Howdy - Today is Tuesday and this Tuesday is the High Hopes Challenge. We have a bit of Stripes and Dots going on today. It was a good thing that this was a tad bit easier challenge as it has really been a busy past few days. Old Neighbors were in town visiting us. And all though we had a million laughs and enjoyed every second they were here... I was a bit behind on what I normally do in my schedule. So yesterday was catch up, and I allowed one hour to make this card. Stressing yes, but I seriously had very little time. But I figured that Stripes and Dots could all fall together, and with a great image it all did!
I had some fun with one of the new Senior Moments images - This is "Fisherman Fred"-
Love this guy for so many "guy" card subjects. He is colored with Copics (colors below) I matched up with colors with the paper pad FarmHouse "Paper Skies". Great for manly cards. I found a stripe and a dot for the challenge and then a solid. I paired them all up with kraft card stock. A brown satin ribbon around the middle, three buttons and the sentiment. - which is from High Hopes Stamps as well! You can find it HERE. Love it!
Here is the inside... simple with same papers.
And my Copic colors -
Man cards are usually really tough for me. More of a bling and flowers kind of gal. But I got this one done in just over an hour. And it all went together really pretty easily.
Now you know you can do some stripes and dots. So pull out a High Hopes image and join us at the challenge! WE really would love it if you would join us at The High Hopes Challenge!
Must run now - Hubby and I are suppose to have lunch with some old co-workers of mine today, then home to hopefully work on the chicken coop. The Guineas are ready for their new home. They are so BIG! Chicks are still a little to young.. growing but still small.
Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday -
