Ultimate creepiness awaits...

Ok, we all know I have the flair for creepiness... so if you don't dig that, please avert your eyes!! Since I only have tonight and maybe tomorrow (if I have time!!) to get my final Halloweenieness out of my system, I thought I'd go out with bang... or 'thud', or an AAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCKKKK... or however you roll :)

The only TAC about this Skull Poem card is the olive & sage cardstocks. I just couldn't resist using my Glimmer Mists again (which you CAN'T see in this photo... dang it!). The skull is from Artful Illusions and the cemetery is from Cow Town. The poem, I think, was a Battle Axe stamp (not sure, got it at a convention!).























In case you can't read it, it says:

"When the deep purple falls over the sleepy walls,
And stars begin to flicker in the sky,
Through the mist of a memory you wander back to me,
Breathing my name with a sigh. --Mitchell Parish"

No, I'm sure Mr. Parish did not intend for his poem to become part of some creepy Halloween card, but it is so eerily beautiful, it seemed fitting.

In case I don't post tomorrow night after all of the trick-or-treaters are gone...
[ And I don't mean that in a 'I just cooked them in my cauldron' kind of way :) ]
have a HAPPY HALLOSCREAM!!
