Put a Spell on you and you'll be mine....

Morning Peeps,

Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine got worse before it got better.  Following on from Friday, my car went to have the bush done but they were unable to get it out so to cut a long story short I had to have a complete Wishbone Arm fitted, along with a couple of hours labour. So around another £200 that I wasn't expecting.  Think this brings my weekly total to around £600.  Now that's a lot of cards I need to sell, lol. I'm now being positive and only good things will happen....Just popped back to edit this scheduled post, my TV has just blown up! So much for my positive thinking!

Today, I'd like to inspire you with the Simply Sassy image "Best Witches" available HERE, what a fab name for this stamp.  I loved Maria's idea of using her for Valentines and so I have done the same and as she's a witch she needed a book of love spells, lol, so I made a little book of spells at the bottom of my card as an embellishment. 

What do ya think?  I think she could have lots of books of spells, birthday wishes, good luck, love, halloween to name but a few.

Here's a close up of this funky image.

Here's my little book of spells, lol.  I wrote the word and then went over it using a versamark pen and then added clear embossing powder and heat embossed. Then I added a couple of little loveheart pearls, just so she can tell that this spell book is for "luvvvvvvv".

Another picture with the tag pulled out which says "You and Me".

Materials used:-
Sugar Nellie Best Witches image available HERE
I have coloured her with copics R29, R27, R24, R22, C9, C7, C5, C3, E25, E31, E50, E53
The papers are digi papers from Bearly Mine  available HERE and
"With this ring too" from Nitwits available HERE
Corrugated cardboard, painted with white acrylic paint and edged with Fired Brick distress ink
Martha Stewart Border Punch (heart)
Heart pearls from Bizzy Bec's as well as the heart doily available HERE
Swirl corner coloured with copic marker and clear embossed available from Make It Crafty HERE
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace, ribbon and twine from stash.

Tracy... your talented is KILLING ME!!! No seriously, I saw this and my heart stopped for a second!!! You've got me hung up on those sugar nellies... I gotta get me some!

Paula (PEP) said...

Just amazing the way you've captured that bluey grey of the paper in the colouring of her hat & boots - love the detailed folds. Those heart gems pick up the hearts in the lace boder beautifully & I like tehat idea of the book - I too was caught by the idea of using her for different occasions. Love your wrinkly tights over the knobbly knees - can sense the texture.
Hope your week is better.
