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
