Only 88 days until Christmas! It seems to creep up on us so quickly. I am hoping to get a lot of Christmas cards done by the end of November, lol. That will definitely be a first!

This little cutie patootie is 'Merry Mouse'. I embossed him in black and coloured him with Tombow markers. I used my stickles (of course) on the hat and tunic.

Stop by the High Hopes blog and see what the other Divas have been up to. Hope you join us in some of the challenges.

Hope your day is great!

High Hopes Challenge #89 - WELCOME TO THE FARM

Well Happy Fall Yáll!!! Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. Don't you just love the fresh air now in the evening and early morning.

I stamped "Laurie's Pumpkin Patch" with black Versafine and embossed it in black. I coloured it with Tombow and distress inks. I just love this stamp! I used the "Pumpkin border"to cut out the pumpkins and the sunflowers for the corners. I love that crow so much I just had to put another in the corner with the sunflowers. Papers are from my stash (OMG where did all this paper come from) Even with all this paper I never seem to have the 'right' colours so I think I 'need' to buy more LOL.

Hope your day is great and thanks for stopping by.

High Hopes Challenge 88

Hi Everyone! Hope you are having a great day. It's hard to believe it is September 14th - where has the summer gone. I do love this lovely fall weather though.

This is my card for the High Hopes Challenge #88 - SPOTS AND DOTS.

I love the little mice from Laurie Furnell's just released collection at High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I embossed this little guy (he is just soooo cute) in black and coloured him with Distress Inks. The dotted green paper is from Nana's Kids collection from DCWV. The other c/s is from Bazzill. I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder for he first layer (can't have enough spots or dots you know) and I found four little buttons that matched perfectly and added them as an embellishment. Of course I added my Stickles!

Hope your week is just grand! Thanks for stopping by...

This week's challenge is It's a Girl, It's a Boy. I did this card in pink (I have 5 I really like to do anything in pink) This is one of the images I coloured back in July at the trailer. I stamped"Bubble Bath Bradley" with Memento ink onto Prism Smooth White cardstock and coloured it with Copic Markers. The papers were in my stash (I don't know where I got them). I have had a paper addiction for so long that I have papers I no longer remember where they came from.

I made the flowers with three of my EK success flower punches and of course I added Stickles.

Hope your day is great and thanks for stopping by.
