Blog Hop: Hambo Time machine

Welcome to "Hambo's Time Machine" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict something cool from the 1980's! It might be our favorite book, something in the news then, a fashion fad, a song, or something that really stuck out to us in looking back. If you arrived here from Jenn 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 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, September 25, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 22 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!
Now here is my creation:
It was in the 80s that we started having computers
and many of us played hours and hours of packman.
This game inspire me to make this card.
The background to this card is an image
I found on internet and saved to my computer to print.
The packman images are from rubber plate.
Remember we used to make many fun and
cheap jewellery and other things with this rubber plate.
I cut the circles with a spellbinder circle and
my bigshot.

The word wicked is a much used word in the
80s and printed with the packmania font
that you can freely download at
The people that have so much fun with
the packman game are a digital image
by Hambo and is called "Laughing"
and can be found HERE.

I think I go and find the game again
and have another go at it:

Now swing on over to
for another great trip back to the 80's
that will jog your memory --
or show you something you missed!

Have a creative day!

Yep, I spent many a quarter trying to master this game, but I was never very good at it. (I was much better at Centipede.) Fun card Hetty - thanks for being a part of our 80s flashback!!

I always loved those laughing people from Hambo...nice way to incorporate them. Hopefully you spent the 80s laughing and having fun too!

Love the way you used this image with the Pac Man paper & cute fun foam Pac Man characters. Perfect for the 80's theme.

Love your card Hetty! I played that game with my son when he was little! Using the laughing image, worked perfectly for this!

Hello Hetty! Your Pac-Man card is really fun and I like how you added the "Laughing" digi! I'm getting some ideas for kids' cards from your super duper card!

Hetty, I love how you added the people with the Pac Man images. Isn't the DaFont site great? I get a lot of fonts from there. Terrific use of the foam shapes.

What a fun card! PacMan is certainly synonymous with the 80s. Love the bright colors on this.
