Fire means Life!

Welcome to the "Channel Surfing"  Blog Hop sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo customers and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict TV show titles! It might be our favorite show, 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 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. 

Outwit, Outplay, Outlast!!

Our family vice is watching Survivor...along with a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies!

To decorate this fancy fold base, I used a pair of matches for the embellishments (aka torches..."Fire represents life in the game of Survivor.") They are tied up with raffia.  Then I used a pearl pen for the pearls on the primas and around these natives' necks.  Chief Hambooli (times 3) was watercolored! (Sentiment: Tribe has spoken.)

Now, I guess with these matches, this card 

Here are the channels to flip through...
