Bombshell Hump Day Hop!!

Hello! It's Hump Day which means it's the Bombshell Blog HOP for March!
The weather has been bad here in the UK with no sign of Spring yet so I've had a great excuse to hide away behind my craft desk and get inky!

Alison has a great challenge for us this month- I hope you want to play along remember to visit the Bombshell Blog for details- there's a Bombshell Stamp set of your choice up for grabs!

"Hello! It's time to announce the March Hump Day Hop Theme! The theme is "Stencil It In!" This month, I'd like like for you to use a stencil and your Bombshell stamps to create a project. Don't have any stencils? Create your own by free-hand cutting, die cutting, or punching an opening in cardstock or acetate and use the negative space as a stencil! Just look around your home...I'm sure you have all sorts of cool items that can be used as a stencil." 

So here's my project:

I used Cherry Bomb , Classic Tattoo , & Dead Necessities Bombshell Stamp Sets.
Various Crafters Workshop Stencils which I used with modelling paste and spray inks.
Grungeboard letters, star and arrow covered in old book pages
Paper rose, Distress Inks and Glimmer Mists.

I hope you enjoy my project- I'll be posting a tutorial for it in a few days on the Bombshell Blog just to show you the stages it went through!

Now hop along to Kathi's Blog!!

Crochet Stash!

I've long admired the hookings of the wonderful Anita Mundt so I was delighted when she announced she was doing a yarn kit as i LOVE her colour choices!
Well my yummy yarn has arrived

and the photo doesn't really do the colours justice, I haven't included the white yarn!

So I trotted off to Lucy's blog Attic24 to get the 'how to' for a hex blankie and I've made a start- just a small start!

Watch this space!
Happy Crafting!
