High Hopes card and update

Amazing I know I am actually posting! I think this time I am actually ready to begin slowly easing into this blog. There is so much that I have been trying to do and still have to do. For instance this blog is in some serious need of revamping not to mention my life lol.
Well today's card is a High Hopes card with a bit of Quickutz thrown in . I love these bug stamps that High Hopes came out with a while ago. I have been using them for a bit, but have not had time to post them before they had to be sent out. I really like the different elements of the card. I have been branching out into different areas of crafting and am starting to include allot of die cuts in my designs. This card and envelope are cut with Sizzix XL Bigz dies. The image is colored on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper, and I used Distress inks and some Twinkling H2O's to color it in.

The inside uses some Quickutz dies for lettering, flowers, bug and file folder. The other side is a spot for the message using Spellbinders deckle rectangle die. The envelope is Sizzix. Paper is Blush from Prisme(darkest).

I hope you enjoyed today's project and I should have another one soon. My plan is to post every 2-4 days until things are more stable.

I know that problem well! I really need to go through and re-organize my tags and categories on a few blogs I operate. I am going to try and limit my categories to about 10 areas, using tags to help further group my articles.
