Good morning everyone hope you had a fab weekend and have stopped sniffling following Downton!!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme is Halloween. Your project does not have to be a card so you can make anything you want as long as it follows the Halloween theme.  Here is what I have made:

I have used Lexi's Vampire Bear which you can purchase here from Fairydust Crafts. He has been coloured with Copics. I have used Spellbinders Nesties to cut him out and then distress with some DI.  I have used some orange glitter card for the mat and one of the new Nesties - Exquisite Circles.   The spider and bat are Memory Box dies and the skyline is a Dienamics die with more glitter card behind.  The paper is from Fancy Pants from the October 31 collection ( I am trying soooo hard to use some of my paper hoard up).  The ribbon, twine and charm are from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is

who will be giving the lucky winner a £10 store voucher.  You have to be in it to win it so they say so pop over to Lexi's Creations for some more inspiration from the talented DT. We look forward to seeing your spooky creations!

Well I am off to do some housework, then gym and shopping! I only have one more DT card to do in preparation for my holidays. I have made a total of 17 which will take me through to the end of November.  Thanks for looking today, take care x
