The new release starts late tonight!! Over 75 new stamps going into the catty over at High Hopes, Sunday Feb. 15, right after midnight, EST!
I have another sneak peek for you today! How do you like my old buzzard on the joshua tree?

I colored him with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, and used Twinkling H20's to deepen the shadows. Tombow pens were used on the party hat.
I hand wrote the saying and got the idea for a flag-like tab for the sentiment from Anna Wight. She does those a lot on her cards and I love it! Lacey Stephens inspired me today with this beauty of a card with the way she used her sewing machine. So I went a little nuts with mine, kinda like she did and I love the effect! Only I used white thread and it doesn't show up nice like hers. I will have to use a colored thread next time! This card does double duty, not just for the High Hopes Hullabaloo, but also the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers today.
Hope you're liking the new releases so far! I sure had fun drawing them!!
TFL and God bless you!
