hambohoedownbuttonIt’s time for the July Hambo Hoedown. It’s a CHRISTMAS IN JULY themed challenge (going until July 30th at midnight.)

For today’s card, I used a digi called Hats Off. For some reason, this image just makes me think of Frosty the Snowman and his Magic Hat – the magic of Christmas as seen through children’s eyes is a wonderful thing – don’t cha think?

I used sort of traditional colors (I mean there is some read and green) but for fun, I threw in BRIGHT greens and black! It turned out fun… I love the summer but I am excited to have a Christmas card ready to go!

You can use any company’s image for this challenge but if you have a Hambo image, why not use it? If you don’t have a Hambo image (or even if you do), well…ALL CHRISTMAS STAMPS (Rubber and Digi) are on SALE through July. Score!!
