Pin-Up Challenge at Bombshell Stamps

Hello, all!  Did you have a good weekend?  I had a great weekend!  I spent a lovely Friday evening with friends and then Saturday, hubby and I caught the new Will Ferrell movie, Everything Must Go.  Guess what?  Will Ferrell is a terrific dramatic actor!  I was completely convinced that I was watching the life a real person fall apart.  No silly pratfalls, no raunchy bathroom humor, just an honest performance that was sad and poignant all at the same time.  The character felt "real", as if I know this person or could be this person.  Will Ferrell, do I see an Oscar nom in your future?  Maybe not for this role, but perhaps down the road.   

We rounded out the weekend with a fabulous meal at our house shared with my sister and her boyfriend.    Sunday dinner is sort of a tradition and we always put on a big spread with everyone contributing to the menu.  The menu for this particular evening consisted of barbecued ribs, roasted corn on the cob, baked mac and cheese, Parker House rolls,  and coconut cream pie with a macaroon crust, YUMMM!  It sounds decadent, but tasted even better ;D 

Now...why am I here?  Oh, right!  I'm sharing a Bombshell card with you today.  Our featured Pin Up for the month of May is Raven and she has issued forth a challenge sure to get you digging through your ribbons and fabric scraps.  She is asking us to create a project using Linens and Lace.  Good one!

For my card I chose my favorite Bombshell standby, Bombshell Angel.  She is the perfect image to dress up or down depending on the theme.  Heck, I've added a Santa to her to give her some Yuletide Cheer and even colored her green and added stitches to turn her into Franken-Bombshell, after all, she is a bit of a "cut up"...LOL!  Couldn't resist!  Anyhow, she was my go-to gal this time, but I left her in tact and allowed her to shine in all her Bombshell glory.  I colored her with Copics and added lace, and some wide cotton trim as I don't really have any fabric scraps.  I can't sew a lick.  My super crafty friend, Kathy, has even tried to teach me on several occasions, but I must have some sort  of a mental block against it, 'cuz it never sticks.  

Visit the Bombshell Stamps website to pick up this stamp set and many more.  Also, don't forget to check out the forum, the gallery, and our wonderful blog.  It's bursting at the seams with inspiration!  You can also find the details of Raven's challenge, so do drop by!

Well, that's all for now.  Lots of other fun stuff to share this week, so hurry back ;D  Until then, stay crafty!
