Oh no! I'm late.....

Here's what I have been up to - a very good friend was celebrating a special birthday with a party today, I asked her husband who had arranged it all if I could help set up the tables. What was the colour scheme?
Well bless him, he had been out and bought the bright birthday balloon tablecloths that aren't usually seen at a party past the age of six. Now my friend is an elegant and sophisticated woman, who would probably have chosen a scheme of hot pink and silver....... you get the picture. So I dashed out to get tissue paper and was still making dratted paper flowers at 2 a.m, I made about forty of the things, but it was worth it, we scattered groups of them around, and the tables looked great, really bright and funky. It was a super party, thank you Howard and Carol xx

I am a day late posting my Polkadoodles card for this week. We were asked to make something

SPOOKY

Before I get to my card, I can't tell you what fabulous stuff the design team have come up with for this challenge, creative bunch. Do go over and take a peek, and of course if you join in with the challenge, there are blinkies and a prize up for grabs each week

For my card, I sprayed the background white cardstock with some black krylon spray webbing, it gives a very random spooky effect, (and added a bit of a modern art feel to the red green and blue paint splashes already on my garage floor)

.......... whilst I waited for it to dry, I printed out elements from the autumn section of the Sundae of Seasons CD, available from Polkadoodles. I printed her out already coloured in, all I had to do was cut her out with the pumpkins and stick her on with foam pads.



I painted the pumpkins with Glossy Accents


the sentiment was printed out as well


I will draw the winner of the 'best of both worlds' blog candy tomorrow.... see you then

Love the card, not sure if someone that cute can be called spooky, but heck she is a witch right!?!? Very nice.
Great job on the decorations for the party too. Sounds like it was a huge success.
