Something exciting to announce...

For the month of July I am Guest Designing over at Hambo Stamps for their weekly challenge blog- the Hambo Hoedown!  I   am sooooooo excited!!!!!!  Hambo has some super fabulous and fun stamps and they come in rubber and digi. I myself like both, but there are always folks who like one version and some who like another and they have both...as they say, variety is the spice of life!

One of the other things I am coming to love about Hambo is the sense of humor they have over there, it is totally up my alley!  They crack me up with their Talk to the Ham blog and Bacon Bits DT!  LOL! I am not sure I've ever told you this but I love bacon, so this is a match made in heaven! :)

So look at the date on the calendar...can you guess what this weeks challenge is?  I'll give you a hint, think patriotic...  If you haven't guessed it yet, spoiler alert, I am telling you now- Red, White and Blue!  Each week they release a new digi that correlates with the challenge theme.  Most of the DT will be using that image for the challenge but I get to use any image.  Since nautical stuff is so hot right now and perfect for summer, I chose the Lighthouse digi for my creation.  I had so much fun creating this card.  I really enjoy coloring for one, so that was perfect and I also used these little star charms that I have been holding onto for a looooooooong time, they were waiting for just the right occasion and here it is!

Thank you so much for joining me for my my big announcement today.  I have been wanting just such and opportunity and I thank Hambo Stamps
for providing it.  Be sure to check their fun stuff out and be sure to come back next Wednesday for the next challenge!

Love all the comments - When I first opened this and saw the little piggie logo, then read your card, my mind read,

"Your'e my Bacon!"

I read it again of course and it is Beacon... LOL

Perfect colors!
