I have been holding onto a HUGE secret for months.....

Okay...where to start...okay first- I have had this secret for ages and ages!!!!! Happy secrets are hard to keep but I did it!!! Okay...it's also going to be happening for 3 months- right till the end of January. Okay...have you guessed it yet?? No..okay...well do you recognize the stamp on my card? I used it before on a card found here. Okay..I am just going to spill...

I AM A GUEST DESIGNER FOR HIGH HOPES- WOOT WOOT!!

Yippeeeeee!!! Today is my first post for High Hopes and I am thrilled! I get to play with High Hopes stamps all the time when I create for Scrappingreatdeals and Paper Romance and I love their images to colour with my copic markers...mmm...perfect stamps for colouring!

For my first challenge with HHRS we were to make a step card- I actually wasn't even sure what that was but I was up to it. Thankfully Lacey sent me a link to a tutorial from Beate on splitcoast that you can find here that walks you through it. Phew- thanks again Lacey! I used Ele-fun and some of my hoarded Echo Park summertime paper as it always says birthday paper to me. I also used my glitter pen and clear glaze to add dimension to my image. To read more about this week's challenge deets and how you can play to win click here to go to the High Hopes blog and also to see what the rest of the DT created. Let me put it this way- I almost resigned when I saw the rest of the ladies creations-AmAzInG!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, a bit more about me and High Hopes. I actually found out about High Hopes stamps a few years back when I first started using copic markers and I needed to find stamps that would allow me to colour them. I was shown High Hope stamps by Sheila and that was it- my first copic cards would be using their stamps so I have always had a soft spot for their images. In fact some of my first eva coloured cards were using some of their older images. I have included them below for giggles. These are some of my first ever cards using copic markers.

Yep...me and High Hopes...we go wayyyyy back :)
