Don't Bite the Hand that Feeds You !

Hi,  The Gingersnaps Challenge this week is to use Black and Greys........following on the Horror theme this month, but for my DT piece I cheated a bit and used a touch of blood as well.........oooh naughty naughty........


Pretty gruesome am sure you will agree .............lol

We went to Cambridge today, primarily to visit The Fitzwilliam Museum which has loads of artifacts plus an enormous Art Gallery; then we called in at Waterstones, this bookshop has 4 floors, its enormous plus a huge Art section.  Needless to say I bought some fabulous art books..........but meanie, that's my husband won't let me have them until my birthday.......and to think this man loves me.................methinks he should be careful as I wasn't born on Halloween for nothing................lol

Hoping you will join us over on the Darkside at Gingersnaps this month.  If you click my sidebar it will take you directly to Gingersnap Creations and you will see some wonderful inspirational pieces and you can enter yours, unless of course you are a scaredy cat............

Off  to look at all your blogs after I've watched 'Midsummer Murders'.......Thank you for visiting me and hope you were not too scared by my Hand................  Have a great week and take care.  Hugs Annette xx

EEK! That is one scary hand, my friend! What a fabulous creation - you are so talented! Thanks for sharing. Now, Mr. Meanie should let you at least LOOK at the art books - we're talking 5 (FIVE!!!) full days of torture when you know they are there, and you can't have them! Maybe he could give you one each day? Have a good day!
