Sometimes you like them, sometimes you dont...

And sometimes you LOVE them. This is one of those LOVE THEM moments. What am I talking about? Cards, card you make. Some are OK, some you really dont like too much but this one I just made I love. I love the image, I love how I coloured her, I love the patterned paper, I love the bellas baubles, I love the ribbon and I am chuffed to pieces that I made it :) I am someone that doesnt believe too much in myself. I agree I must be able to stamp some or otherwise I wouldnt be teaching and demoing, but I certainly dont think I am anything special. But every so often I make a card that makes me think "yeah, your alright Caz, you can do it and you did good this time". Just everything about this card makes me happy... LOL OK maybe not EVERYTHING..... but almost... I do love halloween and I am sad that we dont really celebrate it. Its a bit of fun, I love the colours of halloween, the pumpkins, the bats, cats and spiders eeekk! I like the feeling of fun with the neighbours, going out trick or treating, having a laugh, nothing horrible, just fun for the kids. I have fond memories of Halloween as a child, again just fun, nothing horrible. I would LOVE to take the kids to the USA one year for halloween.

So now I have "big upped" my card (which you will all probably think is pants) I had better share it. Oh and I also love all the "arty" shots that people do of cards, so I pretended I was that "arty" person and did a few. I wanted to show you the "Bellas Baubles" they are so scrumptious, like little droplets of sunshine. (no the kids havent driven me to drink) LOL

Here you can see the baubles in all their glory.

Lookie at this cute image. Stamp is by Penny Black Inc and from The Glitter Pot. Paper is doodlebug design and also from The Glitter Pot.

I used the 2" scalloped Woodware circle. Never guess where that was from? Yep Glitter Pot... of course.
Yaddy yaddy yadda... which means if you go there to buy the stuff "tell them I sent ya"..

Simon used to love going trick or treating.

Great card Caz, I love the stamp and looks great combining it with the Doodlebug paper. I love Halloween cards too, they are great fun to make! Also just wanted to say thank you for your help with the Bellas again, after our e-mail convo I ordered a few and they were dispatched yesterday!! Can't wait for them to arrive! Thank you for your help and inspiration x
