Spooky Days are Coming!!

The air has gotten a bit colder these last few days and the nights a little darker........there's definitely a taste of Halloween in the air.

My local Tescos have already got a load of pumpkins in, and shed loads of mini sweets.......something which a will be buying in plenty over the next couple of weeks as we get a LOT of little visitors where I live!!

I recently received a lovely set of Halloween digi papers from Bearly Mine and have been looking for an excuse to use them, so I printed up one of my old digs (from Squiggle Stamp) and got down to some spooky creations.

And here's my little Frankenstein boy. I can honestly say it's the first time I have ever coloured green skin and I have to say it was a lot of fun!!

Look at those gorgeous papers too - I just love them, and there is quite a selection in the pack, plus some more generic papers too, which could easily be used for any time of year.

I used my Serif program to scale the papers down a bit before fussy cutting my image and mounting him on sticky pads so he is a bit raised.

I hope you like my card today and thanks for visiting.

Finally, here are some challenges:
