High Hopes Stamps and Farmville together equals one cute card...


I haven't posted much at all this Summer as we have been SOOOOO busy with the kids at home that is has been crazy! Except for cleaning my craft room to organize my newest crafty purchases I haven't done much creating at all. While I missed it I have to say it was a good break for my mojo. Playing with the kids helped me relax and find my creative outlets again.

Which leads me to the inspiration for my High Hopes Stamps challenge card.......

Farmville

I have a secret....I am addicted to playing Farmville. It is actually not much of a secret as those who know me have teased me endlessly about it. I have tried to stop...tried to walk away but dang it they keep coming up with new challenges and cute new virtual animals and my farm just reels me back in. My kids tell strangers that I love my 2-D chickens more than them. I don't of course...but let's hope I never have to choose ;). I have also made some really cool Farming friends- Cathy, Luane, Vilma, Cindy, Nancy....just to name a few. Oh and I can't forget my newest gaming buddy Chris 'Sparklepuff' Diedrich- this card is in honour of all of you.

I spent a long time colouring up this older HHS image- Clarabelle and Riley- and it felt sooo good to have my markers back in my hands. I even cracked out the pencils and OMS to try my hand at decent grass. Not too shabby for a first time! I also included a pic of the copics I used at the bottom of this post for those of you who are interested.

This week's challenge is so easy anyone can play along! The challenge is to use anything High Hopes. Maybe you want to make a Farmville card like me? Or perhaps a Cityville, Mafia Wars or Treasure Isle card lmbo!!! Come on over to the High Hopes Stamps challenge blog to see some fantastic cards from the HHS Divas and also to add your card to our challenge.

Y'all come back now- ye hear! Andi
