31 Days of Halloween - Day 1




Welcome!!! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Edgar Allen Crow. I will be your host for the 31 Days of Halloween here on Alex's blog. Now, occasionally, we might ask her for some details, but it will be primarily my job to share her creations and the 'how-to' details. I know you are going to just LOVE what she has in store.

For Day 1, I am pleased to show you the card Alex made for the Fairy Knoll Challenge #18 "Haunting Halloween".  She used the image Halloween Cupcake Fairy.  Now I realize some of you are saying "how is THIS haunting".  Have you ever eaten a cupcake with a spider as big as you are?  I f not haunting, then certainly intimidating!



Alex has told me that the final design on this card was one of those happy accidents you crafters claim to have.  When putting the card together, she almost put the image on upside down after placing the ribbon, but not the bow.  She decided she liked it, put it down and added the bow at an angle instead of straight on and here you are!  Just for good measure, there are stickles on the spider body, cupcake frosting and Fairy's wings. On an educational note, Alex's young nephew has informed me that a spider with one less leg (thanks to the nephew BTW) is still considered an arachnid even though it no longer has 8 legs. 




Now, I will leave you with the song that Alex has been singing the first couple lines to for the last several weeks ever since she began planning for this 31 Days of Halloween event. It has been making me a bit crazy, but perhaps you will like it. Enjoy!



Happy Halloween!
Edgar
