Good afternoon everyone. I am a little bit late with my post today, but I do have a really good excuse. Work is absolutely manic at the moment we have been a member of staff down for nearly 6 weeks now and I don't every seem able to catch up at the moment. I work as part of a small but very busy MIS team for a local council and I don't think we have every been so busy! Our team has been cut from 4 to 1.8. Any way enough moaning there are far more interesting things to talk about like the fact that its challenge time again at Diva's by Design. We have a brand new sponsor for this challenge in the form of Stamp and create.
Our theme for this challenge is

I struggle with Halloween cards so this was quite a difficult card for me

I have used a Make it Crafty Digi called Buttons. I really wasn't sure how to
colour this one up. At first I went in with the Copics but the paper that I was
using just would not let me blend! so next I broke out the Prisma's. After a lot of struggles
I was finally happy with the image but what was I going to do with the card base?
I decided to keep it simple at first and just used some My minds eye Halloween papers
on black card. I cut a black fancy frame with my Cricut but it wasn't scary enough so aft a quick visit to the pound shop I came back with a large bag of assorted spiders. I dry brushed them with some gold nail polish and stuck them to the frame. To finish off I added an assortment of black and clear bling and some glitter.

Well what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by

Jayne this is out of this world good. I might have to copy some of your ideas if you promise not to sue me and I promise to give you credit. Where have I been? I know I follow you by e-mail. I am sorry I have been absent so much!

Jewellery making, creativity and a whole lot of rambling.................

So its been quite some time since I posted anything here and although I still love card making I haven't made anything for about 3 years...
