Macabre Monday...

Today I painted a wall in the living room. Of course, this meant not much room in my girl cave!

I snuck in for a bit this afternoon and made a really quick card for Barb Foster's Macabre Monday Challenge.

This week's challenge was to choose a horror flick for a little inspiration. Barb's sample card was "Carrie", and it is awesome. You really should run over and take a look at it!

The two scariest movies I think I've seen are The Exorcist, and The Shining. Both still to this day scare me, so I couldn't make anything using them! Of course, to be honest, the last few days, the scariest flicks have been watching my beloved Cardinal's lose their ball games!!!

I chose an old creepy tale that I saw several years ago, called "The Hellraiser". I found this picture on the internet, and just couldn't resist the straight pins! Of course, the only one I'd be brave enough to mail it to would be Barb!!! Lol... Anyway, here's to 10 minute cards!!!

Supplies: Black CS, Internet Photo, Sentiment: River City Rubber Works, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Ink, Pop dots.

I think I need to go make something a little less gruesome now!

Have a great night!
