Ghoulish Greetings

 Hello crafters!  I selected one of my favourite pixied backgrounds that uses Midnight Blue Pixie Powder.  I cut the Bat And Web Border out of black card and glued it to the top of the card.  I cut it again out of black gloss card and cut away the bats and added them to the first die cut.  Next I cut the Vampire die out of milk card.  I used markers to colour his hair, cape, jacket, pants and shoes.  I cut the two ghosts from Frankie's Frame in white and nipped them away and glued them below the border.  I cut Jamie's Pumpkin Border and nipped away three of the pumpkins and stacked them under the ghosts.  I cut the Ghoulish Greetings sentiment in white and glued it at the bottom of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue.
Needed this comical spook inspiration this morning. It's put a smile on my face thank you, another up all nighter with the fur-baby, can't remember how it feels to sleep In bed, can't remember what a full night sleep feels like. I maybe standing down from social media at some point as we have quite a decision to make at some point, I'm finding it hard to put over that I'm happy and everything in the world is perfect when in truth I'm probably as low as I can be. Anyway more creepy smile inducing inspiration please Sue for now lol.
Sorry I'm a 'Debbie downer' it's just that I know that in this beautiful group there'll be someone out there that feels just the same.
So I'll send love to all that read this rubbish and apologise at the same time, I hope everyone feels well, or starting to feel much better than you did xxxx

Steph I am so sorry to read that you are having so many problems with your fur-baby, it must be so worrying for you. Big hugs to you, and please try and stay on the group, I so look forward to your messages and I am sure Sue does too.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good morning Sue, a brilliant card, scary but comical.

Steph, I am so sorry you are feeling the way you are at the moment and not having a good nights sleep doesn’t help either. Take care, I know it is so hard to make decisions with our dogs and cats who are so much a part of the family. Please try and pop into this group if you can

Hi Sue, a great card and I do love your vampire, he is brilliant.

Steph - so sorry you are on a downer, if the decision is about your fur baby then know that we must always do what is right for them and not us. I know I have had to make some of the hardest decisions in my life about my fur babies.
