It's A Hop Art Designs Hoedown Kind of Day!

It's a "Hop Arts Designs at Hambo" Hoedown!

What's that, you say?

Something different in the name?

THIS WEEK is a very special week for us as we are launching a new line - HOP ART DESIGNS!
And YOU get the first peek!

It is a special line of digital images with an illustrator close to our hearts AND a very special COOL thing that will touch your hearts!

If you read carefully, you will see in the logo to the left, that it says "benefitting Operation Write Home." Well, OWH has a special place in our hearts and also in the heart of Hop Art Designs' illustrator, Asela Hopkins!
Asela has designed some sweet images and ALL proceeds from the sale of these images will go directly to benefit Operation Write Home!
Isn't that COOL?
How can you help?

Play along today and spread the word! Talk about it on your blog, on your Facebook page, in your online gallery -- anywhere you like! We want to let everyone know that purchasing one of Asela's images benefits this great organization.

Today you will be able to see all of the Hop Art Designs releases! Our featured image is TRENA WITH HEART:
This image is not available FREE unless you played in last week's challenge.
Buy it HERE!
CHALLENGE: Using "Trena With Heart", or one of the other Hop Art Designs images available HERE, make a project that incorporates your favorite coloring medium! Chalks, alcohol or water based markers, pencils, watercolor, sponging - but our images must be colored in. No piecing or open line uncolored sections.

Because of the Hop Art Designs kickoff, we are REQUIRING that you use one of the new Hop Art Designs images to receive next week's Hambo Stamps image for free.
No other Hambo images should be used for this week's challenge.

Here are some samples to get you going!

And, from the illustrator herself:
Now it's time to hop around and see the other designs! Joining us today are Design Team members from Operation Write Home. You can see their samples HERE.

And the Bacon Bits each have a different design to share, so take a peek and leave them some love!  I know Asela would especially love to hear from you!

Everyone that followed last week's challengelinked a card to the blog post WITH THE OFFICIAL NAME and emailed us a photo of their card on time received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! We try to get all the images sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM.
We award two different prizes each week, so let's congratulate this week's winners:
