High Hopes Challenge #6, Blog Candy and POTM!!


Good Sunday morning stampers!! I hope some of you got an extra hour of sleep this morning with Daylight Savings Time! I forgot to turn my clock back so when I woke up I saw that it was 9am and thought, wow, I actually got to sleep in!! But then I realized it was really only 8am....ugh.

Anyway, it's Sunday again and you know what that means!! It's time for another High Hopes Challenge!! This week's challenge is to create a holiday card with non-traditional colours! So I decided to make a pink and blue Santa!! hahaha!

Part of the reason I wanted to use these colours is because I have the awesome new Be Merry dp by My Mind's Eye that I got from The Town Scrapper! I LOVE this paper and the unusual colour combo for Christmas cards...I love it!!

I decided to ink up my Woodland Santa and colour him using my Copic markers to match the dp. The card base is a 6x6 Soft Sky square and I sewed the dp to a square layer of Pretty in Pink. The beautiful satin polka dot ribbon was given to me but I believe it is from Papertrey, as is the sentiment that I used. I pop dotted Santa and his tree and added a blue button! I think Santa makes a rather cute pink and blue card!!



Now for this week's challenge over at the HH Blog, you will see that there will be some yummy rubber candy for one random participant! If you join in our challenge and link it up in the appropriate post over there, you will be in the running to win some images from the latest release. Just check out this post for all the details!!

Not only that, here's some MORE exciting news!!! The first of the month always brings a new Project of the Month stamp special at High Hopes and you can read about the latest special in THIS POST!!!

Have a great day and I hope you get to stamp something!!!

Super sweet, Kim! And good for Woodland Santa to dawn some pink! Glad to see that he is in touch with his feminine side, he he he! Or maybe Mrs. Clause put his white shirt in the washer with his red suit, lol! Hate when that happens! Love your gorgeous paper and the scrummy pink bow!!! Beautiful as always!!!
