Sassy for Day 24

I made this card for Smeared and Smudge's challenge, but I decided I could use it for my 31 days of Halloween too!
I colored the image from Stampinsanity and added some fibers and spider webs in the corners. Simple and pretty ..
I added the "Sassy:" in the corner just because..
Hopefullly I can get caught up this week and post my stuff on time.. lol
Have a great night!

Saturday, October 23, 2010

sorry I'm late for day 23

I went out with friends n hubster last night, and feeling so well. lol

I did manage to finish the matching bottle to the one I made a couple days ago..

I painted this one black, then squished some Pearl ink to make it shiny..

Then I stamped a rose from bombshell stamps and some lil skulls from the same set (girls ruin) I believe.

I added a skull and some little skulls on wire to finish it off..

Have a great night and see you tomorrow!

Friday, October 22, 2010

Yay Friday!!! And day 22

I was nervous I wouldn't get this one done in time..
I still have the annoying headache and fatigue..but fighting through it..
Then I just had to go to Yoga.. I always feel soooooo much better after.. It is soooo relaxing, after the pain that is lol
I painted the inside of my coffin I already decorated on the outside...
Then I added some glow in the dark paint :) I know.. awesome!!

I colored Lilith from Stampinsanity to match the glow and added a ghosty.. I still thought I needed more, but not too much.. so I added some dried flowers, a little hanging moon (that didn't show up) and gave Lilith a broom..

Whew!! I barely made it..
Go check out all the fabulousness on my sidebar!

A bottle for day 21

I think My meds are starting to work on my blood pressure and my heachaches are now a dull roar... so.. I was able to get a little project done yay!
I got a couple vials from a co-worker and stamped a little grumpie from Smeared and Smudged on the front of vellum.. then added a couple stamped tags with skulls from Bombshell stamps and topped it off with a sparkly eyed skull :)
I am already working on my next project, so hope you will come back tomorrow!
Have a great day!

Day 20!!

Whew I can't believe we've hung in there this long!!
This has been soooo fun!
I love seeing how creative and talented the ladies @ Smeared And Smudged are every day!

Getting new ideas and sharing techniques is so worth all this work!

I have to recycle a pic or two since my headaches have been wearing me down. I didn't have time to work on anything last night. Sons of Anarchy was on too...soooo...sorry :(

But I made this little tin for a challenge and I still love it!!
I covered it with some awesome paper from idk where.. then wrapped a ribbon around it and tied a piece of rafia and a skull for the extra touch :)

I made this little tag a while ago, as you can see from the time stamp :)
I love this image but can't seem to remember where it's from :(  It's not Halloweenyish, but maybe the spiderweb helps :)

Have a great day! I hope to get caught up on all my projects tonight if my body will let me :)

Day 19!

I have been missing a bit lately, but hope to get better for the rest of the 31 Days Of Halloween from Smeared and smudged..

I painted a little coffin silver, it is hard to see, but it is shiny
colored a Werewolf image from Strange skin and added some bling and flowers..
Ready to fill!
I will probably make my day 20 project the filling for the coffin :)

Day 18 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Sorry guys...I missed yesterday..

A skull attempt on Day 16

Ok blogland.. I finally got a skull.. It isn't a full skull, just the mask. The craft store was all out :(
But I think this turned out ok..
I painted it with black paint and added some glitter on the second coat.
Then I outlined the mouth and cheek bones with silver paint.. Added purple paint mixed with glitter to the eyes and a few designs around..
then I stamped a couple things using Bombshell stamps and white ink.
Love and hate, a rose and some barbed wire around the top to finish it off..
I hope you like my first attempt at a skull!
 Here it is in a temporary home on my windowsill :)

make sure to visit the rest of the blogs for wicked projects! These ladies are amazingly talented!

day 15!

Sorry kids.. I don't have a project this morning.. :(
But... we went Halloween costume shopping last night! It was such a blast..
I was going to be a Witch (since I can actually dress up for that)
But Hubby found a sweet Pirate Costume and I decided to be a wench with him. I have a pic on my facebook, if you are on there.. I'll try to put one up later since I can't now. :(

Hopefully I can keep up this weekend. We've got lots going on, Samhain carnival for the kids on Saturday and Dinner with the dead for me on Sunday. I am sooo excited!

Have a great day and hopefully I can find time when I get off work to make something for Halloween!

Here's my lil card. I used Lilith, colored her with my pencils, and added some stickles!

31 Days Of Halloween day 12!

yep.. Day 12! We're sooo close to Halloween I can taste it!
All the haunted houses, the scary tours, the decorations.. I am just sucking it all in and loving it!

Today I decided to share a project I had already made for another challenge.. But It is Halloweeny so It will fit in nicely here..
I colored my Lil Grumpy orange to match the orange card. added a stickled spider and ribbon and taa-daa! A card :)

Simple. Easy.. I'm exhausted.. Work burnout, exercise burnout, creativity burnout.. my body is starting to act up again, so I am going to struggle to hang in here every day, but I WILL do it! I'm a little obsessive that way :)

Simply betty challenge/smeared and smudged day 10

I just had to play along one more time..
Simplybettychallenges /on-4th-day-of-halloween was a challenge to incorporate Raven's and a quote "His voice was soft and very slow As he quoted The Raven from Edgar Allen Poe: “and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor shall be lifted? Nevermore…”
I used my white pen and wrote it out, since my printer is being a pain..
then I stamped some ravens ( I think they are anyways) and colored James to add to the mix. I think he sort of fits the quote, he has a contemplative look on his face :)
I added some buttons and a glittery raven to finish it off.

 I am also counting this as my day 10 of the 31 days of Halloween at Smeard and Smudged.. check out the deets on my sidebar for all the goodies and blogroll of awesomeness!

Bookmark for me! 31 days of Halloween

I decided I needed a new bookmark.
I colored this image from Bugaboo stamps and decided to enter in in the Anything goes challenge here..Catch the bug challenge
I colored Hagrid with my good ol pencils.. I know..I really need markers..
then added some glittery stickers and a cute little owl and finished it off with a book button on a bit of tulle fabric.
 I also managed to count this in the 31 days of Halloween at Smeared and Smudged, see my sidebar for all the details!!

One for Just Because

I was so thrilled to get to play with these Images from Stampinsanity Katie is such a great image to use to inspire, to give hope, just to make you smile.
I lost my mom to cancer a couple years ago, so this was especially touching to be given the honor to use Katie.
I was itching to make a card so I did :)
I colored Katie with my good ol pencils and added some stickles. I used some pink polka dotted ribbon to make two little ribbons. Then added some primas, more stickles and some pearly bling. Oh and of course some lace. :)

The inside of the card..
I hope  you like my card. I know I will be using much much more of Katie and the rest of the images from Stampinsanity :)

 I painted this wreath I picked up somewhere..and let it dry (for a really long time) and then wrapped some spiderwebby ribbon around it. Then I added my images from simplybettystamps I used Mina, James and Sally..


Then I added Henry from Stampinsanity to the mix.. I thought it needed more, of course.. so I added some skulls and ribbon.

Then I am also adding it into Simply Betty Challenges 3rd-day-of-halloween Sally challenge! Betty is awesome!! I colored Sally to kind of match my wreath..but still be "rag dollish" and I think she is adorable!!

Stampinsanity Devil Dolls Release/31 Days of Halloween day 7!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by.. This is kind of a long post..but it's pretty cool, if I do say so myself :)
I made the DT at Stampinsanity!!
I am thrilled to be a Groovy Gurl! I can't tell you how excited I am to be a part of this team! We are split up into two wards, one to play every other week..
Let's meet the Groovy Gurls, shall we?
Ward One:
Margie (DT coordinator)
and of course Me!

Ward two:

I get to help celebrate the release of these adorable new Devil Dolls available at Stampinsanity Shop
see how awesome they are?
Our challenge was to create either "Trick-it" or "Treat-it" I of course decided with "trick".. I made Lilith look a little naughty..although, she pretty much does that on her own :)
I colored Lilith and added some spiderweb ribbon, a couple prima flowers and some glittery brads.. Placed it all inside a little photo frame I painted black and "pearled" with some achohol ink to make it a little more elegant.

I think I may hang this in my scrap room :)
If you want to see more from the Grovy Gurls, go check them all out! The asylum is waiting on my sidebar!
If you want to play along, here's the info:

Stampinsanity/sisc30 trick-it-or-treat-it-and-devil-dolls

The challenge this week coincides with the release of the Devil Dolls digis.  Trick It… Or Treat It is our theme, brought to you by magnificent Margie Cortina! Naughty or Nice?  Sweet or Sour?  Create a Halloween card with a decidedly Tricky or Treaty feel!  Heck – add some candy treats, even! :)   This challenge is one for everyone!

Yo, Witch! 31 Days of Halloween day five!

Thanks so much for visiting again! Day five was kind of hectic, it was my dadio's birthday yesterday, so time was a bit tight for making Halloween goods..
I did manage to color and cut a new image I just got from Stampinsanity!!! I love this one!!
I added her to a chipboard tag I covered with purple starry paper,  and finished it off with some Batty ribbon and a glittery foam bat..
Simple, but cute I think :)

31 Days of Halloween Day four!

I painted and covered this wooden box I picked up at a thrift store. I ripped papers and "collaged" them but still didn't know what to do with it.. I added some painted pearls and it still seemed blah.

then I had an idea.. Make a little "show box" or what ever it's called lol...
I colored The Count and Countess from Simply Betty stamps, and popped them inside along with a moon, a couple tombstones and a creepy pumpkin..voila! A complete box.. :)

Hope you're enjoying the hop! We are having tons of fun!!
Make sure you are visiting all the blogs to find goodies throughout the whole month of October!
