J I C: Bingo Theme with Penny Blossom

Hello Everyone!

Before I get started I want to let you know that I have joined a Design Team. I have joined a UK challenge blog called Just Inspiration Challenges. I'm delighted to know that they have accepted me and I will be on "Team B."

Here is my project:
I used Penny Blossom's digi: "Coffee Lover"

For the BINGO challenge I used: Squares, 3 papers and Flowers.

I colored my image with Spectrum Noir Markers. 
The flowers I created myself with Spellbinder dies and Viva Decor Peal Pen. 

Here is the reference BINGO game/challenge card
Here is the direct link:
The theme this week is BINGO and choose any 3 items in a straight line to use on your project.

I hope you like my card and I hope to see your work for the challenge. Don't forget to link your card at
AND that it's U.K. time ;) 

Thank you for stopping by,

Katya Bess

My book of nightmares

Good morning!

Hope everyone is doing great! Today I'm joining as Guest DT for Simply Betty Stamps. Last month I won a couple of little trivia questions Betty gave out at the SBS Fan page... This one was Mr. Gibbs from Pirates of the Caribbean.

If you're just visiting me... Thank you very kindly if you'd like to hop along to see what the SBS DT and other Guest DT created just go to the start:

Okay here's the image..... BUT let me warn you it's super scary. LOL it's scared me... when I opened the file I was thinking what in the world will I make with that? LOL I tried my best to make it look "dark" even though hubby says it's not dark enough (he was talking about my color choices but he loves the image.) Ha!

Okay, okay, okay.... here it is---
This image was drawn by Abigail Larson for SBS. 
Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! Screams of horror Right? That's how I felt. LOL

I decided to cover up a composition journal and make it into a "nightmare journal..."
I colored my entire image with copic markers and I freehand wrote:
"My Book of Nightmares" on the scrolls. 
Betty definitely put a challenge on me with this image. LOL 
I decided to give this to my husband... Lets see if I can read what he writes... heehee.

You can purchase this digi at:

Hope you had fun,
