Hambo Stamps Name That 'Toon

Welcome to our Hambo "Name That Toon" blog hop!

If you are following along in the hop you should have arrived from Dawn's blog Sunnyside Up if not the beginning is at Talk To The Ham.
The challenge for this blog hop is to create a project that represents and depicts a comic strip! 
Maybe it’s your favorite one you read as a kid like mine!

I was a little girl in the 1960's can you guess from looking at my card my favorite Sunday newspaper comic? 

 
That's right Family Circus!  Do you remember Dolly, Billy and Jeffy?

I used Hambo Stamps Dress Up for my take on Dolly & Billy's dress up play.
I colored this cute rubber stamped image with Copic markers:

Dress/Tie/Hat - Y13, Y15, Y17
Shirt/Purse/Hatband - B63, B60
Flowers R35, R46
Hair & Skin - E35, E37, E39, E55, E49, D57, E59, E00, E01, E11
Jacket/Hat - N1, N3, N5
Background - BG000, BG11, BG23
and kept the layout simple just like in the cartoon.

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose comic strip-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 of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, January 23, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, January 26 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!
 
The next stop on our hope is Jane, enjoy!
Thanks for visiting my blog today -

What a perfect Family Circus homage - Dolly just needs a pony-tail is all. This was always my mom's favorite strip, and she'd call me to ask if I'd seen it that day. GREAT job Jan!!
