The 1st Day of Creepmas with RSD


Hi and welcome to the first annual Creepmas Blog Hop with Rick St Dennis and his wonderful EDT ladies - we will be hopping for 13 days starting Saturday Dec 1, 2012 with new projects and new images every day for 13 days.
Rick has a freebie available on his blog for a while. Also today we are having a contest with this image on the Facebook fan site "Rick St Dennis digi fans and friends" So we are expecting to see all sorts of variations of this image...
Don't forget the daily contest - somewhere in the blog hop there is a new image that just rolled out that day when you find it post on that blog and then rush back here and post what the image is and where you found the new image - you must be first on BOTH blogs to post in order to win the image - on future days you will also win the new image from Rick's blog - yes there are 2 images per day being rolled out but today everyone is a winner because of the free image.

My project for today is a "Gift Card" A card in which a flat gift like money or token can be added.

The base is a gatefold card using olive green card stock.
Some pink and green crimbo paper from stash, well distressed with forest moss DI. A piece of deep bottle green card that has silvery flecks in it as the mat for that torn dark olive coredinations, then my image.


 Meet "I love my prezzies". Coloured with promarkers. What could be worse than having to wear a pink dress? Hence my choice for her outfit.
Open this panel of the card and
The "Merry Creepmas" sentiment can be found here.
Then inside again

The coredinations card was used again here as the pocket, secured with eyelets to the main BP.

The blog roll can be seen over on the left, starting with Rick's "Airless Chambers" blog and ending with Nataliya's



If you're into Halloween and the creepier side of things be sure to follow the CREEPMAS hop which has all sorts of weird stuff including decor, stories and general insanity...its fun... see left hand side bar logo for link


 
 There's also a Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas hop going on - The blog roll for that is also on my side bar.


I'd like to enter this into a couple of challenges
Card Crafters' Circle - Bearing Gifts
Crafts 4 Eternity - Christmas Chaos
Sweet 'n' Sassy - Interior Decorating

  1. Oh Helen, I'd say pink is your color! LOL Fab card and I love the ribbon through the eyelets and the non menacing prezzie embellies. (Oh, Oh, her eyes are the same color as her dress. LOL) xxD

  2. I love your pink and olive combo although I agree it's hard to wear clothes that don't feel like you. At 70, I can still remember the despair of having to put on an olive green Christmas dress that my parents loved! Ick! I adore your inventively folded cards!!

  17. Hi Helen,
    Love your 'Prezzies'! I like the way you colored her! It's pink but not girly; more old and worn!
    I finished coloring mine tonight and she is PINK! Greetings, Caroline

  18. This is definitely a most unusual card and definitely fits the CREEPmas theme. While it also fits the Card Crafter's Circle "presents" theme, it isn't exactly what we were expecting from our challenge entries.
