Day 7 of Creepmas Blog Hop with RSD

Hi and welcome to the seventh day of 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. 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 - you will also win the new image from Rick's blog - yes there are 2 images per day being rolled out. The blog roll can be seen over on the left, starting with Rick's "Airless Chambers" blog and ending with Nataliya's.

That's the copy paste bit, lol.

Another card from me today.
Using yet another fabulous image from the talented Rick St Dennis. This one is called Creepmas Morning.
There's been a few Christmas morning's in years gone by when I have looked like this happy family. After working all night, then having to "deal with" two very excited children.
I scanned this before adding a light dusting of chalks to the BG. Coloured with promarkers, a few touches here and there with some glitter pens (the spider's legs, star and the tree) with some pencil colouring on the tree.
I did say I'd made a card

The green cobwebby ribbon was in a RAK from the talented Barb Foster of Haunted Design House infamy.
The pictures hanging on the wall are just pieces cut from ribbons in my stash.
 The little rosette/wreath was made from the offcuts produced when making the frame for my family portrait. Some olive green satin ribbon to add definition.
All this was based on the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.

I hope you are enjoying seeing all these projects as much as I'm enjoying making them. I thank you for all your kind comments it makes it all so much more worth while.
Off you pop now to see Nataliya and I'll see you tomorrow.

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.
