Hambo Hoedown Coffee Girl Challenge


The challenge over at Hambo Stamps this week is to use the Coffee Girl digi (which they sent for free to everyone who danced in the Hoedown last week) and to use the sketch provided at www.hambochallenges.blogspot.com.

Going with the coffee theme, I decided to print the digi on Kraft paper. I cut her out and pieced a little PP dress on her from a Heidi Grace pad. It looks like a sundress to me so I continued with the pinks & limes. I tried something new (I was really in the coffee spirit!) and made a pleated ruffle from a coffee filter! I think it turned out cute.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love this image. Unfortunately I didn't do the last challenge so I didn't get this one. I read about your coffee filter on OWH. It is adorable. Way cute card

Hi Sherry. I was just reading your comment on my blog. I have lots of Hambo images. They have more than a few $ of my money. I guess I just wasn't interested in the free images they were giving us to work with. But I have never seen a coffee image I didn't like. I may have to buy this one. . Thanks for visiting my blog
