Spooky Tilda - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I still haven't got around to stamping my Magnolia stamp club yet but today is the day I am determined & on a mission to get colouring lol.

Have you ever looked at someone and thought "did you really say that"? I have decided some of my workmates really are worse much than me for being air heads lol.
For example -
Two male staff buying groceries for the care home couldn't find Butternut Squash anywhere in the soft drinks aisle in the supermarket!!!
One of those staff members on our recent holiday to Centre Parks at Longleat was worried about the bears in the forest!!!
Another staff member knowing we don't have bears in the UK laughed & said she was scared knowing there were Gorilla's in the forest!!!
Another of my little air heads thought an armchair was called a one seater sofa ha ha ha.
Yes they truly are that bad but one thing is for sure we never work a shift without a whole lot of laughter lol.

On to today's card -
 
for
& this week our challenge is
HALLOWEEN / HALLOWEEN COLOURS
 Today's card has been created using another of my poor neglected Tilda's and also Simon Says Stamp super cute STAMPtember® release "Hey Pumpkin" stamps.

I have one very happy husband here as he is one of ten lucky HOG members who will be riding celebrities around London on his Harley Davidson this Sunday, Monday & Tuesday. They have been booked by an events organisation to transport celebs around for the "Movember" charity event photo shoots so I won't be seeing much of him from now until next Wednesday as he's spending hours polishing & buffing every teeny weeny piece of chrome on that beloved bike of his, not that it needs it we all get dazzled by the shine as it is lol.
We have no idea which celebs are taking part this year but hubs has had strict instructions to kidnap certain celebrities should he be lucky enough to have them as his passengers and drive straight home with them, David Beckham or Robbie Williams for me & Ollie Murrs for Jodie lol.
Thanks for stopping by

    Lucky hubby getting to travel around London with a few celebs on his back (that came out wrong, maybe I should join your airhead ranks?!) Though I'm sure he would rather a few celebrities of the female kind?! For me, never mind Becks or Robbie, I'd want him to kidnap Gordon Ramsay, at least he can cook your dinner!!! ;) Hugs, Lisa x
