"Go Ahead and Laugh at Us" Slop Hop!!!

Welcome to the "Go Ahead, Laugh at Us!" Hambo Stamps Slop Hop!


The Bacon Bits are here to help you start your month off right with a little April Fool's laughter and fun.


If you arrived here from Dawn '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! 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 hop spot will be in hog heaven and win a $15 gift certificate to Hambo StampsAnd I am giving away Bailey Hug Digi as well! Just tell me an experience you had in the past with a pig for a chance to win this sweet image, ok maybe it is a hard one, if you don't have a pig experience any good one with an animal would work as well. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entries is Tuesday, April 3 at midnight CST. My card today is made with Elephant 2513 and Gray Wrinkled Thing 1508 .




Next up on the hop is Jenn . You will love what she has to show you today!, and here is the list of our great team, so you can leave them some love as well:




And so you can laugh at us a little bit more here is a PIG joke:


What do you get when you cross a dinosaur with a pig???... JURASSIC PORK!!!.

Cardstock: Whisper white and Really Rust from SU
Designer paper: Darling Dear from My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Elephant and Gray Wrinkled Thing both from Hambo Stamps
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

When I took my Goddaughter to see the animals at a little petting place, I was so enchanted with watching her feed the animals that I was not paying attention. Needless to say, a pig ran by my and totally knocked me on my pig butt! It gave everyone a good laugh but me! Love your card and sentiment!

Carolina I love to look at your cards in challenges-so many inspirations! LOVE the piercing on this and the way you moved the elephant around the card! Once, we rented a house in the country from a pig farmer..just after I had had our first child, I saw this HUGE sow roaming around our front yard getting into my flowers. I took off after this 350-400 lb pig with a broom in my hand-beating it on the ground. Luckily, she decided to pay her respects down the road and not stay for a visit! Don't know what I would've done if she'd turned towards me! That's MY pig story for ya!

As a child, I helped castrate pigs and threw the remains aside and the dog ate them. I used to use that story as a reminder to young men who tried to abuse my heart.

Pat said...

love the elephant! Experience - I have never had one with a pig, however, I did rescue a MUSKRAT the other day. He was pinned between a fence and I save him and sent him off to Wildlife rescue who released him into the right environment!

I saw your card when I was on CreatewithTLC bloghop and just aww-ed (jaw dropping cute!!) How you came up with the idea of deviding your card in 3.. awesome! need to try that sometime.

Oh, I had an embarrassing moment with pigs ones.. i'm 23 now.. and when it happend i was.. 7? or 8 or something like that.
Me and my familie went to a childrensfarm. Thats like a zoo, but smaller and it has farm animals only.. including pigs.
I was hugging horses and bunnies and all cute animals. When we went to the pigs I wanted to hug them to. They were sitting in mud. before my mom could warn me, i went to the pigs, tryed to pet them and fell in the mud!! everybody laughed.. kinda emberrassing :P

Just want to say one more time that i think your card is to cute :D and thank you for asking about a "piggy moment" havent tought about this in years

Hugs Kim
