Happy Thanksgiving!

OK so this post is a few days behind but I wanted to share the Thanksgiving card I made. All supplies from CTMH.

Smile ATC

I recently joined the MyGrafico Arts & Crafts Community. They have a fun little group over there called Brag Party. Each week they will give away free graphics and you just need to post what you created with them. So for this past week they were offering this cute tree from one of Mel's Brushes sets. Cute huh?

Fall Friends

The other day as I was strolling thru blogland I came across a fun blog with the cutest little images called Jens Digi Stamps. This image here was a freebie last week so I grabbed it to enter the current challenge. Jens Digi Stamps Challenge #8 - Autumn/Fall I colored with pencils and used some old CTMH papers from my stash.

Birthday Card

I made this card for one of the girls at work. I used Pinkie from Tiddly Inks and I'm so lovin' how she turned out. First I colored her with pencils and then used my gel pens to add some texture to her hair and dress. Then I dug thru my paper stash to find some that matched how I'd colored her.

I will be entering this card into the Tiddly Inks Challenge #73 - Anything Goes.

I've been stalking the Bombshell Stamps site for a while now, and they've recently had a relaunch of the Bombshell Forum. Well after seeing all the wonderful creations made with their stamps I could no longer resist. Plus they have a fun little sketch challenge going on that I wanted to join in on. This lovely little geisha also works for the Culture Shock Challenge this week with the theme of umbrellas.

More Steampunk

Was home from work today with a sick child so I had some time to stamp :) This is one of my new Steampunk Misses images I purchased from The Octopode Factory. Isn't she fabulous!?!

I used my cuttlebug folder again (clockworks) and then inked it up so y'all could see the texture. Made some more of the flowers that are my current obsession and then misted them with some medival gold Glitz Spritz. The DP is from CTMH and I colored her with pencils. I will be entering this in the Smeared & Smudged sketch challenge for November.

Thanks for visiting!

Angel ATC

I made this little Angel ATC for the challenge over at the Wicked Wednesday Weekly ATC Challenge, their theme this week.... yep you guessed it Angels :) This lovely stamp is from Stamp On It. My sentiment and all other supplies are from CTMH.

S&S November Blog Hop

Welcome to the November edition of the Smeared & Smudged Forum blog hop. In case you get lost along the way the complete list is on my sidebar. Knowing these stampers you will not want to miss one single blog on the hop. This months theme is "A Little Steamy". We were encouraged to use images, pieces or parts that embrace the steampunk genre.

I used a gear folder for my cuttle bug to add texture to the tag and the image is from Viva Las Vegastamps. Had to run this thru my scanner so the colors are a bit off and I've added some bronze metallic powder to the tag that you can't really see very well here. Now hop on to the next stop and see what steampunk goodness awaits you.
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to comeby after the weekend too as I ordered some other cool steampunk images but didn't have them in time to create with for this hop :)

Halloween Fun

Here's a few fun Halloween pics for ya. First is the kiddo at the pumpkin carving party we went to. I think this pic was right after I asked him how exactly was he going to cut that mouth out, lol.He decided Saturday that he wanted to go trick or treating so we had to rush to the store for a costume. Well he saw this Bakugan Dragonoid that he just had to have. I liked the swamp monster or the skeleton but no, had to be Bakugan.
If you've followed my blog over the 31 Days of Halloween you might remember I wrote about my momories of dressing as a witch and I was so excited about the perfect sized broom. Well my mom sent me this for and my lil sis all dressed up. I'm not sure why we wanted to wear the wigs, lol. I'm guessing I was about 9 or 10 here. What fun we had :)
