A spooky birthday card

Hi All
Hope you are all keeping well. Weather is still warm and sunny here in Turkey.
Today I would like to show the project I made for Daisy and Dandelion. The design word was 'halloween', and although I didnt actually make a halloween project I still used all my projects from the trick or treat range of Daisy and Dandelion, not only that I wanted to show people how verstaille the range is, and that you can make a whole host of others things with the beautiful papers, die cuts.
Heres my 'Hope you have a Spooky Birthday' card.

and the reason why I love my Quickutz Silhouette so much......

For instructions on how to make this, and to see some other fab halloween projects visit

Thanks for looking everyone and have a great day.

Hi everyone-sorry I havent loaded any cards for a while, my mojo seemed to have gone away on holiday after all those anniversary cards I made!!!!

I really enjoyed making this card with my House Mouse stamp called Beaded Tree, I have never seen such hugh stamps and the image comes out perfect. I decided to use alternative colours for this Christmas cards, I just love alternative colour christmas cards with a bit of silver added in. I used my new Orchid Dew Drops and Christmas Green Prima Flowers. I also got the sewing machine out, and this the second time I have used the stitching techique. Heres the pic.
