Calling All Golddiggers!

Ok, who is old enough to remember Dean Martin's Golddiggers? :)

Well, today my post is about a different kind of gold! The challenge over at the Hambo Hoedown is all about this little St. Pat Hamster and GOLD. Read about the challenge here. You might become Queen of the Hoedown!
My gold comes in many forms: background paper, gold thread trim, gold coins, gold square brads, pot of gold...did I miss anything?

If you haven't checked out the Hambo Hoedown Challenge each Wednesday, you really need to dance on over there and grab yourself some free stuff! Each week you play you get a new image FREE to play with!

I colored my image with Copic Markers and my favorite little Spica Glitter pens ( LOVE THOSE - can't live without 'em!), and then added Celestial Glitter to the coins and Easy Green Glitter to the hat band and shamrock.

Check out what the other Bacon Bits did here. There is lots of fun inspiration today! 

Last week's Hambo Hoedown card I designed won the Top Three at Send A Smile 4 Kids!  COOL!

And now for the most important part of my post:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LOVELY DAUGHTER who is 18 years old today!
Her birthday celebration is Joy #16.
