Day 6- La la la, la la la....

We are on day 6 at Simply Betty Stamps challenge, the Twelve days of Scary Christmas! I have to say, I was sooo excited to win day 5's entry! :) The prize is a never released digi of an image that won't be released until March of next year! Pretty amazing stuff Betty has coming out next year! You won't want to miss it!
Here is Betty's version of Jingle Bells turned into Scary Bells:
Scary Bells
“Crashing through the night,
With a horrid mangling sound,
Clang each heart with fright,
To terrorize the town.
Bells from belfries ring,
Making spirits rise, 
The freaky tones like voices moan throughout the midnight skies!

Scary Bells, Scary Bells
Ring your ghostly call
Oh what fun it is to scream and terrorize us all. Ah!

Scary bells, scary bells,
With your manic sound,
When you toll the spirits roll from six feet underground!

Scary Bells, Scary Bells
Ring your ghostly call
Oh what fun it is to scream and terrorize us all. Ah!

Scary bells, scary bells,
With your manic sound,
When you toll, the spirits roll from six feet underground!
 This the ingredients for this ornament! TFL!

T'was The Nightmare Before Christmas!

Over at Simply Betty Stamps, we are challenged to include, Skeleton heads, Monsters, or sweet little kids dreaming of such wonderful Horrors!  We are to give this Christmas poem that cute, but creepy SBS twist! 

"T’was the Nightmare Before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was peaceful, not even a mouse.

The stockinga all hung by the  chimney with care,
When opened that morning would cause such a scare!
The children nestled and all snug in their beds
Would have nightmares of monsters and Skeleton Heads!"

Isn't she such a cutey! :) I made this card for My daughter and her family for Christmas! They love the outdoors whether it is sunshine, or cold outside! It just seemed to fit them perfectly! TFL!

Thank you!

My Son and DIL had a baby girl on Nov 21st! My grand baby was hospitalized because she had swallowed poop sometime while she was being born! It turned into an infection, and her respiratory rate was extremely fast! She had to have a UV light put on her because she ended up with jaundice due to lack of nourishment! Needless to say, baby Aurelia is doing real good now! She still has to be on the antibiotics for a few more days, but she was wheeled in to be with Mommy and Daddy today and is out of NICU! Praise Jesus!
Anyway, my dear DIL requested for me to make a thank you card for all the nurses, and doctors that helped make their stay at the hospital very pleasant, and helped make their baby girl well again! This is one of the cards I have made for her to hand out!
The one thing I love about this stamp is that on the snowman, if you look closely, it has the words,"to God's glory" stamped on it! I just love it! Here is what I used to make this card! TFL!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge # 72! All About Sports!

This week at My Sheri Crafts the theme is all about sports! I really had to sit and think about this one! Even though football is in season right now I just couldn't get inspired to make a football card! The weather is starting to change, not so hot here anymore in Texas, and that gave me an the idea to make a winter sports card! :)
