Our Quest this time is inspired by the story 'Some Words With A Mummy' - Poe's dig at the obsession that the Victorians had for Egyptology and stuff. Really very funny !! It was quite a change for him to write thusly :-)
Here's a little quotette :-D ........... .
"Come to me, by all means, my dear good friend, as soon as you receive this. Come and help us to rejoice. At last, by long persevering diplomacy, I have gained the assent of the Directors of the City Museum, to my examination of the Mummy --- you know the one I mean. I have permission to unswathe it and open it, if desirable. A few friends only will be present -- you, of course. The Mummy is now at my house, and we shall begin to unroll it at eleven tonight".
We also have exciting news for you - the very talented SHELL has accepted our invitation to join our DT at Quoth The Raven and she has done the most amazing first project for us. You just have to go over and see :-D It's awesome and creppy/funny at both the same time :-D LoL
Now, this week I had a silly stupid idea put to me by my other half, as I was a bit stressed and short of time and my Mojo was definitely NOT playing the game for this Quest. I laughed when he suggested it and had pictures flashing in my mind straight away, so came down to draw. This is what I ended up with :-D
Also lurking in there is a wonderful little digi Mummy that I bought yesterday from the amazing SPYDER. She's got some fine digis - pop over and see - and she also does freebies on her Blog.
I used a border and picture of Poe from the Web. I also found a Heiroglyph alphabet but I wouldn't be too sure on it being accurate !! LoL Any guesses as to what it says ????
Whoever gets it first will receive a little Prize from me :-) Just drop me a quick email. x
So anyways - here it is.... Click on Pic to enlarge....
Sorry the quality is not brilliant... my camera is still mucking about and on it's last legs. New one is arriving by Donkey mail !!! :-(
I hope you will come over and have a look at the wonderful creations my fellow Minions of The Master have made to show you and also play along with us :-) This is a Month long Quest, so you have plenty of time. If you would like to read the full Poe story, please go HERE.
