Hop Art Designs Kickoff!

Today I have some very exciting news to share! The wonderful, kind and fabulous Asela Hopkins has teamed up with Hambo Stamps to launch her very own new digital stamp line - Hop Art Designs! And that's not all - proceeds from this digi line will benefit Operation Write Home! How wonderful, kind and fabulous is that??! Extremely!

Today I'm working with Asela's adorable Bella Ballerina!


I squealed when I saw this image because, well, I have a thing for sweet little ballerinas! Especially when they only wear one leg warmer. :-)


I love that the messages included with the image are "Have a beautiful day!" (I will use it to make little cards to stash in Courtney's lunchbox!) and "Thank you" (I will make cards for Courtney's ballet teacher!).

The rolled flowers are supposed to mimic the roses in Bella Ballerina's hand. I made simple spiral-cut flowers. I was going to use a fancy die to do them, but I had a bit of a craftastrophe. My die is currently jammed inside my Big Shot. Don't ask. How I will get it out, I am not at all sure. Sigh.


I played along with Jen's Sketch For You To Try for March - that makes me three for three this year, woohoo!


Now head on over to the Hambo Hoedown - it is the official site of Asela's launch, and one of her images is this week's freebie if you play along! You'll also find links to all the Bacon Bit blogs - we're all featuring different images from Asela's new line!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Another Hambo line! Sweet!

    And I pray for your Big Shot. I jammed a die into mine a year or so ago. There's a 3-yr warranty on them, so act fast!

  9. Super post, Libby! LOVE your rolled flowers. Can you believe I have never made one? With dies or not! And your die issues mimic mine sort of -- I totally cracked my C plate for the first time ever (have never had to replace a plate in years!) so can't cut out anything on my CB! Good luck with the jam.... Your card is so sweet and adorable - just like your little ballerina!
