Howling at the Moon....

Hello friends........it is time......
This year I decided to craft as well as create with words, so here is a short story for you, and some "blooms" for Magaly :D

MOON DAISIES  by me

In daylight the Daisies looked so innocent and pure.
The fact that they were growing in the garden of a creepy old wreck of a house mattered not.
Abigail planned to return late in the day and visit with these sweet little posies.

As many of us are aware, our days seldom run to plan, and Abigail didn't manage to visit the Daisies until it was well past bedtime.
"Maybe they are Moon Daisies?" she mused, "...and will look even prettier after dark."
Abigail wrapped a warm shawl around herself and headed to the large meadow-like garden in front of the creepy old house.

By the time she arrived, the Moon was high over head, and she could see the Daisies had turned and contorted to face their Goddess.
Abigail felt a shudder of excitement as she removed her slippers to creep through the downy grass, her intention not to disturb these precious Angels in their worship.

It wasn't until she was halfway across the garden that Abigail began to sense that something just didn't feel right.... and it was only one more step before she knew it wasn't.

The stinging on her toes she had thought caused by nettles ...  well it is to expected when walking barefoot through a stranger's garden. But now, as she looked closer, she could just make out the glimmer of tiny eyes and teeth.

Something was snapping at her heels....

Pulling at the hem of her dress....

Dragging her to the ground!

Fighting the panic that was threatening to overwhelm her, and scolding herself for her own carelessness, Abigail struggled to her knees, only to find herself face to face with the Moon Daisies.....

By daylight the Daisies looked so innocent and pure...

By the light of the Moon... they did not!!!
mwahahahahahahaha.....

My addition to a plain sketch book.
Daisies cut using Spellbinders Gerber Daisy Die D Lite
Papers used: My Minds Eye "Halloween {scary sparkles} and Best Creations Halloween collection.

Why not pop over to Magaly's blog and check out the creepy goings on
Enjoy :D

  5. I actually cackled and ran in circles after I finished reading "Moon Daisies." You just know how to make me happy, don't you?

    Gina, you built suspense in such a seamless ways... When I read "something just didn't feel right.... and it was only one more step before she knew it wasn't..." I swallowed hard.

    Hoooowwwwllll!!!

  8. I bet the Moon Daisies would definitely keep pests out... two-legged and four-legged. Every witch needs some of these in her garden. :D

  13. Moon Daisies. I love the evil fairy-book style of these little beasties. I see a line of "Moon Daisy" greeting cards...? You could send them to people you like and people you don't like in the same turn! =)

  16. The glimmer of tiny eyes and those sharp little teeth, woohoo, and Forced to her knees to be exposed to the real identity of those wicked moon daisies, I love LOVED this tale, and the vision you created in my head as well as your 'moon daisy' cover... BTW Gina, I had eloped with Casper, but then this little bitch witch, the 'not so good' Wendy came along... Dropped like a hot potato, not a ghost of a chance with the (over) friendly Casper after that! Looks like I may be able to blog more often now ;)
