High Hopes Challenge 12 - Torn Edges

Yay, I'm back at last with a card to show you! Here is my card for this weeks High Hopes challenge where Crissy is asking you to use tearing somewhere on your card. Well as I have just recovered from a virus and with so much going around I thought it only appropriate that I use this cute High Hopes stamp "Seymore's Sick Day!" This adorable character can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts and they have a fabulous range of High Hopes stamps. The "Get Well Soon" sentiment is also from High Hopes. I stamped the sentiment in two parts so it would fit nicely on the SU tab punch. Don't forget that if you enter our challenge you have a chance to win some yummy HH stamps!

I have received some awards over the last couple of weeks:

Thank you dear Lim, Heike and Karin for passing the above award to me.
Thank you to Fi for the above award.
Thank you to Maria and Ruby for the above award.
And the last award is from Jamie.

Thank you so much to you all for thinking of me.

Have a great Sunday and see you Tuesday with our first "A Spoon Full of Sugar" challenge of the year!

Stamps: High Hopes "Seymore's Sick Day and "Get Well Soon" sentiment

Hi, I absolutely adore your cards and in particular the colouring in of your stamped images.
I am going to get myself some Prisma colouring pencils soon and I just wondered whether you have any tips? You seem to be pretty expert in using them.
