Hambo's Sing Your Art Out Blog Hop!!

Hello and welcome to Hambo Stamps' SING YOUR ART OUT blog hop!!! This time around the Bacon Bits and friends of Hambo Stamps are hopping with creations inspired by SONGS!! What fun!! You should have arrived here by way of Karen's blog. If not, go back to the beginning and start with Hambo's blog, Talk to the Ham!! You don't want to miss a note!

Now let's get down to business, here is my card:


Any idea what song?? I'm actually quite sure you'll never guess it, LOL! I was inspired by my fave singer, Pink!! This is her song "Perfect". Because really, if you're a Ballerina Hippo and you're confident enough to be dancing around in a leotard & tutu, you TOTALLY get what Pink is singing about! :-) (Disclaimer: I cannot watch this video without getting a little teary...)




I chose the "Rock My World" sentiment mostly because Pink rocks my world. I adore her. LOL! I also had to bling up the ballerina's tutu a bit. Just cuz.


The color scheme was inspired by my beloved Play Date Cafe challenge. *sniff* I can't believe the challenge went on without me this week! (Ok, yes I can, but it still is hard to see the sidebar over there without my mugshot anymore. Waaaaah!) But aren't these colors fabby??


Ok, now it's time to get hoppin'!! Dance on over to Carla's blog and check out what she's singing. And be sure to visit ALL the blogs and leave lots of love, because rumor has it there will be a prize for one lucky hopper who leaves comments on all the blogs!

Thanks for stopping by today!
