Like bees!!!

We always joke that our Citroen C1 is like a bee- whenever we park it it seems to send out an invisible scent that attracts other C1s-and here's a the proof!!
A little swarm of C1's (OK one is a Puggy version- the 107) and the queen Citroen in the middle!!!

Bombshell Hump Day HOP!!!

It's Bombshells HUMP day Blog hop for January 2012!!
Here is our Blog Hop Captain *salutes* Alison with your challenge...
"Greetings and Happy 2012! It's time to find out what the January Hump Day Hop will be! And, since it's a new year, I figured, what better challenge than to actually "Try Something New?" Make anything you want, as long as there is something "new" for you in it. Never made jewelry before? Give it a go! Never attempted a tri-fold card? Now is the perfect time! Perhaps you've never used pink with your Bombshells....why not experiment? Wow us with your experimentation! "

 Here's my project:

I created a 7x5" canvas representing the Story of America!
The challenge I set myself was to use stamped Bombshell images and NOT COLOUR them!!!! *gasps*
The second challenge I set myself (I was in an experimental frame of mind!) was to use clear shrink plastic for the first time:
I stamped Anchor Mermaid onto the shrink plastic and created a little hanging charm for my canvas!
I hope you like my take on Alison's Challenge!

Now here's the BLOG Roll so why not hop along to the next blog and see what Kathi has come up with!! Remember to play along via our BOMBSHELL BLOG for the chance to win lovely Bombshell goodies!!!

Bombshell's Miss January Challenge

This month's challenge is from the lovely Laura:

Hi! I'm very excited to be Ms. January and to bring you a challenge this month! :D My challenge is for you to either create a tag, or, to include a tag somewhere on your project.

I hope you can find the time to play along this month. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with

Challenge details are HERE and the projects by the rest of the DT can be seen on the BOMBSHELL BLOG here!!!

Here's my tag, I was channeling Tim Holtz for this one!

I clear embossed Mi Amor onto the manilla tag then rubbed various Distress Inks into the paper blending as I went. I spritzed with gold Perfect Pearl Mister for a bit of a glimmer!
I stamped the roses from the Dead Necessities set and inked three and stamped three onto text paper.
I stamped a butterfly from Butterfly Dreams and used a waterbrush and Distress Inks to colour it in.
The top banner is fromone of my most used Bombshell sets Love and Luck.

Now it's your turn!
If you've been inspired and fancy the chance to win some Bombshell goodies then hop over to our Blog to play along!!!

Happy Crafting!

Crafty Bear!

I made this lil chap for a wonderful friend of mine who's birthday it was recently!
He's based on an Emily Farmer Bear, Scooter but he's in lilac as my friend LOVES all things purple!
He's also a button loving crafter, just like his new owner!!

I hope you like him, I had fun making him!
Happy Crafting,
