Howdy! Tuesday and today is the High Hopes Challenge! Today it is all about two - we want to see two by two on your card. Two people or Two animals. Whether there are two on one image or if you use two images.
Now this card - I won't lie... it took me about 7 hours to make. Not that it was hard, or had a million steps. Nope... I am sick - and moving in very slow motion. I have a cold. Boo Hoo. A really nasty one, that is making me miserable. Hubby and I were talking and I don't remember having a cold like this in years. I hate colds. You feel yucky but you keep saying it is only a cold I should be able to do my normal life it is only a cold. And yet... you have no energy to do anything. Oh wait... I did fold a load of laundry too! That one load of laundry and then my card that was my entire day yesterday. Maybe today will be better.
Ok want to see my card? I have a good friend with a birthday with a birthday later in the week so this card was made with her in mind. And I of course had to have a donkey on it :0)
I believe I have told you before. Brayden the donkey was my first High Hopes Stamp - He was the reason I went to the site - a lead to a new donkey stamp. And then I fell in love with all their stamps and they had other donkey stamps too! So we all know how much I went nuts for High Hopes... :0) So Brayden is special for me - and I teamed him up with Ally Rose - she is so precious. She needed something to sit on, so I used my hay bale. That stamp is so useful! Then cuz I just had too because of the special birthday... I added a Chocolate Cake too! It is actually the three candle cake... but I made it chocolate cuz it just sounded good to me.
Everything colored with my Copics (colors below) I added glaze to the icing, and Viva Decor glitter to the other areas of the cake and candles. My papers are FarmHouse - The corner die is a new Whimsy die. I added three buttons tied with twine. The Sizzix Happy Birthday Die sentiment. It really went together really easy... I was just slow in processing it mentally. LOL
The inside - same papers -
The Copic Colors -
This is such a fun challenge so I do hope you will join us at the High Hopes Blog! You can win some High Hopes for yourself!!! Trot on over to the blog and see the other DT cards ok?
So what are you up to today? Me... I am waiting to see if my brain is going to plug in - then I will see what I am capable of today. I do know that we need to go and get Nally from the vet this morning. Nally is one of our outside dogs.
Yesterday morning Hubby went out to do the breakfast feedings when she came up to him. With a nasty huge gash on her shoulder... and then a couple of small cuts on the top of her head. He called me out to see her. And asked what I thought.... I thought the same as him. She had gotten into it with another dog... more than likely a coyote! And the vet agreed as well. Sigh... We are really having a horrible time with them. And Nally and the other two outside dogs have deserved T-bone steaks the last couple of weeks! They have saved the goats more than once. Hubby has found them twice standing between a very large coyote and the goats with all teeth showing. Protecting our family I would say. They really are wonderful dogs... very happy dogs. But Nally she must have had to do more than growl. So she spent the night at the vets. She is doing great and it wasn't too bad of injury. But we didn't' want to take any risk, so she got to sleep in a cushy bed in the warm vets to make sure it was ok. We will have to pick her up today - then take her back to get stitches out in a couple of weeks. She is gonna get extra servings of canned food this week I am thinking... such a sweet dog.
Then after that, I'll see if I can handle more... maybe a nap - yes a nap sounds like about what I can handle. LOL
