That's a Tall Order!

We are surprising Judy with a birthday blog hop this weekend, starting HERE. You can leave a birthday message for Judy in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please help us make Judy's birthday really special! :) (Oh, and prizes will be given to random hoppers who leave comments at each blog stop along the way, including a $15 Hambo shopping spree for one person who leaves a message at each blog, including a personal message to Judy here.)

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!

First of all we want to say "thank you" to all of our Hoedown dancers! It is so fun to see your creativity each week with Hambo images and with our challenges! We loved all of the different ways you used pockets on your creations!
