It's a Blog Hop!

Good morning and welcome to High Hopes release day! If you've arrived here from Amy L then you are right on track, otherwise you must go back-you want a prize, don't you?!!


This unfortunate dragon is called Troubled Travis...and he did seem to get into a bit of trouble! The image is stamped on Neenah Solar Crest White Ultra Smooth card stock and colored with Copics. I used my Copic blender to give texture to his skin...if you look close you can see the dots I clustered together to give him bumpy rough skin. Click on the photo for a close up! I sponged around the outside of the panel with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo (around the sentiment too) and layered him up on a piece of patterned paper from Basic Grey's Archaic line. It's finished with layered buttons and rustic twine on ribbon all from PTI.

Your next stop on the hop is Jeanne! Make sure you follow the hop from beginning to end leaving a comment at each stop. There will be four blogs chosen at random, with a winner chosen from the comments for some fabulous prizes, but the catch is that the chosen ones must have commented on each of the Diva's blogs! You could win the entire new release! Visit High Hopes to see all of the new images!

So what are you waiting for? Get hoppin'!!
