Thanks for popping in today - hopefully you enjoy another Bombshell Hop! Today's theme was 'She's a Firecracker, Alright!' - and to play along, we wanted to see something that is at least one of these things:
- red, white & blue
- Firecrackers (Bombshell Pin-Ups, for example)
- Military themed, or
- Sparkling like a firecracker!
Gee, bet you can't guess what I went with!
Why, sparkles, of course! I guess blue, white & pink kind of fits, too - it's close enough to red! =) Mermaid Treasure & I thought so, anyway!
I did the unthinkable (for me) with this card - I did what the card wanted, and not what was logical. What am I ever going to do with a card that says 'looking for my prince'?! For one thing, I've already got mine!
Anyway, I've babbled enough - you better run along & check out the rest of the hop!

Thanks for popping in - I've got another PWCO Super Saturday post to share with you!
Today, I focused on CardPatterns Sketch #74 and JilliBean Soup papers - which can now be found in the PWCO store for 40% off!! Also, I was inspired to use the bird paper by Oh, Alice; they wanted to see birds on your project this week!
Please take a moment to swing by the PWCO blog & check out the other two posts there for today - you'll be glad you did!

Hopefully you've arrived here from Jenny's wonderful little piece of the Blogosphere; if you've just popped in to visit me, you're definitely going to be missing out if you don't head to the PaperWorks Co blog and hop along!
Today, I've got "A New Adventure" to share with you:
Ain't she the cutest?! She's coloured using Copics, and there is a smattering of Stickles on the fruit in the tree & surrounding the image panel (a la Cheryl - I LOVE how she does that & have totally "adopted" the practice!), as well as Glossy Accents on her bike. How sweet is the little kitten in her basket?! You could click on the photo to make it bigger.... but if you do that, please pay no attention to my dirty windows!!! (LOL!) (And yes... I realize the image panel should probably be a little more to the right... but I was really getting grumpy with how much it hid the pretty papers...and so, it is what it is.) <--said, of course, in my best 'neener, neener' voice...
The papers are all from PWCO - Prismatics cardstock & 3 Bugs in a Rug patterned paper - when you're buying your new stamps here, you should check out the SALE PAGES here and see what other goodies you can load up on - there's everything from patterned paper, ink & cardstock to Glimmer Mist, brads & alterable albums!!!! (What? You think I WOULDN'T pass on a 40% off sale?!) BONUS - there's also 10% off ALL PWCO stamps from now until July 19 - that includes the new ones released today - just make sure to use this code at checkout: "PWCO stamps"!!!!
And.... I was thinking, this card was a little boring... so I snuck in some time this morning to move the image panel further to the right, and to add a couple flowers from my stash... there - much better! =)
Now.... you should be off to check out Karen Lynn's creation(s) to totally overdose on awesomeness!!!
PS - in case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop list:

So I had a chance to play along with another Oh, Alice challenge - yay!!!!!! This time, you were to start out with this sketch:
And re-create it somehow, with some sort of change!
So... I switched the orientation of the triangular panels (from Basic Grey's Euphoria collection - which happens to be 40% off at PWCO right now!!), used Chanter Heartsong on an angle, framed by some yummy Washi tape, and a trio of random flowers from my stash... Chanter is coloured with Copics & I added some Stickles to her skirt and Glossy Accents to her wings, purple-bubble-thingers-on-the-bottom-of-her-skirt & her shoes.
That's it for me today, folks.... but be sure to pop in on Saturday at 10:00AM CST for PWCO's latest release - it's Round 2 with the awesome Rachelle Anne Miller!!! (And there are free stamps to be won....yay!!!)

Anyway... the final challenge was a photo inspiration challenge, and I ran with the colours...Supplies are mostly from PWCO; see the post over there for those deets!

Look, look, look - challenges! I might be kicking the mojo out the door in saying this, but I think I might be regaining enough of a balance in my life to start playing along with various challenges again! (YAY!!)
Today, I bring you Mojo Monday's Sketch #146 combined with Oh, Alice's Chapter 20: In My Country - a colour challenge to use Red, White & Blue... of course, me being me, I couldn't just leave it at that & had to add in some black, but that's beside the point! =D
The little hearts & stripe on Just A Girl's dress are red, as is the heart in her hair & the hearts on her boots, with a touch of Stickles over top for some added shine. You can't really see it, but the red strips are embossed with Cuttlebug's heart folder. I picked up the rhinestone border at the dollar store... and the various flowers & heart-shaped brad (also covered in Stickles) are from my stash. I have no idea what any of the papers are; they came out of the scrap bags.
Well, folks... that's all I've got today... hopefully I'll have time this evening to more crafting done! See you Saturday for sure, over at the PaperWorks Co. blog! =D

Welcome to a special edition Bombshell hop! Us DT girls thought we'd get together & create some ATCs for a DT-only swap, using our fave Bombshell stamp. The main attraction here is that eventually, I'm going to take one of each & create a special little Bombshell black book for our head hottie, Shannon! (Psst - forget you just read that, Shannon... LOL!)
Anyway, my fave is definitely Cherry Bomb... and when I asked Scott & Emily which of my Bombshells they thought was most 'me' that's who they chose. (Awwww.... lol!) This little hunny is coloured up with Copics & Smooch (Pink Taffy) on her outfit, shoes & cherry (and on this one in particular, her lips. Looks like crap; didn't do it on the others!). Behind her is some of the waxed paper that I usually put on my work surface when spraying things with Glimmer Mist... but this one also includes a bunch of Smooch Spritz & Shimmerz Spritz, all in various colours. The base of the ATC is also spritzed with the same wacky concoction of spritzes/mists... and I added a few nail gems (got a zillion off EvilBay forever ago; this link is just to show what I used, it's not where I bought them) on the top right-hand side of the black layer, as well as in the centre of her flower.
Oh yes, and I wanted to say a quick thanks to all who participated - all of the ATCs look awesome! Mine have gone into THIS totally kick-ass tin our DT Captain Kathi made just for me - SUPER thanks, Kathi!!!!! (Said in my best childish voice: *neener, neener, I got pretties made just for me, and you didn't*....LMAO!)
And now that you've (hopefully) been inspired, head on off to check out what the other chickies were up to - lots of yumminess to see!
