day 13!!

I've got a bit of a long post for you all today! first off I will share with you my piece for the day. I decided to make a card to enter into the sparkle and glitter challenge. The image is called Mistress Vampyra by Rick St Dennis and can be found here

I coloured the image with promarkers and added some stickles where I wanted it to sparkle. The papers I have used are all from my stash. The die cut in the corner is a memory box one and the house the other side is Tim holtz, I have used some fake spider webbing to hang over that. The flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the lace and bling again are from my stash. I know I used pink! but it was the only big flower I had got that would go, and that bit of pinky packing paper....well I quite like that :) 

I have been playing around with taking photos of my projects trying to find the best way to do it...I have to give a shout out to Lady Braxton for providing me with such a wonderful pumpkin that I have found makes a great prop for photos as well as it being a brilliant decoration :)

This card I am entering in the following challenges.

Now onto the next part of my post today, my fabulous children have been doing some crafting too so I am going to share with you some of their work.

First up is a card my 7 year old Andrew made he used an image from stamping with the dragon, it was a cute image so I thought it would be the best one to give him to would seem he takes after me far too much as when I came in to check on him he had turned it into a zombie owl! the image can be found here if anyone wants it not to zombify lol

Next up is 2 pieces that Ben my 9 year old made, the first one is a tag made with Tim Holtz craft resist paper and covered with distress stain. the image is from smeared ink and can be found here .

The second piece he made is a card  using some little images from smeared ink and the image in the middle is from delicious doodles and can be found here

He really did have great fun making those red splodges that he said looks like blood :D
I love that he even put a lightening bolt into the image :)

Now you have seen whats been going on in my house hop along with the rest of the bloggers today :) See you all again tomorrow with more creepiness!

I agree with Andrew, it's Halloween and a zombie is required. An owl is an interesting choice.

I love Ben's use of blood in his projects and his colouring.

Shell, your lady of the night is gorgeous. I love the stickles and bling on your project.

Happy Halloween to a family who crafts together.

Andrew's zombie owl is cool as can be! I love zombies! The spider web paper is great and I really like the bats and fence he added :)

Ben made two awesome projects! I love the ink colors and the creepy image on the tag! His second piece is amazing as well! I love the splotches of blood and the lightening bolt in the cemetery picture is fabulous! I like the Frankenstein head and the skull too :)

I wish I could have a coloring date with the three of you :)
