High Hopes Wednesday

So, if you didn't already know the super fun stamp company High Hopes Stamps has started a blog! I am so excited because I love those stamps. To promote the new blog they are holding all kinds of giveaways and challenges. I had to join in the fun and pull out my High Hope stamps. The first challenge was to create a Birthday card using brads. I picked the adorable Hippo stamp for that challenge. I colored everything in with my Copics and added stickles to her fingernails and checks. The patterned paper used is Basic Grey "Urban Prairie". The second challenge was to create a card with the colors green, blue, brown, and a neutral. I picked my favorite little bunny for this one. I had to add orange to the card since the stamp features carrots. Yikes...I hope that's ok :) It also happened to coordinate with yesterday's SCS Color challenge. I love it when things work out unexpectedly. I also colored in with my Copics and used my Spica pens to highlight some details. The patterned paper is from SEI "Oasis" collection. The brads and flowers are from SU. Well, that's all I have for you today. I can't wait to see what next week's challenge is! Make sure to stop by the High Hopes blog for all the details on how to play :)

BTW I am feeling MUCH better today! Thank you so much for all the get well wishes!! You guys ROCK :)

Until then,
