High Hopes Challenge 46 - It's our Birthday!!!

Happy Sunday!!! I am so excited to tell you we are celebrating our Blogoversary at the High Hopes Challenge Blog!!! Wow, can you believe we have been running our challenge blog now for 1 year!!! Wooo Hooooo!!!

Lots more celebrations going on within our team too - Happy Birthday to Danielle for yesterday and also to Ying for tomorrow!!!

Our lovely sweet Diva Ying is hosting our challenge today too and would love to see lots of Birthday cards!!! Now no excuses not to join in... how easy it that!

We have a super prize this week and our lucky winner will win this wonderful set below which includes: Party Cat, Party Donkey, Party Hat, Three candle cake and sentiment Party Animal.... just perfect for your birthday creations!

Now a little about my card :-) The cute image used is Swinging Sherry. The Have a ball! sentiment is also High Hopes. My 9 year old daughter Zoe loves this stamp as she plays golf with Dad and has her own set of golf clubs. Sherry is stamped in Memento and coloured with Prismacolor pencils using sansodor and paper stumps to blend. You knew that ;-)

The beautiful papers are from the Basic Grey Wisteria 6x6 paper pad. Other products used are Prima Country Elegance flowers - Violet, Button from the Sugarplum collection and of course one of my favourite's... flat backed pearls in Kiwi and Pale blue.

Oh and I mustn't forget that I used the awesome sketch created by Jeanette for Friday Sketchers. Thanks Jeanette!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
