Happy Halloween!

Did you think I'd fallen off the face of the earth...? WOW...it's been a while!! I got caught up with so many things, some crafty some non-crafty and I just couldn't keep up...then I had a lil unexpected admission to hospital...my first stay ever...and hopefully my last!! I am fine now, just home with an unrelated diagnosis I could do without!!!! But c'est la vie...

SO here is the first card I've made for fun in ages!! And she is a doll isn't she...? Have had this lil cutie for quite a while...she was a dream to colour! As you'd expect this time of year she fits into a couple of Halloweeny challenges so I'd like to enter her at Cute Card Thursday and Papertake Weekly. I used a fab sketch fom Sketch Saturday...but of course there is a new one up now!!

I've coloured using the Prismacolors, used papers by MME, Jenni Bowlin and a scrap of October Afteernoon. The embellishments are by Prima (flowers, gems), Making Memories (yummy ribbon), Melissa Frances (rub on) and stickles to finish as always!!

I hope its not as long before my next card, although I am busy next week preparing for my holiday...so we'll see!! bx

P.S The flowersoft triples in volume when it's let out of the pot so I've struggled to get it back in lol!! I do use a piece of paper folded in the middle though.
