Day 9 of 13 Days of Creepmas with RSD

Hi and welcome to the ninth 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.

Wow, day 9 already!  THAT day will be upon us sooner than many realise.
My next character sums up much of what I think of the commercialism that has elbowed it's way into what should be a time of joy and goodwill. How many have taken out 2nd mortgages or gone into debt just to "keep up with the Jones'"? Just to get their "little darlings" the latest toys that will be forgotten in favour of the boxes?
Anyway enough of my prattling. You may want to see what I made?
Another card. This time following the sketch over at Feeling Sketchy.

an Easel card featuring Bah Humbug. A very Scrooge type figure I think you'll agree.
I must admit - I think I might forgo the dead rats on my wreath.
The image was coloured with promarkers before all the distressing started. 
The BP has had ""Bahhhh Humbug" printed on. I'm going to have to get me a rubber stamp before next year.
Then we have three strips of dry embossed and ink distressed DP.
The embellishment - well I felt this totally fitting.

The three ghosts in "A Christmas Carol" and a small length of Marley's chain.
The sentiment on the base, that also forms the "stop" is another of Rick's images, Merry Creepmas, Bones

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.

I'd like to enter this into the challenge

  5. How cool Helen. I don't know how you and the others are turning out so much great work for the creepmas blog hop. The chain and ghosts is a brilliant adornment for this card x

  6. Oh Helen, this has a gorgeous vintage feel. Just like something out of Dicken's A Creepmas Carol. Love the inked embossing and Scrooge looks like he's running from the Ghost of Creepmas Past. I see his chains rattling there. FABULOUS!!!!!!
