Play your cards...February New Challenge

The words for this month is Playing Cards,
when you think of that theme the possibilities are endless!
Hearts <3 , Joker, Alice, cards themselves ...

But to tell you the truth, I've been running like a "headless chicken"
with this theme; TOO much possibilities and so little time...
then I just picked The One idea and went with it.

I painted one of the giant Playing card I got from a Tiger-store,
then added a skull image for a napkin I got from a dear friend of mine,
some stamping with The Blank Page Muse Stamp and finally 
black paint with stencils and few chippoards 
... and the first piece was ready


Playing Cards, says Granne, any way you like...

There's not exactly a corporate ladder for Asylum Anne 
to climb at her current workplace, but in other places, 
it's a matter of playing your cards right in your climb to the top, 
overcoming setbacks, and once at the top, 
as Death looks on, was it all really worth it?

At the top, or is it at The End?

Put on your best suit:

Stamps:  Paper Artsy  Words Plate 6 (for the shorthand writing!)
Stencil Girl stencils: Faces in the Crowd, On the Edge, Subliminal skull, 
Ribbons & Circles, October 2016 Club stencil.


Hello from Kim!

I have a sneaky peek...I'm having fun burying cards as we speak. The direction twists and turns and rounds about upon itself! Honestly no clue where I will wind up, but that's the fun right???

Come back soooon I promise I will have more to share!

After the Poe blog hop (did you have a jaunt through our offerings?), 
a not-so-little Raven tells me there will be a Dark Valentine hop 12-16 Feb, so there could be something here with the emphasis on DARK!

Meantime, our challenge to you is to share your dark, creepy, weird makes with us. 
Theme is optional - you create what your heart tells you to do and we'll love to come and see.
