Another Tuesday is here. Hope everyone is having a great start to their week.

The card today is "Maya Monkey" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

I never turn up the chance to do little girl cards (with 5 grandsons, girl cards are not an option)

This little monkey is so cute. I embossed her in black and of course used my tombow markers and stickles. I found just the right colour background paper in my 'stash'. The pink ribbon flowers with pearls make it so girlie.

Make sure you check out High Hopes Blog to see the fantastic TUTORIAL by SIRPALINA - Colouring with Distress Inks.

Watch for the new release coming soon

Brought to you by Alie.....

This week's challenge is using fabric!

Hi everyone! I think spring is on the way! I can just smell it in the air. I'm sure there will still be a bit more snow, but April is just around the corner. I can't wait.

Speaking of April...the rainy month, I decide to do High Hopes "Rainy Day Ducky". He is just adorable.
I embossed him in black and used Tombows to colour him (and of course I used my Stickles for a little bling)

Since the challenge is fabric, I made a fabric flower with frayed the edges and added a button to the centre. I used another piece of fabric (also frayed) just like decorative paper as a layer under Ducky. I cut out a couple of hearts from the fabric for embellishment at the top also.
As well I made this little guy a 'Tilt Card'. Watch the little video below to see how his head moves. I had soooo much fun making this card. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their day. Today is DOUBLE DUTY for your stamps day!! I wanted to do something bright and colourful. I usually colour a number of things in one sitting and then make them into cards or scrapbook pages later on. I am not sure what I was thinking when I coloured this but it obviously wasn't about winter. This is A High Hopes stamp called "South Pole Pals". Its a Polar Bear and a Penguin! I knew this...but I guess I forgot when I was colouring it (memory is pretty much shot, LOL) I think it turned out just as well as a brown bear and blue bird (or is it a parrot?) Anyhow, there you go..... two uses for the same stamp. Now you can use this one all year round!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
Hugs x
PS..I embossed of course in black, coloured with Tombow markers, added Stickles. The card is a called a "Spring Card" and I made it from a template I purchased a few years ago.

Sorry I am a little late with my challenge card. I had one of those mornings. Slept in, rushed to get to work. When I looked just now in my blog to make sure it when on at its scheduled 9:00 am - it was not on!!!!
I went to look and all my post was gone and only the pic was saved. I have no idea what happened....
Anyway, I am writing this at work and hope all will accept my apology for my less than organized day.

I think it will get better as I can just go up from here!!!
Have a great day (I really hope it turns out better than mine LOL)
