Hambo Hoedown and QKR Stampede Challenges

The challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown is to create a CAS card with Hambo stamps, and Anything Goes at QKR Stampede. I love CAS cards and am a big fan of Hambo stamps as well- both "real" and digital, so I had fun designing this card. The best part is the chuckle the person who gets the card will get when they open the card:

"With friends like you, who needs anemones?" Isn't that funny? And I love how the card opens in the center to reveal another set of circles underneath the orange one on the top. Fun sketch I am sure I found on Pinterest somewhere. And as it typical of my CAS cards, I embossed the whole thing with any embossing folder- this one by Lifestyle Crafts.

Did you know if you enter Hambo's challenges and email them a pix of your card, you get a free digital stamp for the next challenge? And if you get published with Hambo stamps, they reward you handsomely?! That is how I received these stamps for free! Even if you do not have any any Hambo stamps yet, they have freebies to participate in their challenges with.

Stamping smiles, Karen
