Librarian's Choice - Dracula


Thank you for all the blood-curdlingly good Dracula-themed cards. Here are a few that caught my eye.

Sona D's vampire was a scary mouse with gothic - effect embellishments.:

Toni's card was fresh and cute but still pretty spooky: 

Vannessa layered patterns and shapes and topped them off with a beautifully coloured vampire image:

This challenge we have a Visiting Librarian Lynda   who has brought along the children's fantasy classic :The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. 

Four children, who are evacuated to a big house in the English countryside, find a magic wardrobe through which they enter the land of Narnia. Narnia is ruled by a witch and has been in winter for 100 years. 

So, lots of ideas for craft projects ...lions, witches, wardrobes - even beavers make an appearance - and lots of  snow....Maybe you have other ideas? 

Here's how the librarians interpreted the challenge:
