Happy Birthday Monica!

Yesterday was our fearless leader's birthday! The Bacon Bits celebrated too, and surprised Monica with a little birthday hop. We would love to have you join us! There are birthday presents too! Just comment on each of the six participating designers' blogs before Monday, August 19, at 10 PM CDT, and you could win the birthday prize! Here is the hop order and the direct links to the birthday posts:

Now on to this week's Hoedown challenge!

Welcome to the Hambo Hoedown! 

You have found yourself at the Hoedown, Hambo Stamps' 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 use a HAMBO IMAGE and earn one of our two weekly awards (see sidebar for details)!

Our challenge this week is brought to you by Carpenter! I love this set, as Monica's husband, and Hambo illustrator, Tim, is a carpenter (and a good one too!).
Our challenge this week is to create a project that uses something a carpenter would use!

If you played along with a Hambo image last week, you will find this in your inbox later this morning! If not, you can purchase it here!

The Hoedown Challenge is open to ALL images, from any company, digital or rubber. Our prize winners, however, will be chosen from those using Hambo images. So ANYONE is welcome to play with ANY image for fun. Come join us!

You can read the Challenge Rules HERE.

Here is what our awesome Team Oink came up with this week to inspire you: 


I love all of the creativity and that they all used different things and different sentiments! You will have to click on their names to see what items they used for the challenge to give you some ideas! Leave them some love!

For this week's challenge you don't have to use Carpenter. We have a wonderful line of rubber and clear images as well as other digis and we like seeing those too! Just make sure you are following the challenge!

Remember, to play along for fun, you can use ANY company's image! But when you use a Hambo image for this week's challenge, you will be sent a FREE image to use in next week's challenge, plus will be eligible for our weekly prizes.

Everyone that:
1. Followed last week's challenge using a Hambo image
2. Linked to the Hoedown blog post and used the OFFICIAL digi name in your description
3. Emailed us a photo of their card by the DEADLINE 
...received this week's image FREE - so check your mailboxes!  

Our BEST IN SHOW for last week's
