I had some fun this week making a card to share with you featuring an older High Hopes Stamp called "Mudzie's Predicament". 

This stamp brought back some memories for me. I grew up in the middle (age wise) of two brothers. They often teamed up on me and convincing me to stick my tongue to the metal tobaggan we had at the time was no exception! I learned the hard way not to always listen to these two!!! lol

I coloured my stamp and then fussy cut it out leaving a thin white border. My sky was created with ink blending and the snow is dabs of white acrylic paint. The stamp is popped up with 3D foam pop dots for fun. A first for me - I ran some white card stock through an embossing folder and added some colour to it with ink. I also added colour to the tops of my snow banks. My card is finished off with a bow and some enamel dots.
