Happy Sunday! I am hosting this weeks High Hopes Challenge and this week i'm asking that you create a Christmas card which must not use traditional Christmas colours. So basically keep red and green to the minimum!!!

If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a fabulous selection over in my store - Bunny Zoe's Crafts. I ship worldwide too!!!

Have a great Sunday! Gary and Zoe are off to whack a few balls soon at the driving range. Grocery shopping later as the cupboards are bare and then hopefully a little colouring time later :-)
