Celebrate With the Throwdown & Dance with the Hoedown


The Color Throwdown is celebrating FIVE YEARS!!!  I was honored to be one of their first guests designer back in July 2009.

The Color Throwdown remains one of my favorite challenge blogs to this day!  It is always a great starting place when I sit down to craft.

The folk at Color Throwdown are having a great celebration for their 5th birthday.  Head on over there to get some more inspiration and links to even MORE inspiration.

For this occasion the colors are like a summer party!!  So I hope you can play along!!

Also this is my second card as a guest designer for Hambo Stamps and the Hambo Hoedown!  Check out the Hambo Hoedown  This week we were challenged to use office supplies on our cards!  Fun, eh!  IF I can't go to a craft store... I love to wander the aisles of an office supply store!

Here is my card:


Details:
  • Image and sentiment:"Bad Connection" from Hambo Stamps Digital Image Store
  • Paper: Kraft; So Safforon (SU!) Melon Mambo-ish and Bermuda Bay-ish cardstock from Bazzill;
  • Accessories: Copic Markers, Spellbinders die, hole punch, heart punch, bakers twine, paper clips, foam tape;
I hope you found inspiration here for both challenges!
Check them out:

Thank you for stopping by!!

Oh, that image is adorable, and you've colored it beautifully! I especially like the dotty bg you made. I love all the solid color cs rather than patterned paper. Really makes the elements on your card pop!
