It's Hambo time!

I managed to sneak away a few minutes and type up this post. The kids are home on a P.D. day today and it snowed! So I doubt we'll be spending much time indoors today. I see snowman, snow forts, and cold toes in my future!

This week at the Hambo Hoedown it's time to 'use up leftovers'. I used the 'refrigerator' digi by Hambo Stamps to make my card.

Instead of using the traditional white/gray fridge, I chose to combine this challenge with the inspiration challenge at the CDAC. When I saw the teal, I knew what I wanted to do

Teal is my favourite colour. I would love to have a teal coloured fridge! It wouldn't match a darn thing in my house, but I'd love it! Lol. I'm going to write my hubbie's name on the yellow part between the lighter teal circles to finish it off. My leftovers is the teal paper on top (and the circles) I took those out of my scrap bin. Tons of left over bits in there! The heart is also a left over from my wedding album (15 years in May )
Yeah, I need to seriously use up some stuff. Don't worry though, you won't see me on an episode of hoarders, I 'm not THAT bad.....yet.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time...
