Tiddly Eeeeeeeeks!!

Hi lovely peeps! I cannot believe it's been almost a week since I last blogged - Oopsie! This week has literally flown by - not sure where it went but it certainly isn't here now but hey, the weekend is upon us ..... yay!!! Oh, I do love the weekends! No work! No school! Just FAMILY free-time to spend how we wish :)

During this last whirlwind of a week I did manage to make up a card!  My FIRST EVER HALLOWEEN card!  That's a bit scary in itself!  Here's the little spookster in her full glory :)

This little beauty is called Sugar Angel and is one of a fantastic array of digital stamps over at Tiddly Inks.  I coloured her up with my old faithful promarkers in very daring purple and orange and added a green misty background for effect!  The spider web design was a fab freebie download from Crafticious - also kindly included in the freebie offers are skulls, bones and spooky eyes! 

Because this is obviously a Halloween card, I didn't want to make it too pretty (although I do think Sugar Angel is a little doll) but I actually physically couldn't help myself from adding a bit of glitter and bling :)  I think her beautiful glitter bat wings finish her off perfectly and the googly little spider above her I coloured from a normal colouring page and cut him out (tricky isn't the word!!! - have you seen how skinny his little legs are???), then added a little bit of 3D glaze to make him pop out a bit! 

The spooky tree is a silhouette sticker from Katy Sue designs. The little goofy bat was from a colouring page - cutting him out wasn't half as tricky as Mr Spider up there! Hehe!  The googly eye on my sentiment was one of the freebies from Crafticious - I made the sentiment up just to add a little humour to this otherwise terrifying, spookily freaky card!  Well, ok, I don't think it's terrifying at all but I do hope I've managed to convey my little spell:  A little bit of spooky, a handful of cuteness, a dash of glamour, finished with a little touch of humour :)

The challenges I would like to enter this card into are:
