A Toast to Tim -- Hambo Style~!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown, our fun weekly challenge where you can earn a free digi each week that you participate and meet all requirements. And in addition to the free digi, there are some bragging rights up for grabs if you earn one of our two weekly awards. (See the sidebar for details.) 

This week our challenge is brought to you by TOASTER!
And what a perfect time to offer a toast -- to Tim -- our amazing and zany Hambo illustrator, and husband of owner Monica! It's his birthday on Thursday, and the Bacon Bits are toasting (and maybe roasting!) him today~!
Our challenge has some options this week. Use "Toaster," or any other Hambo image, rubber or digital, and create a project that shows:
1) burned edges or soot technique OR
2) checkboard or gingham patterns
If you are new to our challenge, click on the link in the left sidebar to see how this all works. Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies! We would love to have you join us!

Our Bacon Bits are here to show you some great ideas (one of each!), PLUS to wish Tim a fantastic day!

LYN - Soot Technique
KECIA - Gingham
DEBORAH - Burned Edges
Remember that you don't have to use "Toaster" but we do require HAMBO images only! We have a wonderful line of rubber images as well as digis and we like seeing those too! 
JUDY - Checkerboard
Possum - 4211 and
Be As Special - 4210
