Witching Hour

Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend. Just a short post from me today to show you my only Hallowe'en card so far. I don't really "do" Hallowe'en and I'm well behind with my Chrimbo cards so I really should be getting on with those; but I just had to try to bodge together a card from my (very) limited supplies for all the spooky challenges there are out there!

Definitely not one of my best; but the best I could do with what I had available.

Stamps: Debbi Moore;
Paper: The Robin's Nest;
Supplies: computer-generated sentiment; ribbon, lace and gems from my stash;
Tools: Marianne D lantern die.
