Ike's World Challenges Week 2

One more week to get your hilarious entries into this Challenge #31 - Make Us Laugh at Ike's World Challenges.
Team B is up for this Week 2 reminder and inspiration.  Please see what my wonderful teamies have created for you...funny stuff!

I have made a card using a handsome image from Ike's Art called Night Stranger.  I saw this quote on Pinterest and had to laugh because I have mini-van, but not the stick figures.  It cracked me up and so inspired my card.

Smudgy Antics Catch Up! A Day Late Valentine

Sunday was my day to post my project for the Smudgy Antics challenge blog.  Now we had Friday the 13th, then Saturday - Valentine's Day, so what better way to end the weekend with 'a day late valentine'.

I have made a card that features a lovely little friend from the Smeared Ink digital set called Monster Hearts.

Ike's World Challenges Updates!

Last week totally got away from me.  I have 3 boys and they are all in Cub Scouts.  The Scouts celebrated Blue & Gold (Boy Scouts Birthday) and was super busy getting all things done for Friday.  Then had to rest a bit this weekend and back to the "normal weekly schedule".

So I missed a couple of posts that I wanted to get in last week.  First I have an amazing New Release Blog Hop for the digi set called Sea Life (12 piece set) done by some of my wonderful teamies over at Ike's World Challenges.

How awesome is this set?  Below will be a list of the projects dedicated to this new digi set that you can find at Ike's Art.

Second, is that there is a new challenge at Ike's World Challenges that has started today!  It is Challenge #31 - Make Us Laugh.  
Your entry must have some humor to it and if you used an Ike's Art image, you will be entered into the prize draw twice!  And Ike even gives you a FREEBIE with each challenge.  So nice!  So get your over to Ike's World Challenges and see what is going on, leave the DT some love, and enter for a chance to win some great prizes!

Haunted Design House Februray Challenge

Its a 'Love / Hate Thing' for this months challenge at the Haunted Design House Macabre Monday challenge blog.

You do have all month long to get those projects in and they pretty much accept anything.  Anything being twisted, dark, and soooo unconventional.

Be sure to leave those minions some love/hate as well for the mind numbing projects that they create.

If you do not know, I am an American Horror Story stalker.  This year has been AAAAmazing and of course now must create!  Thank you Smeared Ink for this wonderful image of  Meep The Geek from a series of images titled Carnival De La Nuit. 

Step Right Up for these Deets

Background was an image found on Google of the circle front from the show. 
Altered image with my Picasso and printed out onto Very Vanilla card stock.
Markers to highlight words and to color in various areas.
Sponged around distressed edges.

Words were altered in Word using Matisse ILC font and printed out.
Cut, sponged, and adhered to page.

Meep was printed onto Whisper White card stock.
