Out With the Old, In With the Newt!

Doesn't this image just make you smile? It's a new digi release by Hambo Stamps and you can read all about the Hoedown Challenge here! It comes with three sentiments, so there is sure to be one that tickles your fancy!

I used two new things on this card: Epiphany Crafts Button Studio and Really Reasonable Ribbon's Mauve Mid Ruffle Satin. I LOVE the ruffled ribbon that RRR carries, and you can see all the colors and types HERE. My designer paper is Basic Grey's Lemonade. Perfect colors for my guy's shirt too!

Hambo Stamps is having a DT Call RIGHT NOW! We would love to have you apply! Check out the Hoedown (until Jan. 9), and check out RRR's 2 Year Blogoversary Giveaway (until Jan. 26)! HAPPY NEWT YEAR!
