Santa Bingo

I made this card a little while ago, and just realized I had shared it on SCS, but not on my blog. It is one of the 4 cards for my backgrounds class next week at Paper Wings.

I love this Santa Itty Bitty Bingo (in stock at Paper Wings), it's so fun and the Unity DT has been using it in so many fun ways! and the Stars of Worn background stamp is so versatile, I used Donna Salazar's new ink on it here. If you are looking for a good white ink, this one is the best I've found so far, and it's also in stock at Paper Wings :) I used red acrylic paint on the Santa stamp to get a bit of a different look.
Thanks for coming by today, I appreciate your visits and your comments!
Stop by the Unity blog to check out the rest of the FWF participants today!

My Farewell as a Bacon Bit!

These last four months have FLOWN by! I have enjoyed being on the Hambo Stamps design team immensely and am sad to see it end!
Today at the Hoedown, all of the Bacon Bits will be featured as we participate together in one last Hambo Hoedown together. The challenge this week was to case another card from the Hambo gallery. 

I chose this card from the rubber image gallery to case.

And here is my card using Reindeer Gift #4314 and Happiest Holidays #4305 :

I will have one more Hambo Design Team post here on my blog this week, and until then, I am SO excited to see who the next team of Bacon Bits will be!

What's On Tap Tuesday

My plan for this week's What's On Tap Tuesday was to show you this before photo (which you may or may not have seen already!) and then the much neater more organized "after" shot. However, I've been busy putting together some cards for 2 upcoming classes at Paper Wings, so before I had a chance to take the "after" shot, I went and messed it all up again! I'm incurable in my mess :(

Here's one of the 7 cards we'll be making at Paper Wings on October 9th. Sometimes the mess is worth it! *wink*
Why not show us YOUR space?!?! Link up over at Cindy's blog and show us what you have on Tap for this Tuesday!

Stamp: Unity Trendsetters Background
Paper: Neenah
Ink: Unity Hybrid
Other: Charm from Michael's, Ribbon from the Dollar Store!!!

Monster Mash~Sing Your Art Out with Hambo

***2nd post today~scroll down for Friends With Flair***
Welcome to "Sing Your Art Out" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends, customers, and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict song titles! It might be our favorite song, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Lynn's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose song-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a singin' wingin' way! Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all the blogs along the hop. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, September 21.

My card, Monster Mash, was made with the Vampire Pig stamp #2211 and some Moxxie and My Minds Eye DP. I also used one of the little digi Sign Post Stamps to house my sentiment.

Now run along, warm up those vocal chords and be prepared to sing! Hop on over to Lindsay's blog for another great sing-along song!

In case you get lost somewhere along the way, here is a full list of everyone hopping today!

Unity Friends With Flair

I am sharing a layout today for Friends With Flair, finally I have gotten a bit of my scrappy mojo back....or at least the desire to scrapbook back!
This was an old tyme photo day at my son's daycare last year. He looks so funny in that ruffly shirt, he is such a "boy" and the ruffled satin shirt is just not him! LOL! He looks quite happy wearing it though!

The paper I used is Bo Bunny Etc. and is available at Paper Wings, for those of you that are in New Jersey, you should visit there for some shopping, just sayin! The journaling stamp is by Unity (sorry I can't find the link for it on the website, it might have been part of an old kit of the month!)
If you're looking for some more inspiration today, stop by the Unity blog to see who else is hopping today!

Happy Owl-oween

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I wanted to share two different cards I made using this one Spooky Owl image by Hambo.

I just love this guy perched on his spooky little branch and I think for my next card he will need a full moon behind him, don't you agree?!?!

Pumpkin Boy

Happy Monday!
I had so much fun coloring up this digital image by Hambo! and there are so many possibilities with fence, for other banners or adding a little scene in front of it! I will definitely be using this image A LOT this fall season!
Did you know Hambo Stamps is now on Twitter?!?!
Follow us (@HamboStamps) for behind-the-scenes fun, including links, announcements & coupons!
Hambo is also having a DT call for their next 4 month term. I can tell you first hand, they are SO much fun to work with, and very generous. I have had a blast the past several months and am sad to see my term come to an end. All the details on the DT call can be found HERE!

Have a great week! and thanks for your comments, they always make me smile!
