High Hopes Challenge - Good enough to Eat!

Yay, it's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at the High Hopes blog!

This weeks challenge is hosted by our talented gal Jeanne. Jeanne's has a tasty challenge for us this week called - Good Enough to Eat. She would like you to create a food related card or project. Take that any way you want.... food image, recipe cards, whatever! :-)

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this challenge will receive the below stamp - Summer's Sweetness as featured on Jeanne's beautiful card this week.

When I see Jeanne's challenge I knew straight away that I wanted to use Mildred as she is one of my many favourite High Hopes stamps. Even better when my delivery of Kaisercraft arrived Friday I quickly grabbed the Tea at Elsies Paper Pad for my stash. The colours in this paper pad are just gorgeous and full of pretty designs. This is the first time I have used Kaisercraft paper and was really impressed by the variety and textures of papers in the collection. There are also 4 pages of handy die-cuts which are perfect for cardmaking.

Mildred has been coloured with Copic markers with a little Prisma pencil to finish. I have also added some of my favourite flat back pearls... I just feel my card is never quite finished with out them.

If your looking to purchase High Hopes stamps I have a fantastic selection over in my store.

Don't see the High Hopes stamp you are looking for in my store?
I am placing an order with them in the next few days so send me an email and i'll add it to my order :-)

Have a wonderful Sunday!
