I'd be lost without you!!

This week the Hambo Hoedown is all about incorporating a map of some sort on your project. My mind started whirring and dont ask me why but I had a vision of the cute BOAT image on the MOONSCAPE, (both Hambo Stamps digi images) looking out to earth, lost his way!!! so that is where I rolled with this card, a bit crazy I know but..... cute.
I so look forward to each Wednesday to see what my very talented fellow design team friends at HAMBO STAMPS have come up with, it would be great if you could join in. hope to see you there :)

"Wheelie" Luv U

I have made this card for todays SCS try a new technique challenge, todays challenge is all about angled backgrounds. Well I made this card, took a photo, downloaded it, put the watermark on, downloaded it to the Splitcoaststampers'd think that I would have noticed the faux pas!!! have you realised what I mean???? I will tell you... my angled piece is in the foreground...not the background...OOOOPS, but I think it is cute so I am gonna submit it anyway (and hope nobody realises) hee hee. Anyway, I have used two digi images for this card, TREES and RACECAR, both can be purchased from the fabulous Hambo Stamps.

I am joining in the Hambo Hoedown again this week, and the challenge is to use numbers; ie diecuts, chipboard, dp...anything with numbers. I have been pondering what to do with the TREES digi image from Hambo Stamps. As I was coloring them in with promarkers I came to a realisation that there are 4 trees (obvious I most people!!), but I had my head in another place with these trees with another idea, then it struck me, YEW TREES!!!!! and so, 4 YEW was

One Of A Kind

Today's Hambo Hoedown Challenge is all about going on their Pinterest site Hambo Stamps projects for fun and inspiration , and casing a card from there. Well....still loving the "Apple Eaten" digi image from my last post, I remembered a card that I saw by Ardyth, called "Many Tanks",  I adored it and so I have cased my card from hers. You should pop over to Hambo Stamps where they have brand new stamps (and some pretty amazing older ones too!! catch the new stuff at

Love you to the Core

I am joining in the SCS color challenge today, the colors are Pear pizazz, old olive, and daffodil delight. I have used these colors (or nearest to them with promarkers) to color in my "Apple Eaten" digital image by Hambo Stamps. I did the sentiment on the computer and made a little tag with it, and added some raffia....I love that stuff!!! I added a metal heart brad.....cute!

Bat Boy and Banners

Yippeeee my favorite day of the week...Wednesday, or to be more precise Hambo Hoedown time...yeee hawww. This weeks image from Hambo Stamps is BAT BOY and the challenge is to use banners or pennants on your card. this is the point where I am wishing I had bought the banner and pennants dies that I have seen so much of....sigh, anyway I cut out my own, inked round the edges and stuck them on some silver cord that I had in my stash, et voila :)

If I am looking a bit like the cat that got the cream today it is because I had an email from Craft Stamper Magazine yesterday, telling me they would like to publish one of my cards made with a Hambo Stamps image that I submitted.....YAYYYYY, fame at last. I will post a picture of the card in the magazine when I am allowed.
