"Hogs and Sketches" Challenge

Welcome to the first Hogs and Sketches challenge for Hambo Stamps!
I will be hosting a monthly sketch challenge featuring the whimsical images from Hambo Stamps. Don't have any stamps from Hambo? Not to worry! You can use one of their FREE digi-stamps to create your card. You can find their free cat and pig images in their digital shop.

I am not much on hard-core rules and regulations, so I have kept it simple. Using the sketch below, you can upload one or more cards via Mr. Linky. You must use at least one Hambo Stamp (rubber or digital) on your card. Other than that, you can use anything your heart desires. Have fun with it!

What's in it for you? FREE STAMPS from Hambo Stamps! Monica has kindly offered to provide a prize package for one lucky participant. I will put all the names in a jar and draw the name of the winner on September 30th.

All samples must be posted to my blog using the Mr. Linky no later than midnight (EST) on September 29th.
Please use "hands1" in your keyword field so we can keep track of the different sketch challenges.

Here is the sketch layout:

Monica Hunter said...

I love seeing what everyone did! Melissa, you'll have to tell how you did the snow on that last card. It looks like crumbled styrofoam residue on the blue DP. Great job ladies! :)
