Spring Follows

Welcome back High Hopes Fans!


I can't believe it is Thursday already and my turn to post some inspiration for you. I also can't believe it is my last post for April already - Yikes! where is the year going?! 

I had some fun playing with "Country Outhouse" this week. Honestly, coming up with a sentiment was probably the hardest part. It was definitely a challenge to keep my cheeky, dry sense of humour at bay.....I will save those sentiment ideas for my brother's cards I think.......




After colouring up my stamp with alcohol markers, I fussy cut it using my faithful cuticle scissors. It was then added to an ink blended background I had on hand from a "play" session awhile back. 
The paper from the It's A Girl Dots & Stripes collection gave me the perfect country feel back drop was looking for. 
A matching fence cut out with my Cricut and some flowers added a spring feel. Some White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter drops were added to the flower centres as well as the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped and cut out with a fishtail banner die.
I just realized there is a flower missing from the roof that I accidentally cut off and forgot to add back on.......shhhh ...don't tell the boss!
