High Hopes Challenge 50 - All about kids

nikkiswingingshannoncard

Our host this week over at the High Hopes challenge is our talented Diva Danielle. Danielle's challenge is called All about kids. She would love to see kid images or cards created with kids in mind. High Hopes have the cutest kid characters!

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps. If your looking to add some to your collection I have a great selection at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the below cute stamp - Heidi and Madison.

For my card I used the sweet image Swinging Shannon. I can't believe this cutie hadn't been inked before. I was dying to use the new Basic Grey Nook and Pantry papers. These are available in handy 6x6 pads over in my store. I stamped Shannon and then cut her out using a circle nestabilities. I didn't ink up the rope which is part of the stamp design so I could add the string for some fun texture. I have added some pretty Lemon Raffia Lace for some added texture. I added half back pearls to the corners of my card in yummy chocolate and cappuccino.

Taking the kids to see Ice Age 3 this morning at kids club. The girls are on holiday now for the next week so need to think of some fun activities to keep them amused.

Have a great Sunday!

Hugs,
