High Hopes 200th Challenge Blog Hop

Today is the 200th Challenge for High Hopes Rubber Stamps. For over 7 years the team has been creating some amazing samples using High Hopes stamps. It has been a wonderful journey.  Therefore, we are celebrating with a Blog Hop. There will 3 prizes provided by our Sponsors (Stamp and Create, Bunny Zoe's Crafts, and One Crazy Stamper) along with High Hopes Rubber Stamps.   Thank you Lacey for asking me to join in the fun today! 

You should start at the top of the Blog Hop at the High Hopes Blog.  If you did not begin at the top, we suggest you back now so that you do not miss a stop. You should have arrived here from the fabulous Michelle O's Blog.

As you hop along each stop, you will find a clue at each stop. Collect each clue to create a phrase. When you are done with the hop, leave a comment including the finished phrase to be entered into the drawing for one of the prizes. 

The Clue for my stop is: Our Designs

In addition, there is another chance to win 1 Free High Hopes Stamp by entering the challenge. Create a card or project using the challenge theme and link your project to the link on the challenge blog. You can participate in the challenge without doing the blog hop (which will enter into the drawing for 1 Free High Hopes stamp). You can also participate in the Blog Hop without entering the challenge (which will enter you in the drawing for the chance at one of the 3 sponsor's prizes). 

The challenge theme is: Use your favourite High Hopes stamp

(You MUST use a High Hopes stamp to enter the challenge)

Here's a little info about my card:
