Day 1---12 Days of Creepmas

Hello and welcome to the first day of the 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop sponsored by Smeared and Smudged.  For those of you who participated in the 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop in October, y'all know how this works.  For those of you who are just visiting for the first time, let me explain.  There will be 12 days between now and Christmas that the Jolly Bloggers will be posting a gothic, horror, or just a little bit off center Christmas card.  You can take up the mantle of Merry Hopper by visiting each blog listed to the right of this post on the days listed for the hop.

Here are the scheduled days of the hop:
Sunday December 1st
Tuesday December 3rd (Smeared Ink Day)
Thursday December 5th
Saturday December 7th (Smeared Ink Day)
Monday December 9th
Wednesday December 11th
Friday December 13th (Smeared Ink Day)
Sunday December 15th
Tuesday December 17th (Smeared Ink Day)
Thursday December 19th
Saturday December 21st
Monday December 23rd (Smeared Ink Day)

Each person on the blog roll will have a project posted on these days.  Make sure to stop on by and leave some love for each one.  The complete list of rules and sponsors can be found on the Smeared and Smudged group.

For my first project, I chose to use the master of the macabre...Poe.  Yes, I know, most people don't consider him as part of Christmas, but remember, this is Creepmas.

This image is from Ike's World.  I love it.  It's my first ever Edgar Allen Poe image.  The background paper is also designed by Ike.  I colored him with BIC Markers and printed off the sentiment from my computer.  It's a very simple card as I wanted Poe to be the focus.

I hope y'all enjoyed your first visit to my blog for the 12 Days of Creepmas.  Make sure to hop along the rest of the blogs to see what my blogging friends have for you.  I'll see you back here on Tuesday, December 3rd for another Creepmas card.
