Welcome to "Green Eggs and ......Hambo" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict book titles! It might be our favorite book, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Michele's blog at Whimsical Creations, you are in the right place! (Didn't you just love the sentiment on her card?!) 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!
With all of the great images (both digital and rubber) to choose from at Hambo Stamps, it wasn't hard to come up with a creative idea. In fact, the problem I had was deciding which idea to run with. I chose the caterpillar digi. Can you guess what book I chose? (Scroll down for the answer) Here's my card!
caterpillar image - Hambo Stamps (caterpillar digi)
fruit images - Fiskars Fresh Fruit set
punch - Stampin' Up scalloped circle (used to make "bites" in the fruit)
patterned paper - Doodle Pantry
dies - Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle
ribbon and ink - from my stash

sketch - Mojo Monday from February 14, 2011
The book I chose is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This was one of my daughter's favorite books when she was a toddler. In it, he eats all kinds of fruits and then eats some junk food and turns into a fat caterpillar and then goes into his cocoon and turns into a beautiful butterfly. Ahhh, if life were just that easy!
