Well i'll start with some exciting news....well it's exciting for me..LOL,i 've been asked by Denise from Whimsy Stamps to join the Digital DT..."WOO HOO"...thank you for having me on board!
So this is my first project...sorry not much colouring and must say it myself not very good photo's either :0(...i decided to make a swing card...big mistake...love the style of the card just a nightmare to photograph.

I've used the new "Halloween Sentiments" and "Halloween Ticket Sentiments" by Raindrop Designs,both sets available now from Whimsy Stamps.These can be used alone as a focal point on your card or to accent your images...
The paper is Pink Petticoat from the "Spooky Doodles" set which i've distressed using Black Soot Distress Ink around the edge.
The image when printed out is just black and white,i just added alittle colour to it using Ptromarkers.
The bats,spider,ribbon and hairy braid (which i think looks like spiders legs) all from stash.
I've made a treats box to go with the card,it contains witches fingers...lol..wrapped i must add,i've taken two out of their packets just to use for display so that you could see what i'd added to the box.

I'm entering the following challenges:-
AUD SENTIMENTS.....Use any Halloween sentiment,bonus challenge make a treat holder.
CRAFTY EMMA'S STORE CHALLENGE..."Get ahead,get a hat".
STAMP SCRAP AND DOODLE....Open challenge.
PAPER SUNDAES...Something from your stash.
Well that's about it for now,i haven't been around much,will try to get round to your blogs tonight.
Have a good day
Take care
