What's Shakin'........Jack?

Oh my goodness! It has been raining for over 24 hours straight (and I mean pouring!).  Last night we had tons of thunder and close lightning and I couldn't get Blogger to cooperate with me.  I do love rainstorms, but my newly planted lettuce and tomatoes have had enough. Last night I had to pour off the water (almost 2 inches) on the lettuce.  I have my garden in pots on my porch because we have lots of little bunnies around looking for snacks! This morning I have had to restart my computer several times to even sign in here to do my post. But here I am and glad for being inside. And glad to be able to type with two hands for the last time for about a month.....and we don't have to water the grass! So, there are lots of good things too. LIKE.......MOONSCAPE!
Today at the Hambo Hoedown, the Moonscape background is the image for the Bacon Bits to work with.  It has so many fun possibilities, and you have to go see what the team made with it.  There are some great samples today!

For my card, I used Moonscape plus Hammer Time.  That jackhammer is making some big craters! The optional challenge is to add texture, and I pulled out some fibers to add to my sentiment tag to look like a meteor or comet.  I haven't used fibers in forever.  Remember when they were all the rage and you saw them on almost every card?  I have tons of them all wrapped around cute little embroidery thread cards, and am on a mission (to the moon?) to use them up! Click on the card for a close-up!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will check out the Hambo challenge we have every Wednesday.  We have tons of fun! Next week we will be announcing our new Design Team and have a special treat to show you then.  I want to give a personal shout out to our current team in the Frying Pan:

  3. Great combo of images! I LOVE this card and the fibers totally make the tag look like a meteor flying across the sky! I hope everything goes well and you heal up real quick...If this is what you can make while dealing with pain, I can't wait to see what you create when you are feeling 100%!!!
