It's Hambo time!

Really short post today as I'm running around for Christmas. Here is my entry to the Hambo Challenge this week-corners. I chose to use the news reporter image instead of the one provided for free by playing last week.
Hope you have time to play along amongst the business this week! Have a lovely day, thanks for looking!
I cropped all my corners and added a faux stitch. Sentiment is popped up. I left a blank space under the reporters desk to add "your expecting", or "your engaged" depending on what exciting news we'll here soon.

12 Days of Christmas at Bugaboo - Day #11!

Here we are, the second last challenge over at the Catch the Bug Blog, 11 pipers piping. The challenge today is to use plaid.
My first thought, plaid? Uh Oh.
You'd think this Scottish girl would have tons of plaid stashed away. Let's see... fabric? Nope. Paper? Nope. Ribbon? Nope. So I looked high and low and came across one single lonely piece of plaid stashed away in my scrap pile. I almost missed it-lol.
So here is my 'plaid card' for my little friends baby boy. Thanks for looking :)

12 Days of Christmas at Bugaboo - Day #12!

I can't believe it's been 12 days of challenges already at the Catch the Bug blog!
If you haven't played along you have 4 more days, so hurry and enter so you can win some free digis.
Day 12 challenge-be inspired by a Christmas song. I chose the song "We wish you a Merry Christmas"

Thanks for looking :)

12 days of Christmas at Bugaboo, day 8

Although I do own a  few tons of Bugaboo stamps I was a little stumped for the day 8 challenge: use the theme of milk and cookies. Yes, the 'go to' would be Santa but I wanted to think a little outside the box.
Here is what I came up with
inside reads " when Santa has to bring his own milk and cookies'. Get it cows (milk) and cookies in his sleigh-tee hee.
The cows are the Bugaboo image 'Holy cow'. I removed the halo (hope that's allowed) and staggered them on my paper. I used a sleigh digi from Birds Cards, coloured it, then added embossing glitter to it.
 Only 4 days left in the challenges, hurry and play along to win some awesome prizes!

12 days of Christmas at Bugaboo, day 9

The 12 days of Christmas of Bugaboo is winding down. You have  until Dec 16th to complete all the challenges and possibly win some cool prizes. Today is challenge 9, make a feminine card. Here is the card I came up with. I think it turned out pretty cute-must have been that cute Bugaboo digi I used ;)
I sparkled her hat and added some pearls (that may or may not have been added to hide the glitter glue that spilled)  Hope you play along!

12 days of Christmas at Bugaboo, day 3

Wowwy! It's time to play along with Bugaboo stamps on the Catch the Bug Blog! It's the 12 days of Christmas challenge, day 3. The challenge is to use an animal so I chose to use this digi of Jesus and the lamb. I truly believe the sentiment I wrote and I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life :)
May you know His love and peace at Christmas time and always xox

You can play along too, just use any Hambo image or pick up the Anta Claus one in their store. If you play along, you get next weeks image for free-cool huh?

12 days of Christmas at Bugaboo, day 5

Bling, Bling, Bling-otherwise known as 5 golden rings!
Hello,welcome to my blog :) I hope you are enjoying playing along with Bugaboo's 12 days of Christmas. Today I am entering my card into the day 5 challenge -use gold in your card.
This was hard for me as I am using up my stash and I have NOTHING gold. SO I had to get creative and this is what I came up with:
I ended up using my gold sharpie marker to colour in the shoes! I also added a little glitter on the berries. You have until Dec 16th to enter all 12 of the challenges, hope to see your creations there!

Head on over to the Catch the Bug Challenge blog and play along with their 12 days of Christmas challenge. There are TONS of prizes to be won and lots of inspiration!
Here is my entry for day 7-7 swans a swimming. The challenge was to create a card from the inspiration image.

I used the 'little penguin winter bench' digi from Bugaboo. I thought this image was perfect as it had the birds and greenery like the inspiration image. I added the computer generated sentiment and outlined it with red to mimic the ribbon. Thanks for looking :)

Let it snow at the Hambo Hoedown!

It's challenge time at the Hambo Hoedown and the theme is let it snow! Just for playing along last week we received the 'snowball fight' digi for free. You too can get free digis, all you have to do is play along. No Hambo image? Check in their store, you can buy the image or snag a  freebie.

Anywho, part of the challenge is to use dry embossing in your card. I used my Big Shot and SU die on my card.

My card has a special meaning this time round. Every year we engage in snow/water fight that last the season with a young single parent family. The girls there enjoy the challenge of 'getting one over' on my boys. They are so into this 'challenge' that my husband has driven over there with the kids and hidden at a neighbours house until they have come home. Only to ambush them with water guns, or snowballs-lol. Surprised? Don't be, those girls are just as sneaky!

So this card will serve as their official notice-Game ON!

I embossed a sheet of white cardstock and cut 3 layers out. Each layered I chalked the edges (which didn't show up in the picture to well). I glittered the 'game on' to help it stand out and popped up the digi
Thanks for looking :)
