High Hopes challenge #54 ~ SANTA!!

Good morning!! Time for another High Hopes challenge!! This week our hostess is our guest Diva Michelle! She is asking us to use a Santa image on our card.



I chose Tropical Santa for my card.....remember you can now order High Hopes stamps from 7 Kids College Fund. And if you don't see what you are looking for, let Tab know & she will special order it! In fact, she is taking orders RIGHT NOW .....if you have an order please CHECK OUT THIS POST for instructions....you can order until Monday, November 23rd!

Ok, back to the card!! I colored Mr. Claus with Prismas & gamsol.....using oranges & blues since he's on the beach relaxing.....he's thinking "enough of that red & green crap"....lol....so of course his hat is orange & his candy cane is orange & that goes against everything Christmas....but hey I had to make it all match!! I did sponge the sand & sky, but I should have done it a bit darker....it didn't really show up in my picture. If it's not the reds giving me trouble, it's something else I tell ya!! The papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia....the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink....& the swirls are Quickutz.





I clear embossed his glasses, glass & candy cane....used Fun Flock on his hat.....& gave him a little sunburn...Santa forgot his SPF40!!

Please check out the High Hopes blog to see what everyone else came up with!! And as always, if you play along you can be entered to win a little HH goodie!!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!! The weather has been fabulous here....perfect for delivering all those wreaths our neighbors ordered through Scouts!! And I may even get some Xmas lights up outside. That's usually hubby's job, but he always complains about it & I always learn a few new words when he does it.....sometimes it's better to just do it myself! I've heard the LED lights are FAB so I'm going to go get some of those! Our neighbors used them for the first time last year & he said not only can you string a whole bunch together without blowing a fuse....but they are brighter & use wayyyyyyy less electricity. I'm all for that!!!
