If a Monster Could Hoedown


Are you ready for a Hoedown?  I can't say I have ever been to one.  I have done some line dancing way back when, but that is a bit off topic!  I am not sure what happens at a real hoedown but at a Hambo Hoedown, Hambo Stamps throws out a challenge, you create a card (or project) within the challenge requirements using a Hambo image, link it up to the Hambo Hoedown post, email Hambo Stamps a photo of the card (important step), and they will send you a FREE digi just for participating!  How cool is that?!


So this week challenge is to create a project with an item that begins with the letter of your first name.  The design team was also given Flower Monster to work with as well (he is the freebie this week...or was it last week...I am new here remember?!).  I love, love this monster...so cute and there are two sentiments that go with him!  So I created my card based on the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #128 (which is revisiting an older sketch #7).  


Since my name is Andrea, I had to come up with an "A" item to put on my card...which I will admit I nearly forgot about!!  So "A" is kind of hard...I finally came up with Alphabet Stickers!  So I replaced the "If" in the sentiment with a giant "if".  My monster was watercolored with ink pads and an aquabrush.


So make sure to check out all of the details over at Hambo Hoedown and get creating!  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
