Smeared & Smudged Meets The Greeting Farm for a Super Cool Blog Hop!

Quite a title huh? I am super stoked for this post today!!! One company that I totally love-The Greeting Farm- is hooking up with Smeared & Smudged today for an awesome Blog Hop!

This is the very first stop in the hop! You will be traveling to almost the entire S&S Design Team, and I promise you…you will be inspired!!! I have TWO cards to share with you…so let’s get started!


Say “Hello!” to Thursday! She is one of TGF’s Creepers and I gotta say, I love that whole collection! I am so pleased to get to work some magic on Ms. Thursday here…and I will need to add to my Creeper collection!


Here’s a close up. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger. I colored her in with my fabulous colored pencils. I had a grand ole time picking out the colors with Nix for this one! I think we rocked the colors out, don’t you???


I used a mess of different papers… I love to combine wacky patterns together and come out with something unexpected and cool. Check out the purple paper with the rain dots! It actually comes that way!

So I was so inspired by Thursday, that I just had to make another card for this Hop. Here’s my second card, using Mojo Monday’s latest sketch: #142.


I love this one! It’s a little bit darker…more in the realm of goth, which is so very me! There’s a lot going on with this card so you may just wanna see it bigger!


Coloring this chick is so much fun! I would totally wear this get-up! Yes, even the hat! I would rock it! ;}


You can see more of the elements I used in this pic. Staples, ribbon, border punch, etc. Do ya think it’s rad???

Now let’s get down to business. Over at Smeared & Smudged, you can win Thursday for yourself! how??? It’s really quite simple! Join our little group if you haven’t already, and play along with this month’s Rock N Rolla and/or Oh! The Horror Challenges. One person from each category will be randomly selected to win Thursday, courtesy of the super fabulous The Greeting Farm!!!

There’s another way to play along to…and it’s just for this hop! The Greeting Farm decided they wanted to do even more, so they are hosting their own little contest. Go through this entire blog hop, and leave a comment for our wonderful Design Team members. Once you’re done, leave a comment at The Greeting Farm’s bloggy. The addy is HERE. Once you do that, you have a chance to win there too! So many prizes, so little time! So let’s get hopping!!!

Your next stop is to my awesome-tastic friend and S&S Co-Captain, Kelli. And, just in case you need it, I have the entire hop list below. Happy Hopping! Have an inspiring day! BIG thanks to Jessica at The Greeting Farm for setting this hop up with me! It’s been a pleasure working with you!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
