Hambo Hoedown Challenge #36 - Alpha Name

I received this awesome digi called Flower Monster from Hambo Stamps to use in this week's alpha name challenge.  If you haven't seen Hambo's digital stamps, you've got to check them out, there are so many great digis. The challenge is to create a project that uses an item that starts with the first letter of your first name.  My name is Debbie so I had to use an item on my card that starts with a "D".  I used dirt.  The Flower Monster reminded me of a monster who ruts around in the dirt digging up flowers to eat.

I created a bunch of flowers for the Flower Monster to pick using the flower trio digi we received a few weeks ago from Hambo Stamps.  I tore the card and smeared dirt on it to make it look like the Flower Monster had been munching on it.  I glued dirt ( D for Dirt and D for Debbie) on the card and on the Flower Monster's hands and feet. I've never glued dirt to a card before,  but that's why they call it a challenge.  Here's a closer look at the dirt on and below the Flower Monster's foot.

I hope you like my card, with dirt, thanks for looking.


  1. Hahaha! LOVE the dirt on this! Absolutely perfect for the monster! :)

  2. Debbie, you used Dirt for D?!?! You are SO creative! I never would have thought of that. How sweet the whole card turned out, and it depicts the sentiment perfectly :) Awesome job, thanks for playing along at the Hoedown this week.

  3. This is super cute!! I LOVE the dirt idea, LOL, what a wonderful addition especially with all the flowers. Thanks for joining us at the Hoedown!!

  4. I love the dirt. The 'D' thing slowed me down quite a bit though.. I was eager to see what another person who needed a 'D' item would use!

    Although, I do think you're playing 'dirty'... (Oh, I HAD to do it...)

  5. I was waiting to see what you used for the dirt. Dirt! How original. :)
