Well, I'm hot, tired and late with my HDH post this week.  I hereby promise never to complain about unseasonable cold weather again, EVER!  It's week 2 for our  "Unlucky for Some" (the number 13) challenge, meaning we want to see 13 elements on your project.  We Minions aren't too particular about counting, being the fabulously creative souls that we are, so give it a go and let us know how YOU count to 13.  My piece has 2 DP's, a Spellbinder's Grand Labels die cut, a distressed piece of kraft paper embossed with a Tim Holtz Halloween folder (folder not counted), 2 Grungeboard letters covered with Washi tape (tape also not counted) 5 Tim Holtz Alphabet cards, a label, and a black cat cut from a Tim Holtz die.  Personally, I think black cats are VERY lucky and speaking of...being LUCKY, I mean.

Haunted Design House took the hotly contested 6th DT Throwdown Challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum, narrowly edging out the fabulous Smeared Ink team in the first ever tie breaker.  I wish to thank all who participated, took the time to vote, voted for us (XX) and most of all my fabulous teamie Creepy Glo (we were one Minion short this time, which makes us all the more LUCKY!) See our fab winning projects HERE and scroll down a couple to see my personal post.  Hope you can all stay cool.  It's bloody hell here in the dungeon.

I'm also entering this in the Left of Center challenge under the LOC theme (in case the label doesn't count as a sentiment) and Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes.
