First of all, I just want to mention that Stamping Bella is offering free shipping on all orders over $55.00 as a thank you to all supporters and to celebrate going back to mini releases.  The free shipping is until Monday Oct 17 @ 11:59 PM EST.
So if you haven't been shopping lately, what are you waiting for... hop on over to Stamping Bella and start shopping.  Tons of new images to pick from including the latest craze - the Uptown Girls! (dontcha just love them!)

Now onto this weeks challenge card.  Our theme this week was Halloween. One of my favourite lines from Stamping Bella is the Stella's.  So I coloured up
Stella and her broomstick.

  I don't have very many halloween papers so I pulled out my trusty 6x6 pack of Basic Grey - Eerie. Started by stamping Stella on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils and gamsol. 
Used skinny oval dies as well as an EK Success scallop border punch.

Ribbon is some seam binding by Martha Stewart (found some on sale - woohoo!)
and then added some glitter to her dress and star.

I'm sure there will be losts of 'spookiness' over on Bloggabella, so be sure to check them out and leave some love as there is bella bucks up for grabs.

Next weeks challenge is a sketch by Ebruabella! Love sketches, makes card making  so easy. If you would like to play along this week, you can email your card to Emily by thursday night.

I wish all of you a wonderful weekend.  Have fun whatever you are doing!
Thanks for coming by today.

Don't you just love the Stellas Pauline, you have done an amazing job on this card my friend, I really like the DP you used and the purple colour ribbon seems to be a favourite amongst us bellas.

Oooh, great minds think alike :) Your card is beautiful!! I should have shaded around her too (must remember that) and I LOVE the tiny bits of glitter you put on her dress - just perfect!!
