Good morning everyone

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far.

This weeks High Hopes Challenge is brought to us by the lovely Michelle and she has chosen "Valentines".

I couldn't wait to ink up this adorable couple.....the image is "Rubbing Nosies" and "Love is in the Air" sentiment.

I enbossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. The white is painted with icicle H2o's. I cut out the image and layered it with foam tape. I used my nesties for the frames. The flowers were done with my EK Success retro flower punch and McGill daisy punch. I added some flat backed pearls for the flower centers. The DP is from The Paper Company.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog, the Diva's have created some fabulous cards to inspire you.

I hope you will have time to play along with us, this weeks prize is the adorable "Troubled Travis" from the new release. Remember, to enter our challenge you must use a High Hopes image on your card.

If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps be sure to check out "The Rubber Room"

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