There was a knock on the door, then another and another. Kevin wondered what would happen if he didn't open it. He is a polite Elf so he and Fifi flung open the door and there... three children. Something wasn't quite right. They weren't singing or handing over cookies. They just grunted 'appy Creepmas' and shuffled in wafting a bit of a strange aroma and a trail of skin flakes as they passed by Kevin. Fifi's whiskers twitched as she started hoovering up the flakes without a hoover if you know what I mean. Urgh!
Kevin knew that it wouldn't be a good idea to have the kids in the kitchen with Sharon as last time they met they freaked her out by following her everywhere she went... whispering mummy.. mummy.. mummmmyyyy.... so Leigh helped Kevin shoo them up to the attic playroom where it wouldn't show if anything dropped off them. Anyway a ghost cat lived up there and would sound the alarm if the kids started to go downstairs before Kevin was able to get rid of Sharon.
There was a Tap tap de tap tap.. tap tap on the door. Someone obviously thought they had come to a speak-easy and there was a code knock to be completed. Kevin stomped down the stairs passing another sherry to Lucy as he passed the living room. Best keep her sozzled, she was quieter that way.
I have been invited to be a Guest Designer at the Dream in Darkness Challenge Blog. I am so pleased and honoured to have been asked and I hope you will visit them for much more creepiness.
As always I used neenah, promarkers, pencils and Craft Artist 2
A speakeasy huh? Secret code? Wonder what's really in those so-called pressies! Or were the tags soaked in dissolved powderes then re-dried, that Reg went berserk and shredded them - a drug-fuelled frenzy? Not to mention all that sherry. Wonder how long before the LEOs drug squad turn u to do a rummage. oooh, mummyyyy, I'm scaaaaared!!!!ReplyDelete
Hi Squiddy we will have to check the tags but I think disaster will befall some of the partygoers. Please wear your comfy shoes we are relying on you....Delete
Drat, no comfy shoes this weekend... will I be safe barefoot? Should I gather up the shreds and felt them into slippers?Delete
LOL! You are one funny lady! 'Should I gather up the shreds and felt them into slippers?' priceless! xxDelete
Those sounds from outside are make me very nervous! This one has us on the edge of our seats and sooo glad Leigh got to help "tend" to those nasty little kids LOL hugs xxReplyDelete
Hi Nan, I don't know what we would do without you. You can take everything in your stride.. ghouls don't upset you and I don't think you're scared of Mr Shadows.Delete
Love the scene and images, Lucy is having lots of the sherry, I think she should share it with me before that bottle is empty!ReplyDelete
Hi Val, does this mean you can keep a close watch on our Lucy? She may start on the cooking sherry which is needed for the Creepmas pudding.Delete
Kevin will have to get an extra bottle of sherry then, must have some in the pudding!Delete
Another great scene and story...ReplyDelete
