High Hopes Challenge #15



Happy Saturday Everyone!

I can't believe that so many days have flown by since my last post. I tell ya', while making a card Monday afternoon; my "mojo" completely deserted me!!!! Talk about frustration! Normally I can put a card together in about 30 Min's. However, if I'm on the same card after an hour or so; I realize that my creative thoughts have deserted me. In order to save myself from wrecking more paper etc. I had to abandon my craft room for a few days. Finally inspiration returned to me and I managed to pull a card together for High Hopes Heart Challenge.



The stamp is from High Hopes and the sentiment is from Amuse. The card stocks are from the Cut Cardstock Co. and PTI. The design paper is from Three Bugs In a Rug and I colored my image with Copic Markers.
To embellish my card, I sewed the top mat and used my Cricut Expression (Plantin Schoolbook cartridge) to cut the hearts, flowers and grass. The flowers are embellished with small pearls and I used my hand held heart punch for the tiny hearts around the sentiment.

Have a fantastic weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs


Risa

Hey Risa!! It's good to step away from the crafting once in a while. I tend to make my cards in parts. . .5 minutes here, 10 minutes there, etc. I'm just that sort that I can't sit and make a card in one sitting or I start to get a headache!! LOL!

Well, your card turned out fabulous. It don't look like any mojo was lost on this one. That elephant. . .she is so feminie. . never imagined an elephant on tip-toes!! LOL!

As always, your card is so pretty, your coloring lovely and I love all the awesome details!!
