It's Hambo Time!

It's Hambo Hoedown time AND a wicked sale over at Hambo Stamps!

This week at the Hoedown we are to use hexagons. I frantically searched my stash to find anything hexagony-ish (is that a word? lol) I found this lovely paper and went to work.

I used the adorable digital stamp 'Bailey Flower by Hambo Stamps. '

So what is this wicked sale I speak of? Check it out here
Have a great day!

Pollycraft Design your own stamp

A while back Jellypark asked it's followers to suggest a digi. If yours was picked you won the digi for free.
I had suggested making a person for a symapthy card. I often find when you look at the digi shops under 'sympathy' there are butterflies or birds, rarely sad looking people.

I'm not sure that is exactly what they were hoping for but guess what....

they chose my idea! Isn't she lovely? It also came with 3 sentiments; thinking of you, sending you a hug, and sorry to hear your news. Perfect.

So thank you very much Jellypark
I think you did an amazing job :)

Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by

It's Hambo Hoedown Time

It's time once again for another weekly challenge at the Hambo Hoedown! This week's challenge is to use their digi called 'Cells' and use circles.

I googled mason jars and found this clip art jar. I cut it out 3 times. Once in the shape of the card. Once for the blue card stock (with circles) and the third time with acetate. (which I might add is uber hard to photograph!)

I sponged the edges with blue ink, coloured the cells with copics and laid them under the acetate. I then added a ribbon and circle tag to complete the card.
It really does look cuter in person. I so need a new camera (hint hint Santa!)
Thanks for stopping by :)

The Gift Challenge

Head on over to the Clear it Out Challenge Blog cause it's time to showcase "the Gift'. Either use a gift digi on your card or showcase a gift/talent you have. I chose to make this card using an image from Melonheadz (who is the sponsor this week) and a SU flower I've had forever!

Nikki has several freebies on her blog and offers great sales/bundles. I highly recommend you visit.

So what is 'the Gift' I chose to make my card about?

 My gift is being able to bring people together. Be it organizing events at school, helping others in need, or something as simple as running the challenge blog.

 I've always been the 'go to' gal to organize and I'm always surrounded by people. You'd be surprise to know that I am deathly afraid of talking in large groups and prefer to be in the background. I enjoy seeing the smiles both from the people that participate and those that receive from their generosity. That is the 'gift' I feel God has giving me.

Digi Darla Fancy Folds

I was asked to come up with a creative idea for a birthday party favour for a 3 year old's party. I knew my friend wanted to give away earrings, but the question was how to give them away. She had yet to determine a theme.

Enter Digi Darla's fancy fold challenge! I was looking through my fancy folds tutorial file when I came across the perfect idea

I printed the pattern onto cardstock and made the box. I added twine with the thought my friend could hang these from a branch (or flower stem). I printed, coloured and glittered the butterfly digi from Digi Darla Designs. This is the perfect size to hold a pair of earrings. What do you think?

(please ignore my wonky bow, the glitter was still wet so I couldn't adjust it yet) Yes, I am a tad impatient-lol

Enjoy your weekend :)

It's Hambo Hoedown Challenge Time!

Well, I have a confession. The water colour challenge at the Hambo Hoedown scared me a bit. It's been a while since I used my aqua painter for good reason...

It's seen better days but, I was up for the challenge. I took out my much neglected Stampin' up ink pads and went to town. I actually found my frayed tip made some pretty neat flowers.

Here is my card for the challenge

I used the image 'Bailey' by Hambo Stamps, my favourite go to digi stamp. The sentiment is from (SU) and the papers, buttons, and thread is from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by!

Yeah, Faith's challenges are back!

Head on over to the Designed2Delight blog, Faith has started her progressive challenges again! Yeah :)  I played along when she had them before and loved it! It's always fun to see what others do with the same image :)

Here is my card.

 I popped up the pumpkins 3 x's, as well as, the owl. I wrote Whoo? several times. The inside reads " the best teacher evah? You that's whoo!" I'm sure my sons teacher will be cringing at my grammar-lol
I shaded the paper pieced pumpkins and coloured the owl with my Copic markers.
There is one week left to play along, so head on over to D2D and play along!
Have a fabulous day

Anything goes at Meljen's!

This week at MelJen's the challenge is anything goes! I needed to make a birthday card for one of my 4 nieces celebrating this month and came up with this.

This cute little image I won a while back on a blog hop MelJen's had. I just love it! The 'celebrate' is a rubon from Making Memories. I coloured her in with copic markers.

Thanks for popping in. Have a great day!

It's Hambo Hoedown Time!

It's a sparkling good time over at the Hambo Hoedown this week! Using the digi image from Hambo Stamps called Harvest Bunny I created this card.

He is popped up on dimensionals. I added a mask, sparkle to the pumpkins (and faces), a bow and used up a sentiment I had lying around for a while (I think it's from Stampin' Up) Thought I'd send this one in to a teacher for Halloween this year.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by. Have a happy turkey day :)

Progressive Challenge at the CDAC

I have been holding on to this card for a bit in hopes of being one of the 'stars' selected at the CDAC progressive challenge.

The image is from Doodle Pantry. I just love when an image makes me smile. I could (and will) be using this one a lot more in the future. Although I didn't become a 'star', I still love this card and thought I'd share it with you :)

I cut her our several times and popped her up with dimensionals.  I printed her on a pink paper then shadowed her with my copics. Isn't she cute?

Thanks for stopping in, have a wonderful day!
