Run Away & Hide!!

Arghhhhh, if you're a regular visitor here at The Camels Hump, you will know I always try & enter the monthly progressive challenge over on Facebook for Sweet Pea Stamps. Well, when I received my free image this month I really wished I'd given it a miss....I HATE clowns, I know a lot of people do, but its not just clowns its people dressed up in costumes I freak out. I've always had it in my head that if you don't know who they are, they could do anything & get away with it!!! Yeah I know a bit weird but thats how I roll lol....I remember being about 8 mths pregnant with our Danni & we had free tickets to a special open day thing at Alton Towers, no point in wasting them so we went. Obviously I couldn't go on anything, but had a fab time laughing at Nige. Well we went for a walk around the little gift shop village & this 7 foot tall Peter Rabbit person thing was standing outside a shop. He moved to come & say hi......I screamed & ran (well wobbled lol) whoever was in the costume thought it was funny so chased me....mad Nige's day seeing me being chased by & giant Peter Rabbit. Got some free Peter Rabbit teddies tho for baby lol so was all good in the end!!!

Anyhoos enough rubbish yappin' on with  my creation. I decided to try & do half cute & half kinda zombie, what do you think? I haven''t put it on a card, as Katie wants it for her wall...lol strange child!!

See not so scary clown now, just a scary zombie lol!!!

Oh wow… that must have looked strange Shell… you being 8 months pregnant and chased by giant Peter Rabbit!!... can't get that image out of my head now! Lol
Ah clowns! now my daughter is the same… she absolutely hates them… remember when she was about seven, I took her to see the laughing man at Blackpool…well she was not amused... totally horrified!! I used to love him as child... but she really didn't like it! Lol.
LOVE your card though… I think this is one of the cutest clowns that I've ever seen… you've coloured it beautifully! :-)
Hope you have a good evening!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

Loving the 'spookiness' of this - you've really captured the theme of our current challenge! Thanks for joining in the fun with at The Pencil Cases Colouring Challenge and our theme of 'Dark Colours'. So sorry I'm late commenting on your entry! Yvonne (DT)

Oh, Shell, being chased by a 7 foot tall Peter Rabbit is bad enough, but to have Nige standing there laughing..... Poor you!

I think you've done brilliantly with your zombie clown, your colouring is so effective! Zombies are definitely less scary than clowns!

I hope you're feeling better today. Take it slowly, hun, one day at a time. *gentle hugs*

love Mags B x
