High Hopes 100th Challenge Blog Hop

It’s time for High Hopes' 100th Challenge!! To celebrate, we have a Blog Hop complete with lots of prizes!

As you hop from stop to stop, make sure to leave comments because there is candy along the way.

You should have arrived from Niki Estes fabulous blog.

If you haven't, you will want to start at the top at the High Hopes Blog so you don't miss any stops along the way.


Did I mention the prizes?

The 1st prize is $100 retail value of unmounted or cling mounted High Hopes stamps!! WOW!!

The 2nd prize is $50 retail value of unmounted or cling mounted High Hopes stamps!!

And the 3rd and 4th prize is each

$25 retail value of unmounted or cling mounted High Hopes stamps!!

That's a lot of stamps at stake!!

In order to have a chance to win, you must leave a comment on each blog along the hop!!

The hop will remain open 12:00pm (noon) EST/5:00pm GMT Monday, Jan 17th

And the winner will be announced next Tuesday.

You may also notice that we have a few special guests joining us for this challenge!! A few of our Original Divas have returned for this special event. Make sure to say "hi"!!

Here is a little about my card. I have been dying to ink up this fabulous Dustin Pike image Xavier & Oliver... I have given Oliver rosey cheeks so think my sweet bear should be called Olivia! Xavier and Olivia ;-) have been coloured with copic markers with a little Prismacolor pencil and sansodor to blend. The cute sentiment is also High Hopes. I thought these papers from MME State of the Heart went perfectly with this image. The Iloveyou was also cut out from the papers. Other products used: Martha Stewart Doily Heart Edger Punch, Heart Pins and flat back pearls.

I won't keep you any longer... from here you will hop to the super talented Sirpa

I can't wait to see what everyone has created also!!! Have fun!!!

Hugs,
