Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  My surgery went fine on Friday and I've been resting since, not doing too much.  I feel a little better today, so I couldn't resist having a little play.   I'm not supposed to sit for long periods of time, though, so I'll make this brief, then take another rest.  I made a quick card for a few challenges I enjoy doing when I can.

Here is my final Halloween card of the year:

My card base and mats are SU Eggplant Envy and the patterned papers are from a Recollections Halloween 12x12 pad from last year.  The adorable image is Little Witch on the Moon, a new addition to the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection. I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Yellow Stickles to the stars and Crystal Stickles to the little ghosts.  The sentiment was made with Scrabble tiles from My Mind's Eye.  I forget which collection they came from.  Some lime ribbon and a fun little jack-o-lantern finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I've been trying to visit in short spurts so I hope to by soon.

    I have been standing with my easel on the kitchen breakfast nook doing my colouring, that way I don't have to sit. I just keep going back and forth doing a little bit each time. It's painstakingly long, but at least I can do something that I enjoy doing.
