Hambo Hoedown "Tall Card" Challenge

I'm participating in the Hambo Hoedown "Tall Card" Challenge. I'm using the cute "Stilts" digital stamp that was sent out to each person who participated in the previous weeks challenge. I could use any Hambo stamp, rubber or digital but "Stilts" will work great for me. We are required to make a tall card.

This is a birthday card for a young boy. The base of the card is embossed with numbers. I'm trying to emphasize that he's really "getting on up there" in age. Hope he likes it.

My Card For Today

A good friends  mom passed away this week and I needed a sympathy card to send to her. I liked this sketch on Mojo Monday.

This is my card using that sketch for inspiration. I didn't put the sentiment on the front of the card but did stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card.

Hambo Hoedown 72 Pocket Challenge

It's been months since I've made a card to enter in a challenge but the Hambo Hoedown  72 Pocket Challenge looked like fun. 

We had to make a card using an image from Hambo Hoedown and the card had to have a pocket.  I used the  Hambo Hoedown Kangaroo image. I added a couple of balloons to the image. 

I put the sentiment on a ribbon decorated tag and slipped it into the pocket at the top of the card. 
The paper used is from "The Linen Closet Stack"  I colored the digi with colored pencils and used gamsol to blend.
