Make it Sparkle Challenge

ETA - for anyone else (Oh Bonnie!) who may have noticed my spelling error, I duly apologize, and I have made the correction. I will not tell you which word it was, but do know that leaving out that one tiny little letter makes it an inappropriate word for this blog...oops!!! It was kinda funny though ;)


This weeks High Hopes challenge is to make it Sparkle and Shine! I love the whimsical Santa waterskiing image and after I watercolored him with Sparkling H2O's I added more sparkle with glitter to the water and on top of the Marvy Liquid Applique I used on his hat trim and pompom. The red base layer is Bazzill cardstock and the green polka dot is Bo Bunny. The kraft paper and ribbon are both from PTI.

Please head over to the High Hopes blog to check out all the fantastic sample from the awesome Diva's and play along with us! Use keyword HHC41 if you upload to a public gallery. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Okay I am falling off my chair at your spelling mistake in your second last sentence, but only because I am a stickler for spelling! (and a snickerer....) Oh and your card is so sparkly and cute.... just love your image and fantastic stitching!!

wv: shinard - I am totally inept at imagining anything after that spelling mistake......

Oh, how fun! This is adorable. Gosh, the stitching sure does add a lot, doesn't it? I do NOT have room for one more tool in my stamp room, though. Nope, no sewing for me, boo hoo.
