Smeared and Smudged January Member Blog Hop

Well hello hello hello.
First can I just say"??? Wow do I love modern technology....NOT!!!
I have been trying since about 9am eastern time to get this posted.
Nothing with blogger for once but my internet this time. Gotta love WiFi....
I will get a better internet. I especially have to have a more reliable one as I am going to need to be connected more often for crafting reasons.
Ok on to my card's today. I did 4 different project's for this hop. I kept changing my mind about which one I wanted to post so decided this morning to post them all..
Why not,? Right?
I have made 2 Cards and 2 Atc's using the chosen theme from smeared and smudged which was "MESH"
I looked all over my house for some real metal mesh and could only find this really little stuff I have to make a necklace that was supposed to have been finished month's ago.
I used mostly smeared ink digi stamp's and rubber stamp's on my project's.
The 2 atc's were made using my new images from "Octopede Factory" You can find their digi's on etsy.
They do have a blog but not sure of the address and dont want to post the wrong one but you all know how to find a blog. she (lily) has some cool little quirky image's. I used herEdgar Allan Poe digi and also Frida Kahlo.  Most of us know who Poe was and some may know who frida was. She was an awesome artist. She was bed ridden for most of her adult life and alot of her painting's were of her and kinda on the weird side. Just the kind of stuff I get into. Look her up sometime and check out her painting's.  Lily even got the unibrow perfect for her image.
I also used a rose rubber stamp from bombshell stamp's. '
I used a mesh stamp from smeared ink and also borrowed some drywall mesh tape stuff from the hubby's stash of goodie's.
Digi's and rubber  used Frida and Edgar Poe digi  from Octopede Factory.
Old time hearse- graveyard scene- bride and groom skull's --Blessed Be text-- mesh stamp from smeared ink.
Rose's and lil skulls on frida atc are from Bombshell rubber collection. The lil skulls on flourish are stamped on shrink paper and shrunk. LoL (of course)
I hope this internet stay's connected long enough to upload these pic's.
I typed out this post about 5 times before I realized I could copy and paste it and send it to myself in an email and then copy and paste it here. Wow what a day it has been.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog on the blog hop.
Since I am the last stop you can rest your weary lil finger's and eye's now and take a breather.
Maybe I got lucky and not many people have  made it through the hop yet...
