Take a break

Every month, High Hopes Rubber Stamps has a set of stamps that are the Project of the Month.  These stamps are available at a discount.  This month's POTM are these adorable little kiddos, Ally Rose and Bobby Lee, Bale o' Hay, Take a Break sentiment, and Sit a Spell sentiment.  I don't see them up on the website, but you can email Tina to order them.  More info is on the High Hopes blog on this post.

I'm pretty sure I've said it many times before, but My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite paper companies.  I had to use the paper that Bev sent me again from the Bloom paper kit.  Love this paper!     

I stamped my images and colored them with copic markers that coordinate with the patterned paper.  Aren't they cute?!

I added some stitching and buttons to finish off my card.  I attached the buttons with hemp.  It really fits the farm theme.

Wow, I have been a busy bee lately!  I can't believe it is already time for another Papertrey Ink release tomorrow night.  I can't wait to start sharing what I've been working on.  I'll also have some sneak peeks of the next High Hopes release which is Saturday night. Wait until you see the adorable images Crissy has drawn for us this time!  Hope to see many of you at the Papertrey release party!
