A Cow Says....Thank-you???

Good morning, and welcome to Wednesday! Boy, do I wish the days would slow down...I have so much to do! I'm looking forward to this weekend, as we will be setting up our Christmas tree. I just love this time of year. My husband is convinced that he motivated others on our street to turn on their lights, as he put ours on last week. lol I came home from volleyball last week to see our house shining like a beacon...the only beacon!

So, this morning I've got a card that I made for the High Hopes Challenge this week. It's a recipe challenge 3-2-1...3 flowers, 2 brads and 1 sentiment! I inked up my brand new Party this stamp! I have a few other items she can be holding too, but thought it would be fun to have her presenting some flowers as a thank you gift. The flower stamp is also from High Hopes. I wanted to keep this card fairly simple. I also stretched myself on this one...I don't usually do such bright colour combos! But this cow is just so happy, that she needed a bright and cheery background. These papers are from a small pack I picked up at Winners...seriously, you need to keep an eye on their scrapbooking section because sometimes they get great items in there! Unfortunately, I cannot remember the company name!

I wasn't sure that my stamped flowers would count for the recipe, so I layered three flowers and added a little rhinestone centre. The two brads are holding my sentiment, which is from a Popcorn the Bear stamp set. Check it out...that sentiment is cut out with my brand new Labels 8!!! I have been wanting this set for so long, and finally picked it up from Skribbles n Scraps in Sarnia. This is such a simple recipe to follow that you have no excuse! If you have a High Hopes image, then hop on over there and play along! As always, I stamped my images on Neenah Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know you were here so I can pop by your blog and see what you've been up to!
