Christmas in June...

That last card made me get into a bit of a Christmassy mood! Made this one using designs from a Chris Warner cd - Decoupage Christmas Trees but decided to use the blues rather than the greens.

Alphabet Challenge - I is for ...

Icy colours. Here is my card for the I is for Icy colours over on the Alphabet Challenge Blog. I used some freebie backing paper, holographic & patterned card fancy ribbon & a bow from my stash. I was going to put a Christmas sentiment on but didn't as I thought it could be used for a winter birthday card.

Alphabet Challenge

Here is my card for H is for hearts on the Alphabet Challenge Blog. I decided to use iris folding - took some time but I think it looks ok. Found some rub ons & beads in my stash, then used some heart punches. Trouble is I can never get away from reds & pinks for anything to do with hearts ! Hope you like it. (Decided to keep this card for hubby - the 243 is something between us.)

My Time To Craft Challenge - anniversary card

I made this card using a heart template and tried some dry embossing. I thought using my own handwriting rather than printing would give it a more personal touch. The ribbon hearts were from my stash. I have entered this one in the My Time To Craft Challenge - challenge 95 - Xtra Special.

Hubby's birthday card

Here is a card I made for OH birthday. He's a mad keen photographer hence the photography theme ! I used a punch to make the film like holes down the side of the card & on the acetate which I then coloured with Stazon ink to make it look like photographic film. Seems very old fashioned in this age of digital but OH was really pleased with the card. I used some SeeDees stamps of antique cameras onto vellum for the background.

High Hopes Stamps

Welcoming Melissa Jenkins to the HH family!

We are so proud and excited to be welcoming Melissa Jenkins to the High Hopes family! If you are not already familiar with MelJen's Designs, you are in for a treat, as she has a very unique "girly girl" style with swirls and hearts and sweet little ladybugs accenting much of her work.

Our design team has been having loads of fun the last couple of weeks as they have been quietly preparing for the second release of Dustin Pike images, and our first release with Melissa Jenkins images. We know we can always count on Dustin for some fun, funky, fabulous images that are great for all occasions, and adding Melissa to our family was a perfect fit as we felt we needed that "girly-feminine" touch!

We know you will find both Dustin and Melissa are personally as charming as the characters they draw. We are so totally enjoying working with them and excited to see what they come up with next!,

Thank you for stopping by to see what we are up to!

With Warm Wishes! ~ Tina-Marie


But I think it looks better on this one....

another inchy

Still on the S theme - I found this stamp...


This is my card for the All one-colour challenge at Which Crafts. I used templates for the flower shapes and attached the centres by sewing.

Hi - I thought I would have a go at the challenge on the Inchy by Inch blog, which this week is the letter S. Hope you like my sparkling seahorses.

green again !

Another green card. Waterfall card was a freebie from a magazine. Don't think it's too bad for a first attempt.


Well this card is very green. I made it for the Alphabet Challenge Blog. First time I have taken part in any challenges so hope it is ok.
