Merry Freakin' Christmas...
Ahhh... the holidays... HDH style `:)
Yes, the endless pursuit to get the winter cards done before the spring thaw... I've been pretty good the last two years, but I'm waaaay behind this year. Yes, I know... it's only July... but I just don't like doing 150 cards that all look alike... you know what I'm sayin'?
Sooooooo, for my very special friends, I get to make doosies like this one! They make me happy... in a twisted, demented, totally WTF kinda way :)
What spurned this bit of happiness today? Two challenges... and they're not even mine! I know... I'm totally psyched (no, not psycho... well, not really) :) There are probably more challenges to which this little baby would apply, but I'm just stickin' with these two:
Stampotique (Christmas in July)
The Burtonesque Dolls (Nightmare Before Christmas)
I started with the Tickled Pink sketch, but strayed too far AND I didn't realize I had to use certain available stamps, so I'll have to work on that one again :)
Stamps: Winter (Stampotique), sentiment (unknown)
Paper: kraft & black cardstock (TAC), & Bazzil cardstocks
Ink: Memento Tuxedo, VersaFine Onyx
Other: Copic markers, black gems & tulle, foam tape
Winter is just one of the creepiest images... me likey alot! And the sentiment couldn't be more perfect, right?! Yep... there are several times during the season that I've said this very thing... SEVERAL times.
I actually finished up a card for the Tiddly Inks blog hop on Thursday! Un-freakin-believable! AND I'm hoping to "formally" introduce y'all to the Sisterhood of the Sinister aka HDH's Macabre Minions on Friday, so tune in!
I love this card but i must go lay down.... christmas in july? .... i know i'm gonna be sick.... whats wrong with making christmas cards in the 2nd half of december... not sleeping, not eating and hating everyone of them? I do it every year!
