Mercedes is Witchin!

Happy Monday everyone! Start of another week and a new month too, cant believe how close we're getting to the Christmas again! But before then... there's Halloween! Simply Betty Stamps have a new Facebook fan page challenge calling for Halloween colours and the use of the freebie, Mercedes the Witch (Check out the Simply Betty Facebook page for more info).

I have used a 5x7 card base and the 'Oct 31' paper pad from Echo Park. I also cut some spiral roses using my Marianne Designs chinese rose die and added some seam binding in black and purple to compliment the colours.

Now, as well as entering this card into the Simply Betty challenge, I'm also entering this into the current Left of Centre Challenge #13. The challenge theme there is Girlie or LOC and I think as much as this card is flowery its also a bit LOC so I am working on a girlie card to enter too!

I'm also hoping that the Design Team over at Left of Centre will consider me to be part of their design team. They have new 'management' and are looking for another member for their incredibly talented team and I would love an oppertunity to join them. At present, I am on four DTs: The Crafters Cafe Challenge Blog which I create for every fortnight; Just For Fun, a monthly challenge blog; Tsunami Rose Designs which uses printable papers, journal kits and ephemera, a few times each month; and, quite aptly, PunkyouGirl where I create a project once per month for their 'Dark Themed' challenges.

With every team having different expectations, I have my time management skills honed, and I'm becoming more and more organised and efficient, and I like to work ahead - not always as easy task as I also have four children and a home to take care of. I take each of my responsibilities seriously but also try to have fun in my creating. I think of myself as mainly a cardmaker, however, through joining these other design teams, I have started taking my crafting out of that box - I love to make wall hangings and I have a box packed full of items awaiting alteration!

Thank you for reading this far, I hope that you have a wee look at my blog while you're here, or leave me a comment if I need to do anything else for you.

And to my regular followers, thanks for looking!
