High Hopes Challenge #24!!!

Well, it's Challenge time again, dear stampers!! Are you ready for some more High Hopes fun??

There were SO many amazing creations last week...I guess you all needed an excuse to use your buttons, didn't you?? haha!! The random winner of the button challenge is....Stacey from The Crafting Adventures of a Left-Handed Blonde! Wow, that's a long title! Congratulations Stacey and be sure to email me with your mailing information and we'll get those stamps out to you!

This week we have the wonderful Ila as our hostess and she would like us to use Creative Borders on our designs!! You can use border punches, tear your edge, distress it, doodle on it, make a border from buttons, brads, eyelets, rhinestones, pearls, use lace or ribbon for your borders, the possibilities are endless!!! Go nuts!!!

This week's random winner will receive Maribelle Cow and the Cow Ya Doin? sentiment, as used on Ila's stunning card!!!

And now for your viewing pleasure.......

Christyne (aka Apple Blossom) said...

I just got my first High Hopes order and can't wait to play! I'm guessing by looking through the blog that the challenges last one week...is that correct?

Kimberly Gajewski said...

What wonderful cards Ladies! I can't wait to see what all of the players have done! Mine can be found HERE. Thanks so much for looking! :D

Christyne (aka Apple Blossom) said...

Here's my submission for the Creative Border challenge! I used my brand new High Hopes stamps from my first ever High Hopes order - LOVE them and will be ordering again!

Check out my card here:

Diana said...

FYI - my creativity with the borders-- I put them in the middle of the page. I know, not very creative, but I'm working on it. (I also think it was using my creative juices to border everything in black - that's very outside the box for me!) You can see my card at SCS here. Also, I will be blogging this card as soon as I can get around to it - this is my blog.

Kate T said...

Love the DT cards - wow -My border is with shields and brads (rivets!)
