It is Hambo Hoedown Challenge Week #8!!! Okay...I love this digi set! Now I will admit that I don't drink coffee...(I can't actually even stand the smell of it)...I know...I am strange! Now you give me an ice cold (and I MEAN ICE COLD) Coke Zero for breakfast and I am a happy camper! I guess we all have our vices!

This week I had fun with this cute Coffee Girl Digi from Hambo Stamps! If you didn't get to play along with our challenge last week, you can get her for yourself over at Hambo Stamps! While you are will have to check out their new digi store! Give a shout out to Tim and Monica for this cool new store!

This challenge was to work with this digi stamp set AND to use the great sketch created by one of our very own Bacon Bits-Silke! The sketch was perfect for this stamp!

I found this cool DP in a pad from Basic Grey called Pyrus... I thought the colors reminded me of coffee, so I went with it! I used one of my favorite Cuttlebug embossing folders-Swiss Dots and my Pinking Circles Nestabilities Die.

You will have to check out all the other cool cards made this week by the Bacon Bits! They are all so talented!

Oh Melissa, you did an excellent take on colors in your creation; and the spikiness of the die just means CAFFEINE WITHDRAWAL!

I'm still thinking........gotta get me some coffee first!
