Hambo Blog Hop "Sing your Art Out"

Welcome to "Sing Your Art Out" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends, customers, and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict song titles! It might be our favorite song, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!
A prize will be awarded to one participant whose song-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a singin' wingin' way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all the blogs along the hop. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, September 21.

My creation depicts the song Thank God I am a Country Boy by John Denver.  I used the digi image called Bear Farmer and the background digi called Farm.  I used my Copics to color all the images.  The papers I used is from a 6" x 6" tablet called Oxford by Basic Grey.  These are great papers.  Lots you could use on a masculine card.  Of couse you could use this as a masculine card if you didn't apply the paper lace on the bottom which by the way was cut using a die from Marianne Creatables.

Warm up those vocal chords and be prepared to sing! Now hop on over to Karin's blog -  for another great sing-along song!
Here is a list of all the blogs particapating in the blog hop.  Good luck and enjoy!!

Hambo Hoedown 32

When I think of Autumn I think of browns, oranges, yellows and reds, so this week at the Hambo  Hoedown I did a card in oranges and yellows because we were to do a card in Autumn hues.  They supplied us with three flower images to make the card with.  I took those three images and using my Photoshop program, separated them and made a little cluster of flowers.  They kind of remind me of Cone Flowers.  I put happpy little faces on them with a sentiment that says "You make me Smile."  My card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" card.  I added a decorative paper as a background from a 6" x 6" tablet called the Forever Fall Collection by BoBunny.  You should come play with us.  Just click on the link above and it will take you to the Hambo Hoedown site.  It is a progressive challenge so if you play this week you will recieve an image next week for free.

Today at Hambo Hoedown we were to create a card with demension.  No flat cards.  Well I don't know if this is going to qualify or not but I have raised the spaceship up on foam dots.  So it really isn't flat.  I used 3D Crystal Lacquer to cover all of the space ship.  He is shinnning.  I love this little image.  And can see me  using it a lot.  The little village is a Christmas image.  It is a stamp from Great Impressions.  Hopefully it doesn't look too Christmassy.  I brayered the sky and made more stars using one of my Stamps by Judith stubbies.  All in all it was a really fun card to make.
