High Hopes Challenge #122


It's time for the High Hopes Challenge
This weeks challenge is ...


The fabulous image I am using today is...

"Hope for Peace Snowy"

by artist Laurie Furnell

I embossed the image with black and painted
it with Tombows. I used heavenly H20's for
the snowman and dove. I added some
Diamond Dust for the snow. The papers
are from Basic Grey.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog
and check out the awesome creations
the Diva's have for you today!!!

I hope you will have time to play
along with us this week and remember you
must use a High Hope image on your
card to qualify for the fabulous prize!!!!

I also want to share a card I created using
a tutorial by "Beate Johns" over at SCS.

"Telescoping Card"

I used the adorable High Hopes
"Snowy Portrait"
"Merry Christmas, Eh"

This is how it looks folded up

How cute is this when it's open!!!

I embossed the image and sentiment with
black and painted the image with
Tombows. I used my nesties for the
circles. The papers are fromBasic Grey.

This was so much fun to is the
tutorial if you want to give it a try.

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