Hopes were High

Hello - Happy Sunday.

I have been just so excited and waiting for the ok to spill the beans :0)  I was chosen to join the Divas at HIGH HOPES!!!  When I saw the post saying they were looking to add to the DT I was so nervous to throw my name into the hat. You see High Hopes is like my first love. They were my first obsession in the big wide world of stamping. Way back when I first started surfing blogs and the internet shops I just totally fell in love with the High Hopes images. I think it was all the fabulous animals they do :0) And I have always had a soft spot for High Hopes ever since. So I gathered up my courage and jumped in. And then recently I got the email ... asking if I would like to join the team.  Well do Donkeys have long ears?? UH YES PLEASE!

Happy Dancing around ever since. So while playing yesterday I thought that this was a fun image to color and make a card.

This image just made me smile - "Party Cow"... and I love the sentiment "I've got the moosic in me!"

This cow knows how to boogie don't you think? LOL I colored up with my Copics and then did some shadowing with pencils. My pattern papers are all from KaiserCraft "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" pad. I have had this pad for a long time and never used a single page out of it. I love the country feel of the papers, but just never had the image to use with it. But I think that a dancing cow works well with it. I found a simple gingham ribbon to tie around the bottom. Other than that just some simple zig zag stitching. The paper has so much going on I think that it doesn't need much other for embellishments. I love that scalloped grass paper, I cut out one level and paired it up with the cloud paper for the perfect farming background paper!

I think I am going to do a little more dancing around myself now... I am so thrilled to be joining the High Hopes Divas! And getting to play with the fabulous HH images! You know they have more than one fabulous donkey images right?  OH you may want to visit the High Hopes Challenge blog and see my other new fellow Divas and the fabulous team we are joining!

So what are you doing this great Sunday? Me...  breakfast out with the locals. Then home and some outside time with some of the animals. A little quality taming time with the first few kitties that arrived yesterday... and then I think the afternoon - some baseball watching on tv and crafting.... that sounds like a great afternoon to me! Lets hope it works out that way :0)

Have a great day!
HUGS and
