I have tons of info in this post, so let's get right to it ok?
#1. The Hambo Howdown Challenge:
This week it's Dots and Stripes. If you didn't play along last week and get your free digi, just use any Hambo stamp and join the fun. I went with a summer time theme on my card today, probably because I'm still waiting for the spring to arrive in these here parts. Let's just say I've been using an umbrella for something besides shade! lol. Want to know a secret? After coloring my stamped image, the blue in the umbrella totally didn't match the blue in the paper. So instead of coloring a second image, I just colored the umbrella and paper pieced it on top :) Yippee for an easy fix!
Here are the stamps I used for this nautical themed baby.
#2. My term for Hambo Stamps is coming to a close and the powers that be have put out a design team call for a new group. So, if you have always wanted to be a Bacon Bit ( Don'tcha love that name?!) details can be found here.
#3. It’s a Hambo Blog Hop! And you can join us!
Our jammin’ theme is “Hamming it Up At the Movies.” Using any Hambo image, either rubber or digital, create a project that represents and depicts a movie title. Maybe it’s your favorite movie, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like. Whatever it is, we want to see your movie creations!
The hop is scheduled for Friday, May 20, and is set to go live at 7:00 AM CST. All blog hop posts must stay at the top of the page for that whole day. A prize will be awarded to the customer whose movie-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way! The winner will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo blog on Wednesday, May 25.
If you are interested in participating, please email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org
by 11:00 PM CST on Wednesday, May 11. The blog hop order will be emailed to you on May 16.
Sample blog copy for the hop will be available after you sign up, if you desire to use it.
Come to the movies with us and thanks for visiting today!
