"Searching" for Just the Right Word!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown! 

You have found yourself at the Hoedown, Hambo Stamps' 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 use a HAMBO IMAGE and earn one of our two weekly awards (see sidebar for details)!

The Hoedown Challenge is open to ALL images, from any company, digital or rubber. Our prize winners, however, will be chosen from those using Hambo images. So ANYONE is welcome to play with ANY image for fun. Come join us!

You can read the Challenge Rules HERE.

Using Word Search and one of the sentiments, choose one letter of the alphabet, then use 2 or 3 things that start with that letter. For example "B": brad, button, black: "T": twine, turtle, twisted easel card.
Our new digital release this week is WORD SEARCH. If you played along with a Hambo image last week, you should have found this in your inbox today! If not, you can purchase it here!

To inspire you and get your mojo going, take a look at the creations by Team Oink:

For this week's challenge you don't have to use Word Search. We have a wonderful line of rubber and clear images as well as digis and we like seeing those too! 
Remember, to play along for fun, you can use ANY company's image! But when you use a Hambo image for this week's challenge, you will be sent a FREE image to use in next week's challenge, plus will be eligible for our weekly prizes.

Please visit the Bacon Bits' blogs (listed in the sidebar) today for their alphabet choices and challenge details and leave them some Hoedown love!

Everyone that:
1. Followed last week's challenge using a Hambo image
2. Linked to the Hoedown blog post and used the OFFICIAL digi name in your description
3. Emailed us a photo of their card by the DEADLINE 
...received this week's image FREE - so check your mailboxes!  

On Friday, May 24, we will be having a customer inclusive blog hop. Our theme is "THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS" where we will be showcasing Hambo clear, rubber and digi images.  Using any Hambo image, create a project that represents and depicts the name of a (professional) band! Maybe it’s your favorite group, or maybe it’s one that you don’t even like! Whatever it is, we want to see your BAND NAME creations! You do not need to have the Band name on your card or project, but please put it in your post.

TO SIGN UP, please send an email to hambodesignteam@gmail.com with "BLOG HOP" in the title BY MAY 15. Once we receive that, you will receive all the low-down on how to participate!
Please do not sign up if you can't follow through with it.
It takes a lot of time to organize a hop, and those that hop with us don't want any broken links! We had a lot of fun with our last customer hop, and hope you will join us! 
Oh -- and did I mention prizes?
