The witching hour !

Hi everyone, Hope you all had a nice weekend.Weather seemed to cool down a bit on saturday, but today the temperatures are soaring again and tomorrow even hotter ! We have had a very long, hot summer ! So it would be so nice if it cooled down once and for all so it begins to feel like Autumn...l am Starting to get the halloween decorations out this week. l love halloween ,and l am really enjoying making cards and treat bags etc..The card l am showing today is a 8x8 card, the DP was a freebie and l wished l could remember the blog that it came from last year, so l could give it a mention if anyone knows,please let me know..Basic black paper for matting.Purple stazon ink pad for distressing the edges.Lavender and gold stickles.Promarkers, water colour pencils and fiskars glitter and metalic pens were used colouring these two cute images from Lyn at Dragonsmoore ( also see side bar for Link ) .Both these images were Freebies offered by Lyn,so please pop over to her place and see what Lyn has been up to ! The rest of the embellishments are from my stash ! l would like to enter this card into the following challenges..Sparkles Forum Challenge, their theme is 'Halloween'...Over at Fussy and Fancy they have 'Halloween or Fall' as their theme..Quirky Crafts challenge, want to see 'Something Spooky'..OSAAT have 'Anything Goes' as the theme this week..
