Play along each week with a Hambo Stamps image (rubber or digital) and you are in the loop for some awesome FREE images! Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies! We would love to have you join us!

We are celebrating Earth Day a few days late with a challenge that will have you seeing green! As in, RECYCLING! And who better to recycle than GOAT?!
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email.  Buy it here!
Challenge: Using Goat and one of the sentiments, create a project that uses something you have recycled!
Our Bacon Bits have done it again, and have come up with some really fun designs to inspire you. Please visit their blogs (click on their links in the sidebar list) to see more about their creations and what they used!
You can use ANY Hambo image for your project. Here are examples from our rubber line:
Everyone that followed last week's challenge, linked a card to the blog post WITH THE OFFICIAL NAME and emailed us a photo of their card (hambodesignteam@gmail.com) by the deadline received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! We try to get all the images sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM.

Be sure to properly credit the digi image ("GOAT" digi image by Hambo Stamps) in your blog posts or gallery descriptions!  You don't have to use Goat, but we do require HAMBO IMAGES only.

Happy Stamping!
beginning May 1st! 

And finally:
It’s a Hambo Blog Hop! And you can join us!

Our jammin’ theme is “Channel Surfing.” Using any Hambo image, either rubber or digital, create a project that represents and depicts a TV SHOW title! Maybe it’s your favorite program, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like! Whatever it is, we want to see your TV Show creations!

The hop is scheduled for Friday, May 18, and is set to go live at 7:00 AM CST.  All blog hop posts must stay at the top of the page for that whole day.  A prize will be awarded to the customer whose TV-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  The winner will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo blog on Wednesday, May 23.

If you are interested in participating, please email Judy at hambodesignteam@gmail.com by 11:00 PM CST on Wednesday, May 9. Sample blog copy for the hop will be available after you sign up, if you desire to use it.

Come channel surf with us!

This is such a fun image! to bad I can't use another sentiment, Not everybody here in Holland speaks, read or understands English.. And the sentiment is in English.. Maybe it's an idea for the next challenge that we can alter the sentiments? Same text, only translated to our own language? I'm still making the card. Its to fun not to.. This is not a comment, more like a tip/question to make it more fun for foreingers, to enter the challenges :)

Hi Kim! The rule for our challenge is that you can use ANY Hambo image you'd like, even one of our free ones, so you can still play along. Just use a Hambo image -- either alone, with one of our provided sentiments, or with a sentiment that you create. We DO hope you'll come dance along with us! :)

Thank you for selecting my card for the Queen of the Hambo!!! I'm so excited! I loved the birthday candle images and it was so easy to create that party atmosphere. Thank you again. As soon as I return from the dentist I'll add the badge to my blog! And I love this week's image too! What a cute goat! Now to think of what I can recycle. Hmmm....

kim said...

Oh my.. What a misunderstanding on my side *shame*

I read it like it says.. Use the goat AND one of the sentiments.. So if I use the goat on my card, I have to use one of those sentiments too.. I asked my best friend if I read it wrong, but she thought the same thing as me.. I got the goat yesterday from you, so im indeed planning to use him :)

I'm so sorry for the misunderstanding. I know you guys know I meant it well . And of course im still gonna dance along :D Your images are just to much fun not to :)
thank you for the quick reply

lots of hugs !

Pat said...

Wow, I won a free digi image! Thank you random generator!! LOL it was difficult to choose just one, especially since payday is a week away, but I plan to use my choice, Wee Henry Fishing, in the near future! Thanks again!! Now onto this week's challenge and that too cute goat!

Jan Hunnicutt said...

No worries Kim -- we learn as we go, and this is just another instance where rules "evolve"! LOL

I used the "Goat" image (so cute) on my first "Wiper" card. I hope you like it. Thanks for the challenge and the DT's did as always a wonderful job.
