FEBRUARY Mid-month Inspiration

So sorry for the delay!! Winter has finally made its way down South. I have been without internet and electricity for a couple of days and... NOT fun. I am at a hotspot now so how about a little mid-month inspiration? 


The theme this month is "Symbols of February" which means:
  • Purple (Feb Birthstone is Amethyst)
  • Violets (Feb's flower)
  • Fishes/Water (The Zodiacs are Aquarius until the 18th and Pisces from the 19th on.)
We cannot wait to see how you interperet this!

You can use any company's image for this challenge but if you have a Hambo image, why not use it?

The two winners of the challenge will receive a free digi of their choice from the Hambo digi store. You can enter this challenge once with a non-Hambo image or as many times as you would like if you are using Hambo images...

Now for a little Bacon Bit inspiration to get you started...


Jeannie - Violets (awesome paper) - using Bailey Flower


Jane - Fishes - using Snorkel Boy

Lyn - Purple- using Flowers


Please link your challenge projects using the inlinkz button below. If you are uploading to an online gallery, use HamboHoedown1409 as your keywords so we can find your creations. If you are using a Hambo image, add Hambo as a keyword too!

Symbols of FEBRUARY

It's a new month and it's the first Wednesday of the month which means... it is time for a Hambo Hoedown! This Hoedown will last for the whole month of February (until March 1st at midnight.)

The theme this month is "Symbols of February" which means: 
  • Purple (Feb Birthstone is Amethyst) 
  • Violets (Feb's flower)
  • Fishes/Water (The Zodiacs are Aquarius until the 18th and Pisces from the 19th on.) 
Now we aren't looking for Valentines (unless they fall into the above) - there should be lots of challenges that offer a Valentine's theme so we want to do something fun and unique! This should be awesome!

You can use any company's image for this challenge but if you have a Hambo image, why not use it?

The two winners of the challenge will receive a free digi of their choice from the Hambo digi store. You can enter this challenge once with a non-Hambo image or as many times as you would like if you are using Hambo images...

Now for a little Bacon Bit inspiration to get you started...

New Stash Challenge

My oh my how the weeks fly by!! we are now two weeks into our monthly Hambo Hoedown challenge, and this months challenge is all about making any  kind of creation and incorporating  your newly acquired stash, if you are anything like me, I am always "acquiring" new stuff!!!!!  I don't know how my craft room hasn't dropped down into my kitchen yet!!!! Yikes!! and it doesn't help with internet shopping, it is all just too easy and readily available at the touch of a button,...good thing for me, bad thing for my credit card. So anyway, we would love you to join in with our fun challenge, I can't wait to see all your newly gotten stash.
Here are a couple of examples to get your inspirational juices flowing.


Jeannies fabulous card using MIME available in rubber and clear stamps, using her gorgeous little stash of enamel hearts.


Jane's card using ROLLER BUNNY available in rubber stamps, and using the Memory box florina stencil.

Sending hugs and kisses to DT member Lyn who has the lurg, hope you feel better soon Lyn :)
