Halloween at Crafts and Me

Morning Peeps,

If your reading this my scheduled post has worked and I am currently in Konya in Turkey following an early flight at 07:00 (05:00 UK time) from Istanbul, and I will not return to Istanbul until middnight tonight, so if any of you out there think it's glamerous travelling, this may put you off, lol.  Seriously, I enjoy my job.

Today over at Craftalicious     has chosen the popular theme at the moment of "Halloween".  This is only my second card on this theme as we don't celebrate it in the UK, well not many of us anyway, so this card will be another addition to decorate my craft room.  I have chosen Misty Reflections available here.

I have coloured this beautiful Sweet Pea Stamp available from Crafts and Me, using copic markers, C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
