Rainy Friday and Halloween Art

Its a very rainy morning here and also quite chilly. I haven't been a very good blogger bud this week but I haven't felt the best either. Sinus stuff, love the Fall but my allergies do not like it at all. Yesterday I had the beginnings of a ear ache and its hurting even more today so I am staying home and keeping warm and dry. I have some ear drops that help the pain but if it don't clear up then I will be going to the doctor.
I got up early this morning and played on my Photoshop and created the Creepy Collage above. I have finally downloaded a zillion more brushes on the new puter to replace the ones I lost on the old one. I Love playing with the brushes.
I have been in several Halloween swaps this fall. Below are a couple of Halloween postcards that I recieved and I really love these two. I have them in a little card holder above my kitchen sink so I can see them alot.

I think they are really cool! I have to get to feeling better by tomorrow as Mom and I are going to our stampers group. We have not been in over a year and they are having a special Christmas Card making group tomorrow. We are also taking a couple of new friends with us too. A sweet lady that we have known from our Yahoo group has moved close to us. She lived in California but her and her husband moved out here to live with her son. Tomorrow will be the first time we meet her in person and I can't wait. Of course I will take lots of pictures.
I hope everyone has a good friday!

It's a good day to be inside, but so sorry to hear you are sick. Not the way to enjoy a rainy day, with an earache!

Love your digital collage! So beautifully spooky! I would never be able to do that! Amazing art!

How cool you will get to meet Charlotte! I'll look forward to pics. Give her a hug from me.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry that you suffer from allergies at this time of fun at all! Hopefully your ear ache will clear itself up sooner than later!! I've had ear infections before and I don't wish them on anyone.

I just love collage you created with's gorgeous. I still haven't experimented very much with the brushes, will have to take time to do so. The two postcards you received are delightful, I can see why you'd want to be able to look at them all the time:-)

Have a fun time with the Stampers group, can't wait to see what Christmas cards you come up with! xoxo

I like your photoshop art. And the Halloween cards are cool too.
I hope your allergies get straight soon... My husband always looks forward to the snow for that reason!
