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!!!
