Freaker's Free for All at Haunted Design House

WooHoo!  We're BAAACK!  It's a brand New Year and Macabre Mondays are up and running again at Haunted Design House with a new look and new fortnightly (meaning bi-weekly, but isn't fortnightly infinitely more posh?) format and being on Team B, I get to procrastinate and check out Team A's stuff before I even have to think about mine.  Me likey!  Better yet, to ease into this our challenge is a perenniel fave, Freaker's Free for All, which means Anything Goes (as long as it's not overtly cute, because frankly, that makes us all toss our cookies).

Ahhh, 2013!  A time for new beginnings and a crapload of good intentions that pretty much get tossed aside by Feb, but in the interest of at least documenting my failures, I've decided to start a little New Year's Resolution Journal so I can look back and see how I've failed miserably at the end of the year.  Let's start with the Resolution I make every year, shall we?  You think I'm kidding here?  Ah well...nope!  My deadline used to be Valentine's Day, but last year I reached a new low.  Thank God for fake trees or we wouldn't even be having this discussion.  In my defense, I'm generally still putting stuff up as the doorbell rings on Christmas Eve so it's not like stuff has been up since before Thanksgiving, and the lights are so damn pretty and...well anyway, THIS YEAR IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFERENT. I have to admit, it sorta cramps my style and I'm fairly embarrassed to have people over or open the door for the UPS guy after a certain number of weeks.  I've used (quite appropriately) a Creepmas image from Rick St. Dennis called "I Got Decoratin' to Do" and she was a ball to color with Copics.  Dig the leopard knickers, whadda ya think?  She's enlisted the help of some friendly bats from the Smeared Ink Bats with Garland- Gothic Christmas that comes individually and as a set and a couple of martinis.  Oh oh, I sense another Resolution coming somewhere down the road...  The DP is from the ancient K& Co Christmas Cheer stack that I loved so much in 2009 that I bought a bazillion pads of it.  Time to start using that puppy, eh? 

So that's my first project of the New Year at HDH.  Feels so good to get my creep back on.  Please visit the Blog to see the rest of Team B's fab projects HERE as well as the stellar offerings from Team A HERE.  And don't forget, there's still time to link up your dark, creepy or Gothic projects and let the Minions faun all over your fabulous talent. Now that you've got 2 whole weeks, there's no excuse.

I'm also entering this in the Sparkle and Glitter with Rick St. Dennis New Beginnings Challenge, the Milk Coffee New Beginnings challenge, Corrosive Challenges Out with the Old (in this case the DP) and the Glitter n Sparkle Use a Digi Challenge.


  1. I do come to see your wonderful card creations but I most of all relish your wonderful storyline. Yep. And yes, I love those leopard knickers. All design-worthy gals would certainly don those.


  2. oh my, just love it, those leopard pants are a stitch, and good for you on working New Year Resolutions, I have found it is so easy to get those decorations down by Jan 1, just don't put them up in the first place, ROFL. Hugs

  3. OMG Donna,just love your card and leopard print knickers!Hers not!!

  6. I'm not sure why you didn't title this one "Self Portrait" LMAO!!! So, how's that working out for ya? That image is a freakin' riot and yes, I am digging the knickers! Bella helped me with the tree and it is all down and packed away until next year. Now, if I can just remember to take the wreath off the front door.

  7. What a great idea to remember all of our failed resolutions! Since I make the same ones over and over, it could be used many times. That stamp is just a stitch to color and I love how you did it - leopard skin knickers are a hoot!! Thank you for joining us at Sparkle and Glitter for the New Beginnings challenge.

  8. This is just too funny and brilliant x
