Bombshell Bloghop

Hello lovelies, yes you read correctly, a Bombshell Blog Hop!!!  I have missed them so. You should have come from Rachael's blog This month we were challenged to make a wedding themed project for the hop and I have made something that I think could interpert wedding/love.  A while ago while perusing through the thrift shops I came across this little lantern that needed a little help.  You all know me though, if I think I can fix it I will own it and nothing will stop me!!! LOL  Anyway, I picked it up and knew right away what I wanted to do with it, but never could settle on a stamp set to use.  So when this challenge came along i knew that I could finally make it.  So here I am stamping on vellum and coloring with copics thinking why stop at one set, so my future will be filled with more vellum so that I can change out the pictures when I get the whim. 

As I said I don't know if most would consider it wedding, but itis about love, and you really shouldn't have a wedding without least that's my opinion!!  Anyway it's about love and not only for the saying on the sides but because i incorporated my family into it.  I used the children's favorite colors, which is why there is a blue and an orange, and the hubby well he's in everything I do.... oh my that sounded my goodriend BD would say, here's the sick bucket!!!! 

Doesn't it glow so pretty!!!

The poem says: Life without love, it's often said, is a seedless garden where the flowers are dead.

So now what to do with it.... well  I just got a new patio set with a gazebo so I am thinking it will hand from the center of the gazebo for all to see!!! So now off you go to Cheryl's blog to continue your Bombsell journey today!!! Enjoy and make sure to leave everyone some love!!!

Hello Lovelies, it's Tuesday which means it's my turn to play on the Smeard Ink DT blog Smudgy Antics!!!  I have for you today a card I made using a couple of my favorite things....vampires and ummmmm vampires....LOL  I used an image from the Glam Vamps set from SI.  These are digi images that I printed out then colored with my copics.  I then used this cool digi scrapbook set I found featuring another of my favorite things, the Twilight series!  I think it turned out wicked cool! It also follows the Smeared and Smudged Sketch challenge card sketch for April!!!

Bombshell Sketch April

Hello lovelies, I hope today finds you doing well!!!  I have to share with you today a card I made slightly following the Bombshell Sketch challenge for April!!  I have also added it to the Bombshell Blog so be sure to head over there to check out all the other DT creations!!! 

I know I am a latergator but it was necessary in my mind!!!   I had a card in the makes the first week of April, and by the time it was done I decided that I didn't like it and wasn't going to show it!!!  No matter what I tweaked on it or added to it I could not bring myself to like it.... So I scrapped it and said I will wait for my new sets to get here..... WELL...  I forgot to remind Shannon that I moved, she forgot I moved and sent them to the old addy, luckily the tenant we have there refused them so they went back to Shannon and then out to me!!!  Poor stamps have been from one coast to the other and back again!!!!  They were tired when they got here, but oh so ready to be inked(they told me so!!)So I inked them up and make 2 projects in 2 days!!! Nothing like new rubber to give inspiration!!!  Anyway, here is the sketch card I made using Rose's portrait:
So as you can see it's not quite the sketch that Kathi made but I think sketches are guideline to give inspiration anyway!!! 

Challenges I entered:
Pile It On - use a rubber stamp
Drunken Stampers - don’t use any tools that uses electricity
Art Impressions Stamps - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - #26 Anything Goes
Pixie Dust Studio - Say It Out Loud, include a sentiment

Smeared and Smudged Member Bog Hop

Hello Lovelies, and welcome to this month member hop!!!  This month we set the challenge to use metal in or on your projects and brads and eyelets did not count!!!!  I am very excited to see what others have come up with! Today I have for you a chipboard bird!  I love chipboard and especially love it when I am altering it for a fat book swap!!!  This is just the beginning for this bird, he has more fluff coming, but I wanted to show off his metal glory before I covered some of it up!!! 

See his little flappy wing!!!  That is from the Quoth the Raven set from Smeared Ink!

The paper he is lying on is just a little sneaky peaky at what the other side is going to be decorated like!!!! 
Hopefully I will remember to post the completed project when it is done, before I send it away!!! 

So hop on over to my other Smeared and Smudgers blogs to see what they have created with metal!!!
