Broadway Bound Blog Hop for Hambo Stamps

Welcome to "Broadway Bound!" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict Broadway show titles! It might be our favourite, or just one that was fun to design.

If you arrived here from Paula'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 Broadway-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 Tuesday, September 25. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 23 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

Here's my card ... and a tribute to the Broadway Musical ...

"Old Man and the Sea"



I used the adorable digital stamp from Hambo, know simply as "boat".  I added some die-cut waves (one in-behind the boat and two in front), and then paper pieced the boat, sails and sailor, adding lots of color with my markers and sponges.  I know ... his hair should have been gray (since he's the Old Man part of the play) ... instead, I made him a bleached blonde.  :)  Hope you like.


Now dance on over to Judy's blog for another great Broadway show!
