Go Ahead and Laugh At Us! Hambo Stamps Slop Hop!

Welcome to our "Go Ahead And Laugh At Us" Slop Hop! Slop hop? What is that you ask? Well it is a Blog Hop but in "piggy" terms, it is a Slop Hop! The Bacon Bits are here to help start off your month with a little April Fools Laughter and fun. With that, here is a little joke to jump start your hop...

How do you take a sick pig to the hospital?
In a Hambulance!

I know that was a knee slapper, so one more to bring you over the edge...

Why did the pig go to the casino?
To play the slop machine!
Thank you, thank you! I'm here all week folks!

Ok...wipe those laughter tears and follow along... If you arrived here from Monica's blog, you are in the right place. If not, you will want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog – TALK TO THE HAM. We don’t want you to miss anything!

Here is the Slop Hop order:

Talk to the Ham (Monica)
Deborah --------------> You are here!

Get ready to laugh as you slop your way from pig pen to pig pen and seeing what all the other Bacon Bits have created! There is even some free digi's to be won by a random winner on each of the Bacon Bits blog!
A little surprise is hiding on one of the blogs today, so be sure to leave some comment love as you “hoof it” around the hop. One lucky commenter on the mystery slop spot will be in hog heaven and win a $15 gift certificate to Hambo Stamps!

I am giving away Cool Dog!

All you have to do is comment here and tell me where you would like to vacation this summer! I love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, April 3 at midnight CST. For those of you who commented a few days ago on Hop Arts Design Day, those will be counted! I accidentally added this giveaway then instead of today. Winners will be announced on the Hoedown Blog April 5th so be sure to check!

My card today is done using Silly Birds and Neighborhood Watch for the sentiments.

I couldn't help but put these silly birds together with this fractured funny! At least for me, it seemed fitting to have this card somewhat mimic my neighborhood friends in our last duty station! We were silly like that! I stamped the image and colored it in with Copics. I used American Crafts dp and some scrap SU! Turquoise cs. I could have embellished this card but the image is a good size that I didn't want to cover anymore of the dp as I felt the chicken wire look fit it well. I used some left over dp for an inside strip before stamping the sentiment with Momento Black ink.

Next up on the hop is Dawn. You will love what she has to show you today! Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek! Have a great April Fools!

  15. OMG....LOL! I think that is so funny. Yes, I can use a card like that as we all know someone like that, that you can joke with. This summer I would love to drive across country and vacation at Yellowstone Park. (This is on my bucket list and I have wanted to go for many, many years but still never got there.)Looking at the bright side, at least I don't need to think of a new place I want to vacation at....LOL.

  16. wow, it really does look like chicken wire. And the green feels like grass.. The card feels like being on the farm. Great job! I also like the simplicity. There is no need for lots of embellishments, to create a cute card :)

    Just wanted to say that I like your card, it's giving me inspiration to make a farm-like card :) Lets see what I come up with.

    Thank you for sharing and I'm wishing you a lovely tuesday (yeah, its tuesday here in Holland already)

    Lots o'Hugs
