Day 11 of 12 Days of Creepmas and Playing Catch Up

Hello there! So, as per usual this month, I am way behind in posting projects. Let's start with the ones that I should have posted yesterday, then I'll do my 11th day of Creepmas.

This 80's Fabulous tag is for the latest Chromatic Craze challenge. I love these neon colors that Laura has challenged us with this month. I plan on using this tag on a future scrapbook page for my daughter (you can see I painted her nickname on it), as she wears these colors pretty often.

The purple embossing powder I used is metallic and fabulous. I love the sheen on it. Next up is Dilly Beans.

This week's challenge is Winter or Christmas. I went with Winter. Isn't this snowman a cutie? He's colored with Spectrum Noirs.

It's tough to see, but the paper I used for the snowflake punch (Martha Stewart. Again.), has pretty chunks of a thin glitter in it. It's subtle, but when it catches the light, it is so pretty.

This last piece is for Creepmas. It uses another fun Dilly Beans image. This is Martin. And I love him. I have used him many times because...for a monster...he really is so versatile.

I colored Martin with my Spectrum Noirs as well, and I watercolored the background. The sentiment I made myself with a Just Rite Alpha stamper. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Wiola, my project for Day 10 used paper from Basic Grey that already had that marbled look to it. It's from the old Color Me Silly Collection, which I believe has long since been retired.

WOW, Alison! You are on a roll. All of the projects ROCK. Love the neon tag. Your DB is the cutest (I've GOT to get that punch) and of course Martin is beyond cool. Love the sentiment and torn DP on the last two. xxD

Alison, these are fantastic. I love them all. I really like the colors on your 80's tag. Poor Martin looks tired already.
Martin is adorable! And I LOVE the Merry Whatever sentiment - I may need to adopt that one!

Three great projects Alison. You have been very busy in the craftroom. My favorite is the Martin card. Love the smudgy sentiment. Merry Whatever indeed!
wow these are soooo cool! I totally want that MS border punch!!! And so loving the tearing of the paper that you do. I love the way you have done the sentiment as well for Martin! Very clever!
Gorgeous tag and snowman card and as for Martin...both him and the sentiment, just perfect for Creepmas.
