"Name That Toon" with Hambo Stamps~!

Welcome to "Name That Toon!" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! 

Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you a dozen fun creations that depict comic strips! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Paula's lovely 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 comic strip-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 of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, January 23, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, January 20 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

My card is made with Caveman - HCL032 clear stamp set (Clear stamps are new at Hambo!). You can also get them in rubber: Caveman - 4221 and My World Evolves - 4214. I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored in using Copic markers. 

Can you guess my comic strip? It is my all-time favorite: B.C. by Johnny Hart

What a brilliant and funny man he was. I loved how he could poke fun at every subject imaginable, but many times had a poignant message for his readers as well. Some of the ones that made me giggle the most were the definitions. Here is one of my favorites:


Hart passed away in 2007, but his family carries on the B.C. legacy and the comic still appears in newspapers all over the world.
