An Amazing Feat

Over the last couple of weeks I've fallen into a routine of checking out challenges midweek and deciding which I plan to tackle on my crafting day, that will ultimately be set up to post the following week. First up on my list this week is the Hambo Hoedown. I had this fun image in my 'to be colored' box so I decided to check out the current challenge. Short of having to hunt them down adding eyelets would be easy enough. I will confess I had no intention of adding yellow into the design but I had few choices in terms of eyelet colors and ultimately I'm glad I didn't have black or white because I like the accent the bit of yellow adds.



What a fun image! I suspect there are now a couple generations who might look at this and be a little puzzled but I'm old enough to have seen plate spinners and many other old-time acts as a kid. They might not consider it all that entertaining but I suspect that even a youngster witnessing an act like this today would find it pretty amazing.

Not only does Hambo have a lot of fun image and sentiment combos, joining in on the Hambo Hoedown is a great way to get some free digis to add to your collection.

Happy Crafting!

When I saw this card on the OWH FB wall, I smiled, for I remember the plate spinners on the Ed Sullivan Show. The yellow is a good pick for the accent color. Perfect!

Such a cute card, one should never be too young to not know a plate juggler, love the yellow, really adds more energy to the performer!
