Paper Boy at the Hoedown!

Wow! Is it really Wednesday already?! This week has been me playing catch up with getting things in order since we were gone last week, but I think I am just about there! Thank you to everyone who joined us on April Fools for our Go Ahead And Laugh At Us Slop Hop! I know we had fun doing it and we hope you all had some good laughs! I had a blast reading all the dreamy places you have/had in mind of where you would or will be vacationing this summer in my comments. I think I have added a few places to my bucket list thanks to you all!

This weeks Hambo Hoedown challenge is using the image Paper Boy.

The challenge is to add an extra fold in your card somewhere. For my card, the extra fold is in his wrist to make the paper he is holding up stand out. Here is a closer look:

I used Basic Grey's dp called Out of Print and colored the image using once again my colored pencils by Koh-I-Noor and odorless mineral spirits. I love these pencils as they are woodless and just seem to blend like buttah! For my border, I used MFT Die-Namics crown border. The ribbon is from my stash of no namers.

We hope you play along this week at the Hoedown! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a looksie! Don't forget to check the Hoedown blog tomorrow to see if you are a lucky winner of one of the fun digi images the Bacon Bits had up for grabs!
