Track Thank-You Cards

My daughter asked me to make her track team four thank-you cards for the team to give to their coaches at the end of the season. I fired up my Cricut with the Sports Mania cartridge and here's what I came up with. I like how they turned out and my daughter did, too. :) I don't use my Cricut much for cards. I really should, though. There's so many possibilities!

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...

Hambo Hoedown Challenge #16

I really gotta quit waiting 'til the last minute to do this challenge... Things have just been so hectic lately. We're trying to sell our home, my daughter is graduating in a couple weeks, we're having a graduation party a week after that, we're trying to get a new business off the ground... you get the picture! I'm really missing my creative time! Anyway, here's my challenge card for this week. I used the Henrietta Graduate Hambo digistamp, two chipboard photo corners, my sentiment is from The Cutting Cafe and I used a star shaped button with floss tied in the center. My patterned paper was from my scrap bin.

Let me know what you think! Love to hear your comments! Be nice, though, I've had a rough week! ;) Until next time...

Another Hambo Hoedown Challenge! Week 15!

I've got another Hambo Hoedown challenge card for you this week. I used sketch #2 from OWH Stars & Stamps. The challenge was to use the Hambo digital stamp, balloon girl, along with paper piecing and bright colors. I must confess, last week I didn't complete the challenge exactly to the theme... But I didn't do it knowingly. I just didn't read the directions completely. I have a bad habit of getting the digi from Hambo and just getting caught up in the excitement of coloring it and doing my own thing with it that I forget to check their blog for further instructions. I was a good girl this week, though. I followed the theme!

Leave me some love, please! I love comments! Until next time...

Hambo Hoedown Challenge #14

This is going to be a real quick post tonight. I'm kinda pressed for time. I got the Hambo Hoedown challenge #14 done. I love, love, love this chicken digi! Isn't it just the cutest?! I used a sketch from OWH Stars and Stamps for this card, as well. It wasn't this weeks sketch, but it was a past one. I didn't really use many supplies on this one other than scrap papers and my computer for the sentiment. Well, here it is! Enjoy!

Leave me some love! Comments are always appreciated! Well, until next time...

Hambo Hoedown Challenge

My daughter and I just returned from a second visit to the University of Wisconsin-Stout where she will be attending college in the fall. She wanted desperately to go to Carthage College, but with the economy the way it is, us having to close our business due to lack of work and starting a different business, we just couldn't pay for a private college. She is still adjusting to the idea of going to Stout (her second choice in colleges). I know this is God's plan and it will all work out for the best. God's plan is ALWAYS the best plan! I pray very hard every day that God will work in her heart and that she will adopt an attitude of gratitude about being able to attend college at Stout and get really excited about it... She has a good head on her shoulders and I know in her head she fully understands. I'm sure she'll come around in her own time.

I didn't get the Hambo digital image from last week because I just ran out of time last week and never got the card done... I did get a card done this week using the King digi I didn't get to use last week! The challenge was to use a Hambo digital stamp, lace and flowers on a card. Here's what I came up with.

Let me know what you're thinkin'! Comments are always good! Until next time...
