Creations in FELT with Hambo Hoedown

Our neck of the Country is still in the grips of winter, every few days we get a little snow, a little sleet or freezing rain.  SO, It's only fitting that the image that we are using this week at the Hambo Hoedown is Penguin Snowball-a digital image by Hambo Stamps. He comes with 3 sentiments and he sure looks warm with all the FELT on him!  We were to add felt to the card so I made snow from some white FELT, cut out a scarf from raspberry FELT and by cutting the area around his arms, was able to tuck it behind his flippers.  I cut the stocking cap out of the same color FELT, fringed the pompom on top as well as on scarf and put the details on each with a fine black marker.  The inside is finished with the snowflake paper.
There are many things going on right now at Hambo Stamps:  There is an open DT call and they are accepting applications until the 19th.  There are many new items in the Hambo Store for you to check out like clear stamps, inks etc.  And there is a BLOG HOP coming.  Our jammin’ theme is “Name That Toon.” Using any Hambo image, either rubber or digital, create a project that represents and depicts a comic strip! Maybe it’s your favorite one you read as a kid, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like! Whatever it is, we want to see your comic strip creations!  The hop is scheduled for Friday, January 18, and is set to go live at 7:00 AM CST.   A prize will be awarded to the customer whose comic strip-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  The winner will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo blog on Wednesday, January 23.  You won't want to miss it!
