Bob Loves Golf

Howdy -

MichelleO here - Another great new image from High Hopes Stamps - Bob Love Golf 

Now I am not a "golfer" but coloring this one was too much fun. Maybe it was finding the perfect pattern paper to create a paper pieced pair of golfing pants out of! LOL

I colored with my Copics (colors below) and then found the pattern paper for him. Went pretty wild... as don't most serious golfers where the most ridiculous patterns?  I used the same paper and lots of card stock mats for this one. Sewed down all the layers then added the sentiment that is also from High Hopes Sentiment #4 Collection - then a few buttons for added fun.

Inside more of the same papers.

Copic colors used -

So I may not "get" golf.. but coloring it up was fun!

Make sure to pop over to the High Hopes Stamps website

Hang Ten!

Howdy High Hopes Fans!
My card today shows the super cute image called Gabriel Loves Surfing! Gabriel has to be the cutest little Dude! Can't you just picture him in Hawaii surfing the waves?
I'm using paper from the Fancy Pants Making Waves 6x6 collection. The sentiment is from the HH Sentiment Set#4. I added some twine and a button for my embellishments this time around. And can you believe it no glitter pen..... I know I struggled with that LOL. I just didn't think Gabriel wanted to be sparkly LOL.
On the inside I used some of the scraps from my papers to tie everything together! I left the inside blank so I can personalize it when an occasion pops up.

Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E13, E15, E17, E19
Shorts: B34, B37, B39, YR23
