Nursery Rhyme Fun


Welcome to the last Hambo Hoedown for May!  This week I got to play with the cool new Moonscape Background Digi stamp from Hambo Stamps!  Our challenge is to use this background and also use texture somewhere on the card. 

I decided to do a fun card featuring the moonscape and their adorable farm cow digi.  I kept thinking that MY cow didn't quite make it OVER the moon...So, instead he had a little accident and kinda crashed into one of the craters on the moon!

For the texture aspect, I used a piece of handmade paper that has splotches of silver paint on it.  I thought it looked a lot like space and the splotches looked like stars, so I went with it!

I have seen some of the other cards made for the challenge this week by the Bacon Bits and you will LOVE THEM!  What a cool group of ladies.  GO BITS!

This is the last week of my tenure as a design team member for the AWESOME Hambo Stamps, but the new Bacon Bits are going to WOW you with their skills starting next month!  I can't wait until the official announcement hits the pig pen!

I have had a blast and will definitely be lurking and participating in future challenges as time allows! HAMBO STAMPS ROCK!!!!!

Copic Colors Used:
Moon: C00-C7
Cow: E30, E31, E33, E35
Bell: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Collar: R22, R24, R27

This is the most hysterical card I've seen in ages. I love it! And the paper you used is perfect. Thank you for the laugh first thing in my morning...

Your sense of humor has always brought a literal LOL, Melissa! I LOVE the way you put cards together and the sentiments you come up with. This could be your best yet! The farm digis are some of my favorites and that cow just looks so forlorn sitting in that crater. A BRILLIANT idea, woman! The sky paper is perfect - wow!!

I know we will see ya around. Have a great summer - I hope your camp goes well!!

Oh my gosh, this is a scream! So funny & creative. I don't know how you came up with this.
Get this - I live in Asheboro! I have a friend in G'boro who's kinda into card-making, but other than her, there is nobody doing cards that I know. Sad, huh?
If you ever need someone to go to a stamp store or show, let me know!!
