High Hopes Challenge #49

WOW!!! What a fabulous weekend I have just had. A Stamp Camp weekend which started on Friday evening and finished a little while ago on a glorious late Sunday afternoon.
I was surrounded by I think 28 like minded ladies who are addicted to stamping. We made cards, we chatted, we ate, we drank, we were merry, did I mention we ate. OMG the food. I think I will skip food for thew next couple of days. I feel like a glutton.
As for the card making I did a few of the organised designs but predominantly I worked with my  High Hopes Stamps,
Here is my card for Challenge #49 over on the High Hopes Blog. The theme this week ... Non Traditional Coloured Christmas Cards.

I chose  Tree Pane Santa. I stamped on white linen textured card stock in Black Stazon and coloured with my Prismacolor pencils. The pinks and blues I chose were picked up from the words on the Christmas Designer Paper. The cream shading was a colour also picked out of the DP. The stamped Santas  have been highlighted with Frosted lace Stickles. The embellishments  were the pale blue ribbon, a silver bells charm and 3 circles punched from the pale blue cardstock. I then finished the card by adding co-ordinating pink brads to the centre of the circles for something just a little bit different.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All

I missed being at stamp camp with you so thought I would check out your blog to cheer myself up. ( I haven't had time to really do it anyway lately) Once again you totally amaze me. You have inspired me to start my calendar today! Hope you are doing well. Miss you. Michelle O'H xxx

Sounds like you had a good time. I was also away for the weekend and got back today. Time with my daughter and granddaughter made up for not getting many cards finished. Lovely bright colours and a great card Michelle.
