High Hopes - Anything Goes - HOGWASH

Howdy - Today would have been my Grandma's Birthday. Sure miss her. I was pretty close to my Grandma. Been told many times I am a lot like her. Most of the time I take as a compliment, other things... well anyway - I realized yesterday though that this would have been her 101st birthday. Wow - isn't it just amazing how long ago that was, but in the grand scheme of things it isn't that long ago at all. I look at photos of my Grandma when she was young, posed on top of a model T Ford or in her Flapper dress and I realize how much the world has changed. Ok, that is all of my deep thoughts for now.. better get to my card - Happy Birthday Grandma -

Today is the High Hopes Challenge and this week is an easy peasy one! Anything Goes!! So just pull out any High Hopes image and then have fun! For me I had a High Hopes image that I had not gotten a chance to ink up and it was just driving me nuts! So Whoo Hoo... it now has been inked!


No Really...

As soon as I saw this image I giggled. Why? I don't know four  pigs in a tub taking a bubble bath, just makes me giggle. LOL It is called "Good Clean Fun" You know you love it too don't you? Had lots of fun coloring up this one. Copics to color ( below are the colors ) Then I went back with lots of Viva Decor Sparkles and then Dimensional Glaze for my water - My papers are all from First Edition, called Spring Drop. Love the pretty colors. Some of the papers have a shiny or glitter glaze to them. Pretty... And my mat is core'dinations sanded. I sewed the layers together, cut out my image with an oval nestie, but I made sure to cut out the shower head first so it would pop up above the oval.

Close up of the piggies in the tub so you can see all the "wet" look and sparkles. :0) 

Inside of the card - Same papers - layered. With a sentiment from High Hopes to match the image -

Hog Wash! great High Hopes sentiment!

Here are my Copic colors used -

Was a gorgeous day here yesterday - actually got up into the 80's!! I am so ready for full time Spring to hit! So So tired of wind and cold. Ready to have WARM SUNNY WEATHER! How about you? I know I complain and I don't really deal with much winter at all here in Texas. But I am not a cold weather person in the least. Heck don't like Hot summer either... LOL Spring and Fall those are my seasons. 

Well lots on our list today - so better get my groove on and get busy! 
Have a wonderful day
HUGS and-
