Anyone seen my broom???


How are you!  I hope you are having a great weekend!  

It's a late post from me (it's nearly 2am as I'm typing this!!) but I can't sleep as I have spent most of the afternoon and evening in bed with a monster migrane and now I can't settle, so have given up and come to type up the post that I meant to do yesterday but the migraine got it the way!  It also would have meant removing my eldest son from the computer, which is like trying to get a limpet off of a rock, so I left HB in charge of the kids, and took myself off to a darkened room to try to shake the worst of it off...  as I said I succeeded, but now am not sleepy!!

Ah well, every cloud has a silver lining, so it means I'm able to share this little cutie a bit earlier than I otherwise would have done!

We don't really celebrate Halloween here, but it's a darn good excuse to make a few cards!  I also got busy distressing all of the papers and CS, nothing like a bit of distressing to relieve tension :-D.  There is so much inspiration from so many challenge blogs who are doing the whole Halloween/Autumn/Fall thing at the moment too, that it would be rude not too join in!  Special mention must be made to Pals Paper Arts who have the most amazing picture of a decorated doorway and porch!!

The papers are a right assortment, there's Bo Bunny, Making Memories and Rusty Pickle in there.  The Prima flower has a sparkly brad in the centre.

I saw this image over at The Paper Shelter  and just love her!!  Love all the stuff lost in her slightly askew Marie Antoinette (sp??) style hair :-D.  The broom especially makes me laugh, years ago I used to work with someone who used to pull her hair up and then shoved pens in it when she needed her hands free, and by the end of the day there was about 5 pens buried in there!!

As ever she's coloured with copics, and I have added Glossy accents to the spider, her batty necklace and the potion pot in her hair.

Right I suppose I'd better go and try to sleep otherwise I'm going to be grumpy tomorrow!

Before I do, please can I enter these challenges
The Paper Shelter - Animals (hope the cat in her hair counts)
Simon Says Stamp - Halloween/Goth
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Halloween

Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow... or later today!!
