My Stapler... Hambo Hoedown

Welcome back for another fun Hambo Hoedown challenge! Did the title make you laugh? Do you even know what I am talking about? lol!  I just love that movie "Office Space" and I thought the line that makes me laugh every time deserved to be the title for this challenge! :)

This weeks challenge is to incorporate office supplies into your project or card.  I love this kind of challenge for two reasons: 1) it had great additional elements into the project and 2) I am an office supply junkie, so there is always something I can rummage for a project. :)

For my card, I used Hambo Stamps Thumbprint stamp and coordinating sentiment which I thought would make for an interesting card with office elements.  I kept thinking fingerprints on a computer, coffee mug rings with fingerprint files, etc.  But I settled for a corkboard strip to staple up a little note and some tickets I have had from 7Gypsies.  The patterned paper is Echo Park's This and That collection which again, met this office supply theme pretty well. I used the dp as the main panel over the card and used some ribbon and metal accents to finish it off.  Something fun and out of the ordinary!

We hope you come play along with us and remember that you can use any stamp image you would like as long as you follow the challenge.  Be sure to check out the other Bacon Bits creations for the week! Thanks for popping in and have a great day!
