This card I made here is for Melissa's Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge! Oh...and how fun is it that it's the #13 challenge??? LOL! Faith...well for me? I think so! :P I haven't made a "longer" card in a while so this sketch was perfect for that!
So to kick off the first day of October...here is a Halloweenie card! I omitted the sentiment and just decided to use the swirls...but all in all...you can tell it's the sketch...lol. Ohhhhh and I broke out this abandoned TAC Halloween set I bought from Joani last year I believe and hadn't inked! I don't even remember the name...lol. Yeah I'm awful I know!
Ok...I think I'll cut this one short! I'm on a serious candy rush! :S I don't know if you can tell the candy on the picture...well...I ate a whole bunch of those PLUS some M&M's! You can blame Joni for that! She'll know what I mean soon! ;) LMBO! Ok...now I'm gone! Have a great day!

The theme of this weeks blog hop was Pencil Me In! We are suppose to use pencils to color!!! *GASP* I am so bad with pencils but it was a nice change! I used my Reeves watercolor pencils to color this image. I also decided to do something challenging...make a CAS card! Yes...this IS CAS to me...lol! I wanted to pile more on but stopped myself before it got crazy!
Anywho...make sure to check out Bombshell Stamps! I can't stress enough how awesome the stamps are! Give them a try!
~In A Future Time~
But humanity never gets beyond the caterpillar stage--
it rots in the chrysalis, it never will have wings.
—D. H. Lawrence
and the stars--
how far we've come
on our dazzling chariots of thought--
Though at times some blood is spilled
to correct some intolerable Wrong,
our souls will become more pure,
as we aim toward a higher Good.
Yes, how far we've traveled
from our animal hearts
our earth-bound leash,
from the whispering grass
the dreaming coelacanth--
advancing toward another world
the worm softly singing in our ear.
out of the warm, dark ooze
into the clear, strong light--
time faithfully sliding forward
the universe pulsing in our radio telescopes--
Proud, emancipated, we worship tomorrow.

Here is the card that I created. I think I went punch crazy...lol...I think lately I've been going a bit crazy on 'X' embellishments. This card is gonna go to a secret sister on SCS...I wont go too much into it so I wont give it away...but I hope she likes it! I had been dying to ink this Miss Anya for a while now and found the perfect reason to. :D Finally this winter girl came to life! LV picked what color combo to use and I think she made the perfect choice!
Ok...so the punches/dies in this card are: snowflakes, swirls, border, & circles.
CS/DP: Bazill Bling (blue?), CChip, Bright White, vellum, & Winter DP (Oriental Trading)
Ink: Momento Black & Copics

These are the colors I use for the "black hair". N8, N6, N3, N1, & sometimes 0!
Pay no attention to the blonde...she was just a practice experiment. Once I have the blonde down...I'll post! ;) Next I'm trying a red-head and then on to the colorful hair. I'm excited for the colorful hair! :D
And that's it...that's how I color my shiny hair! All this is thanks to WickerPixie AKA Traci (the magnificent!) Thanks Traci for your amazing inspiration in my journey to coloring shiny hair! :D

Anywho...I don't have anything to post today as I was busy finishing up some cards and chilling with my fat boy Bubba who turned 1 in human years (15 in cat years). So needless to say my cards I did make are stuck in my camera and I'll be uploading until tonight when I get back from visiting my uncle who I haven't seen since my mom's funeral...yeah that long! I just hope it's not an awkard visit or a sad one at that.
I know I said I would have a winner for you tomorrow but I did the random thing and got one! The winner for the person who commented yesterday during the hop is:
