Scrapbookaholic by Abby Challenge #3

Welcome to another Scrapbookaholic by Abby challenge.  This week it's all about raising awareness against animal cruelty.  The ASPCA has an important annual event in April. It is the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. Each year, the ASPCA urges supporters across the country to support their efforts and "Go Orange for Animals".   You can click here to see the different things you can do to help this organization or the things that you can do within your own community.  I personally have always adopted my pets from various organizations.  I believe that animals that have been abused, deserve to get a second chance in a good home.  My first adopted dog, Ginger, was dropped off at a center with a note that said, "my owner beats me and my neighbor saved me.  Please find me a good home".  We fell in love with her.  She was just 3 months old and when we brought her home she would not leave the corner because she was so scared.  Ginger was part of the family and it tooks us some time to rehabilitate her, but she came around.  Unfortunately, she got lose one day and we lost her to a car hitting her.  But she is always remembered as the best dog in the world! 

So in order to help raise awareness, the challenge this week is to create something with an animal and to use the color orange.  Below is a little card that I created. 

I used Create a critter and Pink by Design stamp and embelished with some stickles, flowers and ribbon.  It was very easy to make, but I love all the cheery colors and it's perfect for someone who needs a little lifting up.  So join the fun and visit Abby's blog to link up your project! This week's challenge is being sponsored by Oh My Crafts.  It's a $15 certificate to their store (who can't use a little extra cash for crafting!).  Don't miss out and start on your project! The challenge ends on April 23rd.

Hope you enjoyed it my little card and God bless!

Zeni your card is just so adorable. The colors are so fun and cheery. I love it. I am was so sad to hear that you lost your dog, that is always so hard because they really do become part of the family. It was so kind of you to give him a home. Hugs, Stephanie
