High Hopes Challenge #40!!


Happy High Hopes Sunday, stampers!! It's time for another super challenge from High Hopes and guess who is the hostess with the mostess for this week?? Well, it's ME of course!! Hahaha!!

I love the summer months, the sunshine, playing outdoors, wearing my sunglasses and my shorts....but this week I want you to think about snow, hats and gloves, presents and winter!!! This week's theme is Christmas in July!!! I know some people get started on their holiday cards early....not me....so this is quite a challenge! So pull out your holiday themed High Hopes stamps and let's see what ya got!

I adore this new image of Mudzie and Choppers, two of my favourite characters drawn by Crissy! I had been whining about wanting to see more stamps with them....do you think she listened?? Hehe! I stamped Mudzie and Choppers Carolling on Neenah smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them in using my Copic markers to coordinate with the patterned papers. The dp I used is retired from Stampin' Up but I love it, so I horded it and now I still have some to play with. I love the rich colours in it!

The Copic marker colours I used were: E31, E33, E34, E35, E25, E27, E41, E42, R30, YG95, R29 and BG75.

The card base is a 6x6 Chocolate Bazzill cardstock square with Olive for matting. I used my Nesties to create the focal layer using Real Red for matting. I added some olive ribbon, two brown corduroy buttons with linen thread, pop dotted the main layer and stamped the sentiment on the bottom.



If you play along with our challenge this week, you have a chance of winning these new High Hopes stamps featured on my card!! So turn up your air conditioning, put your favourite winter sweater on, grab some hot cocoa, turn on the Christmas music and get stampin'!!!

Be sure to hop on over to the High Hopes blog to check out the wonderful inky inspiration provided by our lovely Divas!! Happy Holidays!! *giggle*
