At last.... I managed a halloween card!


Well at long last I can hear some of you say (especially Christine and Lisa!)....  don't know why, but I've never got around to doing a halloween card..... so today, I though why not???



Found this lovely digi image the other day while surfing (as you do..) and loved her (and her mate still to come..) so had to have a little go!  She's is WitchyBoo Betty by Simply Betty Stamps, and I had a ball colouring and glittering her..  The DP's were from a candy win from Emma at CES (who'll be looking after her new little one now and I don't expect her to see this... but thanks Emma!)  The sentiment was computer generated, and the stars from an xcut die (I made a mess of the cutting of the witch layer - so the stars had to be strategically placed!! LOL!  Not much else - I used distress inks to 'wear' the edge of the DP, and a few gems from Stamping Bella a while back finished it off.  Oooh and I drew the cobweb in the corner!

Soo hope you like!  I've not been out today so have taken a bit of time to tidy up my stash of nesties and dies... Hmmmmm methinks I may just have enough! (Note, I didn't say too many!! hehe)

Hugs to all and Happy Crafting

  2. She's lovely Christine, I love the glittery stars. I always find that a tidy up is good as it reminds me what I have actually got. I'm not very good at halloween cards, because we just don't send any. Your's is fab though, cute little witch, I'm not surprised that she inspired you. Annette xx
