Hambo Hoedown Kickoff & SUPER sale!

So have you all visited the new challenge in town? The Hambo Hoedown kicked off this week!! YAY!! And the best part - because it's a super weekend, they're giving everyone this sweet little football girl image to play with!

Isn't she cute? And her sweet bear too? I have to admit, I don't particularly care about the game today. I only made her jersey green to match the DP I wanted to use, it's not because I am pulling for a certain team (although I do love cheese!!). In fact, I'm sending all of my family members off to a party tonight and I plan to stay home all by myself and work in my stamp room!! Woohoo!! So I guess I *am* excited about the game. :-)

Now about the Hambo Hoedown - you MUST check it out!! If you play, you get a free digi. Plain and simple. How awesome is that??? The first week's image is right there on the blog, so go download her and get your sample made!! You have until Tuesday at 10pm. Actually, you don't even have to use this image, any Hambo design will do - but the theme this week is football. I can't wait to see what you make!

And speaking of Hambo - they are having a SUPER sale this weekend!! 30% off of all regular-priced stamps!! WOOHOO! And there's a contest, if you guess the Superbowl score your order is FREE. Check out the details here!!

Back to my card for a minute, in addition to the Hambo Hoedown, I also played along with Jen's February Sketch For You To Try for the card layout.

In fact, I loved Jen's sample card so much that I borrowed more than just the sketch - I loved her rounded corners, and also her cute ribbon/button embelly. Thanks for the inspiration, Jen!

I also have to tell you about the stitching on my card. I meant to do a zigzag stitch, but my machine didn't cooperate and I got this tight little straight stitch. At first I thought it was awful and almost threw away the card, but then I decided it was sorta cute with a little girl image, kinda kid-like, ya know? So I went with it and added it everywhere. Happy mistake!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a SUPER GREAT day!
