Hambo Hoedown Challenge Time!

It's Hambo Time!! (insert happy dance-lol)

This week's challenge:  choose any technique from the Splitcoaststampers Resources Page to make your project. I chose to do the technique called: Acrylic Post-It™ Note Holder  
I have been a long time member at splitcoaststampers (maybe 5ish years?). It has great ideas, tutorials, and hosts creative people from newbies to published talent. The best news is it's easy to navigate and totally free. When you have some time (seriously, you are going to need time because there is soooo much on there) go check it out!

Anywho, back to the challenge. Since I have dedicated my blog to using what I have on hand (or trying to) I decided to switch up the acrylic frame for one I've had in storage. So without further ado here is my project:
I used Snail Rake from Hambo Stamps ( a freebie for playing last week) and coloured him on the computer. I then did some shadowing with markers before I placed him in the frame. I free hand cut out some leaves, chalked them, and added a handmade button. 
I think this turned out cute and I might make up a few more of these with the changing season. What do you think? 
Oh...don't forget deadline for Hambo Hoedown challenges end on Mondays now, so hurry up and go get creating!
