Keeping it in!!

I have made another card for the Naughty or Nice challenge as Hambo Stamps really are fabulous for this kind of challenge, cute, quirky and very funny.  Still on the love theme,  I have used the adorably embarrassed OUTHOUSE PIG rubber stamp from Hambo Stamps It brings back memories of when I was a young girl and we didn't have an inside bathroom, I dont think many people did back then!! my Dad used to fetch the tin bath from outside every Sunday evening for our weekly bath, me first, then my Mum, then my poor old Dad, bless him!!   anyway, so the toilet was way down at the bottom of the yard, through the sludge, past all the rats.... yes this is true!!! then finally in the dark damp toilet with its eary lagging around the pipes!!!  I tell you I couldn't do my business quick enough!!!   Ohhhh the luxury of inside bathrooms!! he he.

I mean.....just look at the piggy's expression!! priceless!!

I Spy My Valentine!

Today's Valentine is a F-U-N easel card. It is simple (nothing like the ones our friend Jane makes) but I love this card! AND as usual, when I make an interactive card, I can't stop playing with it!!
My image is a Hambo Digi Stamp called SPY. 
I created a Valentine cipher decoder and the internal message is for the little spy with the cipher - You put the heart on a pre-assigned letter on the outer circle (in this case the heart goes on his first initial) and the letters of the code line up. The inner row is the code letter, and the outer one is the correct letter.
Hambo Spy
Do you love it like I do? If you buy the SPY image from Hambo Stamps and leave me a comment, I will send you a PDF file with the decoder. It has 2 sizes - the larger one that I used for my easel card (5") and a smaller one that can be made and popped inside a normal card (3.25"). The smaller one doesn't have a heart on it so you could use it for times other than Valentine's Day. And don't worry, it is really easy to make!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you have a great Valentine's Day!

I Dig You!

Hambo Stamps has the cutest little critter in the Digi Shop!  Miner Mole!

Hello!  Bacon Bit Juliana, here.

But this guy? THIS guy, I like:

He just DUG his way right into my heart!
AND I happen to know he has chocolate under his helmet!!

Thanks for stopping by the Hoedown today!!
