Let's Channel Surf!

Welcome to the "Channel Surfing" Blog Hop 
sponsored by Hambo Stamps! 


Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict TV show titles! It might be our favorite show, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Melissa's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at Talk to the Ham to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

A prize will be awarded to one customer participant whose TV-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, May 23.


My card is made using American GothPigs - 4101.
Love this stamp! I inked it up with VersaFine Onyx Black, then embossed with Black Detail Embossing Powder. I colored it with Copic Markers. The sentiment sticker is by Heidi Grace. I added bling with Crystal Stickles to Mrs. Douglas' pendant and collar. She has to wear jewels, you know.

I am sure you can figure out my TV show - definitely not my favorite by a long shot! I am more of a CSI kind of gal. Arnold was my favorite character on Green Acres, so American Goth Pigs are especially appropriate.


If you watch long enough Oliver will move his pitchfork:


And for those of you that just LOVE the song (haha!) go ahead and have a listen (it will be stuck in your head ALL day -- you're welcome!). Click here.

Thank you for joining us today as we shared our TV show creations! Don't forget to leave love along the way so you are eligible for the prize~!

I'll admit I DID like that show (though I was VERY young when it aired! LOL), and I LOVE your card "hamage" to it! I know that "plain and simple" is not your style, but it looks great here! Thanks for organizing another fun, fun hop for us!!

I love that show and your creative tie in with that adorable stamp! The distressing is perfect!

I wasn't in love with the show, too. It was a spin-off from the show Petticoat Junction, and also used the character Sam Drucker and his general store. Now that's a show I loved! p.s. (I don't need the reminder for the song, it is burned into my brain without the clip, hahaha).
Loved the Hop, love your card!!
