Go Ahead, Laugh At Us: Hambo Blog Hop

ChristyUncategorized47 Comments

Welcome to the “Go Ahead, Laugh At Us!” Blog Hop, brought to you by the Hambo Stamps Bacon Bits! If you’ve just arrived from Melissa’s blog, you’re on the right track. If not, get back to the Hambo Stamps blog, Talk To The Ham, and get started. Go!

We’re hosting this hop today to show off Hambo’s hilarious stamps, along with gorgeous May Arts ribbon. We also want to help you celebrate April Fools Day with a little laughter, and some prizes. That’s right, make sure you comment on every blog on the hop, because hidden somewhere is a $15 gift certificate good for anything (rubber stamps, digis or ribbon) from the Hambo store. You have to comment on every blog to be eligible to win. But that’s not all, because one lucky commenter on my blog will get their choice of one digi stamp from the Hambo store. You have until April 3rd at Midnight CST (that’s 10pm for my west-coasters) to leave a comment.

Now, speaking of laughter, I found this little cartoon on the internet, and thought it would give you a chuckle.

Did you know that pigs really can get sunburned? You learn something new every day!

On to my card. I have to admit, I may have gone a little overboard showcasing my ribbon. I used HA27 Double Faced Satin Yellow, GE15 Sheer Gold Edge Green, and BT98 Stitched Center Orange/Black. It was just so pretty I had to use all of it. Here’s the front of my card:

Confused? Maybe the inside will help…

I crack myself up! To make this card I stamped the Flours image 4 times, then stacked them on top of each other and curled the edges a bit to look like actual flowers. The sentiment works perfectly, don’t you think?

Now it’s time to hoof it over to Silke’s blog. You will love what she’s made today! Thanks for hopping, and good luck!

    I'm with Karen. I too didn't realize it was ribbon at first. What a cool way to use it! Love the cartoon and random fact. This would be a perfect card for my hubbie to make for me. I don't get flowers (or flour) gotta buy both for myself it I want em-lol

  2. Judy Rozema

    LOVE the ribbons – great idea! And I have always loved that flour stamp. You did a great job with the *flour bouquet*!
    GREAT cartoon! :)

  3. Monica

    HAHA – SO clever Christy! And like some others, I didn't notice the background was ribbons until I read your post, and then I had to look closer. Great job incorporating them in such a cool way!!

  6. Donna

    Your ribbon usage is marvelous! Nimble little fingers, huh? Really a darling card, and the piggy comic was like my dad and his wife — one always slathered in sunblock, the other brown as can be. Thanks for the smile! Love the Hambo images – they always bring big smiles!

  7. Dawn

    I laughed out loud over that one! Yes, I knew they could get sunburned but I didn't know they would look like that! I love the "flours" card. Your ribbon work is wonderful. I bet it took a long time to do.

  8. Angela

    Christy, here's another idea for the inside sentiment: Here's a bouquet of flours, sorry there's no dough!

    OMG!!! Love the "flour" bouquet…never would have thought of that! The ribbons are a great backgound for the image, too.

  11. Chelsey

    I want to give thanks so much for your work you have made in writing this article. I am hoping the same perfect job by you down the road also.

    You bacon bits are just so clever! Maybe if I hang around here longer, some of that cleverness will wear off?! Super cute card!
