Hambo Hoedown #2

One of the places I get my irreverent sentiments is Hambo. Their Fractured Funnies are a hoot! So anyway, yes, I lurk on their blog. They've recently started a new challenge blog called Hambo Hoedown, and even though I didn't play last week (week 1), I've decided to play in week 2.

You could use any Hambo image, but I bought and downloaded this cute Eye Monster which comes with two sayings, one of which I used here:

This piece of paper from Primamarketing was on top of the "yet to be filed" pile in The Captain's Quarters, and I thought the pattern would be cute with this image. The dotted piece is the reverse side, and I declared the blue in the dots to be Marina Mist. The rest was coloring and futzing with the layout. The reason the main image is placed where it is is because I wanted that row of cute critters to show at the top of the patterned paper. And yes, I used "is is" in that last sentence.

I really, really, REALLY wanted to use red flock on the heart, but I only have pink and blue and brown and white. Boo. So I settled for this SU fine red glitter. It is everywhere now, so I bagged and tagged these guys right away (I made 3.)

OOPS! I forgot to add an extra heart. Amuse yourself for a second; I'll be right back. ... ... ...

Okay, here's my REAL card:

Phew! That was close. Thank goodness I still haven't figured out where to put that piece of glimmer paper from last month's Stamp Camps. ;/ Yeah, the reds are a bit different, but shhhhh! ... don't tell anyone.

Speaking of Stamp Camps, I need to go link this at the Hambo Hoedown blog, then get to bed. I have a full house tomorrow for both the morning and afternoon sessions, and I need my rest! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
