Battle of the Bands - Hambo Stamps Blog Hop

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 Kecia's 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 Battle of the Bands' 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!

My creation is one I just knew I would use the moment I heard about this hop! :) It was one of my favorite bands in the 80's (Yes, I am dating myself...) and I still enjoy listening to their music.  Can you guess which band I am talking about?



Yep! THE CURE!! Here is a video of one of their popular songs and one I am sure you all have heard before. 



For my card, I used the Hambo Digi image of Dr. Needle which is colored in with Copics.  I cut him out to be popped up on Flourishes Bookplate die.  I used Pink Paislee dp of Indigo Blue which you can find at the Hambo store.  I added some burlap ribbon for a more rustic feel and left the card with no sentiment to be added later. 

Now jam on over to Deanne's blog for another great Band group that will have you tappin' you foot!  Here is the list of all the blog hoppers for you start at the beginning if you haven't done so already, so that you will be eligible for the hopper prize!
 
Thanks for jamming with me!!
