Just Keep Swimming!

It's time for this week's Hambo Hoedown and it's a special one! We are showing off our new Bacon Bits and their designs today. This is one of the few times where they all are dancing at the Hoedown together and we are excited to share their talents with you!

But first, let's talk CHALLENGE! Our challenge this week is brought to you by SNORKEL BOY:
This image is not FREE unless you played in last week's challenge. Buy it HERE!
Challenge: It's a sparkling sea adventure for SNORKEL BOY! Glitter, Stickles, atyou Spica pens, glittery embossing powders, etc.  It's all about the SPARKLE as we dive into the depths of the sea.

BONUS OINKS for those that use one of the Father's Day sentiments and still have a masculine card with sparkle!

We formally introduced our NEW DESIGN TEAM (aka Bacon Bits) all last week at Talk to the Ham, and today you get to have a peek at their amazing art! All of their blogs are listed in the left sidebar, as well as linked to their names under their creations for this week. Be sure to visit them and show them some Hoedown love! Take a look at the FABULOUS work they did with Snorkel Boy:
I know these designs will inspire you to create something wonderful and sparkly this week!

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 challenge, you can use other Hambo images with the challenge too!
