Swinging High Hopes

When I saw the High Hopes sketch I immediately thought of making a swing card but I forgot the thread goes from top to bottom this wouldn't be too much of a problem if I didn't have to photo it. what a pain that was she wouldn't stop swinging. I 3d the whole image so I had to wait for one side to dry before I could do the back.

It was taking far too long for a simple card, the papers are Pebbles and I used punches for the flowers and the swirl was die.
Look at this candy isn't it fab, you've got to 14th April to comment and link for this gorgeous stash at Carole's blog.

The cooker is finally brought. comes next week and its the one that I didn't really like but its a compromise and hubby says it stands there most of time not working just looking pretty!
