Hambo Blog Hop

Welcome to "Broadway Bound!" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Broadway show titles! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Deanne's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

 A prize will be awarded to one participant whose Broadway-themed creation  tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all of the blogs along the way. The winners will  be announced on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Tuesday, September 25. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 23 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

My card depicts the musical The Full Monty. The Full Monty is about six unemployed steelworkers who decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives' enthusiasm for the Chippendales. They declare that their show will be better than the Chippendale dancers because they'll go "the full monty" — strip all the way!

I used one of my favorite Hambo stamps, Flasher. I just love this guy in his trench coat! Today he's not flashing. He's in the spotlight dancing and going "the full monty"! I thought the sentiment What's Up? was perfect to make this card a little on the naughty side!

Hope you enjoyed the show. It's not over yet. Dance over to Loll's blog for another great Broadway hit!

I'm Back at the Hoedown!

I didn't plan to take the summer off, but I was so busy that I just didn't get around to stamping & posting. It was a great summer though...time with my granddaughters, time at the beach and an amazing time with my family on an Alaskan cruise! Now that things are back to normal, whatever normal is, I hope to get my mojo back & start stamping!

I've really missed playing at the Hoedown with the Bacon Bits so I'm glad that I had a chance to play this week in the Hambo Hoedown Challenge #82 - Show Us Your Gifts. The challenge is to use a Hambo image, rubber or digi, to show your anything goes!

I love to make special fold cards, so I made a pop up card for the challenge. My card was inspired by LeeAnn Greff's card that you can see here. I used Party Sheep and Get This Party Started to show my "gifts", which are inside of my pop up card too!

Here's the front

Here are my "gifts".

It was fun dancing at the Hoedown. Stop back on Friday to see what I made for Hambo's "Broadway Bound" Blog Hop.
