A Hambo DT TV Challenge!

Monica has such fun ideas for the Hambo Stamps Design Team! I think this challenge is very timely, since all TVs are going digital soon. I am not liking the reception so far with the "box." No cable here!
This month our challenge was to make a card inspired by a TV show. It can be a very literal inspiration, or deal with the characters on a show, either present or past. So here it what I came up with:

Can you figure out the TV show? :)
It's one of my favorites, and it's not Lost, American Idol, or 24! I have to give credit to my husband -- I could not think of a good idea (well, I HAD one, but Monica already thought of it too -- the globe with "As the World Turns"!), so I told him to start naming TV shows that were cool, oldies, or ones I watch. As he named them, I thought about all my Hambo Stamps. And when he finally said "BONES" -- I knew what I was going to do!
The inside has a computer generated sentiment that says "No bones about it, you're in my thoughts!"

Be sure to check out all the Design Team's ideas for this fun challenge:

And to be really amazed, don't miss this amazing tutorial by the artist behind those fun and quirky Hambo Stamps: TIMBO!

This morning at 7:00 a.m. I am taking a class at CHA in Anaheim from none other than Jerri Kay Jimenez - the watercolor queen! I am thrilled to be able to watch and learn from her, and hope to have some ideas for new projects when I return tomorrow night. Have a great day!
