High Hopes challenge #49!

Good Sunday morning to ya!! I can't believe I'm up so early considering I actually went out last night!! My mom & I went to a benefit for our local Humane Society. So much fun!! We went 2 years ago too & had a blast, too. They always have the best food & the BEST entertainment!! It's been a long time since I had a night out so I'm glad I could go!!

Today's High Hopes challenge is hosted by Nikki, & she wants us to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors. I don't know how non-traditional mine is, since I did use red, but paired with blue I thought it was a bit different.

I used Snow Family from the last release in July.....& colored it with Copics. I am slowly building quite a collection of these, so I am forcing myself to use them more!! Of course, I cheat & use them to color images such as snowmen....where there's not too much coloring involved :) The papers are SU's Riding Hood Red & Provocraft (a HUGE holiday pack I got on clearance a few years ago).....& the sentiment is from Inky Antics, which was cut out with a blossom Nestie. I added some poinsettias, some Dew Drops, some swirls & a snowflake charm (bought on Ebay, of's where I buy ALL my charms!). I added Liquid Applique & glitter to the "snow" on the ground....& added some glitter to their hats.

Aren't they the cutest little family??

Please be sure to visit the High Hopes blog so you can ogle the rest of the Divas creations!! And if you play along, be sure to leave a link in the comments section!

Well today is Matthew's birthday party & I still have to decorate his cake & get the treat bags I'm off for now!! Enjoy your Sunday!!

Another wonderful card from you. I was looking and thought that paper looks familiar...and now I know why- I have that pad of paper too and have never used it. (No!! we stampers don't have things sitting in our stamping room we've never used!!) So I have dug it out and now I am going to use it. Thanks to you for the ideas.
