Another day, another Hambo card...

Can you believe the card-producing roll I've been on?? This being- on- a- design- team- thing has done wonders for my stamping productivity! And so has having my parents here, entertaining the pumpkins. It also turned out that they are staying the entire visit with my sister, so my stamp room is not otherwise occupied. BUT - they leave and my in-laws arrive on Monday, and unless my sister wants to have them stay with her too (ha ha not likely!) I'm going to be without stamping access for a couple weeks. BOO HOO! So I'm trying to get a lot done this week before I have to go on hiatus for a bit. So anyway, on to today's card!! Today I used some of the Spring Arrivals at Hambo Stamps - I think this little Party Chicks image is just the cutest!!! I love the thought of little birdies partying in their nest! Today I also played along with the sketch challenge on SCS (SC166) - it was a fun one!! I chose the colors for this card by starting with the DP from my DCWV Retro Matpack - and I wasn't sure I made a good choice. But I kept plugging away on this card and in the end I really think it turned out cute!! I was also trying to make this a more masculine card - which I thought also would mean I could resist the urge to add glitter - but turns out, nope, I can't resist that urge!! Their party hats just screamed out to me for glitter!!! Oh one other thing about my stamping experience today - Monica asked me if I'd mind if I got these stamps already mounted on EZ Mount. I'd never tried it so I said "sure" - well it turns out this stuff is AWESOME!!!!! It's the coolest stuff ever - it's not sticky at all, yet it sticks to my acrylic block. I think it must be magic. So now I'm rethinking my whole way of using my unmounted stamps. Argh! Thanks Monica!! :-)
