WOW.... another Monday so soon!

A lot has happened this week...
I didn't get my van out of the shop yet.
We had a beautiful weekend.
I was sick all weekend.
My friend put her son in the hospital with no diagnosis yet.
fun times at work.
and not so fun times at work.

but hey I'm reading a great book, I made a card and I'm looking forward to scraping this next weekend with the girls.

So here is my card for this weeks challenge.

Macabre Monday #027 - Gothic Asian Persuasion

I found this great Asian silk painting with a wonderful raven. I matted it on black and embellished it with a few silk flowers of tan and black.

have a great week.

Macabre Monday - HDH026

Well it is Macabre Monday again at Haunted Design House and this week the inspiration is Vampy Vampyress. I found a pic that I took last month at the Bad Fairy Ball. I added some distressing to the pic, found a cool painting for the background, added a scroll work stamp, and a teasing little sentiment.


WOW... Four days off from work and what do I do? A whole lot of nothing. Sometimes I wonder ..
I did watch the Olympics and plan to as much as I can in the next couple of weeks. I remember gathering as a family to watch and cheer on our country as a kid. It seems to have lost some of the energy that it once had.I have lots to do today to make up for my laziness. Grocery shopping, laundry, bill paying, catch up with the kids and trade my car back. Off to start on my list.

I love the bubbles up my nose!

It is always October at Haunted Design House. This week their challenge was to make some with an Eerie Inspiration. When I think of eerie I think of something just a little off. Just off enough to give you a double take and maybe raise a few hairs.

Here is my take on the challenge.

See what I mean? lol

Macabre Monday

Haunted Design House hosts a Macabre Monday challenge. This week it is Purple Haze. I entered twice this week.
The first being a funny layout with a pic of me in my purple fairy outfit. I used four different papers, stitching, staples, metal embellishment and a news print flourish. This picture was taken on a day of fairy fun in the park.

The second a card with a creepy bride doll.
Three papers were used and I changed the color of each of them to have them better fit the theme. I also changed the color of every flower that I used because all of my flowers were white. The creepy doll photo was found online. I added the watch showing the start of the witching hour.
I hope you enjoy.
