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!"

My Sheri Crafts Challenge # 75- Let It Snow!

This week at My Sheri Crafts- create a card/project with snow on it (snowflakes, snowman, snowballs, snow-covered trees, etc)

I chose to make an easel card! I just fell in love with this Ready for the rain Rosie stamp! Even though it says rain, I felt like she looked like she could also be stomping around in the snow with snow boots on too! 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!
