Bombshell Blog Hop and Day 27 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to the latest installment of the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Blog Hop! You should be coming from Alaine’s Blog. If not, please start at the brand spankin’ new Bombshell Stamps Blog! Here’s Kas’ challenge:

OK, this has got to be the easiest Bombshell Bloghop to join in on!!
Halloween and/or Day of the Dead.
If you have a Bombshell have no excuse.
I don't care if it's name it
It just has to be Halloween!

Super simple! And of course, this also works for the 31 Days of Halloween!


I broke out my gorgeous Butterfly Queen set and went to town. Isn’t she regal in purple?


My Queen is colored with my colored pencils. The wings were done with ink. I added some Stickles to some key areas as well. I topped her off with a faboo mask (Sassy Studios)…thanks, Lyss!!! But I couldn’t hide her pretty face, so she’s wearing it on her head until she arrives at her party.


For some reason, it’s tough to see in my photos, but on the plain cardstock, I stamped the diamond that is also in this set all over. You can kinda see it…but it’s much more visible in real life. You can click on any of my photos to see them bigger.


Here you can see all of the Stickles. She is SO ready to party!!! I added “I’m the Treat…” to the card to because…well…just look at her! No tricks up her sleeves! ;}

Well Hump Day Hoppers, it’s now time to move along to the amazingly talented Cheryl. But I invite you to also check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers for the 31 Days of Halloween. They are all listed on my sidebar. You won’t be sorry! These chicks are all incredible! Have fun hopping!!!
