12 Days of Christmas day 5 and Forever Night Challenge #20

Hello Lovelies, I hope you are enjoying this hop!  I am!  Today I have for you a card I made using an image from Simply Betty Stamps!  You know I love me some Betty stamps!!!  This card is called a double z fold card and you can find a tutorial for it on splitcoaststampers
isn’t he cute!  I know it’s not the best picture but it will have to work as I took a fall in the craft room and damaged the camera!  Thankfully I had pictures of all my 12 days projects before that happened!
Here is the card opened:
Remember to head off and see what everyone else has made for you today!

Forever Night Challenge Blog is back with another freaky friday challenge for you!!!  Today we are sponsored by Bugaboo stamps and I love these little skelly people!  They are cute in a creepy sort of way!   Today I made for you a scrapbook page.  I know I know, pick your jaw up off the ground!!!  Honestly people things can change!!!  I think!  LOL  Anyway, this little cutie made me think of my kids when they were younger always trying to carry things that were to big for them, and some cute digi papers I recently got, so I thought, why not combine the two!  I know she's carrying a present and that really has nothing to do with snow, except if your my kids, even now as teens, getting snow is like a gift so it worked.  At least in my mind.  Anyway there are no pictures added yet as we haven't had our first snow day this year :(  but as soon as we do I am totally taking pictures, as always, and they will be added!!!  So it's nice to know I have a layout already waiting on pictures instead of the millions of pictures waiting on layouts!!!
Let me know what you think then head on over to the forever night challenge blog and play with us!!!!  You know you want to !!!

12 Days of Christmas Day 4

Hello Lovelies, welcome back!  I hope you are having a wonderful time on this lovely hop!  Today I have for you not a card but an altered item!   I have joined an altered domino ornament swap for the past couple of years.  The host of this years swap asked a favor from the swappers, she volunteers at a nursing home in her area, and she asked us to make a few extra so that she could decorate a tree for the people there!  So here is one of the extra domino’s I altered!
The images are from Itkapilli and the beads are micro beads from Pennywise Arts.  Hope you have enjoyed my project today, leave me some love and go and see what everyone else has made.  Remember the blog roll is on the sidebar!

Freaky Friday Challenge #19

Hello Lovelies!  Nope it’s not a 12 days post it is Freaky Friday on Forever night!!!!  I know I haven’t posted the last couple of Fridays and I am totally sorry about that!  It’s been stoopid buzy!!!  Anyway this weeks challenge is Nightmare Before Christmas! 

So I have these images from Simply Betty that are wicked sweet!  So I had to use them, then I thought, well what am I going to do with them!   So I started googling(is that a word, it is now!), and boy the inspiration you find in images!  So I am going to show you my inspiration photos first and then my project.

I love that in this picture Sally is the only color in the whole thing!  So that was my first idea!  Then I thought well I need to find a cool looking moon to go in the background so this is what I found.

And this is what I came up with!  I used this blue moon as my color spot and it was the only color in my project!

I hope you enjoy and remember to head on over to the Forever Night Challenge Blog to see what everyone else has made and we would love for you to participate with us this week!

12 Days of Christmas Day 1

It’s here, it’s here, my 2nd most favorite time of the year!!!  Welcome to the 2nd annual 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style!  Are you stoked?  I am !  There are so many bloggers this year!!!  So I have listed the blog roll on the right hand side bar!  It will be there throughout the entire time!  Today I have for you a card I made with a new layout I just learned recently!  It is called a center step card and the tutorial can be found on the Bombshell blog!
I used an image from my beloved StampInsanity
Isn’t he just the cutest? 
Now you all know I am not a bragger or a tooter of my own horn, but I have to tell you that the green of his outfit, shoes, hat, and ribbons are all done with one copic marker!  It took a while but yep I only used one color!!!  I am totally proud of that fact! 
Now wish me a happy birthday, tell me weather or not you like my card and head on over to the next person on the list!  As I said before I have the roll posted on the sidebar!!!
