What's the News?

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown! If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the sidebar to see how this all works. Play along each week with a Hambo Stamps image (rubber or digital) and you are in the loop for some awesome FREE images! Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies and JOIN US!
What's the NEWS? This week, it's NEWSCASTER!
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email. 
Buy it HERE!
There are four sentiment options, and if you choose to use a sentiment this week, we would like to see one of these four, rather than a computer generated sentiment.

Our CHALLENGE THIS WEEK: Using NEWSCASTER and one of the four sentiments, make a project that incorporates newspaper on your creation.

Everyone that followed last week's sketch challengelinked to the Hoedown blog post and emailed us a photo of their card by the DEADLINE received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! Images are sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM. 

And to inspire you:
I love all of Karin's embellishments and how she added the newsprint to Newscaster's papers!
Melissa was so clever to use the weather section for her background! I love her tiny little sentiment on the news copy!
Jessica's newspaper date made me laugh out loud when I realized it was a birthday card! So fun!
How will you use newsprint? Remember that you don't have to use Newscaster. BUT we do require HAMBO images only - and you can use ANY of those for our newsprint challenge this week!  We have a wonderful line of rubber images, as well as digis and we like seeing those too!

See anything new?  This is a sneak peek of what's to come tomorrow.....NEW RELEASES IN THE HAMBO RUBBER LINE!!! Be sure to check out Talk to the Ham and see what the Bacon Bits have lined up to show you that is BRAND NEW!
Judy used her newsprint as a border on this card with BRAND NEW RUBBAH!
