Hambo's Time Machine - The 80's BLOG HOP

Welcome to "Hambo's Time Machine" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict something cool from the 1980's! It might be our favorite book, something in the news then, a fashion fad, a song, or something that really stuck out to us in looking back. 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 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, September 25, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 22 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

My creation is one movie that still makes me laugh and is such a reminder of the 80's. SIXTEEN CANDLES! (Automobiiiiilllllleeeeee?!...)

Using Hambo's digi of Candles, I created this card for a birthday and to represent this movie of Sixteen Candles.  (Hopefully!) I colored it in with Copics and used some Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper.  I added some ric rack ribbon and a Prima to finish it off with the start of the sentiment and ends with, " wish you a Happy Birthday!" I wanted to add some stitching on the corners, but my sewing machine is rather old and if you don't move the knobs just right for the correct stitching, well, you get this little mess it created! :/ Oh well... it adds a bit of character! :)

Now swing on over to Deanne's blog for another great trip back to the 80's that will jog your memory -- or show you something you missed! Thanks for hopping by!

  2. Hello Deborah,
    I do not remember that movie at all, but your card sure is pretty
    and looks so happy because of all of the colors.

  3. I loved this movie - and Jake was such a hottie! This is actually still one of Tim's favorite movies, and he quotes it often. His favorite line whenever one of the kids asks him how to spell something... "You don't SPELL it, you EAT it!!" (<-- which was said about quiche in the movie.) Super fun card and great memory!

  4. Oh yes...I just rewatched a part of this show the other day!! haha...good idea for the hop!

  5. As soon as I saw your card I knew the movie. What a fun card. Perfect for the 80's theme.

  6. Aww, I loved that movie! Fun card!

  7. Awesome movie - boy was Jake a cutie or what!! Love your card and great idea!!

  8. Hi Deborah! Fabulous card and a great '80s memory! Love that digi and how you colored the candles to go with the fabby pop art background paper! My sisters and I are going to the beach tomorrow; we'll be watching lots of old movies and I think I'll look for that one!!

  9. Best movie of it's time and you have a fantastic card!!!

  10. Very pretty colors you used on that card. I remember 16 candles, great 80's theme :)

  11. To quote Long Duck Dong.... "What's happinin' hotstuff?" That is a terrific movie. In fact I just saw a commercial that it is on this weekend on ABC Family. As for your card, it is as terrific. So creative using the candle image for "16 Candles".

  12. as I am from England, I dont think I have heard of this, but reading previous comments on this card it must be a great movie... must remember to order it. great colorful and fun card Deborah, and the flower addition is adorable. :)

  13. It wouldn't be an 80s hop, with a film or two from John Hughes. This is so creative!

  14. Ack! I have never seen this movie! I surely do love those candles and your colorful design!!
