All dressed up

Hi, hope everyone is ok and looking forward to half-term next week. I don't mind school holidays that only last a week, they go incredibly quickly and we are usually very busy. Just a quick post tonight, this is a card I made a couple of weeks ago for some challenges that caught my eye, then the night that I was going to post it I lost internet service and didn't get it back again for over a week. So here is the card (better late than never), and I would like to enter it for two challenges:
Magnolia Stamp Lovers' Sparkling challenge and Totally Gorjuss - Pink!

Hope you can see from the dodgy photo's that Tilda has sparkly gem buttons and glitter wings, there are gems on the swirly patterned paper and background paper has glitter dots.
I used: SU - sentiment and inks
Magnolia - Stylish Tilda
papers, brads, gems and ribbon from stash

Thanks for taking the time to look

Things that go bump in the night!

Hi everyone, so glad to be back crafting again. I have been busy making cards even if I have been absent from my blog. Time has flashed by and here I am nearly a month on from last time I did a post - scary! Talking of all things scary, that leads me to my card, it has a halloween feel and considering it is my first attempt at something spooky I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I didn't rush it and it kind of evolved as I went along. The ribbon didn't want to stick and the home made pumpkins look a bit dodgy,(I am not the best at colouring either, sorry Tilda!)but here I am getting too self - critical again!

I used; Magnolia Ink paper - 'So Spooky' Halloween Star
Magnolia stamps - Bat Tilda, Pirate? Tilda (loaned from my lovely friend Fleur), text,'have a spooktacular night'
SU - Bashful blue cardstock, eyelet border punch, inks; bashful blue and pumpkin pie
Nestabilities labels nine
pumpkin charm - given to me by Fleur (too kind xx)
spider - was a halloween novelty ring!
ribbon and wool from stash - for the web

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Cupcake - Scary Creatures
SPCC - colour combo: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue
Totally Tilda - Halloween

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by
