High Hopes Challenge - Birthday Cards!

howdy -

This week at High Hopes Challenge it is an always needed challenge. Birthday Cards! Don't know about you but I am always short on Birthday Cards -

I took this challenge as a chance to make one for the guys too.. I love the new images from the new release. I know I know I have said that more than once. But these stamps just really made me smile - Makes me think of Hubby and some of his friends -

So I used the new "Bait Shop" image and "Casey's Catch" Love them so much they are too fun! And perfect for that guy who needs a card. I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then cut them out.

I found some OLD papers in my stash from October Afternoon called Campfire - perfect for these images. I created another easel card. I get on a roll with them and make a few then go back to regular cards... LOL - I sewed down the layers with straight stitches and zig zag stitches. I wrapped some twine around the top of the card and then attached the same fishes from Casey's Catch.... was going for the look like they were on a fishing line.. not to sure I pulled that off.. LOL

Then I took Casey and created a fold at the bottom and attached him to the bottom of the card. I like the way it looks like he is walking out in front of the Bait Shop.

Here is a close up -

And my Copics used -

Make sure an click on over to the High Hopes Challenge and see all the Birthday cards - then please join us!! You will have a chance to win some High Hopes images of your own to play with!

Ok.. now to see if I can find the bottom of the laundry hamper... and while things are washing and drying... some coloring! Love Muli-Tasking!

Have a great day -
