Hambo Hoedown fun

Hambo has a fun challenge each week on their blog "Hambo Hoedown".  This week (since I participated last week), I got the Penguin snowball digi stamp set for FREE!  Click HERE to go to their challenge.  The challenge this week was to use the Penguin as well as felt somewhere on your card.  It IS hard to see in my picture but I really did use felt.  It is the tag cut from a Spellbinder's die behind the sentiment.  In real life it gives a nice warm feel to a cool blue card.  The penguin was colored with copics...naturally!

The crystal hat pin, buttons, baker's twine, and patterned paper are from Eclectic Paperie

On a personal note.......we have been busy at home planning on how to survive once Ray is home after March 7th.  He took a severance package at work.  He has suffered under a bad boss for two years.  He isn't sure what he wants to do next....I guess we will figure that out.........soon I hope!  Finances will be really hard...........hope another job shows up sometime this year!

Hi! Your card is such fun! Love the blue palette and all the textures on your card. Never thought to cut felt with Spellbinders; good to know!

Cute card, great use of the embellishments.

I'm sure Ray will find a new opportunity to do something he really wants to do. It's a great chance to examine what he really enjoys and is good at.
