EHAG Creative Art Challenge ~ Hallomas PC 9

Here is a preview of my submission for EHAG's "Crossing over the Moon" Creative Art Challenge. The members of EHAG (Eclectic Halloween Artist Group) were given the task of creating a Halloween/Xmas themed art piece. I have been doing this since after Halloween, and will continue my "winter" themed postcards until New Years. This piece is titled "Haunted Gingerbread House" and was inspired by vintage German Xmas gingerbread...the kind you can eat! Enjoy! '-)

My eBay auction and all other "Crossover the Moon" pieces will start on Sat. Nov. 24, 2007. Type the acronym EHAG in your item search, and check out all the talented EHAG artisan's goodies!

This eBay auction ends on Sat. Dec. 1, 2007.
