Good afternoon bloggers out there - it's been a bit quiet here in my bloggersphere, however in our house it has definitely not been quiet!   As you know the maestro has been recuperating from his Arthroscopy - this is when he had bits removed out of his kneecap 'cos they were floating about - eeew!  His bruise has now disappeared from his bum, after his fall down the stairs, but he still has the scrapes on his elbows where they caught on the carpet!  Thanks again to all of you who left messages for him.

He's back at work next week, four days, so nothing toooooo tiring!

That's enough about him so I'll now get on to posting my OSAAT card for this fortnight.  Our theme is Anything goes with Halloween Colours so you can make something for Halloween or just use those colours - great!  

I loved this image as soon as I saw it so had to make a Halloween card in Halloween colours!  The sentiment was typed on black card and then I popped it through my Minc machine (birthday present from the Maestro back in July).   It stands out really well IRL and looks quite spooky.
