Big Happenings!

There are some big things going on in Hamboland that I want to share with you, but first, I want to wish a very happy birthday to Jacki Jones!! Actually, Jacki's birthday celebration can be included in the Hamboland fun, because she has been one of our most loyal friends/customer/supporters through the years that we've been in business.

If you know anything about Jacki, you know she loves the color purple, so a card in her honor MUST include it! This particular card also features the Party Chicks -- one of my all-time favorite images -- along with the new "Good Party" Fractured Funny that ends like this:

I'm hoping this card made it to her in time, so that this blog post doesn't spoil the surprise. But then again, maybe the card has money inside, in which case it will be a big surprise to BOTH of us!! LOL  Happy Birthday Jacki!!

While we're waiting for her to share the cake (we might be waiting a while...), let's continue. The new Hoedown challenge has been posted, with this week's featured image ... House 2:

In keeping with a "house" theme, the challenge this week is to use a household item somewhere on your card. As for me, I'm trying to figure out how to attach the dust bunnies, so once I've got 'em nailed down, I'll share. In the meantime, hop on over to the Hoedown blog and see what our clever designers have come up with, including challenge guest designer Dawn Majerus' paper clip fence! SO clever!

Tomorrow we have another special guest designer working with our rubber stamps, so we hope you'll stop by to see who she is, and what's she's made. I've seen it, and trust me -- it's awesome! :)

Friday is our "Sing Your Art Out" Customer Blog Hop, starting right here on the Talk to the Ham blog. All of the cards in the hop will be inspired by a song title, and I'm expecting songs from lots of genres, so there should be something for everyone. AND there will be prizes handed out for some lucky hoppers, so that's just icing on the cake!

Speaking of cake, how's when's it coming Jacki?

Finally, I want to remind you that we have a Design Team Call going on NOW! All the details are on the previous blog post, as well as HERE. We'd love to add you to the "Bacon Bit" team -- even if you're a vegetarian! :)

Have a great day everyone!
