Hambo Hoedown -- at the BEACH

Hello!  Are you loving the start of your Tuesday?  I wanted to share a little beachy inspiration with you today; my entry for the Hambo Hoedown (#3).  I am LOVING this progressive challenge Hambo has going on, each week you get a new digi and a new challenge to play along with!  Provided you continue to participate, you get the next week's digi in your e-mail, just in time to stamp some more!  Can't be beat!  Thanks Hambo.  :)

Here's my contribution to this third week of the Hoedown, where our theme is BEACH.  I {heart} the beach!  Too bad we live so very far from it here in Wisconsin.  *le sigh*  But this hungry little pelican is right at home!




I want to share another creation as well.  When my DS#1, who is 6 years old, saw me printing this sweet lil' Hambo digi, he HAD to have one too.  He wanted to color like mommy.  I DID NOT tell him that I was planning on making a "beach themed" project, I just printed Mr. Pelican for him and we both went to work.  {Obviously, it's not a stretch or anything, but still}.  Here's what he presented to me:




TRULY!!  Could this *be* any cuter??  I love how he added the background scene.  No doubt about it, that boy is all mine!  :)


Thanks for stopping by!  I'll see you tomorrow with a new Wednesday Challenge from Paper Pretties!

Your card is darling, love the paper you chose and your coloring is great! However, it is slightly over shadowed by the multicolored one below...lol! That is just too sweet :) Thanks to both of you for joining in the Hambo Hoedown this week!

Oh my - your son's pelican is just TOO sweet! It reminds me of how my kids always color those chili peppers at Chili's! LOL

Your card is lovely too - especially the great papers you paired the pelican with. Thanks for playing along with us this week! :)

Lovely fun card! The DT works just right with that little pelican. Your son did a great job on coloring his pelican.
