Guest Designer for High Hopes stamps.

Over at High Hopes Stamps Challenge Blog This weeks challenge is to make a Thank you or a Thanksgiving card. Since I won a challenge I was asked to be a guest designer for this challenge. I chose to make a thank you card. Sometimes life gets so busy we take our friends  for granted. Maybe take some time to say thank you to your friends today or have lunch with someone special today. Just to let them know that you appreciate them!
I used a high hopes stamp,  Colored with copies, Bo bunny paper

For  those of you that just celebrated Thanksgiving I hope that you had a great long weekend and are  enjoying your leftover Turkey!!.

Birthday Card/High Hopes

 Seems that birthday just creep right up on me. I would love to make all my friends a birthday card but I work full time and have other things that need to be done before I can play in my scrapbook room!! 

This is one of my favorite High Hopes Stamps. Isn't he cute!!

The sentiment cracks me up every time I read it!! It says

"May the light always find you, 
on a dreary day.
When you need to be home,
may you find your way.
May you always have courage.
to take a chance.
And may you never find frogs.
in your underpants!"

Doesn't that just make you smile!!

Over at High Hopes they are having a Challenge #187 Punches & Dies. So I want to enter my card over there today!

I used: Memory Box Mansfield Frams Dies,  Copics to color , Paper from my stash, Flowers or wild orchard, Stamp & Sentiment High Hopes. 

Hope you have a great day! :)

New Desk for the Family Room

It has been a while since I have posted anything. I haven't been creating at all. I so miss it. I have been busy with my family and after school commitments!  

 I have not been in my beautiful scrapbook room since Dec 2012 :(. This last weekend we went out of town shopping and guess what I found!! It is perfect for the family room. That way while we are watching family tv I can create!! 
My husband is going to put it on wheels so I can easily move it to where ever I am!! :) I can't wait! Now all I need is some time to put this baby together and fill it up!! :) Hopefully I will have some time to create in the next few weeks!
