HHC21 Zigs and Zags

Todays challenge on the High Hopes Blog is brought to us by Anna Wight! She would like us to use zigs and zags on your card; it is open to your own interpretation. I chose to use my sewing machine, as you can see.
I stamped Ms Griffon with Versafine Onyx black ink on Canson 140 lb cold press wc paper and painted it with my Twinkling H20's. I sponged the edges of the main image with Memories Chestnut brown dye ink. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the balloons, highlighted them with a white gel pen, and added some glitter using my Diamond Dust.
Don't forget that if you want to join this challenge and post a link to your card on the HH blog, your name will go into the draw for two free stamps from High Hopes!
So, we have had some above zero temperatures, and actually lost about a foot of snow! However, we are expected to get two inches tomorrow. Two steps forward (towards spring!) one step back.
I watched "Fireproof" with my hubby lastnight. The acting and some of the dialogue was under par, however, it is worth the watch because the message was so powerful and the story was so moving. I highly recommend it.
May you have peace in your heart today, and just a little more trust in God than you had yesterday. Remember, He is good! And He loves you!
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read and look!
