Candy is Dandy

It's Hoedown Time! Grab your dancing shoes or your snow boots and join in the challenge! If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the sidebar to see how this all works. Play along each week with a Hambo Stamps image (rubber or digital) and you are in the loop for some awesome FREE images! Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies and JOIN US!

As we begin our second year of challenges, we want to say thank you to everyone who has participated along the way and made the past year so fun and successful! We appreciate you! Today we want to especially say thank you to one particular Hoedown Dancer who participated in EVERY challenge last year, and used EVERY digital image that we offered! We believe she is the only one who accomplished said feat and we are ticked pink to welcome her as a Guest Designer to the Hoedown today!

Please give a hog wild round of oinks to ALLISON GRAVES! You can check out her blog here, and keep reading to see her creation for the Hoedown this week! Congratulations on your accomplishment, Allison! We are tickled pink to have you with us each week!

This week's challenge is brought to you by CANDY HEART. I love me some chocolate and I think pigs do too - that's why they are in the mud all the time! 
This image is not available FREE unless you played in last week's challenge.
Buy it HERE!
The challenge for this week is BRADS, BUTTONS OR BOWS. You can use one or all of them! We think it's a SWEET challenge!  Our cards from the Bacon Bits are surely going to inspire you:
Guest Designer ALLISON
They will have some wonderful close-ups on their blogs too, so be sure to have a visit there as well~! 

Everyone that followed last week's BIRTHDAY challengelinked to the Hoedown blog post and emailed us a photo of their card by the DEADLINE (email your image to hambodesignteam@gmail.com) received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! Images are sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM.

Remember that you don't have to use Candy Heart. BUT we do require HAMBO images only --- and you can use ANY of those for our challenge this week! We have a wonderful line of rubber images, as well as digis and we like seeing those too!
