Getting It Out of My System, Part One.

(Scroll down to my next post to read about my fun celebrity encounter this morning!) :-) It's really bugged me that I didn't find time to play the Color Throwdowns the past couple weeks - so last night I "got it out of my system" and stamped what I had intended to stamp the weeks the Throwdowns were issued! Both cards use super cute new Hambo Stamps from their latest release, I just love their people stamps, they make me smile. :-) The first one is the Fisherman - when I saw the Color Throwdown #31 colors were Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss and Night of Navy, I immediately thought this stamp would be a perfect fit! I paired him with the Happy Father's Day stamp and BAM! I have my dad's Father's Day card made, months in advance FOR ONCE! (Oh who am I kidding? I'll probably stick it in my Etsy shop! LOL!) The sketch was last week's Mojo Monday sketch - as usual I didn't quite make the deadline for that challenge either! Really love this sketch though, it's a keeper! The second card uses one of my FAVES from the latest Hambo release - Stamper's Back - you already know how much I adore the buttcrack stamps!! I'm just goofy like that I guess! So you saw me recently working in the garden, here I am stamping away in my Stamp Cave! And look at me in those hot pink pants, woohoo! Those don't look as HOT in person, they did not photograph well - but in general I don't think I chose the right color marker to match my Regal Rose paper! LOL! The colors for this card were Color Throwdown #32 - Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana and Regal Rose. Such a pretty combo - sorry ladies that I added HOT pink into the mix, LOL! This sketch is Taylor's latest sketch - another fun one!! I love this new Hambo sentiment "To stamp or not to stamp?" - the inside of the card reads "That's a dumb question!" How true is that?? :-) *sigh* Ok, I feel better now that I've gotten these Throwdowns out of my system! Hopefully going forward I'll make cards the weeks the challenges are issued! HA! Famous last words... ;-) Thanks for stopping by today!
