Bombshell Blog Hop

Hello Lovelies, It’s time for another Bombshell Blog Hop!!!  I am super stoked about this one as it is a color challenge and sometimes you just need that extra little push to get the creative juices flowing!  On this I kept it pretty simple as there are 7 gagillion other things going on at the moment.  I used the butterflies from the Butterfly Queen bombshell set

Here is the color Palette that MS. Alison gave us to work with this month!

Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #6

Hello Lovelies, I know it's been a while and I am sorry about that!  Today I have for you a new Beyone the Burtonesque Dolls challenge:

Challenge #6 Repo the Genetic Opera Vs The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Two truly off the wall, rock operas, both great fun, and very different.
All you have to do for this challenge is create a project inspired by one or both of these films.

There is some major inspiration on the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge Blog so you should head over there, but first you should see mine! 

Here is my card:


See, now that just makes you want to go and make something, even if you don't know anything about either of these movies, all you have to do is google them and the movies posters alone offer up so much inspiration, it's hard to know where to begin and most def. hard to stop!!!!

Ok Off you go to see what the other dolls have made for you!!!

StampInsanity…A Farewell


Hello Lovelies, today I have for you a wonderful StampInsanity challenge!!!  This one is so very wicked sweet!  I couldn’t wait to play!
First an announcement from our fearless leader Ms. Beth!

Happy Thursday! Wow - 80 challenges. That's a milestone! I'm so proud of all the beautiful Groovy Gurlz and the beyond-words incredible work they've produced for your inspiration over the last two years. There are just no words. That makes the Big Announcement that much bigger –and more heartbreaking. This will mark the final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge. After a long, looong, decision process, I've decided it is what is best !there is not enough time in a day, and I am sure you can all relate on some level! I cannot thank you enough for your support, your awesome submissions that you've shared with us and the lovely comments and compliments you've showered over us. I think I speak for the Gurlz when I say your kind words mean everything! So form all of us, a big groovy Thank You. Surely you'll see each of us around the blogosphere individually, and we can't wait!
Phew! all that aside, we have a challenge for you this week! I LOVE this challenge ! do you know what a CASE is? There are variations, but the one I like is Copy And Steal EVERYthing! of course, that's a misnomer, because one should ALWAYS give credit to the inspiring artist! Some say Copy & SHARE Everything. Pick your poison. Be sure to visit the Gurlz' blogs for details on their inspiration ~ remember, each project was inspired by some other genius!
That’s right, StampInsanity is coming to an end.  That makes me very sad…   Here is my creation for you.  Now keep in mind that the CASEing on my part came from the idea of the card not necessarily the whole project!  Although the colors are similar as well as some of the shapes used.  Anyway, I get away with myself.  Here is the original, I found it on Splitcoast Stampers it is called a Box Card!
Here is my version of what you can find from the link above!

Isn’t that cool!  The box itself only took one sheet of cardstock and the belt was a scrap!!! 
Please head on over to see what the other lovely Groovy Gurlz have made for you today!!!

Hello Lovelies, I know it's been a while, I am sorry about that!  It's been crazy busy here.  We decided we were going to go on a cruise for Christmas so we have been planning that plus my cousin is having her first baby, and we are doing a big baby shower this weekend since it's the first baby in a long time, so I have been making games and things for that!!!  Just not very much time to post although I am trying to get better!  Also I signed up for several swaps that have to be done before we leave, well a couple more quickly because they are going to australia!  Anyway, I know you don't want to hear about that so on the the project

Today is Bombshell sketch challenge.  If you head over to the bombshell blog you can find all the nitty gritty details about this challenge.   OH yeah, Bombshell has a new digi image!!!  Here is my project

SISC79 Chill Out

Hello Lovelies, Today I have for you a card I made for the SISC79!  It’s called Chill Out and we want you to use your chilliest blues for this project!  I used Henry and his Snowman for my card!  I know I know Christmas or winter but you  know it’s cold outside and I just felt the need!!!  So here is my project:
IMG_1188
As you can see I used several different shade of blue even on the snowman to make him shiny and also grey on the snow to make it dull!  Of course it’s my favorite easel card!  I’m trying to decide if I want to make more for Christmas or make something different for everyone… What do you think?  Leave me some love and then head on over to StampInsanity to see what everyone else has made!!!  You have two week to play in our challenge and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge!

Hello Lovelies,   Today I have for you a creation I made for the Beyond the Burtonesque Challenge Blog!  Our challenge this week is Scary Kids.  Yep that’s right, kids can be scary and we want to see your scary kids!!!  I have this image and I can’t remember where it came from or when I got it!  I am sorry to whom ever created her cause she is great and I wish I could give you credit for her!  If anyone knows please let me know so I can credit the artist!  Anyway she is just wicked sweet and the image itself is scary in a doll head cut off kinda way, but when you use two of her that’s just down right wrong, in a wicked sweet kinda way!!!
I used the movie, The Shining, for my inspiration for this project.  Here is my inspiration photo…

They look like innocent little girls in this picture, but if you have ever seen the movie, you know they are anything but innocent!!!  If you haven’t seen the movie please do!  If you like scary movies and or Steven King you will love this movie!
Here is my project….
