Hambo Hoedown Birthday Bash

     This week Hambo Hoedown is celebrating thier one year anniversary.  And to celebrate they are using Bailey's image.  It is called Bailey Cupcake.  Bailey is their dog.  He is a cute little guy.  It is a progressive challenge.  If you play this week then they will send you next weeks image free.  Its such a good way to get a lot of free digital images.  If you want to play along just click on the link at the top of this post. And it will take you to their site.
     For my card I printed the image of Baliey Cupcake on Mohawk paper.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  The designer paper I used is from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers 6x6 paper pad.  I love this paper.  I used my Spellbinders to cut out the ovals and the sentiment.  I added a little 3D Crystal Lacquer to the bones and also to his dog tag. I made this card size A6 (4.75" x 6.5") so it is a little bigger than my normal A2 (4.25" x 5.5") size.  I am starting to like this size more. Sense it is a larger size you can use the large Spellbinders dies easier.  The brown mat was made using my copic markers.  I didn't have the shade brown I needed so I took a sheet of white cut to size and colored the edges.  I had seen this on another site and thought it was a good idea and by gosh it worked.


  1. WOW! What a cute card Gloria. Love the DP & what a good tip for making a mat. So glad you played along & helped celebrate the Hoedown's first birthday.

  2. Love the shiny bones and tag! So glad to see you in the Hoedown again!! This is just adorable. I agree with the card size too! I rarely make a true A2!

  3. Gloria, you're quick! :) This is adorable! Love the colors you've used and glossy bones just pop off that cupcake! Great coloring- as always!!!! What a fun card!
