Hambo Hoedown - Stripes

Where does time go?  I can't believe I missed last week's Hambo Hoedown challenge which means I also missed this week's digi.  That's okay because I have alot of Hambo Stamps and digis to choose from.  I fell in love with their desgins years ago when I accidentally purchased a stamp off eBay.  When I received it I saw the Hambo insignia on it and checked out their website and I was hooked.  If you haven't seen the site, check it out here  This week's challenge was to include stripes on our project and I chose to use their cute "possum" stamp. 

I was traveling this week and brought along a few stamps and papers so I could still enter the challenge, but what I can't believe that I did not bring with me was an Alphabet stamp set.  How can anyone be away from home and expect to stamp without an alphabet set?? (rhetorical questiont)  I had to do the "HANG" the old-fashioned way, no die cuts or stamp alphabets, I had to hand draw and cut with scissors!!  Yikes!!  It's amazing how quickly we get spoiled with all the great tools that are on the market.  Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.

Hambo Hoedown - Sketch Challenge

It's Hoedown time again and this week I received the digi "Monster weights" and some great sentiments from Hambo Stamps for playing in last week's challenge.  The challenge this week was to follow a sketch.

I turned the card horizontally; colored the "monster weights" digi with my copics markers and used one of the great sentiments that came with the digi.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my bog.
