Green Eggs and.....Hambo!

Welcome to "Green Eggs and ......Hambo" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict book titles! It might be our favorite book, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Leslie's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose book-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, February 1.
My card today is based on the book I am currently reading: The Confession by John Grisham. It tells the story of two men: one in prison for a crime he didn't commit, and the other, a terminally ill man who actually did commit the crime and is trying to make restitution. But no one believes him.


I used Pig Inmate for my images. He looks a little shell-shocked from all the years in prison - he has been counting the days until someone will squeal the real story, and he will be free. He has to get out so he can head on over to Sandy's blog for another great book! Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible to win some Hambo prizes!

We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, January 31 at 5 PM CST. Our current team will be retiring that day, and we will be welcoming a new Design Team AND celebrating the Hambo Hoedown’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY on February 1st. Don't miss it!

I thought it was The Shawshank Redemption at first! I haven't read this one either, but it's going on my list. I used to devour John Grisham books, but haven't read any in a long time. Great interpretation of the book! :)

I love the colors of that card! Very unexpected, but shows how versatile a image that you'd otherwise associate with just b&w can be! Thanks for sharing!! - Heather B
