Where has the time gone?

I can't believe its been 15 days since I posted. I hadn't realised the time had gone by so quickly.

Started looking after a second school for two weeks whilst their head is off. Its like having two lives!!!!! In order to keep on top of things I have two bags , two files, two note pads etc. So I haven't had time to breathe. Then of all things my back went into a complete spasm last week and is only just relaxing!!! I have never had a bad back before and can't believe how debilitating it is. Will now sympathise with suffers!!!

Any way last night I sat and made a card as a means of theory!!!

I used a Pink Gem stamp and coloured it using promarkers. This time I tried my blender pen. Still need a lot of practise with that though.

Mind it reminded me of those pens you got years ago that sort of 'rubbed' (technical term there so concentrate) felt tip pen out. Many pro promarker users are now taking a sharp in take of breath!! Sorry don't mean to offend.

The web and spiders are OLS stickers that I mounted onto black card for effect.

The ribbon is from a papermania pack.

The 'Pumpkin Pie' stamp is from Pink Gem also. Stamped with Memento rich cocoa onto orange card.

The mats are cut using my new birthday present (early one) of spellbinders.

I attached the ribbon using Wackytac which is excellent to stick fabric with.

I am going to enter this for a number of fall/ autumn / Halloween challenges.
