High Hopes - Gate Fold Challenge

Howdy -

Today is Tuesday - Feels like Monday with the Memorial Day Holiday yesterday. But it is Tuesday and that is the High Hopes Challenge :0)  -

This week the challenge is to make a Gate Fold Card. Any kind of Gate fold card will work. Or you can try my Tutorial from last week. :0)

I made another one. I have been having fun with my Gate Fold with a scene card. I think it is because I get to use more stamps, and just spend lots of time coloring. I have really loved the calm time coloring lately. Needed it and really has helped me chill a bit. That on edge about to explode feeling goes away while coloring. Hubby would say do more coloring... LOL

Ok, so back to my card - These are some of my first High Hopes images -

First I guess I will just make a list of the stamps used - 

Told you I got to play with lots of stamps on this one!!! I won't go into all the instructions on how to make it, you can scroll down to last week for all of that. The only thing different is the pattern paper, I used Graphic 45 Bird Song papers. 

Oh and I masked off the background and stamped it twice for the inside. And Masked and stamped the leaves behind Monkey Mike. 

Here is the card opening up - 

And the inside -

Sorry I forgot to take my photo of my Copics - lets just make it easy and say almost every green, lots of browns and a few basics - ha!

Now its your turn! PLEASE head over to the High Hopes Challenge and join us in playing. This was my first Tutorial, I would love to have lots of activity for the challenge.... so please play this week ok?

And if you do make a card with my Tutorial... SHARE with me here the link. I would love to come and see your card!

Alrighty... back to work!! We have been doing Spring cleaning. It is such a great but horrible feeling to move furniture, pull out drawers and clean out!  Great cuz once it is done the house feels good and looks so much nicer. Horrible cuz I look at the stacks of junk and trash and Animal Hair and Dirt that is trapped under and behind furniture!! Oh my how does my house get that way! Oh yea... Hubby and I are not the most organized. (those that know us, please stop laughing now) And all the dogs, a cat, and we live here - and sometimes life just gets away doesn't it? Well things are all getting moved, dusted, cleaned and then put back to order. May take a while to do every room... but wow two rooms down, working on room three. Feels great!! And lots of garbage bags going out! And donation bags out! YEA!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!! Gonna go and get my broom and dust pan and get busy!

Your card is magnificient! Love it! Such a fun card! I just went through the house last fall and cleaned out every drawer and closet and took tons of stuff to the Goodwill. I cleaned every inch of this place. You mean I have to do it all over again? LOL

Gorgeous Card. The High Hopes stamps are so cute and the scene you have created with them is great. The design is very good and the sentiment inside the card is fun.

Darling card. I am looking forward to trying my hand on this challenge. Problem is, I do not think I have many images that will work together. Putting on my thinking cap...
