He Flies Through The Air With The Greatest of EASE...L

Wow. Yeah. I should stick with just making cards instead of trying for great titles.  That was pretty bad, I will agree! HA! But it should give you a clue for our challenge today!

YEP! We are making EASEL CARDS! For the artist in all of us - a sweet card to display your artistic endeavors. If you have never made an easel card before, you are going to love them.  They are very EASE-y  to do, especially if you have great instructions. Read on for who, what, when and where!

Thank you to EVERYONE that participated in our April Fools' Blog Hop last Friday. We had a lot of fun and we hope you did too. Winners are posted at Talk to the Ham! Mark your calendars for MAY 20, when we are having a customer blog hop that you can participate in too!  FUN STUFF!
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email.  Buy it here!
Today's challenge is brought to you by Penguin Bunny! It's Easter Time! Penguin Bunny is all decked out ready to deliver his pretty egg to someone special! Challenge: Using Penguin Bunny, make an EASEL card.

Click HERE for some FABULOUS written instructions (which also includes the video), and click HERE for an amazing video, both by Beate Johns of Splitcoaststampers, and you will make your card with the greatest of ease! There are many other wonderful instructions and videos on the internet as well, and google will help you find those!

Take a look at what the Bacon Bits have to share with you to inspire you to great heights!

And please welcome this week's Guest Designer, PeggySue!
Here is one of my favorite cards that PeggySue has made for past Hoedowns:
You can see all her Hambo Stamps designs HERE.
Thank you for joining us this week, PeggySue!

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!

Check out what Hannah made using Silly Birds With Hats. Aren't they neat with all the different colors?

And here is Karin's using Cool Pig - 1909 and Sty-lish - 1922. One of my favorite color combos!
Judy (that's me!) used Farm Chicken 
and What's Up Chick? - 2704

Thank you for this challenge: I've learnt how to make an easel card and it's very easy! The penguin-bunny is lovely!

I apologize- I'm just not going to get my easel card done. This week has been CRAZY and it's just gotten away from me! I have my image colored and still plan on completing the challenge, but it just won't count. I'll definitely be in the hoedown again next week!
