Beastly Butterfly

Well Barb has done it again..... how the heck do you make a butterfly Dark, dangerous and beastly? My answer was to have him threaten somebody. That is a beastly thing to do, don't ya think!
My high flying female, who is about to be dropped in this field of deadly shrink-ray violets, is from Scroll Works Rubber Stamps. If you haven't visited this site yet, you too may find yourself dangling above a dangerous situation!

I do hope you find a little beastyness to my butterfly and I hope you check out all the other fantastically beasty flutters at Haunted Design House.

till next time, ENJOY! Linda

that voodoo that yoodoo so well.....

My sister Paula and I worked side by side in my little shrinky dink craft space and whipped up this creation for the current Haunted Design House challenge. Barb is testing our voodoo knowledge this week. Her instructions were as follows: Images and/or sentiments of the voodoo persuasion. Witch doctors, medicine men, deep south voodoo...

The first thing I thought about was women all dressed in white dancing and gyrating the night away. Stimulating and stirring up the blood. The second thing was a small table in the corner of the room covered in bottles, bowls, candles and chicken bones. Dried ingredients mixed to conger up the perfect spirits to protect your home. A blessing or two mixed in among a spell cast on that darling man who passes out the hymnals on Sunday. Nothing bad, just a nudge my direction.

My sister, Paula, had also thought of the shrine(although after I did) and so suggested me make it together. What fun!! I love crafting together! We will labor and work away making "MY" entry into Barb's weekly challenge.... whoo HOOo!
Now remember this is MY craft room, MY paper, ink, stamps, scissors and most tools!! Basically even MY idea!!!! So do you agree it should be my entry??
I even have the law on my side... Possession is 9/10th of the law...RIGHT!!

So when you stop by Haunted Design House to check out all the marvelous entries this week just remember, that one that looks like my card.... IS MY CARD!!

till next time, ENJOY! the Oz

oh UP-DATE UP-DATE!! go here and see what Paula is saying about MY card now!

cheer up!

Hello everyone! Hugs from the Oz. A quick up-date: I am still struggling with energy levels and clarity of thought. I tend to get very foggy and forgetful when the oxygen levels are low..... go figure! All these years of being an air head are not paying off.... hehe. Thank you so much for the continued love and support that I keep receiving. I know I am not around much but I will be as soon as I can. I PROMISE! I miss you all way to much not to be.
I also have a "beg for understanding" to ask. At first I was trying to send back thank you notes and such for all the lovely cards but I find myself strapped for funds. With the missing work and mounting doctor's bills. PLEASE, do not send me money, I am not asking for that. I do ask that you understand I really appreciate the cards, letters, emails and hugs, I just can't mail a lot of stuff right now. This is my problem with pride more than anything and I now that I have faced it, I will send more thank yous with email.

I started this project with blank cs and stamped tons of HA stamps on them to decorate them up. I used chalk ink for tone on tone colors. I have been wanting to make one of the little pennant banners for a couple of weeks now but I didn't envision making one quite this small...hehe

Please enjoy! Linda aka Oz
