"The Tell-Tale Heart"

Good Afternoon Everyone! How is your weekend going? Mine is pretty good, it's raining; but can't complain to much! Soon the snow will come and then the cold, so will be satisfied for right now! Today I have a picture 8 X 10 to share with you. I know it is not in a frame; I thought I had one more black one in that size, but nope I don't. So it will wait on getting framed! LOL!!! This picture is for the Smudgy Antics Challenge... POE ME! Blackdragon has created some of her beautiful creations as the prize... they are awesome, so I just knew I needed to get a creation finished and in for a chance at winning them!!! Be sure to check the NEW RULES that are on the Smudgy Antics Blog about entering. I am running a bit behind as the challenge will be closing at 2pm CST. So I need to get my butt in gear to make the deadline! Please be sure to check it out on Monday morning for the NEW challenge for the week! Okay on with my creation...

Since you are not able to read the passages that I have used I will go ahead and list them here...

The Tell-Tale Heart
By Edgar Allan Poe

Under The Mad Eyes

TRUE -nervous -very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad?

Under The Pocket Watch

A watches minute hand moves more quickly than did mine.

Under The Skull

If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body.

Under The Cracked Heart With Wings

"Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! -tear up the planks! here, here! -It is the beating of his hideous heart!"

This is wonderful Sara. Love the combination of items and sayings. VERY creative.
ok- have to admit, when I was reading "Under the mad eyes" the Mrs. Potatohead packing hubby "and your angry eyes..." ran through my head. :)
