BOO!!!!

I was going to start my blog post with the words "happy Sunday everyone" but then this day can never be a happy day again..... My thoughts go out to everyone affected by the most horrendous man made disaster known simply as 9/11.

I would like to share a card today made with my first ever simply sassy girly stamp - isn't she adorable! I can confidently say I'm going to become a sugar addict.

I think I'll make another one of these (maybe in another colour) then I can give them to my two eldest girls for halloween.

I've used a fab sketch from the sugar bowl, which has the added option of using up your scraps. I chose to use up my offcuts from my Crafters companion enveloper paper pack with is all different colours and textures in a purple theme.

I coloured my image using my promarkers and flexmarkers, I used spellbinders to cut my cordinations card which I then sanded and inked, I also used an old flourish stamp to make it all look pretty. The flower is from WOC and the sentiment is handwritten as I had no Halloween ones at all (poor me boo hoo).

Finally I added a few gems and pins then decorated the inside to match ( sounds like a lot of work for a tiny 5x5 card doesn't it)

So that's all for now, thanks for visiting and any comments you may leave (I luuuuuurve getting them) xx cara xx
