Come Join Our Pastel Parade!!

Spring has marched right into season, and if that's not reason enough for a Hoedown party, I don't know what is! Grab your best spring colors and come celebrate the season, and our weekly challenge, with us. If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the left 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!

This week, we're welcoming spring with BUNNY PARADE:

This image is not available FREE unless you played in last week's challenge.
Buy it HERE!
The challenge? Using "Bunny Parade" (or any other Hambo image), make an EASEL CARD using the spring colors of lavender, yellow, pink, green and blue! Choose at least THREE of those colors for your card. (Bonus points if you use all five!) If you're new to making easel cards, HERE is an easy-to-follow tutorial by Beate Johns. Any variation of an easel card is fine, as long as it meets the basic easel rule -- it should prop itself up. :)

As always, our lovely Bacon Bits have made some cards to help inspire you:



And demonstrating that Hambo's rubber stamp images work great for the challenge too:

Remember, that you can use ANY Hambo image to play in the challenge - just be sure you make an Easel Card, using at least THREE of the pastel colors listed above.
