Thank you for all the lovely comments on my skeleton yesterday -
 think of me when I am helping 35 kids make one each on Halloween!!!

Right - today I have two cards for you - the first is my DT make for the new challenge at

 Left of Center

The cute image I used from A Day for Daisies was Fall Fairy Friend and this is the sketch:
Soon I hope to have all my punches and dies with me but in the meantime I decided not to cut a circle by hand. My main image is a rectangle with rounded corners - cut in the old-fashioned way, by cutting round a coin!!

I used Memento Tangelo to distress around the edges of this image and the first layer of paper on my card. This and my 3 dotty rectangles were from a BoBunny pad - Double Dot designs.
I added ribbon and 3 lovely buttons - and 3 foam bats - these are the same colour as that Promarker I used for some of the leaves.
Please join us at Left Of Center!

My second card - well it's Friday so Smeared Ink Day...
For this card I used Smeared Ink's  It's about Time Hourglass
My theme today must have been about 'dots' - I chose a dotty card base to start!!
The colour scheme was a striking black, grey and white...

The banner's starry paper is from Kanban matted onto black card.
The verse is by John Keats (English lyric poet 1795 - 1821)
The skull is a Lelli- Bot embellishment from Gothic Grunge, the plastic spider from my stash!

 Happy Crafting!

P.S. If you liked the web and spider image from
