HamboHoeDown week 34

This week they gave us a cute image of a submarine to use.. I forgot to bring that with me to the lake so I am using my Hambo Halloween Witch  for my card. They are doing Operation Troops this round. My card will be going to the troops as well but thru a different route. I used copics to color my witch and several colors that remind me of halloween to design the card. Once again I was limited because I didn't bring many supplies with me this time.. but I think she still turned out way cute. colors are much brighter than they appear taken with my phone.

"House" it going ?

This week the challenge for Hambo Hoedown was to use fun house 2 digi set and use something from around the house you don't normally use on your cards. I got this neat digi image free from playing along last week. It's for sale HERE. I colored my house with copics made some grass at the bottom pop dotted and made my tree out of a POPCICLE stick painted brown, hand cut my green tree top and added fall leaves.  I made my cards 6x6 size . This was a very fun challenge for me I love thinking outside the box.

4th of July spread

Done this layout for the June crop and since we are doing 4th of July items thought I would share mine. Used the A child's year cricut cart for the characters and the Independence day cart for the words. Forgive me for not taking the pic straight, it is an entire 2 pg spread.

Pop Up Card Challenge

We were asked to do a pop up card for this week's challenge.. I folded my card in half and marked equal lines on the folded side with 2 inches apart made straight lines 2 inches high. Then you cut those lines and fold your cut inward. Once your fold is creased open the card folding the little cut you made back and the card frontward. thus giving you a pop up when you hope the card.

The front of my card PP measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 then I cut strips of paper 1/2 inch wide for the ones running side to side. Using a MS punch I punched out the edge of 2 of those strips.. the 3rd strip (brown/pink dots) is MM packing tape. I inked a paper dolly cut it down to half size and put behind my picture.
The picture is a print out of a vintage card. Added 3 flowers and the butterfly and makes a great birthday card. Inside you will see a butterfly to match the one on the outside.

For my project I am using my final scrapvivor challenge a 6x6 card since it pretains to spring and flowers. I was sent a bag of items and choose to use the crocheted flower which I sewed tiny red seed beads on.

Items in my bag I used are the clear flower frame to draw the eye to the hydrenga flowers,the crocheted flower,red seed beads and the white dollie along the edge. Printed off the words smell the flowers and added the dragonfly and butterfly.
