The High Hopes 100th Challenge Blog Hop is here!!!

And YES!!! I am part of it!!!!! Woohoooooo....it has been so fun hanging with the Divas again! I have missed everyone soooooo much! I owe so much to Tina & Bethany, & all the Divas.....thank you for your friendship, & thank you for asking me to join in this FAB event!

So.....we are here to celebrate 100 High Hopes challenges! I can remember the whole conversation about starting a challenge blog like it was yesterday. Hard to believe they've had 100 challenges!! So......the theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES!!!! I *heart* this challenge, lol!!



For my card, I used an oldie but a goodie.......Little Missy! I colored her with Copic markers & added a wee bit of paper piecing on her dress. The papers are Basic Grey Pyrus plus a former Stampin' Up In Color (not sure which, I am so bad at keeping up with those!). Used some Nesties....a Martha punch....some sewing & some pearls. I used the layout from this week's Friday Sketchers sketch, but didn't have room for the sentiment....oops, guess that's a major part of the layout so I will probably not enter it. Shoulda made the card just a bit bigger.....




Here's a close up pic .....trust me, that little bit of paper piecing looks MUCH better than how I had colored it, lol!




Hopefully in this pic you can see the oh-so-glittery flower & hair bow...



SO....here's the scoop on the hop.....


In order to have a chance to win, you must leave a comment on each blog along the hop.

The hop will remain open until 12:00pm (noon) EST Monday, Jan 17th & the winner will be announced next Tuesday.

The 1st prize is $100 worth of High Hopes Stamps (retail value unmounted or cling mounted stamps)!!! WOW!!!

The 2nd prize is $50 worth of High Hopes stamps (retail value unmounted or cling mounted stamps)!!!

And the 3rd and 4th prizes will each receive $25 worth of High Hopes stamps (retail value unmounted or cling mounted stamps)!!
