  I Love when a stamp not only makes me smile but also brings back some fun memories! Gertie, Millie and Hattie from High Hopes Stamps does just that!

The memories are from a pre pandemic shopping trip I was on with my peeps. We were in a craft store around Halloween that had costume pieces.....including hats. One of us looking at the hats and trying one on turned in to all three of us trying on a hat followed by some schenanigans and a whole lot of laughs and fun. 

Yes there are pictures to prove it......but I don't think we had quite the same Hat-itude that these three have! I am also seeing a spring card design for these three fun chicks. Meet Gertie, Millie and Hattie!

After stamping these cuties I coloured them with Copic markers and hand fussy cut them. I wanted to keep the design simple for this card because I wanted the "chicks" to be the focus - they are so fun!

The card size itself is a little different because it is more of a vertical format and I usually do square cards. A super talented crafty peep of mine introduced me to this size of card last year and it is fast becoming a favourite. The finished card size is 4.5"w x 5.5"h. 

Patterned paper from two different Echo Park pads were perfect for these fun chicks. I love plaid so after cutting it and the card stock to size I glued them down. Next I cut the green paper and card stock, glued them down and added them to the plaid base. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a fish tail banner and added some matching card stock. Foam pop dots were added to the stamped image before placing them to add some dimension to my card.  Some ribbon and enamel dots finish of my simple design.
