High Hopes Challenge

Happy Sunday! Today I have my card for this week’s High Hope Challenge to show you. The theme this week is a Father’s day or masculine card. I created this one for my dear hubby. One of his favorite ways to relax to go down to the river where we live (it is about a 5 minute walk) and go fish. Lately, my two older sons have started to go with him. I don’t know how relaxing it is anymore but it is certainly a time that they all enjoy!

OMGosh! As I look at this photo, I realize that I didn’t color in his little bobble at the end of his line. Has this ever happened to you? I am so sorry about that. I will have to go and color it after I post this! LOL!

Hi Janette love your card, I actually used the same image but mines not coloured half as well as yours. Please could you tell me how you did your fab cloudy sky. Thanks Julye

Danielle said...

Beautiful card Jeanette! I love your cloudy sky background - it's gorgeous! Great choice of papers too! And no, you're not the first to have 'forgotten' to colour a part of the stamp, lol!!!
Enjoy your Sunday!
Hugs, Danielle

Bien le bonjour,

Vraiment très jolie. Je vais m'en inspirer pour la carte des fêtes des pères pour papa. Pour faire le ciel, aviez-vous masqué votre dessin?

Passez une journée merveilleuse ;o)

Beautiful card! You colour so well! and yes I have forgotten to colour a small part of my card as well, but always manage to catch it before I gift it!

Kim said...

Absolutely beautiful Jeanette! And don't worry about not coloring the card still looking stunning even with no color there! :) Love it! The scene you have created (sky/water) is stunning hun!
hugs~ Kim

This is so cute, Jeanette! I just received this stamp and can't wait to ink it up!

What a lovely boy's card! I didn't forget to colour something, but I noticed after looking at my picture again that I coloured something wrong. I had already gave this card to someone, so I was feeling rather stupid about a month after it happened! Ow well, stuff happens :)

Lacey Stephens said...

Hey, it's just a white bobble!! LOL Yes, I've done that a few times!! And you're right..I don't know how relaxed your husband is with the boys with him!! I know Scott would go crazy trying to fish with Ryan (who would probably end up in the water trying to look as something closer)!!
Fantastic card! I love the cloud background, too!
