Let the Creepmas festivities begin!!

The first day of Creepmas has arrived!! Huzzah!!
Hopefully, you are joining me from two different,
but equally awesome, blog hops.
The first being the original, 13 Days of Creepmas hop,
 
and the second one being the St. Dennis 13 Days of Creepmas blog hop.
 
RSD 13 Days of Creepmas
 
That's a whole lotta hops!
The hop order for both hops is in my sidebar.
Hopefully, there will be minimal confusion.
 
My first project for Creepmas is a Creepmas card.
Every year, I intend to send out handmade cards to everyone on my list,
but by the middle of December I usually admit defeat
and break out with the (oh the horror!) store bought cards.
Yeah, I said it. I sell out on occasion. So sue me.
   
Now who wouldn't love to receive a holiday card like this?!
It's both, creepy and festive!!
 
I used one of the many fabulous Creepmas images drawn by the talented,
Rick St. Dennis.
This lovely little gal is called, "I love my prezzies".
She can be found HERE in Rick's Etsy shop.

In keeping with the Creepmas theme, I added a handmade
paper bat button, with some candy striped twine and a fitting sentiment sticker. 
 
And let's not overlook this trio of menacing parcels.
I would have had no problem waiting until Dec. 25th to open my gifts
as a kid, if they looked at me like this!
 
Well, it appears that you still have quite a bit of hopping to do,
so I won't keep you any longer.

  1. WooHoo! It's finally here! I must say Glo that I'm not sure I'd open such menacing prezzies. Looks more like they need to be fed. Love the trad colors and the fab bat embellie. xxD

  11. You definitely have perfected the creepy and festive look! Amazing coloring and great card design! I'm loving the addition of the little bat button with the baker's twine :) BTW, I messed up the original hop code and Nat's and Donna's links don't work. I have put the updated hop list in the yahoo group and this time I actually CHECKED the links and they work. Please update your hop list when you get the chance. Sorry for the screw-up and inconvenience.
