Hello stamping friends!!
I am back from my Missions trip to Ecuador. I have posted a gazillion pictures from my trip on my facebook page. I will try to do a blog post or two to discuss the trip, but I have been running around trying to get orders out since we got home Thursday night. And now High Hopes is having a new release on Wednesday so I have to get busy finishing up my DT cards for the release.
I will be choosing the winner from the card drive soon and will show a picture of all of the lovely cards we received. There ended up being a lot more young kids at Casa de Fe so we ended up giving the cards to the teenagers and the Tias (the ladies who cook, clean, feed, bath, watch, teach, aka do everything at Casa de Fe). The Tias work so hard for very little money and they were so excited that we gave the cards to them - they REALLY appreciated all of the effort that went into each card.
I will post information about our trip soon, but now I need to focus on the High Hopes Release.
On Wednesday, we will have a Blog Hop to celebrate the release. In the mean time, today and tomorrow the High Hopes Dream Team have created some lovely samples to showcase the stamps that will be released on Wednesday. Make sure to check them out at the High Hopes Challenge Blog.
We will be make tomorrow with more samples and a new release.
It is also time for the Stamp and Create Monthly Challenge. The theme: Love
Check out the challenge post for details.
Here is my card...
This image is called "Penguin Pals" and the sentiment is called "My Valentine" and will also be released on Wednesday. I think this image would also make a good Christmas card, too.
The image was embossed in black onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os...
The Stamp and Create Challenge runs through Sunday, Feb 3rd.
This is also for the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody: Anything Goes
