Smudgy Antic's Weekly Challenge Entry

Howdy everyone lookin.
I am posting a picture of my entry for the challenge over at
Theme was to use "Hearts" somewhere on your project.
Well I was lucky enough to win the challenge for last week and the prize was a heart.
It was from their "Inner Working's" set. You can follow this link to go straight to it if you are interesting in buying one for yourself.
They have lots of other cool stamps. Rubber and Digital and other merchandise as well.
I chose to make a large tag this week using that stamp along with some other new rubber stamps I just got in the mail the other day from  They are another awesome site that carries digital and rubber stamps. The stamps I used are only available in rubber.
The first set is  "Mi Amor" Mistress of the night Senora Muertas along with the roses and leaves are from their " Sugar Skull's" Collection. and the sugar skull at the bottom is from their "Smiling Skulls" set.
I crinkled the tag and then ironed it out flat and used red brick and black soot distress inks on it.
I also stamped the clock from a wood mounted Tim Holtz stamp.
I also used rock candy from Tim's collection of stuff on the heart and at the bottom left I used a wax seal thingy and put a heart design on it using gold wax.
Added some feather's from my collection.
I love using feather's on stuff that I make.
I do believe that is it. I dont know if I'm supposed to say what all I use or not. I just see other's do it. Well some do and some dont. I myself like it cause it gives me idea's and the know how to buying more craft stuff. I have to buy all mine online and I dont have the thrill of walking down the isle looking so I do my shopping from everyone's blogs.
They are giving away a grumpie image this week and that is another of their awesome stamps I am dying to own. So everyone wish me luck and I wish everyone Good Luck.
Thank's for looking and take care of you and your's.

I also had to throw this picture in. It's of my kitty. Well she's almost a cat now. She stayed little forever I didnt think she was ever gonna grow and then all of a sudden whamo she's huge. Not my lil baby anymore. LoL I love animals. I have 3 dog's and my kitty and 2 rats left.
I had 7 rats at this time last year but if anyone know's rats they sure dont have a long life span.
and it kill's me too. I started adopting rats and got them all at the same time and yepper their the same age and yepper dying really close together.
That's the only downfall of having pet rat's. other than that they are a great pet. Alot smarter than what everyone think's. A person will get bit by a hamster alot quicker than they would a rat.
But anyway enough rambling.
All that from just wanting to post a picture of my kitty cat. LoL
She slept in that blanket all afternoon. That's what all the animal's did today. SLEEP. Including the hubby..

LOL on the sleeping kitty (and hubby)

I love animals myself, and at this time, only have 1 kitty of my own, but the grand cat and grand dog are here, and we still have 2 geese left over from our farm flock (turkeys, geese and chickens...the chickens were mostly all killed by a neighbor's Jack Russell...he killed about 30, 16 in one day. we all have acreage out here, and we cooped and penned them at night and the pen has netting over the yop for the owls and hawks. During the day, they free range. The neighbor across the street keeps his penned all the tikme, and always keep only about 12 chickens...the same dog dug under his pen and killed 6 of his in one day. Now the dog is finally gone. but hubby is older, and I am disabled. I really miss having them and the fresh eggs, but I do not think we'll be getting anymore...we'll see.

I LOVE your tag MaryKay. Very involved, you can see it was a labor of love.
I do not always do such simple pieces (like my entry) but when it comes to some of the challenges here, I have to work with what I have and what ideas come to me, LOL. There are several techniques I want to learn. Like actually coloring with distress inks, but I have none of the reinkers. so not sure how to go from there! HA!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fabulous creation! Absolutely stunning! I used to own rats and you are correct...they make wonderful pets as they are very social. They do pass on too quickly though. You have such a cute kitty! I own 2 myself, both rescue cats. Thanks for playing with smudgy antics!
