High Hopes Challenge

I was hoping to post this early this morning but we all slept in and I was volunteering at the school today so it was a mad dash to get us all out the door and get everyone where they were supposed to be on time! We (and when I say we I mean my husband) forget to set the alarm and I couldn't believe that the same 3 boys who are up at 6:30 AM on the weekend could still be sleeping at 7:55 AM!

This week, there is a really great sketch by Katharina for a rectangular card. It was fun to do and I already have ideas for another card using this sketch!

This was one of the first rubberstamps that I ever bought. I am a great tea lover and have converted my hubbie as well! Both my parents imigrated here from the UK so, as my sister says, we are probably as British as you can be without actually being British! So this Tea Angel was a perfect stamp for me to have.

  • Stamps: High Hopes
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Close to Cocoa
  • Paper: SU! Kraft, K & Co DP
  • Coloring: Koh-i-norr & OMS, H20
  • Embellies: K & Co butterfly, ribbon from stash, SU! brads

Gorgeous card Jeanette, love the fabulous colour scheme and embossing, Trish is also one of my favourite stamps and beautifully coloured as always. Isn't that always the way when you forget to set the alarm! Zoe is on half-term this week but still insists on being up at 06:30.. you'd think she'd make the most of it, Hugs, Nikki x
