12 days of christmas day 10 and smudgy Antics challenge Gothic Christmas

This weeks challenge at Smudgy Antics has a christmas theme so I can cheat a bit and use my DT project as my day 10 of the 12 days of Christmas also :-). Anyway the theme is Gothic Christmas or Wicked Santa or Wicked Christmas, I chose the Gothic theme.

Here is my card:

I used Watchful Eye again he is one of my favourite Smeared Ink digi's I coloured the little fellow using my good old colouring pencils and some glitter gel pens. Then put him on some christmas paper and to give it a Gothic feel I cut out a black candle using my Cricut machine (31 oct. cartridge)and added some metal corners,red glitter roses and some black leaves.

I think it turned out fine, and send this as my christmas card to friends of us(Ronald & Christa hope you like it).
I hope you will come and play with us at Smudgy Antics Challenge Blog this week, there are a lot of themes to choose from .......

The blog roll of the other jolly bloggers is in my side bar, go and check their awesome projects out, you will love it.

Today I made one of the 12 tags of christmas by Tim Holtz that I missed, this is my version of tag 9.

Because I don't have the dies Tim used for this tag I used my Cricut to cut the lantern (mini monsters card) and the letters (happy hauntings card, spooky font.

And I made a birthday card for Rianne, she turned 14 and loves fashion and sewing, so I made her this (happy birthday Rianne!)

Hope you enjoyed this ( very long) post and see you again for day 11 of the 12 days of christmas on dec. 21.
