Sweet Thoughts

It's Wednesday! Which means its time to Hoedown with Hambo Stamps!  Some big changes have come to the Hoedown, so be sure to check it out! If you don't play along because you don't own some of the fun images, be sure to read the blog for some great news!!

Since this past weekend, I had been nursing my son who wasn't feeling well.  He was miserable all weekend and I took him into the DR Monday to find he had Strep.  That always calls for good times! :)  Thank goodness for modern medicine. Those meds kicked in pretty quick to at least relieve some pain and swelling.  He is on the fast road to recovery now!

This weeks challenge is to incorporate a large and small element into your project using this adorable image of Bear Cupcake.

For my large element, I used something fun! It really adds for a some uniqueness to your project and especially fun for a child's card or project.  It's called Action Wobbles. And you can purchase them right here at Hambo Stamps!  Action Wobbles allows for your image to wobble and move for some giggles from your recipient.  Here is a close up of what it will look like:

You just attach one end to your image and the other to your project.  Super easy!  Here it is in "action!"

Hopefully, that didn't make a you a little crossed eyed.. lol!  I also made this project a to be a gift box/card to hold some sweet treats. Fun to give to someone who needs a little pick me up. 

When you open the box, which is held by some Velcro, it reveals the sentiment and the "card" to pull which will have the sweets.  In this case, I placed 4 Fleur de Sels  Caramels into a plastic pouch and adhered it to the card.

I finished the card with some matching dp and a small stitching sticker from SRM. 

It was fun to make this little box/card as I always enjoy giving treats to the teachers or friends.  I will have to create more similar projects to hold other goodies.  Thanks so much for stopping in and be sure to check out the other fabulous creations from the Bacon Bits at the Hoedown.  Have a great day!


  1. So very cute and how fun to add that element, I need to get some!!

  2. Like the slinky on the escalator in the Geico ad... This is AWESOME!! I love the wobble. I always love to add that element because it is so fun. Sometimes I fear I will wear out the wobble before I get the card out of the door :~) The colors, elements, design, the fact that it is a box card, all of it just fit together for a great, inspirational project! Love it!!

  3. This just makes me smile! I particularly LOVE the photo you took of the "action" shot! Thanks for the giggle today!

  4. OOOOH Deborah, your wonderful action wobbles box card has really inspired me to make something with mine, arent they just the cutest things!! your box is gorgeous, I would totally love it if I recieved something like that. you inspire me, thank you. PS... am giggling about lyns remark about wearing out the wobble before she gets the card out the door, hee hee.
