Go Ahead, Laugh At Us!

Welcome to the  
“Go Ahead, Laugh at Us!” Hambo Stamps Slop Hop!  

The Bacon Bits are here to help you start your month off right with a little April Fools laughter and fun.

If you arrived here from {Beverly}’s blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you will want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog – TALK TO THE HAM. We don’t want you to miss anything!

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 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!

And I am giving away something as well: a super cute digi {Mom With Stroller} that is perfect for Mother's Day, new baby, or just to say hi!
How do you win? Leave a comment on this post by Tuesday, April 3, at midnight CST!
TWO entries for those with a Cricut that tell me what you favorite cartridge is (I am a new Mini Cricut owner, and need advice!)! We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, April 3 at midnight CST.

So on to my card! My card today is made with two rubber images from Hambo Stamps: Lawn Mower - 0711 and Mower Love - 0710. I love the little play on words with the sentiment. I stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then embossed my lawn mower with Clear EP before coloring with Copics.
Don't you have a zillion of those little Prima flowers? They were the first Primas I ever owned, and I decided I wanted to start using them up!

You might have noticed the Bacon Bits are sharing pig jokes and/or pig facts. 
I have a pig fact I thought was interesting:
Q: How loud can a pig scream?
A:  The scream of a jet engine taking off measures 113 decibels. 
The scream of a frightened pig can measure 115 decibels.
WOW~!
You have officially finished the hop! We will post all blog winners at Talk to the Ham on THURSDAY, April 5!

THANK YOU for joining our Slop Hop today! 
Take a look at this fun stuff too:

I love the sentiment on the card! It is just perfect and will have to try that technique before coloring-getting great ideas today! My fav cricut cartridge would be Storybook? I LOVE flourishes and such and it has a lot of them. Thanks for the laughter ladies!! Please come and join us at http://yourscrapbookplace.blogspot.com/ with our small blog hop also!

Oh, Judy, my side hurts from hopping today with Hambo!! I love that mower, and those clouds are too cute! I love my Cricut and have several carts, but I think my fave would have to be Hello Kitty Greetings. You don't have to be a HK lover to enjoy the many differently shaped cards you can cut with it. My newest fave letter cart is Cursive-amazing alphas!!
Thanks for not hogging all the jokes!!

My fave cricut cartridge is cutting up. I love to use it as lettering for posters, but for scrapbooking, I like to use animal kingdom since it has a wide variety of animals with lots of possibilities.

Deborah Anton said...

Such a great scene you have created!! It is so awesome to see a lot of these images done up! It is always different to see them colored in and such! And who knew a pig was THAT loud!! Wow!

Nancy said...

Too cute! I love all the layers in your scene. Favortite cricut cartridge....hhmmm....that depends. Font cart = Storybook and shapes cart - paperdoll dress-up. Now my favorite tool is my Gypsy. I can't cricut without it anymore!

Angelicnwa said...

love the saying! I am going to have to use that one! My favorite cricut cartridge is ALPHALICIOUS for titles and my favorite fun cartridge would be ART PHILOSOPHY.

cass said...

Fun card and sentiment. Amazing fact about a pigs squeal.l I dont own a cricut, I have an Ecraft and my favourite files would be floweras, can do so much with different petals.

Sue in CT said...

I love your card. I am drawn to them clouds...love them. Very cute saying. I also never knew that about a pig.

I have 2 cricuts and my favorite cart. for accents is "Reminisce Accents" which is a cricut cartridge but sold by Creative Memories. However...my favorite one for lettering is still "George and Basic Shapes". The letters are easy to read. This don't mean I don't use others or fancy letters or accents but these are my favorite.

awwh look at those cute little flowers. I dont own a lot of paper flowers. Not even small ones like that. But now I had a look at your card i think its time for me to get me some paper flowers lol.

I looked at some Hambo stamps a while ago and saw the stamps you used on this card. Never imagined to make a card like you did! the flower DP on the bottom of your card really makes it a fun card to look at it. Great job!

Sadly I dont own a cricut (YET, boyfriend is buying me one for my birthday.. and thats in June, woehoe! I'm getting a cricut! lalala *happy dance*), so i cant help you.
When you know what cardridge to buy, let us know! Im very curious.

I wish you a very happy day, lots of happy crafting and give you a big thank you for the inspiration!
