Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!  I made this card for my dear friend Valerie (Bastelmania is her lovely blog) who had some knee surgery.  I know she loves Halloween so I thought the play on words would be fun for her, it was, she loved it.  I stuffed the kettle with some extra bottles of witchy potion so she would have some to play with too.  The spooky paper is a freebie from Gecko Galz, Lee Ann is always so generous with the free images.  The skull border, cauldron and spider web are all free cut files from Bird, (Birds Cards is her blog), she too is very generous with her beautiful and free cut files.  I cut the cauldron from gold mirror stock and then embossed it, added ruby rhinestones to the skull eyes and the tiny spiders too.  I printed all my images on glossy photo paper, I even splurged and used it for the envelope liner. 
Sorry I have not been posting much, my house is still under construction, still can not locate half of my craft stuff, but the end is in sight.  My computer crashed twice too and getting all of that together again has been a challenge too.  Spent the better part of yesterday finding and installing all of my additional fonts.  Installing all of my old programs too has been fun, but I am fortunate that my son builds computers so he helped with all the hard stuff, I get to do the fun re install work.
Just a note to all of you who have been affected by Sandy, all of you in that region are in my prayers.
Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween, don't eat too much candy! 
Thanks for looking.   ~Diane
