Happy Sunday to you all....I hope your weekend is going well.

This weeks High Hopes Challenge is brought to us by our Guest Diva.... "Debbie" and she is asking us to use 2 High Hopes images on our card and sentiments don't count!!!

I have been waiting for the perfect time to ink up these 2 adorable here they are....
"Scuba Kitty" and "Birthday Fish".

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used glossy accents on the fish bowl, balloon edges, bubbles and fishes eyes. The frames were cut with my nesties and the borders are done with an Ek Success punch. The corner pieces are also a punch from Ek Success. The DP is from a Basic Grey paper pack. I also added some large clear acrylic dew drops. I added some craft wire to the balloon for the string.

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

I hope you will have time to play along with us this week. To be eligible for your chance to win you must use High Hopes images on your card.

Thanks so much for stopping by...


* High Hopes stamps are available at
the Rubber Room online store.
