Macabre Monday - It's a Love/Hate thing!

It's time for a new Monthly Macabre Monday challenge at the Haunted Design House blog, and this month's theme is "It's a Love/Hate Thing"
This means you can enter a piece that's about love, or a piece that's about hate, OR you can use something you love or something you hate. And, lol, being a curmudgeonly sort, I've ignored the "love" options :P I hate not being able to colour in very well. I couldn't do it when I was using paper products and frankly, I'm not much better at it digitally. And, no, this isn't a self-pitying plea for sympathy. I'm truly in awe  of people who can colour images so beautifully with shades and highlights and lowlights, and I'm fully aware that mine is "adequate" in comparison. I need to find some tutorials and then practice, practice, practice. This is also a preemptive strike against the flood of cutesie Valentine projects that Blogland will be subjected to over the next few weeks.  Why isn't there a Valentine equivalent of "Bah, humbug!"? Ho hum. You can find me in the grumpy corner. :P Which is probably why I LOVE these Grumpies from Smeared Ink so much. :P See, there is a little bit of love, even in the midst of my rants!

These are the challenges I'd like to enter
Smudgy Antics - February Anything Goes with a Smeared Ink image
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - Snarker's Choice. I've gone for A is for Anti-Valentine this time
Not Just Cards - #12 Anything Goes
