High Hopes Challenge #123

Good morning everyone....

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


All you need to do is add a number to your card!!!

The adorable image I am using on my card is


As you can see I added my number to his balloon.
I embossed the image and painted it with
Tombows. I also embossed the sentiment.
I added some flat backed pearls and some
corners. The paper is from Basic Grey.

I hope you will have time to play along with
us this week and be sure to check out the
High Hopes Blog
as the Diva's have some fabulous creations
to inspire you this week!!!!

I have one more card to share with you today!!

I always pull out one of my all time favorite
High Hopes stamps when winter is
just around the corner......

"Stackable Stanley"

He is an interactive little fella and you can
use him all by himself or pile him up like I
did for my card!!

I stamped the Stanley's with black Stazon and
colored their bodies with Heavenly H2o's.
The rest of the coloring was done with
Tombows including the background. Before
I painted the background I stuck peel off
snowflake stickers onto the watercolor paper
and painted around them. When it was dry I
took the stickers off which left the white
snowflake outlines. I also added some
frosted lace stickles, little gems and
flat backed pearls.

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