Couch Potatoes, Arise!

It's time to do some Crafty channel surfing, as in the "Channel Surfing"  Blog Hop sponsored by Hambo Stamps!  Today, Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team unite to bring you fun creations that depict TV show titles! It might be a favorite show from this season's lineup, or a nostalgic look back at one we enjoyed in the past, or just one that was fun to design. And NO COMMERCIALS to interrupt your enjoyment!
A prize will be awarded to one participant whose TV-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, May 23.
If you arrived here from Jenn'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!

So let me introduce you to a couple of shows I enjoy watching.
Both of my cards feature a lovable pup named Bailey.  Bailey is part of a collection of digi's that are too darn cute not to fall in love with.

My first card features Bailey Cupcake digi image, and he is anxiously awaiting orders to eat his cupcake.  But in the meantime, he is on guard duty because there's a war on, a CUPCAKE WAR (Food Network).

 My second card features "Bailey Flower" digi image, and one of my favorite channels
is the Home & Garden Channel (HGTV).  Bailey loves to dig up gardens, play with dirt, and loves the tickle of fresh flowers.  He is a YARD CRASHERS' mascot for sure!!

Psst...want to know a secret?  My card is my entry for the Hambo Challenge blog, because it follows their challenge guideline, which is a sketch this week!  Now that's what I call multi-tasking!!

Now, let go of the remote, sit back and sip your Starbucks or Dunkin or diet coke, and enjoy the show!  Your next stop is Dawn's Blog.  But please don't go before leaving a little love here first, and have fun!!

Happy crafting!!

Great cards! HGTV is a wonderful place to spend your time :)

You asked about the Gears on my card when you stopped by on the hop. They are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. I bet if you "google" it you'll find them :)
