"High Hopes"

Well I'm back with a last minute card. Okay, it's not last minute, I've been working on it for days, it is just that now I'm down to the wire and it's the last minute to get it posted to Phindy's Challenge blog!!
I'm not going to write much, it's late, there's no time...but..........I have to say, I LOVE the way this card turned out. I love everything about it, really, I do! I love the papers (new ones that fell into my cart on Tuesday), I LOVE the image (one of Phindy's Wee Babbies), I love the kite that I made with it's little string and tail with mini "ribbons" on it, REALLY, I love it all! I LOVE when that happens, when the final project is even better than I had imagined it in my mind. Okay, I'm rambling but sometimes I surprise myself and really like the way a card turns out - TRUST me, it doesn't always happen!!
I'll let you go, but, here are the challenges for this card:

Phindy's Challenge - A sketch by Anne-MarijeTop Tip Tuesda
y - Favourites Challenge - Well, I don't know if you could say this is my favorite embellishment sin
ce it's the first time I've ever made a kite embellishment but I LOVE the way it came out and so, it's my favorite embellishment!
Scrap-Creations - Kids - I think Phindy's new "Wee Babbies" are just the cutest kids around! Well, I think her "Cuties" are pretty adorable too!! Oh, it's so hard to pick just one to use on a card!!!


  1. Katie, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it too. The papers are awesome and your kite is wonderful with those precious little ribbons. I think your shopping trip was a success.
