High Hopes Hullaballoo Day 1!

Isn't this stamp such a cutie? This is one of the new images from the High Hopes new release this Sunday, 19th April. I just love this Mama bug with her sweet little baby bug peeking out of the pram. Crissy the Artist for High Hopes has a real treat in store for you and there are so many wonderful images she has drawn in this release. The papers are My Minds Eye and are from the Magnolia collection. I cut the sentiment out using SU word window punch and popped it up on foam pads. Image coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend.

Here are the links to the other Diva's who are joining in the Hullaballoo today... Hop on over and take a peak at their gorgeous creations.


Before I go I just wanted to thank Anne and Joy for the above award. You are both so sweet and thank you so much for thinking of me.

See you Saturday with another sneak peak.

Hugs,
