Cereal and spookiness!!



Well the weekend is almost upon us- time flies.

My friend Galina suprised me this morning by telling me she had nominated my blog in the Dorset Little Blog Awards. I'm always entering their competitions on the side of cereal boxes but never win, but this time I have the support from Galina, the competition queen so who knows lol

If you have a moment and you like my blog, please click this link and click on the vote button for me.


Now.... the inky painty bit.

I made this spooky card using one of the new images from Janet Klein of Stampotique. An image so simple but pure genius I thought when I first saw it. Really made me smile. He is called Cooper. Useful Daisy Daisy also appears again as a dainty little ground filler along with Swirl Stalks in the background. I used a spray web for the black netty effect and number stickers (also available from Stampotique) for something a bit different for me.



If you saw my previous card (in the post below this one) you'll perhaps notice the common factor in that its the other half of the swooshy embossing powder effect I made :0) Two for the price of one as it were :0)

Hope you like it.
Have a good weekend.... x

I still love the swooshy embossing effect very cool, I will hope on over and vote for you.x trace...oh, fab card by the way super cute ghostie! X

Feeling very clever for a pre-coffee blog visit, as I did notice the swooshy embossing :-)
I have voted, and will try to vote again, though I think Dorset has set it up so I can't. Surely those other blogs can't be better than yours? Impossible. Who wants to read about cupcakes and soup when they could see dragonflies and ghosts with liberal doses of swooshy embossing. I think even if you don't win, you should award yourself the runner up prize of a Dorset goodie bag (or the goodie bag of your choice).

A stamp called Cooper? Excellent!! Like the look of that webbing spray too. I think I had some once but we had one explode at work so I chucked it away...

Amazing background, makes me want to lean in closer to the laptop to soak it in.
He is definitely in the Too Cute To Spook category.
