Sweet Stampin' DT card

Hello again bloggers!

Can you believe me posting  this regularly - my goodness, how good am I!  Well except that this is a scheduled post, can't see me at the computer at 8am on a non-school day!  Though I could be here at 5am sometimes when Emily is on one of her waking early kicks!  How I ever came to have a child who wakes early I'll never know - I've always been one for lots of sleep and sleeping in.  Hey-ho enough of me and my waffle, here's what you visit me for (unless any of you do actually visit me for the waffle - in that case, are you sure you're feeling well!!! ;0 )

So here I am with my second card as a member of the DT for the Sweet Stampin' challenge - still so surprised but happy that I got asked to be on the DT, hope you're not having second thoughts yet ladies!!

The theme this week is Halloween, and is sponsored by

So lets be seeing all those Halloween stamped projects!

Do you know this is only the second Halloween card I've ever made - I really do not do Halloween at all. So it was a great pleasure to be given a digi from our sponsor to work with - otherwise you would've seen the same stamp as I used before!

Without further ado - me lil' card:

Hmmm, not my best effort ever but I quite like the colouring on the little zombie's hair and if you look closely you'll see that I glittered the eyes and mouth on the pumpkin, in the hope that it looks like a candle sparkling.

Anyway card details are:

Image Bugaboo digital stamp - Halloween Skelekinz -pumpkin 2, coloured with my Promarkers.
The papers are from Prima Moulin Rouge paper stack (told you I had nothing Halloweeny!)
The spiders web was cut from another paper and glittered.
The little spiders are Candi, from Craftwork Cards, then the thread and legs drawn on and glitter for eyes.
The fence was another freebie from Tracy at Dies to Die for.
The sentiment Googled.
Card blank is from Craftwork Cards.

So I hope this, and the wonderful work my other teamies have done, gives you inspiration for your creations - which I'm so looking forward to seeing.  I think it's the best part about being on a Design Team, that you get to go see all the creative talent that's out there in blogland.

So get creating, and you never know you might find me waffling on your blog!

Have a good weekend,
