Smudgy Antics DT Project and QTR Challenge

I have combined my project to day that is my DT daily inspiration for the Smudgy Antics blog and the wonderous blog called Quoth The Raven, Nevermore Challenge Blog.  QTR main focus is Edgar Allan Poe and all things Poe. 

You can join and play on each blog also!  I have used the Smeared Ink rubber stamp set Quoth the Raven to make chipboard magnetic book marks.

Smudgy Antics and QTR are both month long challenges and this month Anything Goes on both as well.  Plenty of time for you to get creative and win some prizes!
