Blog Hoppin' with the Bombshells




Hello, everyone! This is my first ever blog hop and wow...am I excited! The last Wednesday of each month the Bombshell Girls put on a blog hop that's open to the public. Do you have some Bombshell Stamps that you want to get inky? Or do you have your eye on some sassy Bombshell images and you're just looking for the right excuse to add them to your stash? Look no further! Join the hop next month by heading over to Bombshell Stamps and pop into the forum for details. You'll be glad you did ;D

February's hop challenge was created by the oh so talented Inky Button (Angela). It's called Mama Said Knock You Out! Don't you just love that title...LOL! Here's what Angela had to say:

"No physical violence here, just time to dust off your PUNCHES and use your NESTIES (QuicKutz, Sizzix, Big Shot etc.) to create your next Bombshell Masterpiece! We all have some fun punches and cutting shapes lying around, so why not use these valuable items and get our money's worth? All you have to do, is make sure something on your card has been punched or die cut....extra credit if there's a hole in your card. *giggle Don't make Mama mad....just start knockin' things out. *wink"


I'm a Nesties girl through and through, so there was no need to dust them off, because I have them sitting next to me at all times. If I could figure out how to lug my Nesties and my CuttleBug to the bank, the post office, or MVD, I would be cranking out die cuts while I wait in line! For this card I used Labels 4 and Labels 8, and colored the image with Copic Markers (my other favorite tool).

My card features a feisty little filly named, Anita Mann. You may of heard of her cousin, Robin DeBanks, or her nemesis, Bessie Mae Mucho. Hahaha! Nope, I'm not that clever...I pulled these names off the Internet by Googling "Best Drag Queen Names". However, don't be mistaken...Anita is 100% woman!

Thanks for stopping by, now be sure and head over to the rest of the awesome blog hoppers and check out their fantastic work! Get ready for loads of inspiration!
