The Hangman's Tree...

...or... the Smashing Pumpkins... **groan** I know, I know... I have been wanting to use that name ever since I got converted to all things Hallowe'eny earlier this month... is it really only a day til Hallowe'en??? I got a "joke" on my moby last night... a lovely kind... *ahem*, friend said that they were having a Hallowe'en party and would I do them a favour and come around and look through the window to scare the... erm... *moderates the text to non nawty words* pants off them.... cheek of it... I will be faaaaaar too busy... flying on my broomstick and cackling ROFL



Anyways... all that waffling again... today's offering is... a double whammy... it is my day for The Artistic Stamper Creative Team and I am going to enter this piece into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge.. .which this week is Spookay. So... all the deets about how I maded this piece are HERE - with more pics too... but please, tell me here... what do you think of my pumpkins? *no matter how many times I try to type that, it still sounds vaguely rude!!* I loooooove my pumpkins... and my Fly Agaric too... oooh, yes indeedily, I got very carried away with this clay modelling and made some toadstools... ah, yes, which reminds me... did I ever tell you I used to have a boyfriend who was a toadstool? Yes, he was.. a really... fun~gi!!! (oh dear, shall I go and sit in the corner ROFL)





I have to admit... the pumpkins did have a little teeeeeensy bit of help... my hands aren't what they used to be and that Fimo stuff can be a bit hard to get pliable... so in stepped my hero Grim, to assist in the Fimo neading stage. I stank the house out cooking the pumpkins and toadstools too... I don't that that those whizzy halogen ovens are the right thing to be cooking Fimo in, but it worked... mind you, saying that... reading back what I have just typed... mmm, maybe those fumes got to my head!! I have to say... THANK YOU to Joanne... for sending me the FAB skelingtons... as soon as I saw them I knew that they would be playing with Art Parts *speaking of which - I LURVE these!!!*... and also Lynn Stevens for helping me to release my inner witch :O)) Right, time for bed... late night tonight *gotta make sure the old broomstick is ready and waiting... and... just for Linda... which witch is the witchy which witch?* ;o)) Thanks for looking and have a very goodly weekend... oh and... don't forget.. new Sunday Stamper theme will be here tomorrow... I haven't got a clue what the theme is... but I will make it a nice one LOL TTFN

Oooh! I'm first! OMG Hon, this Art Parts piece is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I just LOVE it! I love how you used the picket fence around the bottom of the..erm... tree. Oh, and the joke about the fun-gi... baaaaaddd...boooooooooo.... but I laughed right out loud when I "got it". HEE! You're not right... which is why we get along so well. LOL. Oh... and... 28 days!!! Hugs, Els xx
