Hello!  Thanks for joining us on our hop.  This month I asked the Bombshell Girls to make something along the lines of:

1) Red - White - Blue
2) Firecrackers (Bombshells)
3) Military
4) or sparkling like a firework!

Here's July's Prize Package:

I make cards for Operation Quiet Comfort and also for Operation Write Home, so this month's theme worked out well.
So here's my card...

SO to celebrate my excitement, I am going to be giving aways some goodies.  I have a few things now, but I am planning on picking up a few things while I am at CHA to add!  I will be posting pic from there all week.

So make sure you stop by and check it out this week!  When I get back I will post the details about the contest.

Too Much Fun Today - Bomshell Blog Hop & Yasu's Japanese Gauche Alchemy Party

Below is the Bombshell Blog Hop & Here is the link for Yasu's Japanese Gauche Alchemy Party.

See the great projects made with Gauche Alchemy products by great Japanese artists!!

Bombshell DT Artist Trading Card Bloghop

ATCs are something new for me.  This was great to start it off.  I love ALL of the cards that I received. 
 I am making something cool to put them all in.  It inspired me and I am working on more now. 

When we started we were going to try to pick a "Bombshell" most like us. 
Well, I started shooting on a rifle team when I was 10 years old. 
It was a great confidence booster and I made a lot of friends. 
(I grew up in Oregon, so it wasn't that odd)
For mine I picked the Retro Cowgirl Set!  She's a pistol packin' hottie! 
Since ATCs are the size of playing cards....and playing cards remind me of the Old West,
 I actually used cards for my base.  I stamped the flowers with the spur stamp. 
I used the barbed wire stamp at the bottom.  I added a fabric "bandana" in the corner.
The Cowgirl was colored with Copic Markers

I would love to show you the cool cards I got...but you need to hop to see 'em all!


If you didn't start there, do not pass go..do not collect $200 (sorry) and go back to the top!


For even more fun today, when you are done here go to Yasu's Japanese Gauche Alchemy Party.
