the joy of giving!

well today i am showing a card made for a blogging friend using the sketch on stamp with sarahkay, and followed the theme on ABC challenge ~"O is for oval".
used ~the joy of giving ~ sarah kay stamp, basic grey papers, nestsbilities ovals, prima flowers, vellum, gems and brads from my stash , finished with glitter.

hope you all had a great halloween ~it kind of took over our house ~so had no time for blogging yesterday ~will try and catch up with you today. we had loads of children "trick and treating" from about 6am~the boys just loved , making pumkin lanterns,dressing up and answering the door with loads of sweeties. even little elsie (nearly 6 months old) from next door dressed~up, and came round for a fun evening ~ mm what can i say we enjoyed 2 bottles of wine with our next door neighbours (not the children) ~i was very merry (as i don`t drink!!)
aaron and paul really enjoyed "Lulworth Castle" yesterday ~ think we will all go next year ~as it was real halloween fun for all the family!!
enjoy your weekend. byeeeeeeeeeeeee xx
