Dustin Pike challenge at Pike's Playground!

I am a big fan of Dustin Pike's work. I love his adorable characters and he has such a creative DT!
This week at Pike's Playground, Dustin had revealed some super HUGE news....if you play along, you get a free image! How cool is that?

My card uses a  knight digi that I  glittered. I  wrote the following sentiment on the card "Sometimes your knight in shining armor......"
and on the inside "...turns out to be an idiot in tin-foil!"
I have no idea where that saying came from but I love it! Awesome saying to give to a brokenhearted girlfriend!
Thanks for looking :)

It's Challenge Time!

This week at the Hambo Hoedown the challenge theme is anything goes!

As you know from my previous posts Hambo just celebrated it's one year anniversary as a challenge blog. They mentioned one of the ladies participated in EVERY challenge they had last year, so I had to go and see just how many I had participated in. Last year I only missed 3-4 challenges. That's it! Can you tell how much I love  Hambo stamps? teehee

Anywho, one of my monkeys has done something to my printer -agh!!! So I resorted to my stash of digis I had already printed. I chose to use the digi 'bailey cupcake' from Hambo Stamps. I used some left over ribbon, border stickers, and scrap paper. I included in the photo the goodie bag topper I made a few weeks ago with the same digi. I think this would make a cute little party package for someone, don't you?
Thanks for looking, have a fabulous day!

It's Hambo time!

It's time for another fabulous Hambo Hoedown Challenge!  This week we were given the image 'Dragon' to use for free, just by playing along last week! How cool is that? We had to use gold/silver in our cards. Here is my take:
 I added my 'silver' by using a Stampin' Up brad I had in my stash.
I used 'gold' by adding gold highlights in my fire. (fire image found online on a colouring page site). Did you see my toasted marshmellow? I used Liquid applique :)
Thanks for looking :)

Hambo Hoedown-Challenge time!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to see the snow falling on the ground this weekend. The kids are just loving it and since I have a nasty little cold, I didn't have to shovel it -teehee.
I've been given a little 'mommy time' this weekend and so between having some much needed catch-up sleep, I've also been able to craft!

Here is a card I made using the Jan 25th free digital image called Caped Chick from Hambo Stamps. The challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown Challenge Blog is to use buttons, brads, or bows.
There is a sentiment for the inside that came with the digi :'s a bird.
That 'cracks'me up-lol. I love the sense of humour behind Hambo!
Thanks for visiting!
