31 Days of Halloween - Day 22

Nice to see you back again- or if this is your first visit- where have you been all my life?  As I mentioned earlier this week, life has been a bit crazy for Alex and she is running out of time for some things.  Unfortunately, that means that although today is the new challenge day for Fairy Knoll, she doesn't have anything to share.  However, please still swing by and participate in their challenge this week for a chance to win some of their fabulous images.

Now, onto what I have selected from that dwindling stack or ready to go items Alex asked me to work with.  This is a lovely marionette fairy from Sweet Pea Stamps and the image is called Puppet Angel in the Circus and is even on SALE!

This image is one that Alex always seems to forget how much she likes until she starts putting the card together.  I think this one turned out especially nice, don't you?  Notice the lighter face on the puppet.  It is like the old style dolls. 


Challenges:
Flutter By Wednesday #127 - Open Challenge

Speaking of dolls, is there anything more creepy than old dolls?  Not meaning that this card is creepy in any way.  My brain just took a turn right there, I hope you followed along.  So, for those of you that really want the Halloween post to be SCARY here is what I have to SCARE you today.  This summer during the family vacation, Alex visited The House On The Rock.  If you don't know what that is, Google it because I am getting tired typing with my beak.  Anyway, the house itself was really cool, and then there were all the collections.  There was some neat stuff in the collections, but anyone who has been there will probably agree that this guy must have been Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.  Nothing like giving a hoarder the funds to just build more space for the stuff and then people paying to see it all.
One of the displays was a doll carousal.  Now, as I mentioned earlier, Alex finds dolls just a bit creepy.  The two story high multi-layer carousal of these dolls spinning around to music was pretty much her nightmares come to life.  She hurried through there just as fast as all the people in the way would allow and still thinks about them all coming to life and reaching out with there creepy little hands.  So without further delay- welcome to her nightmare
!


Now if THAT doesn't freak you out - you are one tough cookie!

Happy Halloween!
Edgar

Love your card. My son & nephew are creeped out by dolls too. My mom collected porcelain dolls and had a life size one. The would swear it stared at them and wouldn't sleep in her room when they stayed.

Beautiful card, love the colors you used and the background papers you selected to set it off.
Holy Moly a double decker red doll carousel, that is one of the strangest things i've ever seen. I'm ok with the dolls, unless they are clown dolls ...yikes!

Alison said...

Oh Edgar, you made me actually laugh out loud today! I can just imagine you typing with your beak! That carousel is pretty darn creepy! Please tell Alex that I really like the fact that she colord the face a different shade than the body. Great attention to detail!

Love the colouring on the marionette... the dolls my mum used to keep were like that - different colours that is. I actually like the carousel. What does that make me?
Hope the clock stops an hour or two for you
