While I was away my new stamps from Lavinia arrived - my prize for winning their August blog challenge. So with Halloween not being that far away I thought I'd make a card along those lines. This is not something I've done before, but thought it would be fun to send my grandsons a Halloween card as I know they like to get dressed up and do a bit of trick or treating at friend's houses.
I used the layout from Sketch Saturday and the gorgeous Willow the Witch stamp and added some sparkle magic to her staff and fingers as she mixes up her bat potion. I found some Halloween paper lurking in my magazine freebies box and cut the sentiment from a cuttlebug die left over from when my oldest son had a Halloween themed thirtieth birthday party. I then added a spider on a sparkly thread for good measure and my first ever Halloween card was done.

LSNED: Day 9 - Thinking about my Nana and how she influenced my love of fabrics and taught me the basics of sewing which I'm now putting to good use with other newer skills in my patchwork. Lesson learnt - to value old skills and update them occasionally.
Day 10 - thinking about all the reasons why I love Ragdale. Lesson learnt - food is always best when someone else cooks.
So that 's me caught up with LSNED - phew! thanks for looking.
