High Hopes Challenge #41

Hello everyone;
I was going to post earlier but a huge thunderstorm rolled through and the lights were flickering, so I thought it best not to be on the computer while this was going on. It has passed now and the temp has skyrocketed....yay!! Bring it on!!

The High Hopes Challenge this week is brought to us by the divine Diva, Nikki. She has chosen "Sparkle and Shine". I love this challenge and my "stickles"....thanks Nikki!!

The adorable images I am using is are Thankful Friends, Oak Corner and Oak Border. I try not to pick favorites, as I do love them all...but the turkeys in the new release are just soooo cute!!

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used icicle H2o's on his collar and cuffs and metallic silver Gelly Roll pen on his buckles. The dots are stamped with chateau grey Versa ink and the dot stubbie from Stamps by Judith. The highlights are done with my Inkssentials white gel pen. I embossed the burnt orange paper with a CB folder. The trim is from Bunny-Zoe's shop. I stamped the sentiments with Stazon black onto acetate. The borders are EK Success and MS punches.
That's pretty much it...I hope you like it.

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


*the HH's new release is in stock at The Rubber Room and online store. Check for availability, as some images are already sold out. Shipping worldwide.
