Hambo Hoedown Splatter Up!

  Woohoo two weeks in row. I so love this weeks digi  " mouse painter". I really think he is adorable. I used him on a card for this weeks challenge at Hambo Hoedown. The challenge was to have splatters somewhere on the card. Oh how I love glitter glue!!. A sweetheart of a lady at church had a heart attack last week and she will really enjoy the "glitz" of the card. I made a shaped card as it will be hand delivered and I do not have to worry so much about the perfect fitting envelope LOL. Yep, just call me the lazy crafter!

I also used "mouse painter" on a layout this week..... I am definitely going to get some mileage out of this little guy!

As you can see I just think he needs to paint rainbows. I think next time I use him I should try something else. This was a fun layout as I did it the same night as we took the pictures and I so rarely get to do that. I used it for the September challenge ketch a SNC. I know aren't my precious grandsons just adorable!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
Have a truly bleesed day!

Mojo Monday 257

  Geez, I really need to do these sketches more often. They really       s-t-r-e-t-c-h me!!! I started with the ribbon and then made the sunflower. I knew the sentiment I wanted to create but picking papers UGH!!! I have the hardest time with paper choices  when I use a sketch! Really not sure why that is but it just seems to take FOREVER. I am still not totally thrilled with some of mine but have decided to call in DONE! Therefore, I am going to make a true effort to do more sketch challenges to see if I can improve in this area.
  This is the sketch. I really like this sketch a lot and hope the next time I use it will go a little quicker LOL.

and here is my take on it!

Now I have to go and put away a ton of paper that I drug out!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit with me today.
 I truly hope that you will have a most blessed day!

A Birthday Card and A Challenge

   I adore Hambo Stamps. I found them a long time ago and wanted to enter challenges but.......well life has gotten in the way. Now that I am trying to get back to my paper. This is on my list to go back to. I am entering the Hambo Hoedown challenge this week. If I link it properly (never figured that part out before LOL) then I will get a free digi for entering the challenge!!
   I needed to create a birthday card for Adrienne and already knew that I was going to use the Hambo digi for the card so it was just a matter of adding some torn paper. Which worked sooo well with this card!! I am very happy with the way it turned out!

I so love using MTC to print and cut my digis. I can easily resize and change the color and then cut it out!!! I also am pleased with the "crowd"  I used stamp pads and pencil erasers.Certainly something I  will get a lot of use out of with this sports addicted family!!

Thank you for sharing your day with me!

Live the Life you Imagined!
