 Hi every one.  It has been a couple of days since blogging and it is 1 -  I have not felt all that well and 2 - no mojo.  So what I did to deal with the mojo I spent even more money on Halloween stamps of course from Lavinia.  Now I don't do Halloween at all but thought these cardswould be good for my grandchildren, well 2 of them so far, 6 more to go lol. Think I will give these to the boys due to the spiders, witches for the girls perhaps.  

I was inspired by Jo Rice for these, in fact almost the same - sorry Jo for copying, well almost sorry as I loved yours and can't blame a girl for trying lol.

Loved the card Heidi the Yorshire Crafter made using the castle and Maka, so guess what ended up buying them and will end up trying that one out pretty soon.  But for now just dipping toe in water with Halloween. 

So here is what I used (which I have to say were not as many supplies were used for these)

Lavinia stamps Fairy web, Wizardry and crow set

Spider found in stash

Moon mask

Nocturne Versafine clair and Graphite elements

Aqua shimmer glitter gloss

Black fineliner and sharpie.

Decorated envelopes

and this one

and combined just for the sake of it lol

Thank you once again for coming on over to see me

  2. This is truly a stunning stamp. And so perfect for a Halloween card. This raven is so obviously watching what's going on. And these little spiders look so pretty, but also a little scary. I love making it in black and white. It looks so effective.
    Thank you for sharing this awesome Everybody Art Challenge card.
