Jeepers Creepers...

 
Here she sits upon her throne,
broom in hand
and all alone.
The clock chimes twelve
by light of moon
into the witching hour she will delve.
Tricks and treats
she must complete
gathering items for recipes.
Sweet and precious with baby cheeks
but danger lurks
don't be deceived!
With child like giggle,
she comes as a friend.
victim you'll be, eyeless you'll scream.
Plopped in a jar, she watches them jiggle.
Heed this warning, one and all...
On all Hallows Eve
lock your doors, seal your windows,
because this little girl
becomes a witch in the end!
             ~Lisa~
 
GAK! If that's not the most disturbing poem I've ever written, I'm not sure what is...BUT, it's all in the fun spirit of Halloween for the current challenge happening over at Our Creative Corner.  Our most magnificent Marcy is hosting this week and she wants us all to get decked out in costumes and masks! Well, no, you don't actually have to wear a mask, but you DO have to use the
 Masking Technique.
She'd also like it to incorporate your scariest Halloween creation!
 
 
Here is the inside of my card where I've masked the rocks, trees, leaves and moon and little witch.  The card itself isn't spooky, but figured writing a poem that utilizes elements I've stamped might amp up the creepy factor.
 
Please join us at Our Creative Corner with your masks and Masking Technique for another hauntingly good challenge.  While you're there, beware and use caution as you venture through the dark and eerie halls, for my teammates have surprises lurking around every corner!
Mwahahahahaaha.....
 
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
Lisa xx

Oh Lisa, that poem is AWESOME!! I remember when I first saw the movie, The Exorcist, I couldn't go into my son's room at night alone! So this brings back those creepy memories! Your card couldn't be any more perfectly masked out - and love that table in front of the window cut-out! Such a cool card, as always! I'm glad you had fun with this! Hugs, Marcy xo

That's how they get you! They look all sweet and innocent, then 'BAM' the head starts doing 360* and they go all crazy on you! Hmm...just realized that this could also describe a teenage daughter too...Coincidence, I think not! I'm thinking Butterfly is on to something!!
LOVE the canning jar preserving the eyeballs and your masking technique is wonderful!! Loving the webby/slimy background on the card front too! You're so talented it's SCARY!!!!!
