High Hopes - Water Water everywhere!

Howdy -

Every have a project you are working on and it just doesn't seem that it is meant to be? This card has had those troubles. I started working on my card Saturday evening... Was doing a paper piecing part of the image. Glued down the large section and went to let the dogs out - well it moved in me getting up and well... Her raincoat was off 1/4 inch. So I was tired, and just let it go for the night. Sunday we were gone all day, too late home. Yesterday I sat down to finish it, and re did the entire image new paper piecing. Went to do some high lighting around the paper piecing with a Viva Decor pen... darn thing exploded all over the image!!! Sigh...

So I just stamped her again and decided to just color her. Then while coloring her a rain storm moved over us... yep... power went out. Finally got it back and went back to work. After I was done and set up to take her photos... camera battery was dead. I am not kidding!!! LOL It was getting a little creepy funny by this time!!

This is "April and Mr. Waddles" she is for this weeks High Hopes Challenge - Water Water everywhere!

I colored with my Copics (colors below) Found some papers by First Edition "Family Ties" paper pad. Cut out a few patterns. Edged them all in red topic and then wrapped around with a red satin ribbon.
I kept it simple. Honestly I was just plain done - It was a struggle with this one for me. LOL Just before I snapped my photos though I decided the water needed a bit of bling to it. So I VERY carefully stickled it up.

Close up of the "rain water"

Inside is same as the front with same papers. 

Now you might notice that there is no sentiment on the front and nothing in the inside. Couldn't think of anything that would work. So I just left it. Maybe I'll need a card for a just note... 

Here are the copies - 

 Happy with how it all came out, but man it was a struggle!!

Today we are taking Hubby's "new to us" Jeep into town and get the oil and everything checked out. He is so happy with his "new" jeep. I'll try and post a photo this week for you to see. It is really adorable, but he hates when I say that. Have one on my phone... but not sure I want to tempt fate and upload it right now. Better get this post done for the challenge and checked off my list. Show off the toy in a day or so.

Have a great one!
