Hambo Hoedown and 4 Crafty Chicks Challenges


The challenge this week at 4 Crafty Chicks is to use black, turquoise, yellow and red (the SU versions of these colors) in our cards. And at Hambo Hoedown they want us to make gatefold cards featuring the digital Steamroller stamps. If you played in their challenge last week, you got Steamroller and his funny funny sentiment for free. I haven't had a chance to play lately, but when I saw this set I just had to have them, so I bought them. Next week's images I will get for free, though. Free stamps are always fun, especially Hambo stamps!

I thought of Tim Holtz's embossing folder when I saw the funny sentiment and used it on the left side of the gatefold card and on the steamroller part. Of course I paper pieced that part and the rest of the equipment and colored the operator with my copics. The sentiment was attached on the top to the left and on the bottom to the right of the center opening of the gatefold card.
