Hambo Hoedown #22 - Doghouse Blues

It's Hambo Hoedown time! You know how I keep telling you that if you play, Hambo will send you a free digital image for the next week? Well, I've been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for my free digital image, but it's Wednesday, and it never came. Wanna know why? Because I never emailed my card image to them. It's in the rules! You have to email them your card image to get the freebie. GAH! I guess that's to make up for the fact that I actually read the challenge instructions last week, so I needed to forget something. Sigh.

So I didn't get the free doghouse image. And this week's challenge (see? I did read it!) was to incorporate dog tag, dog bone, or metal charm. Well, that kinda means I needed to use a Hambo dog image. Fortunately, I had Drooly from a previous challenge. Yay, me! I made this:

Continuing with my "use it up" mode lately, I used some papers from the DCWV Pets Pack (it's 12x12, and I will never, ever, use it all), including that strip of embossed DOG BONES! The sentiment is from A Muse. For extra credit I added a metal bone clip I've had in my stash for years - at least 2 or 3, or whenever Recollections closed. {moment of silence}

Here's a close-up of the DOG BONES that I remembered to include:

Yes, I am very proud. Also, please notice his drool is colored with a glitter pen, the better to stick to you:

His tag was colored with a silver glitter pen. Love those things. Oh, and that sukky coloring on Drooly's fur? I totally meant to do that. It makes him look like he has a mix of colors in his fur. No, really!

So remember, if you play the Hambo Hoedown (and you should), remember to not only follow the challenge, but also email your card to them so you get the free digital image the next week. Don't be like me.

Thanks for stopping by!
