High Hopes Project of the Month - September

I made this card today using the stamps from High Hopes Project of the Month. Throughout the month of September these 4 fun stamps are sold as a set with 25% off their normal price. (The High Hopes website is still currently showing the August special but this will be updated very soon). These stamps are just perfect for boy cards, party invitations and gift bags. I just loved these dream street papers too and a little chopping up helped me create the perfect scene.

I have been so lucky again and received the 'Javablu' award from Mumur and Sanne. Thank you both so much.

Before I go I just wanted to let you know that my friend Barb has some wonderful blog candy and is giving you the chance to win the most magical Santa stamp.

Gift Bag details
Stamps: High Hopes Max the magnificent, Sammy seal, Bag of popcorn & saying, "You're a class act"
Medium: Prismacolor Pencils, Sansodor and Paper Stumps, Stickles
Ink: Memories
Paper: Dream Street and Bazzill
Embellishments: Ribbon, Brads and Ticket (thank you Heidi)
