Hello lovely bloggers,

Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate it. We will have a trick or treat in our complex tomorrow and I have to be ready to receive like 50 kids. I did not buy candy, bought sweet wafers instead to help them preserve their teeth. Lol. I know they won't be very pleased with me.

Here is another quick card to show you made with my clear stamps from Inkadinkadoh. I have coloured in the image with Prisma pencils. The sentiment and little leafy border is also from Inkadinkado I think.  The edges have been sponged with rusty hinge and the card stock is actually a negative. The polka dotted ribbon is from my stash.That little flower came from Karin and I have used some pressed stalks (or whatever they are called) that were lying scattered around on my table.  The centre of the flower has been adorned with a pearl sent by Lynn. Not too sure if I like the arrangement of the flower and this dry stuff. Any way here it is.

Down below is Aleeza's ex-teacher from her previous school all dressed up with face paint. She is a professional face painter. Sorry that this photo quality is not the best as it was taken on her phone.

I will enter this card in: - always anything goes

Catch you later,
