I’m back!!   Sorry for the brief absence yesterday. was upgrading our blog servers, so if you missed my Autumn Mosaic blog hop post, you can find it HERE, on the There She Goes blog.

This is day 3 of our September release blog hops.   If you’ve arrived here from Corinna’s blog, then you are going in the right direction!  If not, you will want to hop back to the There She Goes blog in order to get instructions on how YOU could possibly win one of these new sets!

I’m going to get right to it.   My first sample, from the new You’re A Hoot set is right here……

I’m going to admit right off the bat… Owls are not real high on my favorites list, but I had such a blast making this card that they’ve now moved way up!

Here are my deets:

Stamps: There She Goes’ You’re A Hoot

Colors: River Rock, Taken with Teal, GP White, DCWV dps

Ink: Certainly Celery and Soft Suede (for sponging), Copics

Accessories:  5/8″ polka dot grosgrain, 1/2 pearls, glossy glaze, eyelet border punch, circle punches, sewing machine (faux stitching), mosaic embossing folder, sponges


ETA:   You can now download Vlad’s Lair (dungeon with wood floor) on the TSG blog HERE.

My next sample is from the Hauntingly Delightful set.  *LOVE*!!!   In case you didn’t catch it the other day, Jessica gave me special permission to use this set for this week’s Technique Lovers Challenge on SCS.   Our challenge was tags.  This is what I made:

Oh, but wait.  I didn’t stop there.    You see, I have a theory.   THIS vampire, I call him Vlad, is a REAL vampire.  Now I know a lot of you are Twi-hards, so this may ruffle your sparkling feathers….. but Vlad would kick Edward’s butt!  Team Vlad!!   So, my little toothy friend needed a home….

Velcome, to Vlad’s Lair.  The dungeon wall was created in MS Paint and I’ve saved it to a word doc.  It will be available later this week on the TSG website.   Vlad, as you can see, is sending a message to Edward…….”Bite Me”!

Here are my deets:

Stamps:  There She Goes’ Hauntingly Delightful & HSH Halloween Additions

Colors: GP White, Basic Black, Lovely Lilac, flocked spider web paper (maker unknown), acetate

Ink: Copics, black sharpie

Accessories: 1/2″ printed ribbon, dimensionals, sticky tape, drippy goo punch, crystal effects, 1/2 pearls


Don’t forget… There She Goes is having a Change of the Season sale right now, too!


Now it’s time to send you HOPPIN’!   Head on over to Iwona’s blog.   You can bet she will WOW you!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you’ll stop by again!
