Falling Leaves

Hello Lovelies, today I have to share with you a wonderful little fall card I made for the new Dilly Beans challenge and the DigiStamps4joy.

The Dilly Beans challenge is Fall and the DigiStamps4Joy challenge is All the leaves are brown, you have to use leaves as embellies.  Well i didn't have any so I made some.. I have been playing with shrinky dinks lately and so I embossed them and then colored them with alcohol inks.  My image is from Dilly Beans and I love her....and the pumpkins too!!!

Let's Hear it for theGirls!!!

Hello Lovelies!  It's time for this months Bombshell Blog Hop!!!  Last month was all about the boys and this month it's all about the GIRLS!!!!  Here is what Ms. Alison had to say about this months hop!
 
Last month, it was all about the boys...well this month, in anticipation of October, the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Girls!" This theme is a little more specific then last month's though. I want you to create a card or project that could be sent to someone during October, which is (here in the States), Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So let's all Think Pink!

You can go with a pink card, Girl Power, use the infamous pink ribbon symbol, etc. But we want to worship those ladies that are fighting (or have fought) for their lives.
 
So I couldn't wait to get started on my project for this month!  Unfortunately I have had several members of my family fight this battle and not win.  I wanted to make a bracelet that could be worn all the time not just during the month so I pulled out the beads and the shrinky dinks and got to stamping and beading!  I made a bracelet for all the ladies in my family to wear in rememberance of those we have lost.  One Bombshell for each lovely lady we have lost.  I do not want to add any more to this bracelet!!! 
 
I used Bombshell Angel, Butterfly Queen, and Retro Cowgirl for my bracelet.
 



 
 
Now remember that you can win prizes from Bombshell every month just by participating in our challenges and commenting on all the members of the hops projects!!!  Random winners are chosen every month by our prize patrol hottie!!!  So leave everyone some love and I will give you the entire hop list in case you missed anyone!!!!

Autumn!!!

Hello Lovelies,  Do you know how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE autumn/fall!!!  Let's just say A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT!!!!!!  The smells, the cool, crisp air, the colors...EVERYTHING!!!  So this weeks challenge over at Dilly Beans Autumn Colors is totally for me...not to mention a nice break from making all the Halloween projects I have been working on for 31 days!!!  Anyway, I took the time out to make this lovely little card in Autumn colors because she is probably my favorite Dilly image so far.... Now don't get me wrong I like them all but there is something about her that makes her the favorite of the moment!!! 


 
Isn't she wonderful?!?!?!?!  Her name is Lila and she is colored with prismacolor pencils then matted on some fall patterened paper called Falling Foliage from the Shades of Autumn collection from Moxxie.  Then placed on some close to cocoa cardstock from Stampin Up... I think she turned out great and the leaves have that color changing quality going on, where if you look at them long enough they to will change into some wonderful rich colors!!!  At least in my opinion!!! LOL
 
I hope you enjoy!
 
Oh I wanted to share that I made top 3 last week with my Robot tag!!!  Super excited about that!!!

We are all a Little Mad here!!!!

Hello Lovelies, today I have to share with you a tag I made using an image from AlteredPages.com.  I love their collage sheets so many to choose from!  Today I took one image from the Black and Sepia collage sheet AP-2023 if your searching for it!  I made the image into 4 sizes just by resizing it.  If I would have thought about it I would have written down the sizes I used but I didn't!  sorry.  Anyway I took a tag and colored the background with Dylusions Ink Sprays: Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Melted Chocolate, and Black Marble.  I love my sprays!!!!  I then ran the tag through my big shot using a Halloween embossing folder my Tim Holtz.  I fussy cut the skeleton images that I resized and layerd them like a totem and adhered them to my tag then added words from a dilly beans set called Cute and Dark sayings, added some black ribbon and a little walnut ink and there you have it!  A cute little Halloweed tag!  Hope you enjoy!

september BS sketch
Isn’t it wonderful!

Here is my take on the sketch.  I am using my newly acquired Bombshell Stamp set Girls Ruin and I have to say I really like this set!  I have colored her with a mixture of copic markers and prismacolor pencils.  The patterned paper is from My Minds Eye and it’s from the Lost and Found Collection.
