Today is Tuesday so that means it is another High Hopes Stamps' Challenge! This week's challenge theme is "Birthday". Fortunately, my birthday "month of hell" is just about over, and I've survived all of the family and friends birthdays. There is only one more left before the end of the year.
Anyway, here is my challenge card for this week:
This is Elmer! Elmer comes by himself (and that is all the cute you need) but I needed to make him more "birthdayish" LOL So, I added some balloons from another stamp using my Stamp-a-majig and then drew (not very well I'm afraid) the strings so it looks as if they are tied to his trunk. The background (both "grass" and "sky" were sponged with distress inks (Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint). I popped up the balloons and sentiment circle with foam tape for a little dimension. Elmer and the balloons are colored with my colored pencils and oms. I matted him on navy blue card stock and done!
This was my final card as a "Guest Diva" at High Hopes. It was such an honor and a privilege to be able to be a part of such a wonderful group of people. You guys have been absolutely wonderful to me, and I can't thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your dynamic, talented team. Thanks Karen for recommending me! I had a blast!
I hope you get a chance to play this week. If not, at least go take a peek at the wonderful cards my "co-divas" created for this challenge. You can find them HERE.
Thanks all for coming by. I'll be seeing you (hopefully) for my Wednesday Evening Post tomorrow night. I have an incredible "Pic of the Week" to share with you then amongst other things.
Hugs to all of you. I hope you are all well and happy!
