Hambo Hoedown #39

This week's Hambo digital image is this cute little newscaster. You can check him out here. The challenge to use with this digi was to use newsprint on your card, which is the perfect combination with a newscaster, if you ask me ;)

I lucked out in this one, because I own a newsprint background stamp set that PTI makes! I wanted him to look like he was sitting at one of those desks in the news studio, so I made the small white mat go off the page.

I colored him with Copics, edged the sentiments so they'd stand out, and then added a little library clip and three red pearls at the bottom to finish it off.

I like that this card turned out so cute, yet masculine at the same time. My dad's birthday is coming up next month, so I think I'll save it to give to him :) The cardstock is a mix between SU and PTI. The library clip is SU. Go on over to the Hambo Hoedown here to check out what everyone else created with this great image :) Also, make sure to go check out the HOGtoberfest sale that's going on on the Hambo site! You can get 30% off all regular priced items throughout the store, but only through midnight tonight. Make sure to check it out now, because this will be Hambo's last sale of the year.


  1. Such a fun birthday card! I love the little metal embellishment too :)

  2. Perfect "man" card! I like the added clip!

  3. Fantastic - love that little clip - where do you find those! Such a great card; love the colors!



I am thrilled that you have come to check out my cards :) I truly love getting comments, thank you so much for writing one to me!
