"I Wouldn't Forget" to Play in the Hoedown This Week!

Welcome Hoedown Dancers! Thank you to everyone who played in last week's St. Pat Hamster and Gold Challenge! Be sure to wear green tomorrow so you don't get pinched! 

Our Queen of the Hoedown (chosen at random) for last week is  27. Cheryl B! Congratulations! You can snag the winner's button for your blog and be sure to email Monica at info@hambostamps.com with your choice of any digi image from the store here.

Speaking of sweet Monica (owner of Hambo) and her fabulous hubby Timbo (Hambo illustrator extraordinaire).......they are taking their wonderful family on a fun spring break trip this next week and Hambo Stamps will be closed March 18-27. So----- if you want to buy anything soon (like this week's cute digi image), you will need to do that by tomorrow, March 17th! They will be back in the store on Monday, March 28, and will take care of orders received while they were gone then.  

Now -- on to the challenge for this week! I am going to show you the inspiration from the Bacon Bits first, give you a few hints, and then see if you can guess what the challenge is from their designs! Take a look:

A little  bling from those delightful red gems:

Some yummy designer paper:

A fun party hat!
 Blingy flowers and hat:

Any ideas yet? I bet you figured out that it's with 
Isn't he cute?
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email. Buy it here!
And what else? Well, it's all about the SPARKLE as we Celebrate (any celebration) with Party Elephant! Glitter, Stickles, atyou Spica pens, glittery embossing powders, designer paper, bling, etc. - we want to see your sparkly delights!

Again, if you didn't play last week, use ANY Hambo image, make a celebratory card, and show your sparkle! Here to show you how is Karin using  Worm Balloon - 2510:
Everyone that followed the challenge, linked a card to the blog post and emailed us a photo of their card would receive this week's challenge image FREE!  So check your mailboxes! If you didn't get your card linked in time or forgot to email us (the deadline is always 10 PM CST Tuesday night before the new challenge), you can still play along.  Use ANY Hambo image on your project - just make sure you follow the theme! Link up, email us, and you will be back in the loop for the next free image!

Please link your SPARKLY Challenge projects using the inlinkz button below.  If you are uploading to an online gallery, use HamboHoedown7 as your keyword. That way we can find your creations! After you have linked here, please email a picture of it to hambodesignteam@gmail.com so that we can get the image for Week 8 to you! 

****Projects must be uploaded AND pictures emailed by Tuesday, March 22, at 10:00 PM CST to be eligible for Week 8's free digi image.****

And remember, for the next two weeks a weekly Guest Designer will be chosen for the Hoedown! The first two have already been chosen! (Shh....can't say who yet! It's a secret!). Each of the first four weeks in March we will be choosing one participant to be a Guest Designer for one week of our April Hoedown Challenges! Hoedown Guest Designers would receive their image early and have their card showcased at the Hoedown, along with the Bacon Bits' cards! So put your thinking caps on, and show us your stuff! Guest Designers will be notified via email at the end of March.
Mark your calendars for our April 1st Blog Hop!
What are you waiting for? 
Get your dancin' shoes on and HOEDOWN with us!

I look forward to doing one of your challenges. (I'm a newbie) I created a button for your blog so I could put it on my website to remind myself (and anyone else) to come by for your challenges. You may want to create one so other people can do the same :-) Free advertising!
