A little spooky

Hello blogworld

So after that mild rant about Halloween here I am again with another Halloween-y card!  This time it's for the new challenge over Divas by Design and, guess what!, the challenge this week is 'Something Spooky'.

Our sponsor this week is Whoopsidaisy and there is a fab prize on offer - pop on over to the blog to see the full details and the wonderful cards my Teamies have made.

So this is my card - like I said I don't do Halloween, but there are two little boys who are having a joint birthday party next weekend (school friends of Emily's) and so I thought I'd make birthday cards with a bit of a Halloween theme.

So here we are - a Lil Spook having a monster birthday.

Front shot:

Detail of image:

Bit flat this card, so no arty-farty!

I used:

Digi stamp:
Pollycraft - Lil Spook
coloured with my Promarkers
Sentiment - combination of 'monster' from Pollycraft then I added the rest

Dies / Punches:
Nestie circles and scalloped circles
Die-namics - Stacking Stars
Martha Stewart punch for the zig-zag border

Echo Park - Chillingsworth Manor

Anything else?
Ribbon from a local craft shop

So there you go, hope everyone is well.

Ah and we had a bit of surprise with those kittens.  The three of them went off to be neutered on Monday - vets called to tell us they were just about to operate on Ewok when they realised she had 'extra bits' and wasn't a she but a he!!!  Good job the name is pretty much non-gender specific!

Also it looks like 'Worried' might not be 'Belle', Emily and I prefer 'Holly' but hubby doesn't, the matter is currently under debate with further updates to follow.

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: Week #229 - I've just realised I've moved the sentiment!  Hope that's OK.

I love Promarkers: Challenge #139 - Anything Goes

Papertake Weekly: Fright Night!!

Sweet little image, nicely coloured...
Halloween over here is a big thing. I will have carloads of kids running up to the door grasping their little bags, carefully saying trick or treat and sometimes too shy to say it!!! Sometimes after you put the candy in, they just stand there and stare at you and the Mum has to sort of come up to the porch and lead them away!!!

I think DH is planning on 250 chocolate bars this year as we have some new houses being built a couple of blocks away.
