C is for Cupcake and Creepy: Day 12 of 31 Days

Welcome to Day 12 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today, I have a cupcake to share with you. It's sweet....trust me....Mwahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!

I started off with the Spider Cupcake from A Day for Daisies. I colored it up with my watercolor markers.

Awwww.....he's actually kinda cute! So I remembered, as I was trying to figure out how to complete the card, that I had a great stamp set from Bam POP! That has a cupcake, and the sentiment, "C is for cupcake." I thought it was almost perfect...but not quite Halloweenie enough. Then I remembered the "creepy" stamp that I used the other day. Ahhhhh! Grabbed my "&" symbol, and now the sentiment was perfect!

I just had to use that fab chevron paper again. I'm entering this card in the current A Day for Daisies challenge, which is "All Sugared Up". This was a quick ad easy card. Tomorrow's is a bit more elaborate. Be sure to check in! And also be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

S is for sweet creepy cool cupcake *U* Love the colors.
I don't usually think of A Day for Daisies as being creepy--but this is fantastic! Perfect use of the senti and the "creepy" addition.
