Sandy Toes!

We have another fantastic colour/recipe challenge for you this week at High Hopes, brought to us by the fantastic Amy W!! She would like to see you use orange, brown and a circle on your creations this week! There are always terrific prizes up for grabs on the challenge blog, but you must use a High Hopes image to be eligible for the prize!

This week, I pulled out "Little Sand Architect" and this great summery sentiment called "Sandy Toes"! While I LOVE winter, I also understand that many people are just plain fed up with the snow. So, I thought I would make a card to cheer up those with the "winter blues"!! I love this image. Do you remember how much fun it was to make sandcastles? When having that sand between your toes was a good feeling?? lol I don't mind having dry sand between my's the wet clingy kind of sand that I don't enjoy! I distressed the edges of my papers and added some doodling around the borders. I also pulled out some metal corner pieces that I picked up at the Dollar store.
The image was stamped with Memento Ink on Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. I cut it out with my circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities.

If you do not yet own any High Hopes images, there are links to retailers on the blog. Several of our Divas also have online stores:

Amy Wegener - Stampin' Stuff based out of Australia
Nikki Fairbairn - Bunny Zoe's Crafts based out of the UK/Europe
Lacey Stephens - Stamp and Create based out of the US
Amy Leggate - Paper Romance based out of Canada

There are so many adorable images, and I know you will find something you love! The Divas are always excited to see what you've been busy making with your High Hopes stamps.

Our Diva Lacey has a special "challenge" posted on her blog here. You can also find a link to this challenge in my side bar. She knows a very special lady who is celebrating her 100th birthday very soon!! Can you image...100 years old! We would love to see her receive 100 cards for her birthday. Lacey is even offering up a prize for those who help her reach this goal! What a wonderful way to bless this special lady on a very special birthday.

God bless you all, and have a fantastic Sunday!
