A Little bit of Edgar Allan Poe

Hello everyone,

Yay for Friday,hope you are all okay out there and not fighting over bargains on Black Friday! I know a certain lovely lady is currently busy buying up ALL the crafty bargains...her first name begins with an A....that's all I'm saying :)

This weeks challenge over on the Stampotique blog is use a quote from Edgar Allan Poe....there's quite a few to choose! I narrowed it down to 2,the quote I used and one about art. I was going to do a tag based on the art one but for reason I started doing a heart shape and then remembered,got confused and went with the other quote instead.....I am so all over the place when I craft :/

I rather think 'Lovelyarethesound' looks rather dashing in his Edgar Allan Poe makeover?!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Stampotique Designers,In the words of Edgar Allan Poe,SDC175

Simon Stamp Weds,Anything Goes

Quoth the Raven ,Anything Poes

Fresco paints,pro markers,the background stamp is from Art Journey and of course the main handsome chap is Stampotique.

Have a lovely weekend everyone
