This stamp had me giggling the whole time I was colouring it and all I could think was ... we all get by with a little help from our friends. The ant on the bottom sure is struggling..but look at that smile - through gritted teeth - but it's a smile none the less. I decided to make this card featuring "Drink Lemonade" to add to my stash so I have it on hand when a friend or family member needs a pick me up.

Today for High Hopes Stamps a very sweet image. Teddy Bear Sampler. Love how much is going on in this image! And that it is the perfect frame for a sentiment.
I went with pastel colors so those bears would pop on the card. All colored with my Copics (colors below). A piece of pattern paper from my stash as the background. To add a little bling I used a Nuvo paint pen. The center of the frame is cut out to expose the sentiment inside the card. High Hopes Stamps "Beary Special to Me" Perfect for these cute little bears and all those buzzing bees!
The Copic colors used - yes there were quite a few of them, but it was just so fun to color!
This really was so fun to color! A great happy time coloring.

I have a few people in my life who are moving in the near future. These moves will be a fresh or new start for all of them and when I saw the "Spring Birdhouse Garden" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps I thought it would be perfect for a new home card for one of them. I had the white picket fence saying come to mind when I saw it so I decided to colour it up that way. I am wishing all of them the best in their moves and the new memories they will make.

Howdy - MichelleO here today -
Went to make my High Hopes Stamps Card this week and
this image just seemed good for me this week. All though my issue isn't
leg... its hand/arm. LOL This is Cole's Laid Up -
had an car accident this last week, minding our own business and BAM - and we are fine but man I am sore and
my hand is still hurting and hard to color... but I kept going cuz I
really wanted to see this little guy all colored up and pretty.
I colored with my Copics (colors below) And then found some papers from Echo Park Just be You collection. I LOVE the patterns and colors. I sewed down layers with my sewing machine - and then used High Hopes Stamps sentiment "Back on Your Feet" - perfect!
And with that flower pattern paper, I went and found more flowers - mulberry roses, Prima green flowers and Martha Steward leaves punches.
This one makes me grin... even in pain! LOL

No long road trip is complete without these famous words....are we there yet? Whether it is a family heading out on vacation or two friends going for a long drive it just seems to happen at least once on a long trip. When we were kids we always asked at least once and now as an adult it happens when I'm on a long drive with a friend. This usually brings a good laugh and a conversation about the times we did it to our parents as kids and creates new memories and laughs. "Just Cruisin'" brings back some of these wonderful memories and is perfect for a card for one of my long drive, road trip friends.

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I had some fun this week with a "High Flyin' Mouse" for High Hopes Stamps!
I went for a "cute" fun card with colors that were spring-y! Papers are all from Echo Park Just be You collection. Love all the patterns and they all match perfectly. I then colored my sweet little mouse with my Copics (colors below) and then went a bit nuts with my zig zag stitching on my sewing machine. The texture is just too fun.
Used my Nuvo white paint pen for some highlights in the image, and then added some fun enamel dots to the paper. For the sentiment I went with High Hopes Stamps "Dot Happy Birthday to You!" It is such a fun font for a sweet card. Just a fun happy card!

I love having cards on hand to send as a pick me up or just to say hi to someone in my life who needs a smile or to know I am thinking of them. I can't help but smile along with "Hedgy In Tulip" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps as he greets his butterfly friend and I hope this brings a smile to the recipient as well.

Howdy - MichelleO here today and I am loving the Bright Spring colors right now. A favorite
is green and purple! And this cute little frog is perfect for those
colors! This is "Handstand Frog" - he so much fun!
I colored with my Copics, and went with bold colors. Then cut out with an oval die, with a faux mat with my purple Copic. My papers are from my older scraps. Love the fun Mid Century feel of these. I sewed them with a zig zag stitch.
The sentiment is also from High Hopes Stamps "Just Hoppin' by" - fun for any bouncing little critter.
Then still on my desk I had a jar of mulberry flowers - in that perfect purple color. So three of those, with green brad centers, then some Martha Stewart Rose punch leaves. Love how it all came together with these colors.
