Hambo Hoedown #28 - It's A Sketch

Time for another Hambo Hoedown challenge! This week we got this cute image (free if you played last week and remembered to email them your card image):

A cutie-patootie hedgehog! And here's the sketch they gave us:

I printed off two images like I do every week. Why? It's easier; wastes less card stock; if I like my card I can easily make another one; and more truthfully: I always mess up, so I need a back-up. Case in point:

Darling, no? I went in search of DSP remnants to use and found this piece from the 12x12 MASSIVE Sweet Pea stack from SU (long-retired). I thought HOW CUTE with this little guy standing amongst the flowers. But I had to cut him out, and I did. Every. last. hair.

Post-assembly, as I grinned at my accomplishment, I glanced to my right and saw the sketch I'd printed and failed to follow. NOW do you see why I print two images?!?!?!?! Sigh. I need a keeper.

I went back in and made this one:

Better. Sigh.

In other news, I skipped the market this morning, so there will be no pictures of fruits and veggies. I have my Stamp Camps tomorrow and I'm so far behind with things that I just needed a day to catch up. So yeah, I made cards.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to vacuum and cut up card stock and find the tops of my tables. Then I'll reward my efforts by making more cards. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your posts always make me laugh! But this time I panicked as I had forgotten to email my card in - so thanks for the reminder!
    Cute cards - how patient of you to cut all the hairs on hedgie!
    I thought of you as I was at our Farmer's Market today - a very small FM. But I came away with pie, bread, 'maters, and cukes! no dogs, no flowers, no crafts - Sigh!

  2. This guy IS a cutie-patootie! Both cards look FAB to me. I love Love LOVE the way you made the flower scene out of DSP & that gorgeous woodgrain is gorgeous. ;o).

    P.S. Vacuuming! What's that?

  3. Leslie, I love both of your cards. The first one looks so cute with flower scene.I like the patterned paper & the die cutframe in the second one. Glad you play with us every week. I love seeing what you make.

  4. They are both adorable! I love the DP in the second one too and the lacy square. Thanks for joining in the hoedown again :)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
