Well it is Donna aka Popsicle Toes from Haunted Design House's birthday today.  Woohoo party time.

Sorry about the bad pun!
The image is one I drew and the fabulous papers are from Crafty Chaos Designs.

Hope you have a wonderful birthday Donna.  Now I did try to make you a zebra like the one you have only smaller but alas he didn't turn out.  Then I drew a jester's head and made it into shrink plastic and attempted a compact mirror oo disaster number two so I have now made it into a little wall hanging (don't worry I will never see your house so you can promptly put it in the bin tehe)  Well the thought was there, and I will post it to you anyway.

Anyways hope you have a super birthday ya classy chick.

Big birthday hugs

HDH086 - Alone in the Dark

This week at Haunted Design House the Macabre Monday Challenge is Alone in the Dark.  We are sponsored by our own Teri from Delicious Doodles.  Wow does she have some amazing digis to offer.

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project using a black or eerily dark background for your main image.

I actually managed to get a shot on the printer and printed these beauties out to colour but alas my two year old thought that a digital entry would be better and got her mucky little paws all over my printout. 

The first one is called Kitty Witch can you believe she is only £1.50 to purchase!  I tried to make it look like she was so fast at moving that she was a blur kind of magic.  Hubby said oh that image is nice but why is it blurry over there, tehe.  The second I just put a filter over it and added a sentiment from Return of the Living Dead although I think that the dispatch was for more paramedics but let's not split hairs.  The zombie girl is called I'm ba-aack.  I adore these two images and at Teri's store there are lots more wonderful images.

Anyway hope you find the time to get a card in for this challenge as she is offering up a prize this week so hop on over to Haunted Design House for a lookie.

Elven head

I have sculpted another little elven head and I got some fabritac so was messing about with adding hair. I just used super sculpey and some acrylic paint to add some shadows on the face.

Anyway I like this little guy so na na na na na na who says I'm not mature!

HDH085 - Gothic Pinups

Woohoo this week at Haunted Design House our sponsor is Tiddlyinks with the Gorgeous Gothic Pinups.  It is of course called Gothic Pinups.  Now I have created the base non-digital and the sentiment digital.

Isn't this little filly is called Flora and personally I thinks he is rather dapper!

Dark... sexy... cute... creepy... what's YOUR interpretation?!

The skulls were from a brilliant site

Anyway the prize is a $10 voucher for their store where they have not only more gothic digis but some seriously cute digis.

So all you have to do is use a gothic type pinup and bob's your uncle you could be in for winning the $10 voucher.

Now I am off with hubby for the day as we have that seldom chance to get away without the kids today and it rarely happens so we are cockahoop!

Do you guys ever read over your post a bit after you have posted it and think my god what the hell have I written, it is total gibberish and the grammar is like that of a little baby.  I do all the time.  I notice that I write things like my two year old speaks geesh what a doofus.

Stamp it Crazy - Summer Lemonade

The challenge over at Stamp it Crazy is summer lemonade.  

1. Make a New Card, Project, or Scrapbook Page. 2. Lets see your spring colors. 3. Your Project must have 3 Brads and 1 flower. 4. All entries must be in April 23rd at 5:00 Central time. 5. You will win this image from Stampitcrazy, Digi to outside USA... Rubber Stamp to USA if desired.

Now I had quite a few pics of this showing the lemons and sugar bag inside but my laptop has had to go back to the service centre for repair so I stupidly haven't got the pics on hubby's laptop.

I put two lemons inside with a sugar bag and I made a little basket to house them.  The kids and I made lemonade which was quite fun actually and they loved it. 

The back of the lemon tag has a recipe for making lemonade.  Sorry for short posts and lack of commenting but I so hate this laptop it is slow, clicks when you don't want it to and the keys are wrecked.

So if you want to win this image along with sentiment then get your bahookey over to Stamp it Crazy.

Macabre Monday 084 - Zombie Apocalypse

This week at haunted design house it is my turn to sponsor the challenge so it is therefore a Zombie Apocalypse eeeek.

I had a few ideas but absolutely no time as the kids are off for two weeks and D'Arcy is the cling monster this week.  I tried shrink plastic zombies then I tried painting on a slate but then I just got an old canvas and painted over it with zombies.  Now it is from my head so therefore not very good as I am terrible at doing things from my head and I was holding D'Arcy which let me tell you was a complete nightmare she isn't exactly a litle light feather anymore and now I have biceps like Arnie!

Now hubby thinks these pics are a disgrace not the actual zombies but the pics I have taken with the camera but what can you do we took the kids to the beach during the day yesterday then we went to a barbeque and never got back until really late so had to make do with these. 

Now honestly you have to go check out the other work it is supremely fantastic and there are three zombie digis of mine up for grabs which are:



Anyway whatever you are doing have a great day.  I feel like a zomie at the moment.  How do kids keep you up half the night then wake up at the crack of dawn with as much energy as they had the day before!

Oh and sorry haven't been commenting as much as my laptop is away to get fixed and this one is so slow it drives me demented and the keys are really hard to type on.  So will defo get to look through the blogs when they give me my laptop back....

Macabre Monday - Magically Witchy

"Magically Witchy!"  at Haunted Design House

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based project That features witches, witchcraft, magic or the occult. Incantations, familiars, potion ingredients, all are welcome this week.

This is a journal I altered.  My hubby despairs at me and the mountain of journals I own which have never been touched and my 'oh I have to have more attitude'.  The image is called Alexandria (just like my daughter) and she is one of the Stitchy Bear Stamps Digis.  I thought she looked too nice to macabre her out too much so made a witchy journal.  The ribbon I used was sent to me by the Creepiness herself Glo.  The green paper is from echo park (I think) and I used the thick ranger embossing powder glass type thingy (how technical of me!)  The letters are from the same card 12x12 pack as the blue paper I have distressed.  The brads are from papermania.  The little cat and witch at the top are from different sticker halloween packs.  I coloured this little beautiful digi with copics (I know have some more colours thanks to my hubby x).

I think I am going to use this notebook to use a darker art journal.  I have a few others earmarked for a normal art journal.
We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, Stitchy from Stitchy Bear Stamps.

The winner this week will win a $10 voucher for the Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps Store.  OMG what are you waiting for she has some delicious digis, even our own minion Teri's digis.

Anyway have a great day and hope you find time to play with us this week.  Good luck for winning the amazing prize.
