ACHOO !!!!! ,,,,, :-(

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well and thinking about the lovely weekend ahead, Halloween parties and the clock going back an hour ,,, quite alot going on eh ! :-)

I made this card following the FAB sketch on the Midnight Madness Challenge, did you see the prize on offer ??? 4 House Mouse stamps ,, NONE of which I have, so I am going to be keeping EVERYTHING crossed this week :-)

I am feeling a bit under the weather, quite like this little chap actually , what I thought was hay fever yesterday has developed into a proper cold,, so I am siting here with a huge box of tissues too :-)



I have had this stamp for quite a while and never inked ( shame on me ! ) This one is called Achoo coloured with my fave Copics , did you notice his poorly red eyes ? we have a matching pair this morning !! :-) I cut out the whole image and layered it to add a bit of dimension. I glittered the edges with Star Dust Stickles and added a few dabs onto the box too. The card and papers are all from SU ( bought from Mandi) and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives sentiment set. I used some ribbon ( which I should have ironed ,,,) a Spellbinders Ribbon Tag die and a few robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.



Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one xx Also I have a 700 Followers Candy at the top of my blog if you would like to join in :-)
