Green Eggs and ..Hambo Blog Hop!

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 PAT 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 book-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 the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hoedown blog, as well as on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, February 1.

My creation is based on this book
Nope, never read the book. I did a search on Amazon because I wanted to try and use a Hambo image that one might think is only for a specific occasion. So I chose this image (St. Pat Hamster), and searched the key words rainbow and pot of gold. Here is my take on the book:
May your pot be filled with happiness...

and a couple of bucks too! (that is a Canadian toonie attached worth $2.00)



Now dance on over to Stephanie for another great book!

You are so clever using a holiday image for a non holiday...I love it! And putting some cash inside will be a hit with who ever gets the actual card!
