Hambo Hoedown and the Carpenter

No, it's not the beginning of a bad joke... :)  It's Wednesday so it's time to Hoedown!!

This week's fun challenge is to incorporate an item or two into your card or project that a carpenter would use.  Ruler, wood, those fun screw brads, etc.  This was a perfect challenge for me to use the fun screw brads I feel like I have had forever.  I guess I should find more uses for them.

What you can't see here is my wood grain paper on the back panel.  I used some dp from Basic Grey's Granola collection before popping up the panel with my Carpenter image and sentiment up over it.  I used those fun screw brads on the corners and  colored this handsome man with Copics.  I added a little 5 o'clock shadow to him and some gravel ground as well.  CAS... this image fit that bill for a masculine card. 

We hope you come and play along with us and remember that you can use ANY image! Earn you badge and free digi at the Hoedown!! Also, if you missed the special birthday blog hop yesterday for Monica, the owner of Hambo Stamps, be sure to check out the details here!!  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a great Wednesday!
