Wow! I can't believe it is time for another Hambo Hoedown challenge already! This past week has flown by and it is time for challenge number 6.
This time we got to use this adorable Hambo Stamps St. Patty's Day Hamster in all of his Irish Finery! But, the fun didn't end there...we were asked to use a LOT of GOLD on our cards...
Well...I realized, I really didn't have much gold stuff in my stash, so I decided to do something a bit different this week. I wanted to decorate this adorable pail and fill it with gold foil-covered chocolate coins...I went to 5 different places trying to find them...to no avail. Since I couldn't find chocolate coins, I included these cute plastic coins I found at a store. However, it is not the same-I can't eat the plastic coins....*sigh*
So...my project didn't have much gold on it....but it is filled INSIDE with lots of gold!
I used a bunch of cute ribbon to decorate the handle of this pail...it makes it SO festive!
I hope you will play along this week at the Hambo Hoedown. If you didn't receive this cute digi image for playing along last week, you can purchase him and play along! OR...you can use another Hambo stamp...just use LOTS of GOLD!
AND...AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT... Check back on April Fool's Day for an AWESOME Blog Hop for Hambo Stamps! With all of the fun stamps they have...what better day than April Fool's Day for them to have a Blog Hop!
