High Hopes: Hopeful Ant

Happy Monday peeps!
It's my day for posting over at High Hopes blog :)

Did you know that you can now help yourself to a free High Hopes digi of their famous ant?  You'll find him by clicking on the tab at the top of High Hopes blog

So if you haven't got any High Hopes stamps (or just haven't got this one!) feel free to use him to play along in this month's Anything High Hopes Goes challenge ... the winner gets 2 stamps of their choice :)

I've used the stamp version of this digi ... Hopeful Ant.  I've coloured him with my much loved Derwent Inktense pencils to match my scrap of DP.  Orange gems from stash.

Other Challenges:
Simply Create Too 79 - anything goes
CAS-ual Fridays CFC136 - watercolour
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - all creatures great and small
As You Like It - favourite CAS or fussy - I definitely prefer to make CAS cards, I've tried 'fussy' but mine always look rubbish!
Addicted to Stamps #131 - anything goes
