High Hopes Challenge

Wowzers...I didn't even realize that I haven't posted since Dec. 20th. Christmas was just so busy this year...and then when I came back, I got the flu. This is the first chance I've had to post all week. Hopefully I will be back to posting more regularly now!!

This week I decided to make a card for the High Hopes Challenge. The challenge was to use torn paper on your card. I decided to tear a frame around my image...was hoping it would look a little like a picture frame, but I'm not sure if it worked out that way.
Stamps: High Hopes - Lenny's love me nots, Hero Arts Anytime Messages
Inks: Memento, SU Creamy Caramel, SU Soft Sky, SU Certainly Celery, copics, prismacolor pencils and OMS and twinkling h20's.
Paper: Georgia Pacific cs, bazill cs, Basic Grey euphoria dp
Accessories: brads and lace from stash

Go and check out the High Hopes Challenge this week, the cards are amazing!! And be sure to try out this fun challenge!!

I just found out my Mother-in-law slipped on some ice today and broke her arm...or more specifically her elbow. She has to see a surgeon in Regina Tomorrow. I'm hoping that it's not too bad of a break, or she is going to need surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts for me!!

I hope you all have a great night, and I will be back on Tuesday with my Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge card!!
