Super Chicken???

Hambo has really outdone themselves with this cuter-than-cute digi-image, Caped Chick!  He really thinks he's all that! 

Hambo Challenge Blog has a new challenge this week.  You can choose any card from their blog or gallery and "CASE" it -- meaning cardlift a design and make one of your own cards like it!
My easel card uses sky blue patterned paper, a few fluffy clouds, the Caped Chick digi image, paper pieced and layered with dimensional tape.
Very clean and simple.

For my inspiration to cardlift or CASE, I chose an easel card by the very talented Hey Hey Paula.  She showcased Hambo digi image "Cool Dog" on her round easel card (I just rounded the corners).  Her colors were in the blues, as mine are.  And of course, with most easel cards, you can have fun with a one-two punch sentiment, like my play on those famous words from the old black & white Superman series (yeah, i know, you don't remember it, but I do!), "Look, up in the's a bird, it's a plane...No, it's Superman!"

There are tons of cards in their gallery to get inspiration when your muse is in hiding!  I have several I want to go back to and try my own hand at their designs!  And you can of course join in the Hoedown challenge for your chance to win free digi's or a blog badge.  So put on your dancin' shoes and play!
