Alison does an Oopsie…S&S Day 27 of 31 Days and SBS Day 11 of 12

It’s the end of October…Officially. I am so miserable about it. I just love this month so much, and I never get to do half the things I hope to…but there’s always next October!

There’s been a bajillion things going on in my life right now…nothing bad, but it’s been tough to handle it all. I won’t bore you with the details. With that, I goofed on today’s Simply Betty Stamps 12 Days of Halloween. Today’s challenge is “11 Casks a-leaning.” I was thinking caskets. Yeah. I was wrong. Here is the definition of a cask.

cask |kask|nouna large barrellike container made of wood, metal, or plastic, used for storing liquids, typically alcoholic drinks.• the quantity of liquid held in such a container : a cask of cider.

Needless to say, my project was already made (wrong), and I just didn’t have the time to redo it. Hopefully, Betty won’t hang me. Maybe she’ll just get a good laugh at me being a dweeb. On the bright side…I like the card!

This is Franken Scott. He’s from the Teen Scene Halloween collection from Simply Betty Stamps. Look at him. Trying to be all scary…Not workin’ Scotty! But you are adorable!

I busted out the watercolor markers for this guy…and I like it. The shading is good, and his candy looks yummy. What more do you need?

And there are my caskets. All 11 of them. I counted. With a few boos thrown into the mix. Both of those bad boys are from Inkadinkado.

I must say, I will miss all of the kind words you folks have been leaving me. I really enjoy hearing what you have to say about my work. After October (sniff!) I will be able to leave you all some more love. I just need to catch up with myself. But thank you, for everything. I do hope you will be back to pay me a visit from time to time. :) Now, off you go! You have a lot more hopping to do! Please visit the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to see more with the 11 CASKS, and the rest of the S&S Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spook-tacular day!


hahaha... so not a dweeb because I would have done exactly that! LOVE what you did though. So fitting for cask(et)s. xx

Love your little Frankie guy - so nicely colored - and I wouldn't fret. I've heard that Frankenstien actully stores his liquor in the caskets with the dead parts as a preservative!

Cute card! I think I'd rather have the 11 caskets than the 11 casks any day. Not to worry I will be stalking you way past the month end :)
LOL that sound like something I would do! On the bright side, your card is gorgeous, and your colouring (again) is FAB!
