Somebody Squealed!

Good morning and welcome to another Wednesday Hambo Hoedown!

This is the day where we introduce a new digi stamp and you get to play in a new challenge - a challenge that we offer every week.

This week the challenge is to use twine! *cough cough - not too much of a challenge for me - I LOVE using twine!!

If you played in last week's challenge and you emailed your photo to Monica (check out the Hambo Hoedown Blog for that info) then you will receive a free digi this week! Isn't that the coolest??!! Of course there are free digi's available at the store for you also AND a whole BUNCH of other digi images that are so dang cheap - you will want them in your digi repertoire!

This week our digi is called Pig Inmate and you can find him by clicking on link!

I made a little jail cell for my little inmate - he is actually attached on the inside of the card (see photo at bottom of post) but I wanted him to be looking through bars!  

I used the Spellbinders rectangles to make a square in the front of my card and then used two of the rectangles together to make the black "moulding" if you will. The bars are just pieces of cut Smokey Shadow cardstock.

The patterned paper is from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite 8 x 8 paper pad. I wanted the inside nice and cheery so I used the orange designer paper from the same paper pad!

Why don't you join us in our challenge this week?! You must use a Hambo image but with the free digi's available - you have no reason not to join us!!

Thank you so much for visiting me today!


  1. Bonnie, this is so clever!! I love the bars - that never even occurred to me! Super cute and fun papers too~!

  2. Soooo cute! That piggy sure is pretty!

  3. So cute Bonnie! You and I had the same idea for putting piggie behind bars! I love the paper you used, one of my favs and the way you have him standing on the sentiment. Looks like a little door mat into his cell! SO fun! I hope someone will "spring" our little fellas so they don't miss the birthday party ;)

  4. Great card Bonnie! I love that green gingham paper and the 'window' you created for you inmate. haha!! Awesome!
