Hogs & Sketches Challenge #2

Hi all! I did something unbelievable last night. I STAMPED!!! This is seriously only the second card I've made in the past MONTH. I'm going through massive stamping withdrawal! My mojo has been hiding out someplace far, far away. BUT - I wanted to be sure and play the second Hogs & Sketches Challenge from Hambo Stamps! I WON the challenge last month with this card, YAY! Well actually, the card didn't win because it was particularly good or anything, it was a random drawing. hee hee But BOY did I get a WONDERFUL prize!!! Monica sent me a stack of stamps like you wouldn't believe! Of course I already had several of them, because I love Hambo so, but sweet Monica suggested I use what I didn't want to keep for myself as door prizes for our SCS Shoebox Swap. So I did! She sent a second doorprize for that as well (a CD of ALL of their ADORABLE digi images - such a great prize!!). So, I want to sincerely thank Monica & Tim for their wonderful generosity. They are the best!! And I want to encourage YOU to get on over to the Hogs & Sketches blog and PLAY! There's only a couple entries so far, and you have until the 29th! The odds of winning are GOOD! And this month they are giving away TWO prizes - one to their favorite card, and one to a random winner. Good stuff!! For this challenge card I played with some of my fun, NEW Hambo rubber!! I just love this little Cat Witch!! And funny, I realized as I brought up my blog, the last card I made was with a witchy kitty too! I guess I can't own too many witchy kitty stamps! :-) I love the colors in this card more IRL - my photo is a bit muted compared to the real thing. And I coated the little square behind the kitty with Crystal Stickles so it's all sparkly and fun, something I can never seem to capture with a camera. This card makes me happy. :-) Thanks for stopping by today!
ETA: The photo was bugging me so I took a new one, propping the card up outside on the hood of my car! It's a little better... :-)
