I have always loved these ghosts from the Clearly Besotted stamp and die set "Fright Night" and I had this vision of all the ghosts poking their heads out to say hello !  I love the googly eyes !!

You can see a list of everything I used below !

Holly Berries

What a wet and dreary day ! Perfect for card making !

I've been having a play with another stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps in collaboration with Simon Says Stamp and this one is called "Holly Berries".

I made this card using the same technique as my previous card i.e. using distress markers on watercolor card.  I used the new dies by Simon Says Stamp called "Bundle of Stitched Shapes" to cut the watercolor card.  I love the stitched effect around the outside.

Have you seen that Simon Says Stamp have released some new ink colours ?  I have used a new one called "Sparrow" on this card, a lovely brown/grey colour, gorgeous.

I wanted to add the effect of falling snow so I grabbed my falling snow stencil, attached it to my card and dabbed Versamark all over it before heat embossing with Wow Sparkling Snow embossing glitter.  It looks great in real life, all sparkly but with just enough white powder to make it look like snow.  I think you can just see it in the photo.

I'm entering the following challenges :

CAS on Sunday - Emboss It !
Crazy for CAS - One Layer Stamping

Christmas Wreath

Thank you so much for your kind wishes.  I am feeling much better but I wish I could get rid of this cough !  It's driving me and my ribs mad !  Anyway, rather than joining the hubster in stripping the wallpaper and artex from the kitchen, I thought I would hide away in my room and join in with the new challenge over at Clearly Besotted Stamps ! The challenge is Christmas !

I just adore this new stamp set which is a collaboration between Clearly Besotted Stamps and Simon Says Stamp.  It also comes with a set of matching dies too.

I coloured the stamp with distress markers and stamped onto watercolor card.  I added some red stickler to the berries.

Don't ya just love this time of year ?  I think its my favourite.
