Boo!

Boo1a

Did I make you jump? Huh? Did I?

This will be my one and only Halloween card for this year... I don't tend to make Halloween cards, but this year I have a little Japanese friend who is very excited by the whole pumpkin carving ... trick or treating experience so I have made this for her.

It is also my entry for this week's challenge over on the Allsort's blog where the theme is indeed Halloween :0)Boo1

The very cute stamp is by Whipper Snapper and the background stamps are from who knows where ... they are on grey rubber ... the sort you buy at shows without packaging and they have the price scribbled on the stamp ... I really have no clue who made them!

Colouring as  usual is with distress inks and Pro Markers ... the cat, lamp post and bat are all from the holiday grunge board set.

The sun is shining here and I have a date with a very good looking Doctor this afternoon ... he is going to look into my eyes ... sadly only for medical purposes ... S'pose you can't have everything!

Enjoy your week!

Great card, love the ghost image!! I had my lunch break sittin gin the sun..came close to sleep it was so lovely!
I hope he didn't gaze into your eyes and then take £300 off you - as happened to me earlier this year. Still not over the disappointment!

Hi Linda

What a great ghostly image and nice layout.

Shame about eye doctors, they shine so many bright lights you can't see them even if they are a bit dishy.

Thanks for joining in at Allsorts this week.
