New Challenge at Delightful

Good morning everyone and today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges.  This week the theme is:


Its getting to the time of year when all things ghoulish are appearing so this should be an easy challenge for you all!  Here is what I have made:

I have used the super adorable Vampire Kiddles which is available here at Digital Delights. He has been coloured with Copics and the edges distressed with Black Soot Distress Ink. I have cut and matted him with Spellbinders Nesties and the spider is a Memory Box Die.  I have used some Coredinations Black Magic cardstock for the background which I have put through a herringbone embossing folder so the green core shows through.  I have used Spootacular Digital Paper as the background for the MFT Retro Squares die, you can purchase the Spootacular Papers here. I have used one of the sentiments from the Ghoulish Sentiments Set which is available here. The bat is a Memory Box Die and the gems are from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is none other than:

The lucky will win a $10 store voucher to spend in Digital Delights. You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it so much if you do that you can enter twice! Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the talented Design Team have done its worth the visit!

Thank you so much for your warm wishes regarding my daughter, I have started to see an improvement this last week so I am hopeful. We are going to take her to her house this weekend so she can spend the weekend with her partner so this is a big step for her.  I am hoping she continues to improve as I am going on holiday in three weeks and, although I have made arrangements for her dad and partner to be here with her, it is worrying having to leave her.  We did not have a holiday together last year due to my husband's operation and radiotherapy so we are anxious to have one this year plus we are taking his grandchildren and do not want to disappoint them. Why is life never simple?

Thanks so much for looking I really appreciate it, take care xx
