I think You're Sweet

Hi everyone and happy Friday! Well, my computer was not fixed yesterday. I spent a lot more quality time with tech support and they have determined that the hard drive has failed. So, my next call was to the service warranty people since the pc is a little less than two years old and we do have a three year service contract on it. The good news is they are sending someone to fix it. The bad news is that someone will contact me in 5 to 10 days and then come out and determine for themselves what the problem is and then order any necessary parts which will take anywhere from 5 to 10 days to come in, so I'm looking at a couple of weeks without a computer.

In the meantime I will be doing all the office work the old fashioned way! Can we say fun times? the hardest part is not being able to check my e mail and surf all the wonderful blogs in my slow time!

I have a sneak peek for you today! I used the sketch from this week's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers and made a cute Halloween card with a new image called Not So Wicked Witch from Joni Walker.

(click to enlarge)

This was a fun sketch! I had fun pulling out my Halloween papers too. I paper pieced her dress and hat, colored everything else with Copic markers, and added yellow stickles to her wand.

I used some thread to hang a confetti spider from the fan of papers. Here's a close up of that detail

There are some more fun Halloween images in this week's release, so be sure to check 'em out - and check out the design team's blogs for more sneak peeks! Thanks for looking!

Love your card espcially the sentiment.
