It's Hambo Time!

Last night really late as I was trying to get my fussy kids to fall alseep all the sudden I wanted to make cards. So I did!

This image is from Hambo Stammps. Isn't it just adorable? It's called Mother Goose. I usually use bolder colors than this but I was in the mood for softer colors last night. (Probably because it was one in the morning!)
I made this one because I tried to use the ribbon on the last card and it was the wrong green. But I still felt it was great so I made a whole new card around that ribbon.
I just love this silly stamp, it's Hambo too. I think for a boy's birthday right? I just get a smile when I look at him. Hambo stamps are great for that. They make me smile. :) The "Happy Birthday" is stampendous and the crackle background is TAC.

I used marker to watercolor them all. I scribbled a bit of each color on a plastic sheet then used a water brush to pick up the color and color the image. This is one of my favorite coloring techniques but with the fun newness (new to ME) of prismacolor markers and gamsol with prismacolor pencil I haven't done this in a while. It's nice to use again. Much softer color.

My bitzy bugs from All That Scraps came today! They shipped really fast and it was free shipping! (on orders of just $10 and over, US only) So I loved that! And I got some email that I had earned a credit of like 42cents for who knows what. I really don'n know what I did to earn a credit but Hurray! heehee. I just noticed they sell Gina K too! I love Gina K and don't have any! I really went just for the bugs. They are CUTE bugs. I now have; the baseball one, the muddy one, the one with the umbrella (Thanks Michelle), and the "cutie patootie" one. I also got the stamp of just rain. You never know when you will need it to rain on your stamped world.

Speaking of baseball I'm going to a game tonight so I'll see yall folks later.
