I am a little late with this weeks High Hopes Challenge....but I'm here. It's a fun challenge....Amy has asked us to "think outside of a card". Go to the HH Challenge blog to see all the Wonderful projects the Divas have come up with!....A Warm Welcome as well to the very Talented Lacey who is back as a Full time High Hopes Diva!!
The little book I altered here is from Michael's. I bought a few of them after Christmas.....for 50cents each....can't beat that...right?....now I wish I would have bought more..... The High Hopes stamp I used on this is from High Hopes....and is called "Hopeful Ant". The sentiment is a Studio G Clear stamp from Michael's.
I colored the image with Copics, prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's.
To alter this little book I only added the 2 red pieces of cs in the alternate corners. I colored the image to match the original colors of the cover. I used my new labels 4 die....and just added some accents....ribbon, staples, k&C flower, jute and brad.
My News is that I am stepping down as a High Hopes Diva. It has been Wonderful to be part of this Fabulous and Talented Team! and High Hopes - Tina and Bethany have and are an Absolute Joy to be a Diva for!.......Life is changing somewhat for me though....Hubby is retiring this fall...that will be an adjustment in itself...lol. You may have noticed that I haven't been posting or commenting on your blogs as much. I have a very treatable vision problem....but need to take care of myself and reduce my time on the computer. You will still see me around......and definitely still see me using Fabulous High Hopes stamps...... I am just needing to balance things out a little.
I woke up to about 4 inches of fresh snow and it is still snowing!!....It's not so bad though...I mean...it's not like it's going to stay...right??!!!....
