31 Days of Halloween - Day 31 and Bombshell Hop!!!

CAW! CAW!!  Halloween is HERE, Halloween is HERE!  Can you believe it?  31 days later and Alex and I are both alive, no worse for the wear.  Of course, when you start off where Alex did, there isn't much that can go anyway.
Today is a fabulous day.  Not only is it Halloween and the last of the 31 Days of Halloween Hop.  It is also the Bombshell Stamps monthly hop.  Big day!!! If you are Bombshell Hopping you should have come from Susie's blog.  If not, the beginning is at the Bombshell Blog with a full list. 

The Bombshell Hop challenge this month was to go black and white.  Alex took this one seriously 100% and there is no other color (unless you want to get all picky about grey, but take that drama elsewhere please).  The image is Angel with the Halloween Costume digi set.  Doesn't she make and amazing Mrs. Frankenstein?  I think she rocks that hair!

I know you are all very curious as to the finale of my tail adventures.  I think we have possibly saved the best for last.  What do you think?  I am feeling quite 'proud' caw, caw!  I crack myself up!
Although this might be my favorite look for impressing the ladies, not that I ever have to try very hard, I think I will keep some of the other 'looks' in the rotation.

Now, hop along to the rest of the Bombshell - your next stop is Torrey's blog with the full list here or below, as well as the Wicked Bloggers for the final of the 31 Days.  You will me amazing, inspired and awestruck!

Happy Halloween!!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 30

Happy Halloween Eve!!!  CAW!! CAW!!!!  It is almost the day we have been waiting for!~  Hope you are ready.
Alex created a card today using an image by Kraftin' Kimmie.  I think the best part is the dancing skeleton in the corner.  Alex thinks it is the paper.  We hope you have enjoyed all of Alex's creations this month and look forward to seeing you again tomorrow!  I can hardly believe this month is almost finished.  No worries though, Alex and I are 'in negotiations' regarding my future gigs and access to life outside my cage.  Cross your fingers for me!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 29

OY- Alex is getting a bit creative with these color combinations.  I am not certain that we are going to find something acceptable or appropriate in the next 2 days.  Hope we do, but not holding my breath.
This tag is a combination of several different stamps and then Alex drew in the sidewalk to help ground the little monster.  The boy trick-or-treating reminded Alex of Max from Where the Wild Things Are so it was another of the must have stamps.  Me, I am hoping that he has some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in that bag.  It is time for a sugar fix.

Happy Halloween

31 Days of Halloween - Day 28

 Today I am going for the multiple oranges.  Feeling very 'fallish' and not wanting the Halloween season to end.  I think that here at Alex's house, we are going to have a Halloween Feast instead of Thanksgiving.  That way Halloween can go on for four more weeks.  What do you think?  Should we start a movement?
There is certainly some pouting similar to this Pumpkin Pixie by Katerina Koukiotiss for Sweet Pea Stamps.  Alex doesn't look this cute when she pouts, but she is pouting all the same.  You don't need to pout though, unless it is over Halloween and as you read, we are working on that.  Sweet Pea Stamps extended their sale through Monday so hurry over and stock up!  The details are on the Sweet Pea Blog and below.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 27

Happy Day 27!!  Where has this month gone?  I really do not want this month to end.  Not at all.  There is a cage awaiting me.  I might have to start a 'Save Edgar' campaign.  Hmmmmmm

Alex has another tag for us today.  This image is by Inkadinkado and one she had her eye on at a local scrapbooking store for several months.  She held off buying it and held off and held off.  She would look at it and pet it and wish for it when it the store, but put it back on the shelf.  A couple of weeks ago she was at the store with a % off coupon and there was only one of these left on the shelf.  Obviously, home with Alex it came.  I believe it was a wise choice, but don't tell her I said that!

I hope you enjoyed both hops yesterday and were inspired by all the talent.  On to more of the Wicked Bloggers today!

Happy Halloween!

Hey good lookin'!  Whacha got cookin'?!  CAW! CAW!!  So, so, so excited.  I want to welcome the 31 Days of Halloween Horrifying Hoppers AND those following the SCACD Spook-a-licious Hop!  Alex has something silly, fun and a bit twisted, no surprise with that one, to share.

Alex used the image Some Days from the Oddly Sweet Curiosities Set #2.  The background paper is some she grabbed from the MME Lost and Found Halloween collection.  She placed the Crafters Workshop Aspen Trees stencil on and it inked it lightly for the shadows.  The moon is cut from the Dies by SCACD Sun and Moon Corner.  It is then painted with Honey Amber Silks for a beautiful shine. 

Today we are having a Spook-a-licious fun blog hop with stamps and dies from SCACD!!! We invite you to hop along with us for some spooky inspiration! To add to the fun there is Blog Candy available on the SCACD store blog --2 FUN prizes-- and also another different Blog Candy at Quixotic Paperie store blog!

You can find all the stamps HERE--if you are in the USA, and HERE- for our International friends. The Dies by SCACD can be found HERE--if you are in the USA and HERE-for our International friends!! Happy hopping and shopping!!

For those of you on the Spook-a-licious Hop, hopefully you arrived here from Amanda's BLOG and your next stop is Kathi's BLOG.  If you aren't participating in the Spook-a-licious Hop, you should!  Did you see the prizes?  Plus, more inspiration for you!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 25

Good day, good day, good day.  I hope there is lovely weather where you are.  Here, not so much.  My feathers are getting a bit damp and I am not pleased.
It is a good thing that Alex has something cheerful for us today, well relatively cheerful.  Look how happy this Sally is to see those lovely spiders.  What a gal.  I am pretty certain this entire creation was an excuse to use the Jack Skellington ribbon Alex has, but since she pulled it off, who am I to complain?  Once less thing to go flying through the air and watch out for.

Hope your day is warm, dry and full of sunshine!  See you tomorrow and I will have an extra surprise for you then!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 24

Oh my, oh my, oh my!! Caw, caw, caw, caw, caw!  Look at this sexy lady.  Wow.  Alex found this image, Mistress Vampyra by Rick St. Dennis and knew she had to play with it.  This lady is just so hot and mystical.  Woot Woo!!

The black on her dress and shoes were colored using one of the Copic glitter pens in black.  The detail of the sparkle is what let her to the sparkle ribbon.  I hope you click on the picture for the larger version so you can appreciate all the details.  Especially in the image itself.  Alex had no choice but to wear her 'cheaters' when coloring this one, caw, caw! The background paper is from the EP Chillingsworth Manor collection.  Alex loved the way it reminded her of wallpaper in a gothic mansion.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 23

 Hello, come in and please, help settle a debate.  With today's project, a topic came up that Alex and I are debating.  It is with regard to vampires and 'breaking the rules'.  Alex is a firm believer that there are certain vampire 'rules' that are not to be broken.  PERIOD.  Some vary by lore, but there are certain consistencies that must be honored (um NO they can't be in the sunlight even if they do sparkle).  I figure since it is all pretend anyway there are really no rules.  What do you think?
Now, on to the project that started it all.  A vampire skull.  How fabulous!!!  I really like the way Alex used the amazing gorgeous and sexy raven sticker.  She then used the Viva Decor glitter liner in Hematite to fill in the eyes and the blood pool is her Viva Decor Pearl pen in Red.  It really is the BEST for blood she has found.

Alex asked that I also leave you with a picture of one of the sexiest vampires ever (trust me, when she asked my eyes rolled back in my head so far they almost popped out the back side!)

31 Days of Halloween - Day 22

 Day 22, and I am rocking the matching tail today.  I thought to myself, "Edgar, you are one HOT raven.  You should be working the multiple tail look and going all matchy matchy."  There may be a follow up discussion, but for now, I think I am pretty smart. 
This image is one by Teresa Sherman and Alex has always enjoyed it.  The bat hair adornment and skull belly button jewel just make this complete. 

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 21

 Welcome to day 21.  Only 10 more days until 30 Days of Halloween is over and Halloween is actually here!  I am excited, and a bit sad.  I know that Alex will be locking me up in that cage again.  Thank you all for the compliments on my pink yumminess.  I know I am irresistible regardless, but it is nice to know that now I am super irresistible.  I have a few more looks to try before the end so I guess I better get busy!
This lovely tag is Alex's latest offering for 31 Days.  Not only does she love the scene, but the witch flying through the sky is her favorite part.  I am pretty certain this is an image she will ink up more than once.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 20

 Welcome to Day 20!!  As requested by some of my adoring fans, I am sporting a pink tail.  There was much arguing discussion here as to what color pink, so the multi look won out.  Pretty hot don't you think?
 Unfortunately, we had a few struggles in wardrobe, but I think it has all been resolved for now.
Today I get to share a card Alex made using the image Salting Slugs by Terra Bidlespacher for Sweet Pea Stamps.  Once again, I heard the cackling as Alex grabbed the drippy goo punch to go with slugs.  That woman is a
Speaking of Sweet Pea Stamps, they are having a sale, big one, huge!  Through Monday, October 22 you get a $6 store voucher when you purchase 10 digi stamps.  There is also 30% off all rubber stamps (Alex's favorite) AND grab bags (no additional discount).   You should check it out when you finishing visiting all of the Wicked Bloggers

31 Days of Halloween - Day 19

 Hello all you Horrifying Hoppers!  How are you on this fine Friday?  Me, FABULOUS.  I know you are thrilled to hear it and wondering why.  Well, Alex is slowly returning to her crazy normal self so I can go back to doing all the things I do best and not deal with worry about her.
Today Alex has me sharing a tag she put together using a stamp with a very handsome raven on it.  Personally, I am having a case of hat and tail envy, but will get over it, even if it means I need to go shopping.  I would tell you who this stamp is by, but Alex can't remember (big surprise there, not!) and I am not going to fly over and look at the moment.  Perhaps later and then I will edit this if I do.  The background and image are done using distress inks and a sponge or the Tim Holtz water brush.  I know that Alex has fallen in love with this brush and the way she can control the water amounts.  You are just lucky you don't have to hear the actually swooning, I can just tell you about it.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 18

Oh do I have a treat for you today!!!!  I get to share a gorgeous new image by Joanne Schempp for Sweet Pea Stamps called Precious Advice.
Didn't Alex do a lovely job with it?  If you look closely, Alex colored the clothing a bit differently than the artist, but I told her not to worry, it works just fine.  What do you think?  Great news too, this is one of the newly available digi stamps at Sweet Pea Stamps - be certain to check them all out!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 17

Welcome all to Day 17.  This might not seem like a very big deal, but it is.  Today is the day that the Bombshell Ms October challenge is set forth and Alex is Ms. October!
The challenge for this month is to Bling up your Bombshell in Halloween color bling, so black, orange, purple and green.  Alex used the Bombshell Sugar Skulls set and stickles.  Lots and lots of stickles.  She is particularly proud of the gold teeth.

Gotta run and take care of the sickie here.  Hoping she is up to speed tomorrow because this being nice thing is a bit difficult and wearing thin.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 16

Hello everyone!  Short and sweet today.  Alex is a bit under the weather and I need to care for her (but don't tell anyone, you'll ruin my bad boy image).  However, I did want to be certain and share this appropriately themed tag with you.

Isn't that image a hoot?  A friend of Alex's found that stamp and knew it was something she would love.  Just fabulous!!!  We can chat more tomorrow!!!

Alex is entering this into the HDH Macabre Monday Challenge #155 - RIP

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 15

 Thank you all sooooooooo much!  Due to your requests I am sporting a new look.  This one is bright green, but mostly I love how long it is.  So fancy and full.  Not certain if the color will be ok, but going to give it a shot.
Alex really is still very excited about being the Bombshell Stamps Pin-Up for October.  So much that she was able to incorporate the Bombshell Stamps Oct. Sketch Challenge in with her 31 Days projects.  She used the wonderful A Pirate's Life set.  Even better, she is ordering the Holiday Accessory set for her Bombshell Stamps.  Look at the witch's hat and broom.  Too bad she didn't have it already, but that would have required brains planning.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 14

Good day, good day, good day.  Before I share today's lovely creation I would like to address the topic of my tail.  As you can see, Alex has left me with this ghetto creation for way, way, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too long.  I have been promised another option shortly, but she is so busy attempting to video some things, (technology is clearly not her strength) I am not certain she will remember.  So, if you could all put in a good word for me, I would appreciate it.  Thank you.

This beautiful image is from Sweet Pea Stamps.  It is titled Gothic Moon and the artist is Rebecca Sinz.  This was one of those creations that, once Alex colored the image, just came together on its own.  The scroll in the top left corner was made using the Mini Lace 1st Impression mold.  

Enjoy the rest of the creations by the Wicked Bloggers today.  Don't forget, there are things to WIN!  Visit Terra's blog for the details if you have forgotten.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 13

 Oh my goodness, you are not going to believe what I get to share with you today.  Alex is over the moon!!  She found ZOMBIE MERMAID STAMPS.  Yep- for real- CAW CAW!
These three lovely ladies are Stampotique images she purchased from SCACD.  I don't think I have ever seen her ink up stamps as quickly as she did these, and I mean ever! (of course, I am in a cage most of the year)  She gave these gals the perfect zombie touch with sparkling red eyes.  If you click the bottom image you will see a larger version and just might be able to tell a bit better.  I hope you enjoy this tag, I had to pry it out of Alex's hands to share it with you!  She kept mumbling something about 'love it and pet it and call its name George' or something.....crazy lady!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 12

 Welcome to day 12!!  What fun today is and you are going to be so happy you stopped by Alex's blog today.  hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge - caw, caw!

Today I am sharing yet another tag Alex made.  She is really loving this witch set from Inkadinkado and combined an image from it with images from two other Inkadinkado sets.  Wow, look at her use multiple items. 

Actually, it is great fun to watch her frantically digging through things searching for what she just knows is in there someplace.  I have to be alert though because it is not uncommon for things to start flying through the air and I have no desire to be taken our by a rubber stamp or spool of ribbon.  

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 11

Hello, and so thrilled to see you, no really, I am.  Hey, what is that look for? Don't you know that this is the only time Alex lets me out of the cage?  I know, I am locked up like an animal or something!

Alex used one of the images by Stampotique.  She absolutely adores these creepy girls.  They make her cackle giggle.  Seriously, she sits there giggling to herself while working with them.  One day, I am going to call someone about that, but for now, I just let it go.  This image is called Spykee (wonder how they ever came up with that name, pfft). 

Now, off to the other Wicked Bloggers creations with you!  I have things to do, like find the image for today's prizes.  Prizes you say? Oh yes, did you not read the rules at Terra's Blog?  GO, do it now!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 10

HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!  So glad you are here.  Hope I haven't kept you waiting.  Alex and I had a bit of difficulty waking this morning.  The fall chill has descended and it is making us both want to stay curled up with our head tucked under our wing, or in her case blankets.

Isn't this card Alex made a bit fun?  I know there is a stamp she has been wanting to buy for a couple of years that is just some legs with witches boots, but this one is pretty similar.  Doesn't it look like a motley crew? (and yes, for you old-timers, I had a difficult time not capitalizing that or spelling crew differently)  I am pretty sure that they are all saddled up the bar, the Mummy hanging on trying to look over the top, drinking all sorts of lovely Halloween concoctions and celebrating being in public.

The bat and kitty cat (really?  a cat?) are one Alex made with molds from 1st Impressions and polymer clay.  She added just a touch of the Craft-T Rub-On to highlight the designs.

I wanted to be certain you had a good look at the sparkle Alex added to the Witch's boots. She is a bit proud of the finished result. Not certain why, anyone can color over marker with Copic Spica Glitter pens, but..... whatever!

Happy Halloween!
