Friends for Heifer!!


Good Monday morning, Stampers!!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had beautiful weather for most of it in Southwestern Ontario!! A perfect fall weekend, I think. We went out shopping one day, had friends over for dinner and a movie last night AND I got a LOT of stamping done!! Yippee!

Well, I never thought I'd enjoy a COW stamp so much!!! Isn't it just too cute?? High Hopes just makes all their animal and children stamps SO unbelievably adorable!! This little couple of cutie pies just makes me smile, along with the wonderful sentiment!!

I stamped the image on watercolour paper this time with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink. Then I used my SU markers to colour them in. I also used my Aquapainter in spots to take away some of the colour and make the area look lighter. I sponged around the image and around the sentiment tag with a cosmetic sponge and Creamy Caramel ink. I stamped the prize ribbon, coloured it and cut it out and put it on the corner of the focal image after matting it on Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip. The patterned paper is Wanted by Stampin' UP with Chocolate Chip for the square base and I added four antique copper square brads, some brown linen thread and pop dotted everything!! I'm super happy with this card!!

And I have a secret.........don't tell anyone.....let's just keep this between us! High Hopes will be releasing some new winter stamps VERY soon and I have seen the images with my own two eyes!!! Not a word of a lie....these are my FAVOURITE High Hopes stamps to date!!!! They are just SO perfect!!! I can't WAIT to share them with you!! So keep your eyes peeled (and your wallets too, heehee!)!
