Just Catching Up!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown!
If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the left sidebar to see how this all works. 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 just catching up today, and there are several things to talk about before we get to the challenge and our winners.

1. We have a Design Team Call going on NOW! Click HERE for details about how you can become a Bacon Bit!
2. 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 Friday, May 11. Sample blog copy for the hop will be available after you sign up, if you desire to use it.
Come channel surf with us!

Now that we are caught up on those things, let's catch some butterflies! This week's challenge is brought to you by CATCHING BUTTERFLIES.  And what better to go with butterflies than FLOWERS! So let's see some flowers on your creations this week.
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email.  Buy it here!
How cute is that?! 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. 

Now let's see what fun stuff the Bacon Bits have for you today!
