High Hopes challenge #24!!

Good Sunday morning everyone!! Well, we got walloped with snow last night....I knew all that nice weather & tulips popping up were just a nasty tease from Mother Nature!! Earlier this week we weren't wearing jackets.....now I'm hearing my neighbors snow thrower!! Ahhhh....Wisconsin...

This week's High Hopes challenge comes from my fabulous friend Ila, & she would like to see creative borders on our cards!! You can use punches, ribbon, distressing.....anything, really, to give your borders some oomph!



For my card this week I chose to use Miss Peggy, one of the recently new releases....isn't she a doll? I'd been seeing a lot of white on white cards lately, & realized that that was the challenge on the ATS blog this past week. I've never done a card in just one color.....well, I guess I still didn't, since I stuck some pink in there.....but I thought I'd give it a try. So I colored Peggy with my Prismas & gamsol, used the Cuttlebug paisley folder on the bottom layer, the Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder & that Martha doily lace punch on the vertical strip, & my Nesties for the image. I added some white polka dot ribbon, some Primas, & a Cuttlebug vintage corner covered in Stickles. Sure seems like this card shouldn't have taken very long.....but of course, I futzed with it & fiddled with it & 2 hours later, this was the end result, lol. There is no such thing as a quick card for me!!




Be sure to hop on over the High Hopes blog to check out what the other Divas have done! As always, if you play along, be sure to post a link so you can have a chance to win some goodies!!

Oh, & I wanted to share with you our 2 new guest designers for the next term......Tab & Karen!! Tab's blog is Tabby Craft Designs & Karen's blog is 6 Wacky Women.

So sorry to hear about the snow, too! No snow here in Florida...but it was in the upper 40's this morning. Which is cold for us this time of year.
