Challenge 117: Back to School

Hello High Hopes fans!!

Before we get to the challenge and winner, we have a few things to mention.

First off, do you like the new look of the blog?
We are hoping to update the look of the blog periodically to go with the themes and seasons. The very talented Karen stamped and colored the wondering header while the fabulous Bethany (aka the right arm of High Hopes) created the background and overall design.

We have added tabs to the top of the blog to help you find what you're looking for.
You will find a tab for the current challenge, a list of tutorials, an introduction to the team and artists, and where you can find High Hopes stamps.

We also added a "Publication" Tab. Did you know that High Hopes pays you (in stamps) for any printed publication you have using a High Hopes image?! If you have been published in a print magazine, make sure to let us know!!

Also, the High Hopes webstore will be hosting a Monthly Blog Special.
Specific stamps or line of stamps will be on sale each month during the first week of the month. These specials are only available through the High Hopes webstore - not through any local or Diva retail store.
These will be on sale through tomorrow.

We hope the new layout will make it easier to find everything you need.

Oh, and we are now on FACEBOOK!! Make sure to come join our Facebook page!

Lastly, it's time to say goodbye to our most recent Guest Divas and introduce you to our newest Guests. It was such a pleasure to have Niki E and Lynne on the team. They will be greatly missed! But we are so happy to give a warm welcome to Heidi and Sarah.

Next week we will start a new program called "Meet the Divas". Once a month we will showcase two of our Designers. We will begin this program with our newest guests. So please make sure to come back next week to learn all about the newest members of the team.

Ok...it was wonderful to see all of your Autumn Color themed cards last challenge! Unfortunately, there is only 1 winner...

Back to School

You can make a card for a teacher, create a card for a student returning to school, or make someone for your little student: back back/lunch box tag, bookmark, notebook, etc...
