Yes this little card took nearly a week to make!! I made the wood paper on Monday after watching Make It Monday #38: Brayer & Impression Plate Techniques over at Nichole Heady's blog. Then I was busy getting spooky and making samples for my demo at Coleman's Craft Warehouse yesterday. So it then sat there until today! But with the help of my new Sizzix stamp & die-cut set (thank you Fiona xx) I knew exactly where I wanted to make.
Hero Art dies and Sizzix matching dies, what's not to love.
I even cut the paper up to make floor boards. Inspired by the technique I made my "wallpaper" using a Sizzix embossing folder with sweet blush ink. It's a great way to add further dimension to your cards.

As I was out all day yesterday I didn't get chance to post my Music Saves my Soul.
So here's my offering for this week. As a kid I loved Suzi Quattro! So as it's nearly Halloween, here's Devil Gate Drive
I never had enough pocket money to buy records but loved this when it came on the radio!
Right I'd better go and tidy my craft room as it's back to work in the morning and a busy, busy week.
