"GO AHEAD AND LAUGH AT US" SLOP 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.
Q:  Why did the pig run away?


A:  She thought she heard the salesman tell the farmer
to sign on the dotted swine!  ~Snort!!

If you arrived here from {Libby'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 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!

My card today is made with Hambo's Sweat Hog Stamp.  I stamped the image twice.  Once on the white base and the second on some pink polka dot dp.  I then watercolored sweat pig's clothes with a darker pink, cut it out and added it to the base.  I layered the image with some nestabilities and used some larger polka dot paper for the background.  Of course I had to add some bling and ribbon and gave her hooves some shine with Crystal Effects.

And I am giving away SILLY BIRDS WITH HATS as well! To be eligible to win this digital stamp, simply leave a comment and tell me your favorite embellishment.  One lucky commenter will by chosen using random generator.


We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, April 3 at midnight CST.

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

Oh that Sweat hog is darling, and now that I'm back in the workout mindset, a perfect card. Me, I love INK. COpics, but I also love to smear, edge, dab, pound, rub and otherwise pigment my personality onto my cards using ink. I ink, therefore I am-didn't someone famous say that???
Thanks for sharing your card, a laugh and possibly a prize!!

Well, Beverly, you know that my cards always include some kind of texture so I would have to say that no card is complete without a touchable element.

How fun is this!!? Love this cute Pink polka-dot card!

kim said...

ooeh.. pink!! and dots!! Polka dots remind me of the 50's. pettycoats, grease (movie).. and then a sweating pig. HA.. Maybe she's dancing on a Grease song ;-)

Like the bling on the black nesties frame. Gives your card that little bit extra :) lovely!

My fav embellishment? I like a lot of things.. ribbons, buttons, photo corners.. and so on.. But i think my all time favorite is the Brad.. Hmhm.. brads.. They come in al sorts of colors and sizes and designs.. they even come as button designs.. so who needs buttons anyway(lol).
I use a lot of brads on my cards. Bad thing about that is that I dont have a stash of brads anymore. Need to buy some soon..

anyway, great card! It really makes me smile :)

Have a great day and happy crafting!!
