Good morning, Friends 🙂

A couple of days ago, I caught a glimpse at this image by Hambo’s Tim Hunter that just stole my heart.    It had been posted to Facebook and I made a comment about how much I liked it.    Tim is one of my favorite artists.   His whimsical style and humor are right up my alley.   I use to design for Hambo and can tell you that Monica and Tim are two of the nicest people out there.

That got me to thinking about my experiences with stampers over the last seven years that I’ve been involved in this hobby.   Stampers are some of the most benevolent people I’ve ever come across.   When another stamper is in need, they’re right there.   I guess you can say that since we make cards, we are in the “emotion business”.    I think that’s is a great deal of what keeps me tied to this hobby… the people.

So, for today’s Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers, I used the adorable Toy Chest image from Hambo Stamps.


I created the sentiment on my printer.   Any mother of a boy knows this one to be true!


Here are my deets;

Thanks for stopping by today and thank you to all the stampers out there.. you’re an amazing group!  Blessings,

    ROFLMBO 😀 What a fabulous sentiment to go with that image. As much as I love Lego and watching all the creativity it inspires in kids as they make things, it is the bain of my life LOL! Even worse when you step on a little square piece with bare feet!!

    Fabulously coloured image and use of the sketch 😀 Love all the bright “boy” colours you used too. I tip my hat to you Holly, I have one boy that wears me out but good sometimes and you have four!!! I bow in your general direction 😀 Have a great day and thank for popping into my blog the other day, was great to hear from you 😀

    Ooh – I LOVE it Holly! What a perfect sentiment for that image, and one that I can totally relate to, after spending all of Sunday afternoon trying to clean/organize my son’s room — only to have it trashed again within hours. (Minutes?) Thanks for the smile and kind words!!

    Now this is the most adorable scene Holly, and so beautifully colored too!! What a charming, charming card!! I have to agree with you too. Stampers are some of the kindest, most generous people out there, and I too feel blessed to know so many. You included. Fantastic work, as always!!!
