The Halloween Party

Today is the twenty-second day of the 31 Days of Halloween Challenge and Blog Hop, sponsored by Smeared Ink and the Smeared and Smudged forum!

To see everyone who is participating in the blog hop, follow the blog roll on the right.  If you're following the blog roll, you probably got here from Sue's blog and will want to proceed to Leslie's blog after you've stopped here!

In my latest installment of my series A Gibson Girl Halloween, Primrose wants so badly to go to the Halloween party, but will her husband allow it?

He's afraid of what she might get up with her wild friends.

The details:

  1. Gibson girl (and boy!)--from Gibson Girl Illustrations CD-ROM and Book by Dover Publications
  2. Woman in cat costume & woman in witch costume--free vintage images from The Graphics Fairy
  3. Woman in bat/witch costume--from Create with TLC
  4. Man's body (in striped tights)--from plate of rubber by Mary Vogel Lozinak, purchased from her etsy shop (it is actually a pig's body, and I removed the head)
  5. Wolf's head--from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers Halloween UM set 1 at Stamp Francisco
  6. Faber Castell Gelatos
  7. Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Inks
  8. Background papers--found papers and paper from The Paper Studio Kellerkurtz & Company 12 x 12 paper pack
  9. Alphabet--Studio G alphabet set
  10. KimberlyGeneral’s Loew Cornell, and Prismacolor watercolor pencils


  1. Well, I can see why she wants to go. Looks like all kinds of fun. Giggling over removing the pig's head and adding the wolf's. Was thinking he was a bit "portly". LOL Fabulous collection of stamps. Don'tcha just HATE controlling men? xxD

  2. Love your card! The Halloween party looks awesome, no wonder she wants to go and he is so stubborn. Awesome story to go with your awesome images.
    Thanks so much!~kim

  3. That is one concerned hubby!! And I think he should be to tell the truth! Love this series and you colored the images wonderfully!! Delightful card!!

  4. I think he is just trying to act stern. Really he wants to don a costume and attend himself.
    That is an interesting group of friends. They could be trouble.

  5. This is just WONDERFUL!!! what an imagination you have and I love you sharing it with us!! :)

  6. Another superlative Gibson Girl creation. Love the thought bubble and the despondent husband!

  7. LOL, I love it! Brilliant little story scene...mean husband, I sure hope she gets to go!

  8. Love the page for today! Great images.

  9. She should just leave him a home, what a party pooper. Fab page!

  10. Oh it looks so much more fun at the party - she's an old stick in the mud!

  11. Will her husband "allow" it? Yikes! She needs to scoot on over to that party ASAP!!! Leave him at the dog house! Nice job!
