High Hopes Heaven!!!!

Didja hear my screams yesterday???? Around 2:00 CST??? I got my new High Hopes rubber!!!! Oh, I cried tears of joy!! What an overwhelming, beautiful pile of rubber!! I won't even tell you how long it took me to decide what to play with first!!!!


Well, *finally* I decided on this cutie.....Summer's Sweetness....I think this is my first official "summer" card of 2009!! I've been so hooked on snowmen & winter cards.....all it took was a few pieces of new rubber to snap me out of that!! I colored her with Prismas & gamsol....the papers are Bazzill Bling Red Carpet & Basic Grey Eva...added some Primas, some pearls, some ribbon & a charm....& that was good. She is quite the star all by herself!



Here's a picture of the inside. I used the Watermelon Border and the One In A Melon saying. If you would like to see ALL the new releases, you can click HERE. You might want to grab a snack & a beverage, because you're gonna be there a while!!!


Someone asked me the other day if I'm still selling my cards on Ebay. Nope. I did until Christmas time, & then things went kind of south. The sellers & the buyers were suddenly arguing, buyers were requesting sellers to block a certain other buyer.....it got quite nasty. So I decided to take a break & open an Etsy shop. Unfortunately, I haven't really had the time to stock is as I wanted to. I really wanted to have 40-50 cards in there, & I think I have 10, lol. So.....if you see any cards you like posted here on my blog & would like to purchase one, please e-mail me ....the link is on my sidebar. Who knows when I'll get around to listing again.....so don't be shy...if you're interested, just let me know :)

I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday.....hard to believe there are just a few more days of February.....I know it's a short month & all, but it went SUPER fast!!! One month closer to summer!!!!

I don't always have time to comment on blogs I visit but I just had to tell you how fantastic this card is. You colored it perfectly and the inside looks wonderful too. BTW- I am actually jealous of you as I am impatiently waiting for my stamps to arrive LOL. Also, I make banana bread all the time but will have to try your recipe as I never used sour cream in one before- sounds yummy!
