A Halloween Shrine

Oh how I wish this picture showed up better. 
You can barely see the Rickety Haunted house with skeletons dancing inside,
tree, fence and graveyard. The top has a candelabra,
an owl in a window and a skull- all with the appropriate spider webs.
A Halloween shrine made from foam core board for a swap.
My partner has already received it.

Now off to visit you all!

Halloween ATC's

Where is the time going? I figured I had better start posting some more
of my Halloween creations or I would still have a pile left over by Halloween.
Here's just a few ATC's for a swap at VPI.

Happy Haunting!

The other side has stamped images from Oxford Impressions

Dr Coffin's Apthocary Cabinet

 I know everyone is super excited to do Laura's Apothecary
event coming up later this month.
In the mean time.....
Need a little more inspiration?
I used all but one stamp from Oxford Impressions
New DR. Coffin's Apothecary stamp set
to create my Apothecary shoppe

I like to think my art tells a story. Follow me around the shoppe
and you'll see what the Old Dr's been up to.

Dr. Coffin and his latest patient victim

Mixing his concoctions.
Wonder what he has in mind?

The poor grieving widow....

What skeletons he must have in his closet.

Have a Spooktacular crafty Halloween !!!!

where the challenge is Read all about it..
I decided to combine the two and use the raven stamp from
Oxford Impressions new stamp sheet.Apothecary
and the Poe stamp from Oxford Impressions. Haunted stamp sheet.
to create my Halloween inspired tag.
Checking off another one on my to do list. LOL

P.S. Finally have my email back! YEAH!!!!!

The Witches Wardrobe

I've been having so much fun playing with the NEW release from
Oxford Impressions Dr. Coffin's Apothecary stamp set.
This started out as a Christmas ornament I picked up at a yard sale 
painted it black and hubby helped me create the wire skirt.
Stamped up the images, bats and crows and
added a tulle cape and black velvet hat stamped
with embossed stars and moons from the 
Masquerade set

added the stamped bats under her skirt.
of course every witch needs her cat handy. 

Dr. Coffin's Apothecary
Aren't these the coolest stamps for Halloween!!
Just wait to see what else I have in store for you!

Seems they say my email has been hijacked 
and will be about a week  to prove who I am 
so if you have sent me an email I'm not ignoring you I just can't get to them yet.
Gotta love computers!!!
