Hambo Hoedown "Kickoff" Challenge

ChristyUncategorized6 Comments

It’s finally here! This is the inaugural week of the Hambo Stamps challenge blog, the Hambo Hoedown. That means I finally get the share the card that I gave you a peek at last Friday.

Since this is the kickoff challenge, and everyone’s getting geared up for the Super Bowl, the theme of the week is football!

I laughed out loud the first time I saw this stamp, and not just because it’s so cute. Both my sister and my sister-in-law are huge Steelers fans, so I just knew this image would make a great card for either one of them. So I knew from the beginning my main colors would be black and gold.

The inside of the card says “I’m bowled over.” I know, punny. I must have been channeling my dad when I came up with it. With Valentine’s Day coming up, this would be the perfect card for the spouse of a Steelers fan. Come to think of it, my brother and sister-in-law are newlyweds (*cough* hint, hint, Michael! *cough*).

If you’d like to participate in this challenge (and get the adorable Football Girl digi stamp for FREE), head over to the Hambo Hoedown now!

    Very cute, and I can't believe that Michael hired you to make a custom Valentine for me in his absence!

    The STEELERS, on the stairway to SEVEN! Woot, woot!

    This card is great. Thanks for sharing. Too bad Pittsburgh couldn't pull another win off. Congrats to the Packers.
