High Hopes Challenge #47

World Card Making Day completely passed me by. I woke up Saturday full of a cold and just didn't feel up to crafting or spreading my germs to others for that matter so I stayed out of my craft room much to my sadness. I am feeling much better today so I got on with a project I have been trying to do for the last 3 High Hopes Challenges.

The first challenge (#45) was to use your favorite High Hopes stamp. Well at that point I was super excited to have just had just had a whole bunch of rubber arrive from High Hopes so I picked out Jolie's Little Friend. It drew me to it straight away. Such a cute little image, I love it. Well the deadline came and went and the new challenge was Happy Birthday as the High Hopes Challenge Blog celebrated it's first birthday (#46) it wanted you to make a birthday card for the challenge. That's exactly what I needed this card for so, Yay! However that deadline came and went. So this week once I started feeling better I finally got some time in my craft room and finished my card.

This weeks challenge is 'lots of layers'. I'm pretty sure my card fits this challenge too. So here it is along with a picture of all my yummy rubber. It took a while to get here but when High Hopes announced they were going wholesale they were inundated with orders from people making last minute orders and mine got caught in the rush. I new they were busy so I was not angry that my images took so long but man was I doing a major happy dance here when they finally arrived. It took me a whole day to foam mount these babies but now they are all safely stored in my new Stampendous storage files and good to go.

It is so much fun to get all the stamps in the mail, I also had to wait a while but, boy was it worth it!
This is absolutely adorable! The added bug BG paper is just great.
