High Hopes - Double Trouble

Howdy -

This week the challenge over at High Hopes is Double Trouble. And that simply is to either make two cards the same... or to use two of more stamps on your card. Now, time has been really short this week, so only one card from me and it was a quick late night yesterday working on it. That is the first excuse, second excuse... Hubby has been using my desk to repair some antique dolls for me. Don't know how your husband works on projects, but well... mine is a mess. And my desk has been covered in paint, putty, doll parts, string... you name it. Not to mention the piles of my things from crafting, and eBay items so the desk is really piled high right now! He is really helping me repairing some dolls that need some TLC, but I needed my desk! So I scooted over everything and worked in a tiny little 6 inch square... oh my it has been a long time since I have had to work like that. I can't complain he is doing it for me. But well guess I just did... oops.

How about my card -
I used two stamps.. well actually three...

Herbies Heifer and then Sign Post with Happy Spring sentiment. Love that sign post.. need to use it more, has so many good sentiments, and you can use lots of other stamps with it.

I had my scrap box sitting close so I dug for some papers that went with the images - colored with Copics...

I used a ribbon with reds and greens in it. And then buttons. I have really been on a button kick lately. Which is good I need to use up some of the thousand that I have collected.

Now you need to pop over to the High Hopes Challenge and see all the DT work, and then please do join us! A chance to win some High Hopes for yourself! We really would love to see you there!

Off to see about finding more of my desk and cleaning up a bit.... later this week he will be using my air compressor to paint the doll parts (insert scared face here) I have been "suggesting" that he spray in a box to help with overspray... oh man I hope that works out... otherwise I may need to redecorate to match the peach flesh color he will be using. LOL !

Have a great day -
HUGS and

Adorable card. Love the sign!
I always tend to have a messy work table and find myself with only a small space to work. Can't blame DH. I do however blame him for the piles of stuff on the kitchen counters and table. Just enough room for plates between stacks of mail, hats, tools, etc...
