High Hopes Challenge 5 - Sketch by Katharina!

Our new challenge has just started over at the High Hopes blog. This week we have a great sketch for you to follow from the very talented Katharina!

Well what great timing as my yummy new pile of rubber arrived yesterday. Thank you Tina for your generosity! You are the best!

Well with so much rubber to chose from I picked the very cute Huggable Hank! I have stamped just one of the words from the High Hopes sentiment "Hugs and hugs".

Once my card was together I had a small peace of the design left from the Daisy Bucket paper which was perfect for my handmade stamp.

Hope you are having a great Sunday. It is bucketing down here today and doesn't look like it's going to give in just yet.

Don't forget to enter my Pink Blog Candy if you haven't entered yet. More importantly please take the cute penguin image and link from my blog to help spread the word of Breast Cancer Awareness. I want to thank those of you who have already made gorgeous Pink cards... keep them coming!

Hugs,

Technique: Prismacolor Premier Pencils with sansodor and Paper Stumps for blending.
