High Hopes Challenge - Anything High Hopes!

Howdy -

Today is time for the High Hopes Challenge - last one for the year. And so it is an easy one to handle.... Anything High Hopes! For me I went for cold.

You see this past weekend we did a small town market days. An OUTDOOR show. Sunday's weather was beautiful... but Saturday - well it was MISERABLE! Cold and the wind was blowing 20-30 MPH. Ever try to sit under a tent with a booth filled with antiques bundled up like that kid from the Movie "A Christmas Story" and looking a blimp with layers of clothing on. Then the wind kicks up and you are trying to move fast hold on to the tent and not have anything fall over an break. Yea.. I was pretty comical. By the time the show ended that evening... 12 hours out in the cold wind had done me in! So when I sat down to work on my card after the show the first image that popped out at me was the penguin sitting on a block of ice. That is how I felt... LOL

Here is my cold card -

So my images are  - Just Chillin' - Cool Claude - and the sentiment Cold Outside.  I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then the ice and snow have stickles to give them that icy bling. My papers are from My Minds Eye Found Christmas collection. I used white and red card stock for matting. A sheer ribbon and bow. Then 6 red buttons. I love this color combo -

and the copics used -

Was a fun card and I was trilled to make it.... inside heater on and an extra small electric heater on my feet... finally I can feel them again! LOL

Now you pop over to the High Hopes Challenge Blog and see all the DT cards. Then join us! ANYTHING High Hopes!!

Have a wonderful weekend. We are going to see some old friends for lunch today and then get some hay for the kids... maybe finish up Christmas shopping. We are doing many bought presents this year, except for the children. Taking Hubby today, that may not be the smartest thing for a little youth shopping as he gets a bit lost in toy stores.. LOL

I wanted to also say thank you for all the wonderful comments and well wishes for our missing fur baby Niner. We still have no idea where he is, and still find ourselves looking constantly for him.  He had to have been stolen and I can only pray that he has a nice home inside and is happy and taken care of..... Thank you again for being such wonderful support for us.

Have a great day -
HUGS and

Ha! I can relate to that penguin. :) I am not much for cold weather. So much for living in IA... maybe we should retire to the south. Yeah right! Never gonna happen as long as there are Grandkids close by. :) Have a terrific Tuesday. hugs....

Love your card! I love to craft with paper but have gotten more into digital stuff. Still pull out the paper every now and then when I have time. Just wish I had more time! =)
