High Hopes Challenge 4 - Anything but!


This week over at the High Hopes Challenge blog we would like you to make anything BUT a card!! It can be a box, an altered project, a gift bag, a treat bag, a framed piece, anything your little heart desires.....just NOT a card!!

I have made a gift box using my Scor-Pal. Wow, these are just so easy to make and I will certainly be making more of these. You can find the instructions here.

The two stamps used on my gift tag are part of this months High Hopes offer. For the whole of October you can buy the fabulous set below at 25% off! For further details and more inspiration from my talented designer friend Kimmie click here.


Before you go pop on over to
Jeanne's blog. She has a real treat for all High Hopes fans and has a wonderful write up about the owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps Tina and an interview with the incredibly talented Crissy Armstrong. If you leave a comment on Jeanne's post you will also be in with a chance to win her yummy candy too! There is also more inspiration to be found and she has made two very gorgeous cards.

Don't forget that our Diva candy hop continues and one of our other Diva's also has some sweet stuff. Use the links provided on the right of this post and get hopping!

Have a great Sunday!
Hugs,
