Hambo's April Fool's Blog Hop!


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.  One of the wonderful things I love about Hambo Stamps is how funny they are!  Make sure to check out the pull out tab on my card:


If you arrived here from Karin’s blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you may 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 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!  The deadline for this prize is Tuesday, April 5th.

I have one more prize for you today:  A free Hambo digi of your choice!  All you need to do is leave a comment on this post by Tuesday, April 5!

My card today is made with Party Chicks - 2701 and Birthday Wedgies - 1204.  I coloured the chicks in with my Copic Markers (leaves-YG17, YG07, YG03; blue hat-B97, BG07, BG02; orange hat-YR18, YR15, Y17; pink hat-R24, R22, R20; chicks-Y17, Y21, YR20; beaks-YR18, YR15; balloon-R29, R27, R24, R22; nest-E99, E97, E34, E21; tree-E99, E97, E35, E34).  I cut out extra party hats to be able to pop them out and give the image dimension.  I also added chunky glitter on the balloon!


Here's the inside of the card:


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

Something you'll probably notice is that all the Bacon Bits are using fantastic ribbon available at Hambo Stamps!  My ribbon didn't quite make it in time to me (mail to get to the Yukon takes forever!), but I'll point out my favourite ribbon!  Scroll down to check out the Webbed Weave!  Is that awesome or what!?

Here's the blog list:

Hannah *You Are Here!*

I'll leave you all with a pig joke to go with our theme!  Here you are:
What do hip pigs call their ladies? Fine swine!

Have a great and fun day!
Hannah
