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 the talented Lyn'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 time machine 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!)
Though I was only 10, one of my earliest memories of the 80s was when the USA Olympic Hockey Team beat the Soviet Union. It was quite the upset, fondly referred to as "Miracle on Ice". Take a look:
For my card, I decided to depict this epic sporting event. If I remember correctly Jim Craig, the goalie, was quite cute back in the day, LOL. Anyway, I printed the Hambo digital image of "Wee Henry Hockey" onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image of with Copic markers and cut with my detailed scissors.
Using a Cuttlebug alphabet die set, I cut the letters U S A from patterned paper from the Paper Studio. The star and the photo are printed from the internet. The larger card panel is from Jillibean Soup. It is framed with black and red cardstock. I pop-dotted the hockey player.
Next on this 80's train....the talented Deborah!
Here's the hop order. Go relive the 80s. I sure wish I could in real life, LOL.
