High Hopes - Celebrate Something!

Howdy! First... we didn't get as much rain as they said we would. Darn it! We got just enough to get the ground slightly wet. Then by mid morning the sky was clear and sunny. That was nice but really I wanted a entire Sunday of rain... needed it. Maybe next time.... Sigh... Don't you hate me whining about rain? Life of having animals and needed hay.

Today is all about Celebrating though - High Hopes Challenge today is asking for a card to show off celebrating something - anniversary, birthday, graduation.. whatever as long as you are celebrating!

Me I will do some serious celebrating when Spring is officially here, love spring when everything is growing and blooming!

Here is my card -

This is one of my first and favorite High Hopes images. This is Miss Marissa. I love her! She is just so darn cute, and I adore her large flower. I have always popped the flower. This time I decided I would just color her and let it go... then at the very end I went and stamped another one and popped it. LOL

I really had a ton of fun with all the bright colors and flowers... maybe went a little too much with the flowers? So the papers are from Blank Canvas. With mats from Core'dinations White wash card stock.. all though I used the colored side not the white wash side :0).  The die cuts - vines from Whimsy, and flowers from Memory Box. Some added lace, and then my sentiments. Celebrate is a cheap $1.00 stamp from Michaels. The fabulous "Take time to Smell the Flowers" is a High Hopes Sentiment.

Here is the card from the side so you can see the POP...

You will have to peek at the inside in this photo too as I forgot to take a photo of the inside, and the Copic colors used, sorry was watching a good movie and just got side tracked :0)

So what will you be Celebrating? Common you need a card - use a High Hopes image and join us at the challenge! Common we want record people to join us this week! Celebrate!!!

Whats up in your house today? We are working today... me on estate collections Hubby on mowing and the farm.... normal day around here. It is a good thing though.. normal is nice.

Have a great day -
Hugs and

Ahh Spring, can it ever come soon enough! It has rained so much here the creeks and streams are running over. Gravel roads are like bogs. But the snow was still here and frost in ground so it really pooled up. We REALLY needed it after the drought. Hope for a better year.
LOVE the card. Fresh and fun, hugs....

Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers
