I'm finally out of the hospital after an 8 day stay.  Needless to say I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight.  Thanks to everyone who went me well wishes.
It didn't take me long to get back to the "drawing board" with a sketch challenge.  This one is for Sketch Frenzy Friday, and it has a Halloween theme.  A lot of the nurses in the hospital were fascinated with the art work I was doing while laid up, and one even ordered some cards from me - Halloween ones - not this one, but a similar one.
Here's my card.

I used 2 different stamp sets to make this card and I love the way it turned out.
Stamps: Wicked Cool (pg. 23), Greeting Card Kids(pg. 36)
Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Crazun Craze, Whisper White, Wicked Fun Specialty Paper (Pg. 172)
Ink: Black Stazon, SU markers and blender Pen (basic black, Daffodil Yellow, Chocolate chip, Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, Blush Blossom)
Accessories:5/8" basic black satin ribbon, 1/2" raven trim lace, Black flourish designer jewels, Filigree designer brads, spellbinder shapes

Welcome back... I hope you enjoyed your own bed. I love the papers and the bats/spooky sentiment added to the sweet image.

glad you are home and feeling a bit better and able to play with all of your toys again. I know you were lost without them. Love your Halloween cards they are so cute. Neat little stamps.

Welcome back home and hope you are feeling much better.

I have the stamp with the Christmas elves, but have rarely used it. I love the way you used the liquid embroidery on the elves hats. How did you do the snowflakes to get them to fluff so much and be so precise? Are the snowflakes embossed? Thanks for the great cards.
