Who goes there?

Sooo... how big a bummer was it not to have a new episode of Glee to watch last night? I know, right?!
The only thing that lifted my spirits was seeing the previews for next week's big Rocky Horror Halloween special... now that looks FUN! It's not like I'm a huge RHPS fan who goes to sing-a-long viewings or anything but I really can't wait to see what the Glee cast does with it!

Speaking of Halloween... I've got another Halloween card for the new Lil Lolita Boutique challenge this week. We've got a sketch for you again and it's a great one! I decided to blow Vampire Lilith up to 'big head' size but I left her tall and narrow because I wanted her to look like she is opening the front door of her haunted castle. I even used a wood grain background stamp to make the doors look 'authentic' and used the brads as doorknobs. The little doorknocker is some crazy embellishment that I'm sure I got as a freebie in an order years ago and now I'm glad I hung onto it. LOL!
I know it looks a bit plain compared to my usual cards but I had a vision of this scene and I didn't want too much to get in the way of that. I mean, can't you just hear her saying "Velcome..." in a low sexy voice? ;)

Well I hope you get a chance to play along in all the fun at LLB this week, as always Kellie has a great prize from the Tickled Pink store up for grabs. So pull out that Lil Lolita stamp or digi and get crackin'! Supply list:
