HSC91: Obscure Holiday

Friday, October 16, 2009

Good Morning!

Today I have another Hanna Stamps challenge for you all and this one is being hosted my yours truly. :)

We all know October is National Breast Cancer awareness month, but did you know that there are other causes out there that need some love too?? For instance, did you know that it's Eat Country Ham month?? Or that it is Cookie Month, or Clergy Appreciation Month? It's even Sarcastic Month this month! So my Hanna Stamps challenge (HSC91) is for you to create a card celebrating these lesser known causes!

My card celebrates Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. I used the cute hound dog from the recently released 'Dectective Hanna' set. Looking at this card now, I wish I had done a scene behind the hound, but hindsight is 20/20 right? *roll eyes* I used some old, old paper from Crate Paper and the layout is from this week's Unscripted Sketches #26.

Hope you can play!

PS. Only a few days left to sign up for the first ever Hanna Stamps Fan Blog Hop happening on Monday!! It's a chance to get out your Hannas and Rileys and get noticed!!

PPS. You may have noticed that the Hanna Stamps store is closed for inventory. Hopefully it should be back up and running soon. It's a lot of work inventoring a whole store just by one person! :D

What an admiral theme for your card and that little wiener dog seems harmless enough! As a child my neighbor had two that would chase us up to our house and nip at our ankles...did you know they were used as a work dog to dig out badgers? Anyhow we appreciate your taking the time to create this great card and partake in The Unscripted Sketch challenge this week! Beth aka BR-T
