Hello everyone...

I hope your weekend is going well. We are having a cold snap here in SW Ontario...even a few snow flakes yesterday. Crazy weather but spring will come eventually...I'm sure of it!!!

This weeks High Hopes Challenge is brought to us by "Jeanne" and she has chosen...."Good Enough to Eat". Jeanne would like us to use a food related image on our card.

The adorable image I am using is "Mildred".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my nesties ovals for the frames and the side borders are done with my MS punch. I added little drops of Adirondack Acrylics for the flower centers. The paper is from Graphic 45.

The Diva's have some amazing creations to share with you so be sure to check out the High Hopes Blog.

You must use a High Hopes image on your card for your chance to qualify for this weeks prize.

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