Ant with a rubber tree plant.....

"He's got ....High.....Hopes....."

Ok I don't know the words to that song. I've only heard bits & pieces of it on "Laverne & Shirley" LOL!

But the High Hopes ants are the CUTEST! I was recently going through my pile of HH rubber & this stamp made me SMILE. He's called Hopeful Ant, & he's available at 7 Kids College Fund if you're interested :)

And can you believe it?? I used my Copic markers YET AGAIN to color this image! My pencils are going to start feeling left out!! The papers are Basic Grey Sugared & Papertrey Ink --I'd better find out the name of this particular color because I LOVE it. I bought a variety pack from them (because I couldn't pick just ONE color) & I've already used all of this lovely Olive-y Green.

I used lots of dies --a Cuttlebug die for the outer corners -- a Quickutz swirl die behind the main layer -- & a Fiskars punch for the image. I didn't use ANY flowers or ribbons --gasp! Does that make this a "man" card?

I paper pieced his pot using the same yellow Basic Grey paper as the square behind the image -- & added some shading & clear embossing.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It's a balmy zero degrees here --with a wind chill of about -100. Thankfully we didn't have to go anywhere tonight but my younger son has basketball tomorrow so we will have to venture out. I'd rather stay home with a big, bottomless cup of coffee!!

Of course Sunday I will be GLUED to my tv all day watching the PACKERS VS Bears. I'm making lots of fun football food --chili & little BBQ'd weenies & I made some yummy dip --- mmmm.....doesn't that all sound healthy? LOL.....

Stay warm!
