Smudgy Antics October challenge - Anything Goes with a twist

Time for Octobers challenge at Smudgy Antics and as usual Anything Goes, there is a twist this time too and that is Ghosts and Ghouls! =)

As always, you have to use a Smeared Ink stamp to join this challenge, rubber or digital! =)

Now to the fun part, I used one of the new digis called Sorrow for my card and was inspired by a book I recently read. It's called Anna dressed in blood by Kendare Blake!

I colored Sorrow, as a ghost, in gray tones and added red for the eyes, tears and lips. Cut her out from the white paper and added her to a background with spiderwebb. Then added another red patterend paper just behind the spiderwebb, to make it stand out a little more. For the cardbase I used a black cs and then just a few small half pearls as a the final touch. 

Hope you will like our new challenge and come and join in! =)

Smudgy Antics Midway reminder post for Septembers challenge

Midway reminder for our challenge at Smudgy Antics, theme "Anything goes" with the optional twist "Feeling a Lil' Grumpie". =)

I made a card with one of the new images, she's fabulous, just lost her head a little and she's called "Headless". =) I matched her with a Lil' Grumpie quote!

I colored her with my promarkers, added some highlights with my white pen and think she turned out great, for another time I will add more shine to the blood on her neck. =)

Dragonfly Dreams -September challenge "Feminine"

Time for a new challenge at Dragonfly Dreams and our sponsor this time are Sweet Pea Stamps!
The theme are "Feminine" and I choose to work with this lovely girl "Exotic October".

She's colored with my trusty promarkers and I used some matching papers I had in my stash. Also found a piece of lace and that completed the card. The image is raised up on 3D pillows and I'm happy with how it turned out. =)

After this card I'm on a break from the DT, being back at work full time, still nursing and spending time with my family is more important right now. 

Hope you will enjoy this challenge and enter with lovely creations! =)

Smeared Ink is back and here are the new challenge + hop for September

Smeared Ink is back again and to celebrate that we are having a blog hop here at Smudgy Antics! =)

I wanted to make something fun so used three dancing skeletons for my card, colored them and then added crackle accent on them for a more cracked look. Cut them out and added them to the card with just a little glue so that the limbs looks like they are moving. =)
Used a Christmas paper with party lights on it for the background + a Grumpie quote and a text I came up with. =) "what are you looking at." are the Grumpie quote and "haven't you seen skeletons dance before?" are my invention.

So hope you will like this festive card and join us on this new challenge "Anything goes" with the optional twist this month which is "Feeling a little grumpy". =) Just remember to use a Smeared Ink image, rubber stamp or digital stamp!

The blog roll for the hop is here below, so get hopping! =)

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:

Första dagen på jobbet efter mammaledighet nr.1

Tillbaka på jobbet efter att ha varit hemma i nästan 7,5 månad med Allan, kändes lite udda att fara hemifrån imorse utan att han var med. Det har dock gått bra och vi har en ganska lugn vecka så lite mjukstart är alltid bra. 
Allt har gått bra här hemma också, så det är skönt, de har haft fullt upp nu när mannen är pappaledig, på onsdag ska de gå på babysim också, så hoppas det går bra.

Varit på möte på lassa idag, pappa åkte in akut förra måndagen med en stroke, dock så har han blivit piggare men har mycket träning kvar att göra innan han kan gå och röra sig utan stöd. Tur att en bekant till honom såg hur det var fatt och skickade in honom hit med ambulans i tid. 
Så det har varit lite fullt upp nu, även tränat Allan i att bara amma endast morgon och em/kväll under hela förra veckan, så att omställning till att jag börjat jobba ska gå smidigare och det funkar rätt bra. Endast jag som måste pumpa en gång på dagen annars blir det för jobbigt för mig, men det går hyfsat bra än så länge.

Dax att sova så att jag är mer vaken imorgon på jobbet, har lite möten som vi ska gå på.

Time for a new challenge at Dragonfly Dreams and this month's theme are "Must have wings"!
