Let's Stick Together!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown!
If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the left 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! We would love to have you join us!

Thank you to all who played in our SKETCH challenge last week! Though everyone was using the same sketch, it was fun to see how each person interpreted it uniquely, with different sketch element shapes and sizes. We have two awards each week, and you can read about those in the sidebar!
Our first award is Best in Show. And our Best in Show this week goes to............  5. sf_crafter ! (Beverly)
Her coloring is superb, and the monster just jumps right off the card. The "Best in Show" button is yours to display proudly Beverly!

Our randomly chosen Queen of the Hoedown this week is......................................
8. Lyn T !! Congratulations Lyn! Grab 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.

Now on to this week's challenge!

Introducing Dr. Needle! Simply use this image (or any other Hambo image) along with Paper-Piercing on your card. Since the Dr. has that big needle, we want to see lots of HOLES used creatively this week.

This image is not FREE unless you played in last week's challenge. Buy it HERE!
Let's see how the Bacon Bits stuck it to us:
Deborah kept the colors soft and muted, like in a doctor's office!
Beverly made sure she got her point across!
And Jenn proves that she's a big shot too!
Fun stuff!! Everyone that followed last week's challenge, linked a card to the blog post WITH THE OFFICIAL NAME and emailed us a photo of their card (hambodesignteam@gmail.com) by the deadline received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! We try to get all the images sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM. 

Of course, since this is a HAMBO HOEDOWN challenge, you can use other Hambo images with the challenge too! Carolina edges her way in:
You can click on the Bacon Bits' links in the sidebar to see their creations close-up!

Thanks to all who went "Channel Surfing" with us on last weekend's blog hop! We've awarded two winners from the hop. Congratulations to randomly-chosen commenter Carol who won a $15 digi store shopping spree, and to Jan Hunnicutt, who won a $20 Hambo site-wide shopping spree for creating our favorite project for the hop. Winners, please email Monica to collect your prizes!

We will begin announcing the new Bacon Bits on the Talk to the Ham blog, one per day, beginning Sunday, May 27. Then join us right here on June 6, where their first official projects will debut during the Hoedown challenge.

Now let's get creative!
