High Hopes Challenge #14


Hello and Happy Friday!

This weeks High Hope Challenge is to make a card for a boy or "dude"! This means no cute flowers etc. Smiley from millan.net To play it safe, I made my card for a young boy, I think it is a bit easier to win kids over with googly eyes. *lol* After I was finished with my card, I asked my 11 yr. old son for his opinion. All he said was "it's alright"! Well...this is his favorite word right now and since his facial expression didn't turn to one of horror Smiley from millan.net ...I guess I'm safe. *lol*



Card Details Smiley from millan.net
stamp and sentiment- High Hope Rubber Stamps (Greetings from the gang), c/s PTI, SU and Cut Card Stock Co., DP SU's now retired Summer Picnic, inks Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers. To embellish my card I used googly eyes (Impress rubber stamps), jumbo red brads, SU's round tab punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, extra fine glitter, paper piercing and ribbon.

Have a super fun Friday and thank you for stopping by! Smiley from millan.net

Oh this is fabulous, I love the bright colours and the wiggly eyes look great. Have a good weekend.
I got my mini photographic studio from Ebay but I know that Amazon sell them as well. I am planning on playing it with it over the weekend to try and figure out how to get the best results!! Will keep you posted as to how I get on.
