Default Dog Days Of Summer Master Challenge Thread

JUN13VSNK ~ Saturday ~ June 8 ~ 5:00 PM EST ~ Bright Star
Title: Bright Star
Hostess: annsforte3, Ann
Keyword: JUN13VSNK
Day/Date: Saturday, June 8, 2013
Time: 5 PM EST

The dog days of summer were named as such due to the constellations that were drawn by ancient societies. Sirius, whose meaning is the “dog star,” is a part of the constellation Canis Major, which rises and sets with the sun in late summer. It was believed that Sirius was in conjunction with the sun during a time, which provided reason for the rising heat.

Since Sirius is one of the brightest stars, your challenge is to make a card for the brightest star in your life . This could be a graduate from college or high school, or that neighbor who saw that you needed a little help. Whatever the reason, all of us have had someone who has brightened our days. They were a star for us. So make that “bright star” a card, by using either a sunset or sunrise. Just be sure that you have some kind of a star somewhere on the front of the card.


So again my challenge is for you to make a card using either a SUNSET OR SUNRISE and to include some kind of star somewhere on the front of your card.

Your star may be from a punch, stamp, digital art, or doodled. Your sunset or sunrise may be included in a stamp.

In your link to the chat thread, please let us briefly know whom your bright star is (without getting to personal) and the reason they will receive this card.

The dog days of summer most frequently occur in the months of July and August, two months regularly bearing the highest of summer temperatures. However, within the Southern Hemisphere, the dog days occur during the austral summer. Thus it occurs in the months of January and February.
