Tooting my Horn!

Sometimes you have to toot your own horn, right?  Well.......here are two different toots for ya!   The first toot is that tomorrow on the Hambo Hoedown, I'll be the Guest Designer.  How fun is that!!  You can visit the Hambo Hoedown by clicking on the badge on my right sidebar.  Tomorrow challenge is real frilly!


Now......as for the other tooting.......it is a stretch but this week's Hoedown challenge was to use the King image below announcing something.  Well, sometimes you just have to announce that you are thankful for something. So, I made the king's banner say "Thank You!"    I used the "out of the box" technique with Nesties.  The fabric of the banner is cut out and mounted up a layer.    I happened to have some crown brads that I got at one of the Hot off the Press warehouse sales.  I thought it fit perfectly.  His hair HAD to have a little grey in it!  ;-)  Hope you enjoy him!
