Hogs and Sketches January 2010 Challenge

I have been a fan of quotes for some time now. This Ward Cleaver gem happens to be one of my favorite. When I saw it in a SU catalog a while back I knew I had to have it. This quote and the one from Frankenstein ("Friend. Good.") is brilliant!

I really needed a quirky sentiment to go with these silly birds I received as a FREE digi from Hambo Stamps.
How did I get a free digital image from Hambo you ask?
Well, I just made a cute card using a Hambo image or sentiment, and followed their really helpful sketch (guest designed this month by my dear and uber-talented friend, MacKenzie). Then Tim and Monica pick 2 winners (NOT randomly I might add) who win either a digital image or some rubbah of their choosing!!
Well, here is my FIRST entry this month. Did I forget to mention that you can enter as often as you see fit for the entire month?!
I had a lot of fun making this card. I LOVE the silly birds and I think the sketch was easy enough for a beginner like me, and still has so many possibilities for someone with more layering and embellishment vision.


  1. Absolutely adorable and great use of the sketch! I had to have that same stamp set because I was totally in love with the Frankenstein quote!! :-)Traci

  2. Love this! The colors are fantastic! Thanks for playing along :-)

  3. Absolutely perfect!! :)

    I love your papers, and yes, that quote belongs with these goofy birds! LOL

    Thanks for playing! Good luck! (I can't write anymore, because I reached my exclamation mark quota.)
