Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Hambo April Fools Day Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the “Go Ahead, Laugh at Us!” Hambo Stamps Blog Hop! The Bacon Bits are here to help you start your month off right with a little April Fools laughter and fun.

Before we get to the cards, here is a little piggy joke to get laughing right from the start.  Ready?

Why did the little pig hide the soap?
Because he heard the farmer yell, "Hogwash"!

Yeah yeah, my hubby just rolled is eyes and said, "That's the joke you're gonna use"?  Whatever, I liked it.

Now, if you arrived here from  Silke's blog, you are in the right place. If not, you will want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog – TALK TO THE HAM. We don’t want you to miss anything!
A little surprise is hiding on one of the blogs today, so be sure to leave some comment love as you “hoof it” around the hop. One lucky commenter on the mystery hop spot will be in hog heaven and win a $15.00 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!

Not only that, each design team member will be giving away a digi image to one random commenter on their blog.  As for my give away, I will let you choose the image you want, so make sure you leave a comment before midnight April 3rd CST.  I will announce the winner here on my blog Monday morning April 4th.  You will then have one week to email your name and digi choice to designteam@hambostamps.  We love comments anytime, but remember the deadline for prize entries is midnight April 3rd CST.


My card today is made with one of the stamps in the Fractured Funnies line of stamps named How Much Chocolate (#3113).  These stamps come in pairs; one for the outside and one to finish off the inside.  I was thrilled to get this stamp, along with the cute little chocolate chip(#1723),  because I LOVE chocolate!  The inspiration for my card came from one of those fancy chocolate shops that has their goodies displayed so well that you want to eat them all!  Here is the front of my card...

And this is the inside all decorated to match :)


Do you like my ruffled ribbon? Well, it came from Hambo Stamps too!  Yes, Hambo Stamps has a whole line of May Arts ribbon and this is a 3/8" grosgrain ribbon in a yummy burgundy color (#SX25).    I just used super sticky tape and ruffled it up.



Next up on the hop is Hannah. You will love what she has to show you today!

Hi Karin...very pretty card I love the doily. I bought some the other day, need to use it! Cute joke!! I like it! You made me giggle because my husband would have said the same thing. I have a hard time remembering all of the joke so by the time I tell it, it's like umm let me start over and I'm laughing and telling the punch line early. hahah!

Have a great day!

Karin said...

Fractured Funnies are one of the reasons I just Hambo. The images and sentiments just make me smile. Not only does that inspire me, but I know the receiver of the card is going to smile too.

An invitingly darling card - yummy! Tho the ribbons are burgundy, the photo makes them look a little chocolatey, too - almost like ribbon'ed chocolate! The colors in your card are perfect with the sentiment. So when do we get started testing out how much chocolate?

Donna Clark said...

Very pretty card and I so can relate to that lol

Cheryl said...

I like the joke too. I'm going to have to try to remember to tell Liz in the morning. I bet she'll like it too. (I have been told that she tells the lunch ladies a new joke every day...)

I love your card. Fabulous sentiment and the little chocolate chips are perfect. Great ribbon too.

Have a wonderful weekend!
