Hambo Hoedown #42

This week's challenge at the Hoedown was to use this cute Wee Henry Turkey image and to use a tag anywhere on our project. Head on over to the Hambo Hoedown to try the challenge out yourself and be eligible for a FREE Hambo digital image.

I colored Wee Henry with Copics and then cut him out and stuck him to an SU Old Olive piece of cardstock that I cut with a SU circle punch. Then I stuck that on to one of PTI's tag sale dies that I cut from the fall patterned paper pack.

The neat wooden button I actually won in a blog-o-versary contest with a bunch of other great do-dads, too. I tied twine from the Twinery in it. I punched the Hambo sentiment out with the SU curly label punch and layered cardstock and more PTI fall patterned paper to get the whole effect of the card.

So what are your plans for the big day next week? I asked for Friday off, too, so I am really looking forward to an extremely rare 4 day weekend! Plenty of time to get some crafting done, which is good because I have to make 24 handmade ornaments for my mom's yearly ornament exchange which is always the first Thursday in December. We're going to stick around the house, but on Saturday one of my friends/coworkers invited us over to her house for a Thanksgiving feast, so that should be fun. This weekend I just have to get to work finishing up all my Thanksgiving cards, then on to Christmas! Whatever you've got planned, I hope you get some nice, delicious, relaxing family time :)


  1. I love your coloring of Wee Henry and that big wooden button seems like the perfect embellishment for this seasonal card!

  2. Your coloring is perfect! Really adorable card!:)

  3. He is so cute, Jess! And I LOVE the patterned papers that you used on this card!

  4. This cute little guy looks like he was made for the tag. So perfectly colored, and I love the plaid paper!

  5. Happy Turkey Day to you too! Love this little guy - you've made him something special. Those Hambo stamps are adorable, even if turkey is the flavor of the week. Enjoy your family time!


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!
