A Delightful Halloween

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at Delightful Challenges and this week the theme is:


This also coincides with a brand new release from Wendy which have to be the most adorable little Halloween monsters and ghouls you have seen, pop over to Digital Delights to check them out.  For my card I have used the adorable Frankenstein Kiddles from the new collection:

Isn't she just the cutest? You can get her from Digital Delights here. I have coloured her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from the new Ghoulish Sentiments set which is available here to purchase. I have used two papers from the Ghoulishly Scary Digital Paper pack which is available here to purchase.  I have cut Kiddles out and then matted her on some paper which I first ribbed and then cut with a Nestie, I then made a faux Nestie to put them on. The bats and spider are a Memory Box die, I have added some red gems from my stash to make bat's eyes.  The button, twine and webbed ribbon are from my stash.  I really had a lot of fun making this card I love Halloween and Wendy's images are just too fun to miss, I will be using another from this collection in the coming weeks.  

Please pop over the our challenge at Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the Design Team have made with this adorable collection.  You can also go over to Digital Delights Blog and see what the Design Team there have made for some further ghoulish inspiration!  Remember you don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it when you do and your entry will then count twice.  Our sponsor this week is no other than:

They will be giving the lucky winner a $10 voucher!

Thanks for all your kind wishes about my daughter. She has had blood tests and will hopefully be started on some more medication today which, if it works, will take 1 -2 weeks.

Thank you so much for looking and any comments you may leave it is always a pleasure to read them - take care xx

I did smile when I saw this one Susan - it's one of those 'happy' images that I love. Love those little bats and your colours are great. Only thing that upsets me is the eight legged brute in the corner - it is sooo lifelike! LOL.

Hugs to you Sue P xx
