My Cycle!!!

I think it was on pinterest or somewhere on the web while I was roaming (and wasting another day of my life!!) that I saw a similar saying to this one, I think it was a whole lot more insulting tho, I was even gonna make this card really rude and use the F word, but backed out and just put "back off" instead!! I got the inspiration to use red splatters from a card i did recently on the SCS site for the Dirty Dozen Design Team of which I am a member, it was an Easter card and the splatters were to depict the blood of Christ. I wanted an image of a really angry lady, but this is the only one I have, from Indigoblu's Pomp and Pageantry set. I have entered this card in this months Naughty or Nice challenge which is One For The Ladies.

Hello there Hambo friends, and welcome to the fantastic "Ham and Bacon" blog hop, I just love hambo's blog hops, and this one is all about Kevin Bacon....get it!!! Bacon!! (nice one Lyn) lol. Anyway, the thing is that you have to use any Hambo Stamps image to depict any Kevin Bacon Movie!! and wow!! are there a few to choose from, so I cannot wait to see what movie everyone else has chosen. I had lots of ideas, even...can you believe it....The Hollow Man!!!! but it was too complicated to do!!!(him being invisible and all) ...btw...that looks a great movie, am gonna have to watch that sometime. Soooooo I finally chose to depict..... Apollo American historical docudrama starring Tom hanks, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris, and of course Kevin Bacon, a 1995 film that dramatizes the aborted Apollo 13 lunar mission, en route, an on board explosion deprives their spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply, forcing NASA's flight controllers to abort the moon landing and turning the mission into a struggle to get the three men home safely. So here is my card......

I have used 3 separate images for my Pop Up Box Card.. the astronaut and saturn are from the SPACE BOY SET, the moon is the MOONSCAPE digi image, and the earth is taken from the GLOBE rubber stamp. I loved doing this project, and can you believe it, It folds flat, so is great for mailing!!!! the images appear suspended, but are actually on acetate strips glues to spaced bars at the top of the box, which is surprisingly easy to make. 
Hambo Stamps will be giving away a $15 digi shopping spree to one randomly drawn hopper who leaves a comment at each post along the way, also there will be a "Best In Show" prize!!!,  the deadline for commenting is Monday April 14th at 10.00 pm EDT, the winners will be revealed on the hoedown Blog on Wed, April 16th, so why don't you leave me a bit of love, then  hop on over to and see which Kevin Bacon  movie she has chosen!!

Oh Dam!!!

I made a card similar to this for another challenge, but the sentiment was quite naughty...ooooh la la.!! (scroll down a few posts and you will see it), so now I have modified it for today's dry embossing challenge, I have altered the sentiment to a love themed card, and emphasized the dry embossed background by rubbing a brown ink pad over the raised areas. The BEAVER is a digital image available from Hambo Stamps.

Please come back on Friday 11th of April where Hambo Stamps are having a blog hop, the theme is Kevin BACON!!!! LOL, using any Hambo Stamps image to depict a Kevin Bacon film. Can't wait!!
