Day two and I thought I would show you the cards I made for the Grandchildren for Halloween. 
The spiders are cased from blogland - not sure whose idea it was originally, but it was an easy one to do if you don't have specific Halloween stamps.

I loved the cat stamp as soon as I saw it - SU Frightening Feline !!  Took the idea for this one from "Frenchie"

and lastly SU's Bootiful Occasions.
Saw a little poem while blog surfing that started off : "Trick or treat, smell my feet" but when I went to write it in  the boys' cards I couldn't remember the rest of it!!  Old age is more frightening than Halloween!

Hip Hip Hooray

it's my special day today and as I had lots of spare time I thought I would update my neglected blog.  Unfortunately, to do that I had to upload card photos to my computer and that proved to be a very long process.  I got a new computer back in May and it does not recognise my camera software so have been taking photos with the iphone and ipad and these do not upload as I would wish- ie in date order!! - so there are photos all over the place and to add to the confusion every time I connect the ipad to the computer it loads ALL the photos again.  Yikes, I am out of my depth here.
I have a friend who posts one photo of Melbourne a day and maybe that is an idea I will run with for a while.
This card was for a very special friend in England who celebrated her 80th birthday back in September.  A friend of hers made her a birthday cake decorated with "Toy Boys" dressed only in top hats - I do hope she sends me a photo of that.

Back soon,
