A Good Friend is Easy to Spot

Phew! I finally got my stuff done for the next Papertrey Ink release. Then, my computer decided to give me fits when I try to download the photos from my camera. I finally got it to transfer and now I just have to edit all the photos and upload them to the gallery. You all are going to love the new sets!

I also finally got a chance to take a photo of my card for the High Hopes challenge. The challenge is to use blue, brown, green and any neutral. I just love this giraffe from High Hopes. His name is Stretch. Isn't he cute?! I chose my papers, cardstocks, and ribbon and then set about coloring my image with copic markers.


I used the embossed edge as a guide for my grass and sky, leaving a nice white border. I added the grass using a copic multiliner pen. Then, I cut all my layers, added my sentiment and some stitching, scallops, and ribbon.

Well, I have to run and get the kiddos in bed. Have a great day!!
