High Hopes Challenge - Water

I can't believe this month is going so quickly and just over 3 weeks and the girls will be back at school... time to start thinking about buying their new uniform... I hate that it is in the stores before they have even finished for Summer but better not leave it too late!

Ok, back to my card which is for this weeks new High Hopes Challenge. Our topic this week is water so I coloured up a Dustin Pike Image - Mer-Cat. The bright papers are from the Paper Pad SEI Jocelyn.. oh I love these wacky colours! My Mer-Kitty is coloured with Copic Markers and then a little Prismacolor Pencil to finish. I added a little stickles stardust.

Hope you can play along with us... remember each challenge you get the chance to win a High Hopes stamp of your choice! If your looking to purchase High Hopes Rubber Stamps I have a great selection in my store.

Have a great evening!

Hugs,

Hiya Nikki, wonderful card, those papers are fab. Love your layout, but my fave part has to be the buttons and beads!!!!

Sadly I'm one of those who buy the uniforms before the children break up for the summer hols!! Just need to get tights! I even buy it a size bigger if I catch it in the sales for the following year lol!! I have a suitcase full of summer clothes for the girls for next year which I've picked up in the sales already(I think I'm addicted!).

I want the hols to start slowing down now, just know they are going to whizz by, which means back to work for me to ;0(

Hope you are all keeping well,

Great Mer-Cat card! And you must consider you as a lucky mom, because in Holland the school starts tomorrow. I wished they had a longer vacation.

Hi Nikki, not sure about a cat mermaid but youve created a really stunning card with it, even if you do say the colours are wacky, it certainly goes with the wacky cat. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx
