High Hopes Challenge 28!!!

Wow, another week has gone by and I can't believe it will be May already next Friday! Back with another fun challenge today and this week our talented Diva Amy is asking us to "think outside the card"! So basically get creative but NO cards! You'll see below that the Diva's have given you lots of inspiration with their project this week!

The random winner of last week's challenge is Tracey from Tray's Spot. Congratulations Tracey and be sure to send Kimmie your mailing information and she'll forward it on to High Hopes!

This week's random winner will receive the stamp shown on the front of Amy's index book "Sweet Dreams" and the sentiment
"The kiss of the sun "

Now here is the inspiring work from the Divas!!

High Hopes Challenge #27!!!

Well, it's Sunday again.....when did that happen??? The weeks seem to fly by these days, don't you think?? And it's a special Sunday, because the new release stamps are now available to order on the High Hopes website!!! Yaaaaaaaay! And you will see several of them featured in today's samples!!! Just go to the catalogue page and type in HOTP for hot off the press and you can see all the new images!!!

The random winner of last week's challenge is Pascale from My Crafty Heaven!!! Congratulations Pascale and be sure to send me your mailing information and I'll forward it on to High Hopes!

Now is anyone out there stressed these days??? Well, I'm hoping to help de-stress you by getting you to dis-tress your designs!!! You can distress your cards by using ink to age them, by tearing your paper or by roughing up the edges using your scissors or distressing tool. But take your stress out on your paper!!! Haha!!

This week's random winner will receive Odie and the Friends Furr Ever sentiment as featured on my card!!

Now please take a look at some wonderful inspiration from the gals!!!

New Shipping for US Customers!!!

Starting April 1st, High Hopes is no longer using Canada Post for orders going to the US but is using UPS/Purolator instead. This should greatly reduce shipping times. Your stamps are made to order, so after your stamps are made and packaged, they will be sent out by courier, instead of the sloooooow postal system. Tina and her family realized how frustrating it was to make their customers wait so long to receive their precious rubber, so they have done something about it! We've got High Hopes this change will make people much happier! (pun intended)

High Hopes Hullaballoo....Day One!!!

Woohooooo!! It's Day One of the High Hopes Hullaballoo which means that the Divas have been working hard ..... okay, really we've been playing hard....with the brand new release images!!!

There's lots of dressin' up going on with those cute little kiddies and some creepy crawlies.....okay, you KNOW that Crissy's creepies should be called 'cutie cralies'....just wait 'til ya see them!!!

Be sure to stop by these Divas' blog to see their sneakie peekies!!!

A Rumour....

We have heard through the grapevine....several grapevines in fact...that there is a rumour out there about High Hopes being at the big Crafts and Hobby Association event in Florida this summer. Not sure where this wild story came from, but sadly, it is not true.

While we absolutely adore our customers and would love to meet and hang out with every one of you, this trip is just not in the plans for this year.

Trust me, if it were possible ALL of the Divas would be on the next plane out....haha! We're not sure where people are hearing this, but if you have heard it, can you let us know where you saw it, please?? Thanks!!
