I am tickled to have finally found the time to participate in my very first Hambo Hoedown! Yee Haw!! This week's challenge Hambo Hoedown #8 is a Sketch challenge. Since this is my first entry entry I chose to use a freebie from the Hambo Stamps site and then followed the Sketch from the challenge. Here is what I came up with:
Isn't she adorable!?! Actually I have a hard time convincing myself that this is a female cat because our family pet has the same coloring but is male - but I'm sure he wouldn't be caught dead in those flowered flip flops! lol
I am particularly proud of this card because my just turned 13 year old son, Jesse, did a majority of the coloring. After adding the stripes he became discouraged and was going to toss it out. I asked him if I could finish it and try to use it and this is the result. I like it so much that I plan to reproduce a few more for Operation Write Home. The coloring was done with Stampin' Up! markers, the dp was from my scrap pile, the card stock is all Stampin' Up!, and the sentiment I typed out in MS Word.
I am really looking forward to receiving my first FREE digital image email for next week's Hambo Hoedown! Come back and check it out this time next week. ;)
I will also be entering this card in:

Happy Stamping and God Bless!
P.S. If you think Jesse did a good job with the coloring (he did everything but the drink and the flip flops) please leave him a comment - I will be sure to share them with him. Thanks!
