One card and a notebook

Happy Sunday! Whew! We had a great fun-packed day yesterday! The Narnia exhibit was wonderful. I won’t spoil any surprises for you but it was delightful. We all had our favorite parts of the exhibit!

We also went to the outdoor market I was talking about. I had a few emails asking my which one. It was the Atwater Market :) We bought so much yummy goodness and came home and prepared a gourmet feast! Which reminds me, I bought some yummy raspberries and tiny blueberries to make some muffins……..I better do it quick before they disappear!

This week the theme for the High Hopes Challenge is WATER! I pulled out my HH stamps and found this cutie who had yet to see ink! Then I searched for a sentiment to go with him. HH had the BEST little sentiments and sure enough, I found this one! Now I have the perfect little card to send to cheer someone up!

I went with a clean and simple layout but couldn’t resist adding the 4 little cross-stitches at the top. It just made that space a little less empty!

  • Stamps: High Hopes “ Finnigan”
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! Kraft, White, Black,  DP Cosmo Cricket Joyride
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: DMC black floss

I hope you can join our HH challenge this week! There is always a stamp up for grabs but “you gotta be in it to win it” as the saying goes!

I also have a little post-it holder to show you! The ATS Wednesday challenge is “die-cuts” so I thought I would take the opportunity to create this little holder. I used one of the GORGEOUS Sweet November mermaids! I added a ton of little gemstones to her hair…. I couldn’t resist!

These little holders are perfect for using up scraps of designer paper. You know….the little pieces that you can’t bear to throw away? I added a top cover of acetate to protect by cute image. You can see it folded back in the second picture.
