High Hopes Challenge - Halloween Colors!

OOPs - my post on Sunday didn't show up did it? Sorry... I am not sure where it went - and I didn't have internet 99% of the day due to rain! Yes... RAIN! You know, that wet water stuff that falls from the ground - we got some really great rain this past weekend, and no internet was worth it - at least the Donkeys think so cuz it means they will have grass later in the month. So I will save the missing post and get it on this coming week -

Now for today's post. High Hopes Challenge today and this week it is Halloween colors. Black, Orange, Purple and Green. Now this was a really TOUGH challenge for me, I know I could have gone with a general card and used the colors - but I really did try to do a Halloween card with them. I am just not a Halloween holiday person, and when I went through my High Hopes stamps I realized that I did not have one stamp that was a true Halloween type of image, so I had to think outside the box a little... Here is what I came up with -

After looking  - The Medicine Man was the the best that I could find that looked like maybe he was wearing a costume. Maybe sort of? Hope so, I colored with my Copic's (colors below) then I cut out with a circle nestie - For my card I dug through and found some older halloween papers - Debbie Mumm's JoAnn papers I believe. I sewed down with a random stitch three patterns, then I found some super old Glitter Thickers for Trick or Treat -

The inside -

pretty much the same, but I colored the Medicine Man's Bubbling Brew for the inside - These images make a really adorable get well card, but I don't think they are too horrible for a Halloween...

Here are my Copic colors.

whew... got it done, as hard as it was I did finally pull it off! LOL Now I know you can make up a Halloween card or at least a card with the traditional colors - common you have a GREAT chance for winning stamps from High Hopes!!! So please jump on over and see the DT's really good Halloween cards, and then join the challenge! We would love to see what you come up with -

Today I am hoping to get lots of work done - I need to work on more auctions for Ebay - lots of goodies to put on, and we hopefully can make a trip to pick up the items we won at the auction on Saturday. Didn't get a lot of things really... but one big piece. I have NO idea where I am going to put it, as I have no room for a single piece of furniture! But that is the thing about auctions, they suck you in... this piece was going to be sold way way too cheap and I couldn't stand it... and then all of the sudden my number had the winning bid. LOL it is a really fabulous piece... I just really need to figure out what I am going move around or get rid of so I can bring in the new. I'll get photos to show you promise :0)

Have a great day -
HUGS and

You did great. Looking at my FIVE high hopes stamps I can NOT make a halloween card. So will have to settle with using the colors.
Your little caveman man / medicine man is kinda cute! hugs...
