This week's challenge is BUNNIES, BEARS, BALLOONS

brought to you by ...

Hi Everyone, hope you are well and happy that spring is in the air!! I did not post last week as my grandkids stayed with me for a week while Mom & Dad were on a much needed vacation. As it turns out I need a vacation now!! I guess I'm not as young as I think I am LOL

For this challenge I chose "SITTING PARTY BUDDY"

He is one of High Hope's newest creations by artist Laurie Furnell.

He is so cute and I really enjoyed colouring this sweet little guy.

After embossing with black and colouring with Tombow markers, I used my circle Nesties to cut him out. I decided to put a ribbon ruffle all around the end of the circle.

I cut the corner of the decorative paper with a circle curve and used part of a Nesties scalloped circle just behind it. I finished off with a co-ordinating red ribbon and of course, Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by...hope you have a great day.

Hope everyone enjoyed Day One!!! Here is my sneak peek for Day Two!!

Surprise - A Party Dragon by artist Dustin Pike. How cute is he....

I embossed him in black and coloured with Tombow markers. Yes stickles (I know how I''m so predictable). I found a great paper in my stash - I think it looks like dragon scales so I used it as one of my layers. I used a star embossing folder (not sure of the company name now) but I got it from Ecstasy Crafts a while back.

Be sure to stop by the High Hopes Blog to see all the fantastic creations from all the High Hopes Divas from Day One and Day Two!!!


Another great High Hopes Challenge


The First Day of the High Hopes New Release


I used the Robot Unicycle (he's wheelie cute)LOL. This was created by artist Laurie Furnell. I embossed him with black and coloured him with Tombow markers. Of course I added glitter. I found some great silver glitter paper in my stash and some real metal mesh to use as layers. I had a couple of screw head brads, and I stole a few bolts from DH tool box.
