Let's Snorkel!

Anybody up for a snorkel? This weeks Hambo Hoedown challenge features this cutie...Snorkle Boy! And the challenge to sparkle by using your choice of sparkly fun!

For my card I colored the image with my Copics and cut my mats using some dp from Reminisce and BB from SU! I then used my Nesties to cut out the circle in the center that holds the bag with some hand sanitizer and glitter from Our Craft Lounge. I used Scor-Tape to adhere the bag to the mats to and then added more to adhere that to the base of the card over the image. Here is a closer look:

I added some twine from Queen &Co bought from Lilly Belle's Paperie which I glued around the frame of the circle cut out. I used my decorative scissors for the strip at the top and added more twine. I finished off the card with the sentiment and some dew drops (remember those?) that I have had for eternity! A fun card to make and your recipient most likely won't be able to stop squishing it! Lol! I thought my boys would ruin the card before I could show it! They loved playing with it!

We hope you hop over to the Hoedown play along with us! We have a new group of Bacon Bits to show off so check out their awesome creations!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Confession time: I have never made a gel card!! Shocking, I know! This is totally adorable!! Love the dew drops -- I have oodles and have been trying to use them more often. Love the creativity on this, Deb! So glad you are staying for another term!

  2. Deborah, what a great card. Like Judy, I am confessing that I have never made a gel card either...and this was such the perfect image for one. I'll be studying this one when I finally plunge into gel. So grat to be on the team with you.

  3. Awesome gel card, the twine frame is great.

  4. Deborah, this is so darn cute!!! The gel technique was perfect for this image!!! And, I actually HAVE done that technique before!! :) It was a challenge on SCS years ago. I love how you framed the circle with the twine. Cute. Happy to be on the Hambo DT with you!
