.



Here are a couple of pic's from our vacation.......
There was a storm across the water....which we missed thank goodness!!!

This is the Confederation Bridge joining New Brunswick and PEI. It's 12.9 km (8miles) over the Northumberland Strait. The longest bridge in the world over ice covered water.
Not a bridge for sissies....lol!!

Well that's it for now....I'm happy to be back to my computer and all my blogging friends....

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

What an excellent card and what a bridge. I hear you on the sissy part. I had never thought about being afraid to cross a bridge until I saw that. Wow! TFS the pictures.
