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.

Green Eggs and Hambo Blog Hop

Welcome to the “Green Eggs and….Hambo!” Blog Hop sponsored by Hambo Stamps! The Bacon Bits are here to help you start your New Year’s reading list off right with a little book title laughter and fun.

If you arrived here from Melissa'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 prize from Hambo Stamps!

We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, January 31 at 5 PM CST. Our current team will be retiring that day, and we will be welcoming a new Design Team AND celebrating the Hambo Hoedown’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY on February 1st. Blog Hop winners will be announced at the Hoedown on the 1st.

My card today is in honor of the book, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.  It's about a young girl who runs away from home. She's taken in by 3 bee keeping sisters and finally finds the happiness she deserves.



 These are the rubber stamps from Hambo I used in the making of this card :)
Bee Hive # 2702
Tiny Bee #3114
Bee Happy #3103


I know there is lots to see on this hop, so I'll just be quick and say that the hive was paper pieced and glitter added to the bee wings :)

Okee dokee, next up on the hop is Pat, and I know you will love what she has to show you today.

Here is the entire blog hop list, just in case there is a hiccup somewhere along the route :)
