This week's Hambo Hoedown image (free if you played last week and remembered to email them your card) is this adorable house:
I immediately saw a Dr. Seuss house. :)
This week's challenge is to incorporate something from around the house that you don't normally see on a card! Um, well, I kinda stretched this a bit, and used something you won't normally see on one of MY cards. First, here's my card:
See those trees? They came from this household object:
Yep - a tissue box. So I guess my title would be "Home Is Where The Tissues Are". :) Now, I know a lot of crafters that would say this is a "normal" item to incorporate into a card, but not in my world. I just don't ever do that, unless someone challenges me to do so. I thought the pattern on this box would make cool trees for the Dr. Seuss house, so that's what I did. The strip of grass behind the house is a piece of the flap that I ripped off the side of the box. It's jagged and I think it's perfect. I also used some of the blue dot thingies. Please don't ask me what they represent, because I honestly don't know, but I do think they look cool there.
Other stuff I used: SU sentiment, SU Pacific Point card stock, A Muse Studio cloud dies, and ribbon from my Every Color of Green and Blue Ribbon But The One I Need box. Oh, and both SU markers and Copics for coloring.
I'm now going to link this over at the Hambo Hoedown, and email it to them before I forget. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
