August Pin Up Challenge

Hello Lovelies,  Bombshell's Ms. August, has issued her challenge, which she's calling "Please Your Man"! Use your Bombshell stamps to create a project for a man in your life! Notice that she said "a" man, not necessarily "the" man, so it can be your father, brother, son, lover, postman, mechanic, etc. :D

I made this little ATC card for a nephew who has just received his driver's license and thought he could use a gift card for gas money!

stamp set: King of the Road

Head on over to the Bombshell blog to see what the other DT members have made for you!!!

Pity Party Swap #2

Hello Lovelies, today I have for you another project from the pity party swap I mentioned yesterday! I don't know if I mentioned it or not but along with all the supplies you need to make your project there is a instruction page along with pictures so that you can make it with anything you have or in your paper style!!

Today's project is from Lisa Perez:

It is a cupcake holder.... I put it together without the banner and cupcake so that it will be ready to go for the next special birthday person, which in my family is ummmm ME!!!!  LOL(of course that isn't until december) :(  anyway you can see the banner pieces and cupcake pick in the inside of the holder!!

Pity Party Swap Goodies #1

Hello Lovelies,  This month I am going to be participating the a blog-a-long with Effy Wild.  She said that it had been so long since she blogged that she wanted to do it and have friends do it with her so I said why not, we all know I can, I mean I have done 31 Days of Halloween since it's inception so the month of August should not be a problem right?  Well at least I hope not!!!  Anyway why should I just keep it to one month a year... Does this mean that I will be posting something everyday of the year... probably NOT but it does mean that I will try to be better at posting...

 Last month I signed up to be part of a pity party swap... OK background info... I am in a yahoo group called PennyWiseArts...  They are a lovely bunch of ladies!  Anyway every year there is a retreat which I would love to go to, it's in my favorite state at my 2nd favorite time of year, but alas, I didn't know of this group when I lived in this state... Washington State.  So of course I have not been able to go to a retreat.  At these retreats every person going designs a project and provides all the major supplies for everyone attending to make this project.  So those of us who can't make it to the yearly retreat started doing a Pity Party Swap so that we could feel like a part of the retreat too!
 This year we had 11 participants including myself so i thought that I would make a project from the Pity party swap on the days when I don't have Design team projects to post so that you could see what we have been up to!

So here goes,   This project is from: Becky Hoerr!  She gave us everything except the markers to color the image with and I used Distress Markers to color mine.  The instructions said to cut the image into 4 pieces when you were done coloring and that is a great idea except for, a) I only had scissors and b) I couldn't cut a straight line with scissors if you paid me to, so there you have a whole image!!!
