Hambo Stamps DT Call :)

Forgive me as its been a while since I have posted. I have been making cards, but due to internet issues, I have been having a hard time posting.

So, on Facebook the other day I noticed that Hambo Stamps is having a DT call. I wrote on my friend, Lena's wall and said that she needed to sign up! Then she told me... I had to do it. (It took a lot for me to get the confidence to do the Bombshell DT call... so I was thinking about not doing this one.) She and I bantered back and forth, and soon enough. I CAVED. I wrote my little email with all my submission 4-1-1 (information for those who dont know what those #'s mean).... and well... I am proud to announce my two submissions for Hambo :) NO LAUGHING!

This image (Ice Cream Man) reminds me of two things, Bert from Mary Poppins. (Bert is Dick Van Dyke's 1 of 2 characters in the movie.) and the other Baskin Robbins Ice cream. I almost wanted to color him like the character Bert, but I decided against it. Maybe the next time I make a card with this image I will keep that in mind. Also, the colors remind me of the Baskin Robbins logo. I would have loved to have added a sentiment, but I didnt think I had enough room, so the inside will say, "Whats the scoop?"
 "Bert" has been colored with Prismacolors, and Stampin Up stampin write markers. All papers came from a DCWV Baby 8x8 stack. I love how none of the patterns should have came together like that, but it makes it fun!  All flowers have come from a stash of them I have had for YEARS and havent used in along time.  All brads are glittery, and come from Recollections.
This Wee Henry, is Wee Henry Snorkel. When I saw him, it reminded me of when I took Diem to the pool this last summer, and she had a pink floatie similar to this, but it was princess. Diem had goggles too, that she never used, just kept them propped on her head the whole time.   Now, this image took a lot longer for me to come up  with an idea. But I knew!!! I had to use my Glossy Effects on this one.                       So for the card details: I had some left over scrapbook paper used (Yellow squares) I dont remember the company, as it came in a kit, The sunshine, glasses, and sunscreen came from a pack of demensional stickers that I embellished myself. I added glossy effects to the shades, and on to parts of the sun screen.... Not to forget Wee Henry... He has been colored with Prismacolor and SU markers with Glossy effects on his goggles.

I am some what satisfied with how these turned out. I submitted them to Hambo today, and their DT call is open until May 15th. :) Feel free to check them out.  As for these two cards, they are going into my stash of Operation Write Home cards. They are need of a great home :)

I would love to be apart of the Hambo team. 1) they have such cute images! and 2) they do a lot of work along side my favorite organization, Operation Write Home.
