Trick or Treat

Hello Everyone,

I think today is going to be beautiful....the wind has gone, the rain  bursts has stopped...oh! the joy of spring, stuffy noses,sneezing,coughs, hot and cold days, and that is just my clients suffering, I haven't got wee dog I'm looking after keeps me on my toes.

I found out yesterday that my neighbours mother who died was only 2 days from being 100....what a shame eh!...they will br home Saturday, so I'm cleaning the insides of their windows today after work, as I finish early on a Wednesday, no kids to pick up from school, so that should entertain their wee dog.

He is so good, I go over at 5.45 every morn with my coffee, and let him out, and he does his business, runs around a bit....well.. fast walks, as he is old..has a biscuit, then back inside till I get home, let him out again...same routine and again at tea time...then pop over at 8pm for a cuddle and tuck him down for the night.

Have a card to share with you, another Halloween, I know, you would think it was my favourite time of the year, but they are such fun and easy to make...

Pumpkin sitting on a wall.

The spider web and pumpkin I found on the net...more leaves from my new spellbinders dies, and the stripe papers were another freebie, I just googled them as I had nothing in purple or orange left.
The brick papers were from a set that I picked up from our emporium 'Crafty Blitz ' thats the best I can tell you.

I printed the spider web onto white card, then inked it with grey inked,added glitter,then cut it out.
Sentiment was computer generated...this was not fancy photography, the sun popped through the window as I shot huh!!

Well thats me done, the G/sons are here this morning,I will take them to school, but Dad will pick them up after school.

Welcome to my new followers, thankyou so much for joining  me.

Off to work...catch you all later.

Hi Chrissy,
Thanks you for becoming a follower, as you could see I don't have many, but I appreciate all. Thank was big! : D
I really like your Halloween card. So many cool elements to it. I like how you mix computer images/sentiments with the brick paper along with (one of my favorites) Spellbinder dies. Those leaves are cool, and I love your found spider and web! I'll be back!

Hi Chrissy. This is truly adorable! I love, love how you have done the spider web. Very pretty indeed. It is a shame that the lady didn't make it to be 100. My grandma died when she was 97 and all of her sisters and brothers were all in the 90's and 100's. I hope that you are enjoying your Spring weather. We are still teatering between Summer and Fall. Oh well, we enjoyed a cool Saturday drinking coffee and being lazy for a few hours before getting into the day. lol. Hugs, Lisa

Very clever design on your card, Chrissy.

Thanks for the tip about Ready-Teddy-Go. I'd never heard of it before. I entered two of my cards that I thought fit the challenge.

Thanks for looking at my cards and your nice comments.
