S & S 12 Days of Creepmas Day 8, MAWT, WW Reminder, DICC, & Forever Friends

I have spent the last 24 hours or so consumed by the horrific events that took place in Newtown, Connecticut yesterday. I cannot imagine what that community is going through right now, and my heart just breaks for them all.  I tried to wrap Christmas gifts last night, but I just kept thinking about the parents who lost their little ones yesterday, and my heart wasn't in it at all.  I keep saying "why?" but the "why" doesn't even matter, does it? 

 The best thing we can all do at a time like this is to love and support each other.  Tell the people you love what they mean to you.  Hug your children a little tighter, and be a little more patient with them.  For that matter, be patient with strangers - remember that you just never know what someone might be going through.  Peace & love to you all.
I have a lot to share with you today, so get comfy!

First - it's Day 8 at Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas!  You should have arrived here from Monique's blog - I have the blog roll over on my sidebar if you get lost.

Here is my offering for today, which I'm also entering into the Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Funny Christmas Cards:

I used a coloring image that I found by Jade Dragonne on deviantART, colored with a mix of pencils/mineral spirits and markers.  "Bah Humbug" stamps are from Just Wordz.  Now head on over to the Incredible Ike!  Happy Hopping!
Next up - we have a reminder post for you at:

I used the Toadstool House from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, colored with Prismacolor markers, pencils & mineral spirits.  DP is from My Mind's Eye, I tied some twine around it and tied a fairy charm on, added the text with my Dynamo Caption Maker.
And last for today - we have a new itinerary challenge for you at:

1. Winter Holiday
2. Silver and Gold
3. Magical Creatures
4. Glitter
5. 3 or more patterend papers
6. Handmade Embellishment
7. Make it a Gift
8. Chalk
9. Bells
10. Non-Craft Item
Our sponsor this time is Stitchy Bear Stamps - here's my creation using #'s 1, 3, 4, and 5:

I used Santa's Workshop, colored with Prismacolor markers, Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.  Dazzling Diamonds glitter is from SU!  Buttons and DP are from my stash - sentiment is from my Dynamo Caption Maker. I am also entering this one into the:
