A New Year and LOTS of FUN and Exciting News!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown, our fun weekly challenge where you can earn a free digi each week that you participate and meet all requirements. And in addition to the free digi, there are some bragging rights up for grabs if you earn one of our two weekly awards (see sidebar for details)!

This week our challenge is brought to you by PHEASANT~!
This image is not free, unless you played in our Anything Goes challenge last week. BUY IT HERE!
Our challenge is to use "Pheasant," or any other Hambo image, rubber or digital, and create a project that shows off THREE of these bright party colors: Hot pink, aqua, lime green, sunny yellow and orange! Choose three (or all) of those colors to spiffy up Pheasant! It's a New Year bird and he is ready to party like a flock star!
If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the left sidebar to see how this all works. Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies! We would love to have you join us!

We have some awesome samples from the Bacon Bits to show you today for inspiration and fun!


Remember that you don't have to use Pheasant but we do require HAMBO images only! We have a wonderful line of rubber images as well as digis and we like seeing those too!

We are having a Design Team Call for our new term, which begins in February. We would LOVE to have you apply! Read all about it HERE.


Don't forget about the awesome SALE going on right HERE! We are making room for some AMAZING new stuff to be revealed soon!


New STAMPING SUPPLIES have been added to the Hambo Store! Be sure to check out the available inks, acrylic blocks, and accessories for all your stamping needs!

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

Our jammin’ theme is “Name That Toon.” Using any Hambo image, either rubber or digital, create a project that represents and depicts a comic strip! Maybe it’s your favorite one you read as a kid, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like! Whatever it is, we want to see your comic strip creations!

The hop is scheduled for Friday, January 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 comic strip-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, January 23.

If you are interested in participating, please email Judy at hambodesignteam@gmail.com by 11:00 PM CST on Wednesday, January 14.  The blog hop order will be emailed to you on January 16.

Sample blog copy for the hop will be available after you sign up, if you desire to use it.
Come "Name That Toon" with us!
