HH Hullabaloo, Day 2!!

Its Day 2 of the High Hopes Hullabaloo! What's all the hullabaloo about? The upcoming new release from High Hopes!! This Sunday Feb 15 is the day all the new release stamps will go up on their website for purchase! And today I have a second sneak peek for you!
This stamp, as yet unnamed, will be up on the High Hopes website by Sunday Feb. 15, along with over seventy other brand spankin' new stamps! Be sure to go hoppin' onto the other Diva's blogs (links on my right side bar) to see other sneak peeks today!
I colored the tractor using Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I used a couple of Tombow pens in places to deepen some shadows, like under the tractor and on the top of the wheel. Gel pen was used on the little blue flowers.
I used my hem stitch on my sewing machine for the stitching and I like the pattern it made. I dusted off my Fascinator and used it for the ribbon embellishment. Man that thing is not easy to use! Now I know why it got dusty!
Die cuts were made using my Cuttlebug.
I printed a sentiment for the inside of the card on my computer. It reads, "Some things get better with age. Some things just rust. Don't worry, you're the former, not the latter!"
Thanks for looking and God bless you today!

PS On a serious note, my prayers are with the families who lost loved ones in the plane crash in Buffalo, New York, as well as those who recently lost families and homes in the fires of Australia. Lord be with them.
