High Hopes Stripes!

Howdy -
Brrrr… Is there anyone else out there that is ready for Winter to go away? And I heard that February might be worse! I hate cold nasty weather!! So I guess I am going to have to live in my imaginary world and color some spring happy cards until things change outside…

Today's High Hopes Challenge is Stripes. So I dug through my papers and found a country pillow ticking stripe paper - And then I pulled out one of my favorite new High Hopes images -

This is HERBIE -


I just love this one look how cute those chickens are too… LOL

I added the sentiments "Cluck " -  ok so I added it three times. My papers are from Authentique Pride collection - I sewed down each layer, found a piece of vintage velour ribbon, added some flowers and punches and done…

Well I did the inside too of course -


Copic colors used on the image -


I am having so much fun with these new farm images - so happy coloring them! Now you need to go and see more of the new images that the DT have been working with at the challenge blog - HERE, then join us with some stripes for a chance to win your own new High Hopes!!

What is on your schedule today? Suppose to go to lunch with Mom today… hopefully the ice will be gone when it is time to go. We don't drive on ice here in Texas you know. Hope we get to go… then home to work on some projects. Lots of crafty things working for the next couple of weeks.

Hope you have a great day!
HUGS and

What a great and joyful card. Over here it is also getting colder and it seems winter is coming (YUK). Today I have to work so no crafting :-( for me.
Hope you will enjoy your lunch.
Hugs, Helen
