High Hopes Challenge - Outdoors!

Howdy  -

We are heading Outdoors for our challenge today at High Hopes! Yep as long as your project shows the outdoors in some way we are happy. And many of my favorite High Hopes stamps are animals and the outdoors. I started to reach for one of those top favorites and then decided to go deeper in my box of High Hopes Stamps and pull out a stamp that I haven't used in a long time.

Don't you love "Mike on a Vine?"

He is just DE-VINE! he he he - The sentiment is also from High Hope -  "You're Simply De-Vine!" is perfect for Mike on a Vine  - I colored with Copics (colors below) Then I found some older papers from My Minds Eye - with two colors of card stock - brown and a greenish blue. I sewed all the layers down. Then I started to look at flowers or flourishes for the corner... just didn't feel right - so I pulled out another older High Hopes stamp "Banana Tree" colored it with the same Copic colors and then cut it out and used it as an embellishment. Like that! Different too... and I like that the card is still flat for mailing.

Here is the inside with scraps -

And then the Copic colors used -

Now you can hop or swing on over to the High Hopes challenge blog and see all the DT's Outdoor cards for inspiration and they please do join us for a chance to win some new stamps!!

Might be a long day today... one of those waiting for the satellite repair guy days... sometime between 8-12 and if he will be later he will let me know.... sigh... maybe a day to color a little? Wouldn't want to get into a big project and have to stop for him right? So some nice craft work sounds good to me.

Have a wonderful day -
HUGS and
