High Hopes Blog Hop and Release!!!

Yay, it's our blog hop and release day... hopefully you have just arrived here from Jeanne's blog but if you didn't pop on over to the High Hopes blog to start from the beginning. You won't want to miss out on the fun and prizes as 3 random Diva blogs will be chosen to pick a winner from their comments!!! What will they win? 4 Main Images and Sentiments/Accessories from the new release!!!

Now a little about my card.... The cool image is designed by artist Dustin Pike and is called Winter Fun Monkey. There are some awesome Monkey images in this release from Sir Dustin and also the fabulous Laurie Furnell. Winter Fun Monkey has been coloured with Copic Markers with a little Prisma Pencil and sansodor to blend. The papers are from the Crate Paper 6x6" Paper Pad Snowy Day. Other products I have used are: Nestabililites Ovals, Scalloped Ovals, Long Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle, Marianne D Finnish Ice Star Die, Martha Stewart Simple Snowflake Punch, Stickles Star Dust, 8mm Flat back Pearls and 3mm Gems.

My card has also been created for this weeks High Hopes Challenge - Party Animal and A Spoon Full of Sugar - Recipe. Tons of inspiration from both of these fabulous teams so be sure to check them out!!! I have also used the wonderful Sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Ok... don't want to keep you any longer ;-) ...... The next stop is the lovely Amy!!!

If your looking to purchase the new stamps be sure to pay me a visit at Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I ship worldwide and have all the new stamps in stock ready to ship!!!

Have a great Wednesday!

Hugs,
