September Bombshell Blog Hop!!!

Let's hear it for the Girls!!

Last month, it was all about the boys...well this month, in anticipation of October, the theme is "Let's Hear it for the Girls!" This theme is a little more specific then last month's though. I want you to create a card or project that could be sent to someone during October, which is (here in the States), Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So let's all Think Pink!

You can go with a pink card, Girl Power, use the infamous pink ribbon symbol, etc. But we want to worship those ladies that are fighting (or have fought) for their lives.

I want to celebrate those who are fighting against this horrible disease. So for those who are in the midst of the battle, keep fighting!

I used:
Banner Sayings Bombshell Stamp set
Panther Tattoo Bombshell Stamp Set
Distress Inks; Pickled Raspberry and Dusty Concord
Copic Ciao Pens
Seam Binding coloured with Distress Inks
Crafters Workshop Template and molding paste
Hero Arts alphabet stamps

Now hop along to the gorgeous Torrey to see her project!
Remember to play along with us and leave a comment on our blogs for a chance to win Bombshell goodies!!

Happy Crafting!

Seemed rude not to....

Tim Holtz's new On the Edge Sizzix die- can't wait for it to arrive!!

Can't wait for it to arrive after all it's not long until HALLOWEEN!!! Yeah!

After oggling Tattered Angel Mists for yonks I invested in a lovely selection!!
I also bought another couple of Crafter's Workshop Template's to squirt with my lovely Mists as well as using them with moulding paste- which is a fab technique!! You know I'm going to HAVE to buy the Flames template after seeing Kathi's awesome tut on the Bombshell Blog- did you see it...gorgeous?!

Ooh yes and I bought the Tim Holtz Summer limited edition Distress Inks - they are bright but I love them!!

Oh and I wasn't the only one who loved the Glimmer Mists...a certain Miss Willow took a liking to them too!!!

Happy Crafting!
