Happy Birthday Mr. Hambo!

Today the Hambo Stamps' Bacon Bits are celebrating a new challenge at the Hoedown with birthday wishes for Tim Hunter [aka Mr. Hambo]! Tim's birthday is tomorrow, and we wanted to start his special day a little early.

Be sure to check out the fun challenge and brand new digi release at the Hoedown! There are a few challenge options this week, so choose your fancy! I decided to go with the "Checkerboard" option:
I used Possum - 4211 and Be As Special - 4210 for my images. I stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink, and then colored in using Copic markers. My designer paper is from the Loyal Collection by Authentique.

Head over to the Hoedown and wish Tim a happy day, and then check out what the rest of the team made!
Stamps: Possum 4211 and Be As Special 4210 (Hambo Stamps)
Paper: GP White, Mellow Moss, Authentique Loyal DP
Ink: Copic markers, Clear Spica Glitter pen (on trees) and VersaFine Onyx Black
Accents and Tools: Spellbinders dies, Lil' Inkers Cloud dies
