Yo! I’ve Got Some News!

Did my title grab your attention? It’s actually a twofer. “Yo!” is the name of my card…and I really do have some news…some really cool news! And Goddess knows I need that! Let’s start with the news!!!

1. I one of the Gruesome Twosome for Macabre Monday #59…Dastardly Delicious Doodles!!!

2. Not only was I one of the Gruesome Twosome…but…drum roll please…I am now the October 2010 Master of the Macabre!!! Have you any idea how stoked I am?!? This is a very coveted award for me. I have hoped for it for many moons…and I can now proudly display my Master of the Macabre Badge for all the world to see! Just look!!! ------------------------------------------------------->  It’s on my sidebar!!! Thanks, Barb!!!

3. Have you noticed another new badge that I am proudly displaying??? I have been published! Yes! I have been published FOUR times in the latest issue of Scrapbook News and Review! FOUR! Four layouts! I can hardly believe it myself!

4. I won some fabulous Blog Candy from Ever After Paper Crafts!!! I won four gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamps…and you all know I can’t get enough of those!!! Thank you, Christine!

Great stuff huh??? I definitely have some folks smiling down on me! :} Now for my card!


My focal image is this month’s freebie from Kenny K. Isn’t she cute??? Go and nab her for yourself! All of the phrases are from Smeared Ink’s Teen Style Sayings collection. I was inspired by the bricks she was sitting on… so I embossed some bricks using a Fiskars Texture Plate. Then I inked it a bit with Frost White so that the embossing shows.


I stamped the 2 background phrases using fairly bright colors…but they got a bit lost on the dark background. So, I heat embossed them. But I still wasn’t happy with how the “rad” didn’t show too much, so I went over it a bit with a Glaze Pen.


It looks way better now. And I think the wall came out pretty cool! Here’s a close up of my Kenny K chick.


And look! I made her a blonde! No wacky colors in her hair!!! Of course the rest of her practically glows in the dark, but I think she’s adorable.

That’s all for now. Have an inspiring day!
