LEAP-ing Lasso - it's a blog hop Batman!!

OMG it has been TWO WEEKS since I have posted. ACK. I do have a good excuse. We had visitors from another country at work for two weeks and I was crazy busy not only during the days but also taking them out to eat almost every night. On the plus side I had a LOT of great food that was paid for by Work. WHOOP!

But that is not what we are here for! It is that time again... Time for the BOMBSHELL BLOG HOP. This time Alison, Our Blog QUEEN and massively creative hostess has challenged us to LEAP INTO ACTION. Yes... it is LEAP DAY!!! She wants our Bombshells to be heroes. There are all types of heroes. Everyday heroes, action heroes, quiet heroes... the sky is the limit. You should have arrived from Glittery Katie's AMAZING blog. If not, head on back to the Bombshell Blog to make sure you get all the Leapy goodness in.

Well my heroine leaps into action all the time.  With her invisible plane, and her lasso of truth, she is truly a Wonder Woman.

I cannot think of Wonder Woman without thinking of Lynda Carter's version.  We watched this religiously growing up - - my Dad really, REALLY liked Wonder Woman. I Wonder why??? HAHA.

To get the outfit on her, I took Bombshell Angel and masked out a bit of her hair and the flower in her hair to allow me to put the headpiece on, and a little bit of her shoes so I could draw the boots. I drew on the boots, headpiece, and armbands. Then I added the details of her outfit and a little bit more hair, cuz Wonder Woman back then had the Texas Big Hair thing going on! The background is simple cardstock that I cut out in the design, with punched stars. I have to admit my Absolute favorite part of the whole card is her mini lasso. HEE HEE.

Now why don't y'all Leap on over to Kickis Kaos blog and see what SUPER thing her Bombshells have leaped into.

Love - Hot Chocolate

Hey there all you people out there in blogland. Today I am here with my card for the Bombshell Monthly Challenge.

Glittery Katie is stepping in with our challenge this month. What goes through your mind when you think of love, maybe cherubs, chocolates music and whispering sweet nothings to your honey bun or perhaps something a little darker....broken hearts, tears and thoughts of sweet, sweet revenge

So here's my Valentine challenge to you this month, I want to see what's in your hearts the good AND the bad.
If you like sweet nothings- great but lets see a little bit of your dark side too!!!
If you like the dark side of love then sweeten it a little !
So go where your imagination takes you and lets see the YING and YANG of lurve!

So - I was thinking about this while I was watching Alton Brown's last show which was Dark Chocolate, and I thought Valentines day - Chocolate boxes.

Because I was a BAD BOMBSHELL and missed Kathi's Sketch Challenge post earlier this month I decided to combine the challenges. So for the  Chocolates I used Sacred Heart Art and stamped Hearts on squares of different shades of brown paper with different colored inks. I then used black lace and created a grid for the candy squares to lay in. This was all on the inside of the card. Once done, I folded the card over the top and figured out where to cut the opening for the box (all withing Kathi's sketch). I cut out the opening, and then had the lacey square over the top. I then used a sentiment from the Rose's Portrait set to complete the Valentines Chocolate Box.

I am entering these into the following challenges:

CCH# 106 Valentines Day - Obvious
Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge #61 Monochrome Magic  - Browns with one accent color
Cardmaking Mamas - Challenge 38 - Valentine - Obvious again
Colour Create - Challenge #89 - Light and Dark Browns with White and/or Cream  - Again - pretty Obvious

Hope to see you here again very soon.

Two cards - just not the one I was supposed to have done :-(

Hey all. It has been a crazy few days with me being sick, my little one being sick, work making me crazy! I have not posted much, but I do have two cards I finished over the weekend to share with you.

The first is a Stampavie stamp that I felt like coloring. I used a bunch of BVs and R8x and YGs and Gs... I know so specific of me... I just don't remember all the different colors. I thin close up my favorite part is the dotting I did on the green with the violets. If you also go close up, I attempted to make the Rose bottle look a little transparent... there is a slight tip of the leaf green you can see through the bottle. Just a bit.

The second card I did for Flourishes Release Week Challenge of B+W+1.

Obviously Red (R27 to be specific) was my +1. :-)

And the card I was supposed to do - maybe I will get it done tonight... Sorry Bombshells - I was a very bad girl this week... Naughty Naughty Alaine!  But, you should really head over and check out the Bombshell Stamps blog today to get in on the Sketch Challenge - the ladies have some really different takes on the sketch that Kathi provided today!

I hope to have some new cards for you soon. Have a great week!
