Hambo Hoedown 121 ~

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

It's Hambo Hoedown time again and this week I'm using the newest Digital Image called Pirate!  I think he looks like he's trying to be scary, but inside he's just a big teddy bear!

The twist to this week's challenge is to create a project that incorporates a MAP! It can be designer paper, hand-drawn, clip art, real map. etc.  Remember, you can use any Hambo Stamp; digital or rubber, or.....any other stamp of your choosing, and be sure to follow all of the rules over at the Hoedown.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 212 ~

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday 212!

The sponsor of this week's challenge is Bugaboo Stamps!  I enjoy the line of Topper's and this is one of the Kid Pocket Toppers that I think is just too cute.

The Grand Prize winner this week will receive 7 digi stamps that total $21!


Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago.

Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Here are the two things that explain how this card came about;  the rhinestone drink is from one of the Michael's bins for .25 cents (I couldn't resist) and then I saw this saying on something out in blogville, so somehow those two things came together in my mind to make this!  I hope you enjoy your Saturday as much as I plan to!
