High Hopes Challenge 58 ~ bows

Good Sunday morning, my blogger friends!! Can you believe I completely FORGOT about the High Hopes challenge this week?? Good grief....I was reading my email last night & the other Divas were chatting about the challenge......gasp! I forgot!! With all the talk about new releases & sneakie peekies......it just slipped my mind. I didn't think I could get one done, but it turns out....if I ignore my computer & stay focused....I *can* finish a card in a reasonable amount of time!!

So this week's challenge is Put A Bow On It....brought to us by Karen, our Wacky Diva!!! I couldn't miss out on this challenge.....easy peasy!!




I used an adorable image from last year that hadn't seen ink yet (I say that a lot, don't I?). This is Matchmakin' Maynard. He's colored with Prismas....glitter added to his wings....papers are SU's Old Olive & K&Company's Que Sera Sera....I used my Oval Nesties to cut & matte the image....Martha Stewart heart border punch...& my NEW Martha lace scallop heart punch! Don't you love it? I was just chatting with some friends & we were talking about all the new Martha punches.....& I thought this one was cute, but I said I didn't need it because I have the Heart Nesties. Well, can you believe I was at Michael's yesterday, & the bugger just fell into my cart! It wanted to come home with me! What's a girl to do? Martha....you're killing me!!




Here's a close up of Mr Maynard.....can ya see the sparkly on his wings??

I hope you can play along this week!! Go to the High Hopes blog to check out what the rest of the Divas created, & to enter to win a couple of yummy HH goodies!! Namely, Chef Pierre & the Lovin' from my Oven sentiment pictured below!! Perfect for Valentines Day....coming up quickly!!!!!






Thanks so much for visiting.....enjoy your Sunday!!
