This card was made for High Hopes Challenge #68, with Easter in mind! On the front of the card, I used a DP that leeked "springy" as well as Easter eggs on ribbon. Cardstocks used on the front of the card are Pixie Pink, and white cardstock. The rabbit stamp, Fast Eddie, as well as the verse are from the latest stamps that Dustin made for High Hopes. The eggs on the bottom of the picture are punched out of scraps of DP that I had; also, 2 of the eggs, as well as the verse are "popped out", using Pop Dots. The rabbit carrying the basket, the basket, and eggs in the basket were colored with Copics, using colors C1, E30, R27, R81, RV14, V0000, V17, and Y17.

Inside of the card, DP was used on the upper part that had words and sayings about spring. Pacific Point cardstock was used for the corners. On the lower section, Barely Banana cardstock was used in the background, and Green Galore cardstock was used to make the grass, which was punched out. The stamp used for the lower portion is On Top of The World from High Hopes. This image was put in the grass, but was also "popped out" with the Pop Dots. Copics used to color this image are: B02, G05, RV14, V04, Y13, Y17, and V17.

WOW!! I didn't realize I hadn't been on yet this year! Sorry - we've had computer problems that have not let me post on here .

This card is a get well card I made for a friend. The Dragon on the front is a High Hopes dragon, Huggable Hank. I colored Hank with Copic pens, colors G07, G12, and YG03.

Paper used has been crumpled and torn, so it resembles dragon skin. Certainly Celery CS is used as the base card, and CS used on the front is Wild Wasabi , YoYo Yellow, and Crushed Curry. Ribbon used has light green "bling" on the dots on the ribbon.

The inside of the card has a dragon on one part of the inside - Dwight , from the latest High Hopes stamps. Grass has been punched out from a punch for grass, with DP in the background. Dwight, sitting on his toadstool blowing bubbles, has been fit among the grass, and raised off of the DP with the use of pop Dots. Bubbles blown are also raised.

Copic Colors used to color Dwight are B16, V12, and V17. The toadstool is colored with RV09, RV17 and Y17. Bubbles are highlighted with B0000, adn the bubble wand used to blow bubbles is colored with R27.

The looped area on the opposite side is made from Absolutely Apricot CS, and the High Hopes phrase on the looped area is stamped on Bashful Blue CS. This should be a happy card for them when the person gets it!
