Wicked Christmas with Smeared Ink

so. I messed up.
I was rushing to get my project done, and didn't check the smudgy antics site for the updated challenge..

I had "gothic christmas" as my project..
but it was changed..
eh well..
I managed to get a project done.. even if it doesn't fit.
It's been a rough few weeks for my family.
my youngest may have surgery this week or next..
we'll know more tomorrow.
so.. for me to be able to get a project done.. almost on time.. is a miracle!
and I have to be happy with that..
I will feel bad for a while for not following the exact challenge.. but I have to move on..


I used some gothic christmas images from smeared ink
and added them to a frame.
of course added some glitter n bling..:)
*please don't notice my screw up on holiday*

make sure you visit the smudgy antics blog to play along this week!

Steampunk with Smeared Ink

I had to share this little tag I made for this weeks smudgy antics challenge.

Weekly Challenge - Steampunk on the Darkside

This week's challenge will take a little bit of steam, but we KNOW you will be up for the challenge! I hope everybody on the Forum can play along. Heck, why not get a friend or two to play with us as well?

Here's a reminder about the rules:

*Each Monday morning a new challenge will be posted. It will contain that week's theme and prize information.

*To participate, you must make a project that fits the theme and add it to the post using the Inlinkz linky. Your link must take us directly to your project on a publicly accessible blog or website, or it will be disqualified - so please make sure you're linking to your actual post. It must be linked by midnight on the following Saturday, Pacific Time. This gives you six days to complete the challenge.

*Your project can be anything (card, scrapbook page, mixed media, altered or 3-D item, etc) as long as it is handmade and stamped somewhere with either a rubber or digital stamp. We have taken into consideration our digital artist fans and will be allowing all-digi projects. Feel free to think outside the box and have fun with your project! We are all about looking at things differently and look forward to the variety of projects and mediums we are sure to see.

*You may use any stamped image, however only projects using at least one Smeared Ink image will be eligible to win a prize. Encourage your crafty friends to come play with us!

*You can only enter and qualify for a prize if you are, or become, a follower of the blog. While you're at it, why not visit the forum as well for more challenges?

*The weekly winner will be chosen by random number and revealed on Sunday. Prizes will vary and may range from a free digi to a coupon to a blog badge.

thanks for stopping by!

** adding an extra card.. I made this one for the challenge, but didn't use a Smeared Ink image. der! It's been a long crazy week. I tell ya!
But I have to share it anyways..
