Time to Celebrate Poe's Birthday!

Good morning and welcome to the start of the blog hop to show our appreciation of Edgar Allan Poe's birthdate!  The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity has the hop details and will also provide you with the Inlinkz Blog Roll code. So let the fun begin...take a quick look here and maybe leave some love? then go get all the information plus a little bit of surprise info!  I have a door wreath to hang on my back door on the inside to give the old guy a nod each day of the hop :)


I used 3 of the Poe's stamp heads from Carmen's Veranda's Stamps.  Painted up with the golden tones of my Gelatos.  Under the one of the right is a quote that I love by the poet!
A close up of the quote edged with Distress Inks in Old Paper.  The wreath is deco mesh by the way...black and gold.  It is about 12 inches in size.
 One of the new release Zentangle Crows (in 4 different sizes) from Lost Coast Designs painted with dark gold Gelatos and he and his pal show up nicely in real life but I was very disappointed when I got this photo in late (too late to redo my crows ..sad face!)
Hope you have an awesome time at the hop and invite lots of friends!  Remember, you need to go to the Portal to get all of the essential information so you can win a prize!

    1. Thank you, Leigh! I am switching my ravens out with some barely colored with some light, light gray so they will show up and add a few more. All the right stamps were there just a slight mess up in my color selection LOL xx

    1. Thanks Wyvern! Fighting that deco mesh is quiet a hilarious scene when I try to make a wreath LOL On Youtube they can do it without getting tangled up like a mummy! xx
