The Battle of the Bands with Hambo Stamps

Welcome to "The Battle of the Bands" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Band groups! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Kendra's beautiful 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, May 29, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, May 26 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

The band I chose is a trio of girls. Can you figure it out?

It's the Dixie Chicks! And they are standing in "Wide Open Spaces" (see video!).

I used Chick (0624) and What's Up Chick? (2704) for my images. I stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and colored in with Copic markers. My layout is Deconstructed Sketch 102.

Here is a little music to get your toes tappin':
