Spooktacular !!!

Hi guys. 
     As I am not feeling well yet I thought that I would post my card for tomorrow before I head back to bed.  Yes,  I have spent the better part of my day in bed.  I am telling you I can not stand how my chest, nose, ears and throat all feel at the moment.  I got up this morning around 8am and was doing ok.  I even managed to hit a few of my favorite blogs.  Then my Internet went down.  Our cable company was having a problem that lasted over four hours.  Well, after the first hour and the fact that I only had one card made I decided that it was a sign to go back to bed and get some rest. lol...  I hate wasting my time being sick and in bed, (GGGggrrrr!)  but I know sometimes you just are and it truly is the best thing to do at that point. 
     So, I will get right to it so that I can go to bed and hopefully get some rest as tomorrow is back to work for me.  Wish me luck.  As most of you know over on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog this week's  FF Friday theme is  Halloween.  Well, I really wanted to use my Halloween Bride from last year as she didn't see much ink from me.  So I colored her up in a kind of Frankensteins Bride/new age look.  I took some zombie coloring tips from my friend Amy and I was off and running.  lol..  If you haven's already be sure to check out Amy's blog and YouTube videos.  They are both great and I always get so many great ideas from them both.  Thanks Amy.  It was really fun to give her the look of a zombie and play around with some of my older BG papers.  I then dug up (pun intended, lol) some black lace and fibers to make a bow with.  Black buttons and deep purple pearls completed the whole scene I was going for.  I guess it's not to bad for sicky like me.  lol...
     Have a great night everyone and I will talk at you all tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G
