High Hopes Challenge #77

Good Morning!!! It's challenge time again over at High Hopes and this week the lovely Amy Leggate, my fellow Canuck, holds the reins!! Amy's challenge this week is "Spring Flowers". It's been so cold here where I live these past few weeks that not a lot of flowers have been poking their heads out--finally we are starting to see the sun!!

I have been wanting to try the monochromatic technique for some time now and decided to use it on this belated Mother's Day card for my mom. With Jules being down with the chicken pox I never got to visit my mom on the big day and was a little side tracked when it came to making her a card.

"Andrea's Kitties" is the name of the High Hopes stamp I used and it's amazing how much she looks like me when I was a kid--cartoon version of course ☺ Although my kitties would have been fully clothed in doll clothes and would not have been as well behaved!!

I have also entered my card in Copic Creations "Monochromatic Challenge" and into the Spoonful of Sugar "Cute & Girly Challenge".

I do apologize for the poor picture quality--I tried unsuccessfully for 2+ hours to shoot this card and after that I felt like really "shooting" it!! ☺

Here's a closer look at the image...

I just love this look--it reminds me of old black & white cartoons. Yes, I am old enough to have watched them as a child on a regular basis ☺. The first part of my younger years was shot in B&W so that gives you a little hint of my age.

Well there you have it!! Go check out what the rest of our super-talented DT has done with this week's challenge --> here!! Enter your own version of "Spring Flowers" and you could win yourself a free High Hopes stamp!! I can't wait to come by and see your creations!!!!!!!!!!!!!
