More halloween / birthday card

Good evening to you all! After a long and strange weekend with lots of parties: three ones for my youngest and one for my olderst, his own. LoL Discovered that we had a water leak in the kitchen. Something connected to the refrigerator. Hopefully it's not too bad, but we can't see how far under the floor the water has gone. It seems to be a "sneaking up on" water leak that has been going on for a while. Drop by drop how to speak. When we finally got the kitchen to work again and a heat fan going there, then the big waterconduit breaks and 8000 house holds, schools, daycare etc is out of water. Jippi! Sometimes life is fun. In the middle of this we had a party for Willy who turns 7 tomorrow, only the washing-up after around 20 people to do, without water. I was really thinking of bringing it all outside and let the rain soak everything. However after about 24 hours without water it's now back but we will have to boil all water before we use it. Oh well, one of those weeks. I hope Mats doesn't have anything he needs washed as he will be going to Istanbul, Turkey in the end of week with his work. No washing allowed if we don't do it on high temp and it's not many clothes that want to be boiled. LoL

Well after this long messy story I thought I share the card Philip gave his friend and next door neighbour for her big day. I used the sweetest whitch around from the Paper Shelter and this is also one of the cards that I had to remake because of the pawprints from my crafting cat. As the birthdays is around this time of the year they all are Halloween parties. So even if I don't like Halloween or making cards for it, I "need" to make a few each year. Not the scariest ones but still, Halloween. :)

I coloured her with my Letraset family and some pens as I do from time to time. Willy didn't like the purple I put around the image but it symbolizes the night for me. Was in no mood to colour it all in and make it too dark. LoL I have once again used a few digital designer papers from  Echo park to make my card. I love the little softer Halloween colours to this set. Soft and nice. The dp under the image is actually covered with spiders as well, but I managed (without wanting too) to cover them all up. The inside is covered with this paper and some sentiment and a greeting that is between Ebba and Philip. I used some black stickles on the punched flowers and picked fence glitter on the roses. A piece of lace, pearls and punched branches with a MS punch is used to decorate the whole thing. Nice and simple. It doesn't have to be more when it is for a five year old I hope. :)

Love n hugs
