Hope I find you all well. A big thank you for your continued lovely comments on my work, means alot and keeps me smiling, so thank you.
I would like to be around a bit more, but I have such alot of Commission work on (and a Holiday at the beginning of November) so not got enough time to do everything!! Hopefully in a few weeks, I will have a bit more time (before "C" is upon us!)
Today the Challenge at Sweet Stampin', it's a spooky one!....Halloween. Our Sponsors are "Crafty Devils".
I must admit I am not a big fan of this night, always feel it's over the top or just an excuse for a bit of mischief, but I realise people with children love it and when I had small children I did actually like it too.....
So onto my card. I bought this Tim Holtz Stamp set in the sale last year and was waiting until now to use it. I do feel it could be used at other times too, but it is designed to be used for Halloween. Love the little line up, so cute in a spooky way. Quite a C&S card, did not want to go over the top with the style, so just stamped and added a Boo with sticky letters.

I am soooooo busy at the moment (don't know how I ever went "out" to work, working here takes all day!)
I love it tho', am not moaning, just need 30 hours a day....That would be good!
Today's make is what I have been busy doing. I had an Autumn Fair at the weekend and did really well, sold lots of my makes, so it's time to make more for the next Fair.
November is MANIC for me, I have a Holiday coming up with Mum and Sister (Benidorm for 7 days), so really looking forward to that (just over two weeks away).
I also have about 6 Fairs, so busy, busy, busy.
This is an Mdf Tissue Box Cover. I adore making these. I start by priming them with gesso, then painting (I chose Storm Grey by do-crafts), then cover the four sides in paper. This is a Craftwork Cards 12x12 Paper (unfortunately not sold anymore, so I only have about 4 sheets left). The lovely centre piece round the hole is cut from an image on a Heartfelt Creations paper pad, I just popped a tonic circle die over the top to cut a hole in it and then cut into all the spiky edges.
The gorgeous Poppy Stamp is by Inkilicious, and I love to use it on this script paper, i add a touch of stickles in the flower centres to finish off.

OMGoodness.......OCTOBER, Yes I did say that right....October.
I honestly don't know, each month goes quicker than the one before, don't like to think how many days there are too Christmas.....Please DON'T tell me!!
So onto today's card for the Challenge this week over at Sweet Stampin' and as it's October the theme is "Autumn" and our Sponsors are Bunny Zoe. Pop over and have a go, Autumn makes are so lovely.
I have not made a card for this months Challenge, decided to make one of these lovely Easel Frames instead. I love these and they sell really well at the Craft Fairs too.
This is made using one of my Wooden Stamps by Hero Arts, lovely is't it. The papers are by Cricut (to go with the Die cutting Machine). The Embellishments are all from my little box of bits!
I used a script stamp to stamp on the frame too.
