It’s the Grim Creeper Valentine’s Day Blog Hop

You guessed it!! We’re at it again! If you recall, the first Grim Creeper Blog Hop was this past Halloween!

So once again the Skypin’, crafty chat, girlfriends hauled out our somewhat stalker’ish creepy sentiments to go blog hopping on Valentine’s Day! Welcome friends who have arrived from Suzanne’s Blog!!

You’ll recognize the background from my card! lol I hadn’t planned on posting these back to back but I thought the tag background was perfect for the card I had planned, that I re-created it. (Insanity! Yes, I know! lol)



My card critic thought I should place another key on the inside but I asked…well…what key do you think is on the outside of the card? Haha! Or is it????! Muahahahaaaaa…


The next stop on the Grim Creeper Blog hop is Shaela!

Please click the link below in case you get lost and it will take you to the rest of the crafty chat gals!!

Thanks for dropping in on this Valentine’s Day!! HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!

With much love and hugs,

Here’s what’s in the card…

Wings of Love…Something Messy Challenge

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do for a while is nurture on my grungy-ness, vintage, shabby chic techniques/style. Lately, I have been working on my art journal quite a bit which is why I haven’t been posting much with respect to grungy art. In the journal, the pages are at different stages of completion with none that are finished yet to show you. Work has been trying lately so I’ve just been spraying ink to my hearts content. That’s what I enjoy about art journaling, no structure…just play!

Well this tag is a…um…a result of a journal page. I needed to remove excess ink and well, tags are great for blotting to use for later! I have a few of these tags (blotted) kicking around! I need to get on them to make good use of them else I’ll have a tag backlog!

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is…Something Messy! These days I don’t think I do anything that isn’t messy!


I really like the way this tag turned out. The colours (which aren’t normally ones that I gravitate to) have just mesmerized me! Inspiration took the drivers seat from there and off I went! The tag, ribbon, wings have been coloured with Dylusions Ink Spray. Of course, I couldn’t resist using Perfect Pearls, UTEE, Glossy Accents and I even pulled out metallic distress stain. What fun! In terms of messy…well ink spraying, ribbon dying and would you believe it or not using UTEE is messy too….hmmmm…or perhaps it’s just me! lol

I am also entering this tag into the Inspiration Emporium’s Spread some Love Challenge since there’s lots of “love” that was put into the tag and it’s my February tag in 12 tags of 2013 🙂 .

I highly suggest getting inky if you haven’t in a while. Trust me…you’ll feel so much better! 🙂

Thanks for dropping in today!
