Get ready for some CUTENESS!! I am tickled and excited to introduce the newest member of the Hambo family, BAILEY! Bailey joined the Hunters at Christmas.
 Do you not just love that face? Or  how about this one:
I am in love! And you will LOVE our image for this week -- it's the debut of Bailey's line! Take a look:
This image is not available FREE unless you played in last week's challenge.

Our challenge this week is a special one, as we are sponsoring Send A Smile 4 Kids this week! Their news about it will be posted on the Send A Smile 4 Kids blog THIS SATURDAY, January 21. You will see our Bacon Bits Digi Team samples then, along with some from the SAS4K team.  
Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals.

For our challenge this week, we would love for you to make a kids' card with BAILEY, and then SEND IT to Send A Smile 4 Kids. How could Bailey not cheer up a child? The guidelines for donated cards are posted here. Please read those if you plan to send your card. We know that not everyone will choose to participate in the mailing, but we hope that many of you will! Any cards appropriate for children are welcome including any holiday (not religious specific please) and happy everyday cards.

Our Rubber Team Bacon Bits are showing their digital image talents today, as well as two of the DT members from Send A Smile 4 Kids (remember that our Digi Team's creations will be posted Saturday HERE (click)). First up are Karen's creations. Karen is the Team Leader and Challenge Coordinator at SAS4K.

Next is SAS4K DT member Hilde's card:
