Go Ahead, Laugh At Us! blog hop

Hi there!! Welcome to the "Go Ahead, Laught At Us!" Hambo Stamps blog hop!! If you know Hambo Stamps, you know they like funny - so it's only fitting they choose April Fools Day for the Bacon Bits to gather together for our very first blog hop!! If you've been hopping along, you should have found me by way of my friend Joy's blog. Otherwise, make sure at head back to the Hambo blog, Talk to the Ham, so you don't miss out on any of the fun!

A little surprise is hiding on one of the blogs today, so be sure to leave some comment love as you “hoof it” around the hop. One lucky commenter on the mystery hop spot will be in hog heaven and win a $15 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!

And now onto my card - we're here to make you LAUGH OUT LOUD during this hop, so I chose one of my very favorite Hambo Fractured Funnies. Which, let me tell you, was no easy task since I love them all!!


Awwww. Isn't that sweet? And now the inside of the card... wait for it...


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Yup. Totally awesome. This Fractured Funny is called Favorite Child and it makes me giggle big time. I paired it with their adorable Flower Pot Girl, which I've always claimed is actually ME - even though there's absolutely no truth to that statement. But I see the resemblance... even if nobody else does... hee hee! Oh and that fabby ribbon that I used - it's also available on the Hambo site. Yup, Hambo sells ribbon too!! Lots of yummy, wonderful May Arts ribbon. The one I used is 3/8" Sheer Pinstripe in Dark Red. Love it so much!

And now some GOOD NEWS - I am giving away this Favorite Child set to one lucky commenter right here on my blog!! They are red rubber, mounted on cling cushion. You will love it. :-) So leave me some comment love!! And guess what - hop through to all the blogs because not only do you get a chance for the $15 Hambo prize, you can also win something fabby on each and every blog!! And we're a small team so just do it - it won't take you very long. :-)

The wonderful and talented Judy is your next stop on the piggie tour, so oink on over to her blog.
But before you do, I just have to show you some piggie cuteness... :-)

I sorta want a piglet now. Just sayin'.

We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, April 5.

  43. Ah Libby, this made me cry and made me sad at the same time. My sister and I always teased mum about who her favorite was. When I called her I would say "Hi Mum, it's your favourite daughter" and she would say "Hi Jean" Bwhahaha... I miss her giggles.
