Hi Everyone ...Hope everyone is fit and well ...

Today i'm adding a card that i made for my sister-in-law , i still call her my sister-in-law even though i have been divorced from her late brother since 1992 , but she's a good friend as well .

Anyway i used a stamp from the NEW Sheena Douglas range . I love her stamps , she designed stamps for Creative Expressions , but now has designed a lovely range under her own name . I love watching her on Create and Craft TV programmes . I have added a link to her blog , from her blog you can find a link to her shop . I have also added a link to Creative Expressions , on their site they have some brilliant ideas and online workshops where you can access and print out their ideas for not only making cards but for making a range of other crafting things . Both Sheena Douglas's and Creative Expressions stamps are brilliant to use and they aren't expensive which is a added bonus !!

Halloween is at the end of this week , and on Saturday evening my daughter is having a Halloween Fancy Dress Party , she's having it on the Saturday as on the Sunday she along with my 2 other daughter's take their children on Trick or Treat and they so look forward to dressing in their costumes and going out . It should be a great night and i'm going as the Angel of the Cemetery . I have a lovely costume , now i just need to find some good ideas for my make-up , they have some great video's on You Tube so i will be checking them out .

Right now for the card ! I used a purple card which i matt and layered onto silver card , with a white card as the base . I stamped and embossed the image and then cut the image out using my spellbinders . I coloured the image in using my Cosmic Shimmer water colour paints again . Added a lilac coloured ribbon some gems and flowers which i used Cosmic Shimmer Glitter glue on the edges . On the bottom part i added a verse and some more flowers and i also stamped out another image from the Sheena Douglas set and coloured it again using my Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour paints . I made a box for the card , the base i kept white and the lid i used a lilac card in the same colour . I stamped and embossed a flower and leaves using one from the Creative Expressions sets that i have and glued it to the box for a bit of extra decoration . Hope you like it ... Take care and hugs Melita xx
