High Hopes Challenge ~ Spots & Dots

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start! The weather is turning quite cool so I am going to have to get cracking if I want to harvest my basil leaves and make some pesto! This year, my basil plants grew to gargantuan proportions and we had fresh basil all summer long. Yum. I just love it. Today I am going to take pretty much the rest of it and turn it into pesto that I will freeze into tiny cubes to use all fall and winter long.

The High Hopes Challenge has moved to another day ~ Tuesdays! This week our challenge was given to us my the very sweet Debby is spots and dots and I knew right away what I wanted to do!

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 182

I colored this super sweet snowman “Snowman’s Cup of Love” based on the colors of my DP (again retired SU!) and then added the spotted background using the same colors. I just love the effect it gives! To make my snowman “pop” I outlined him with my C1 marker.  The ribbon is my Papertrey gingham. I just have a sweet spot for gingham!

I hope that you will get the chance to participate in our challenge! The random winner of this challenge can chose 3 High Hopes stamps of their choice!!! Not 1 but 3!!!
