Polka Dodles - Spooktastic

We are looking for your
spooky creations this week at
I have used one of the Polka doodles templates
for my card base - Dees Double Diamond.

I have used imagery from the
that I have cut out and misted
with Glimmer mists.
Added googly eyes and spider on a spring.
Also some bats and spider on wire.

Still feeling lousy - all your well wishes much appreciated.
It seems they recon I may well be allergic to Codine
so I'm off that and on steroids and anti-histamine.....
which is not helping the pain in my back and legs!
However I think my feet look slightly less like
the knitted toys my brother kindly refered to them as earlier......

So how sppoky are you feeling
come on over to Polka Doodles and share your creations!
