Something Spooky's Going On.......

Well it has suddenly hit me that Halloween is just around the corner......hard to believe when we are having such mild weather at the moment, but the indications are there....the leaves changing and starting to fall off the trees, the way that it suddenly turns a bit chilly when the sun goes behind a cloud, and of course those nights are really starting to draw in now!

I have to say that I love the halloween celebrations......lots of lovely colours, lots of fun and....most of all CHOCOLATE!!  It's all to easy to start to feel regrets when the summer is suddenly over and the dark nights are taking over, and I think Halloween is a great way to inject a bit of fun, just when you need a bit of a boost.

So here's my Halloween card, which I plan to enter in to some of the spooky challenges which are out there right now. This card will of course be for my son, and features some lovely Halloween digi's coupled up with some lovely papers that I got years ago but never wanted to cut in to!

This reminds me exactly of what goes on in our neck of the woods once darkness falls on Halloween night.....long may it continue....a bit of harmless fun.

Here are the challenges that I am going to enter:

Papertake - Anything Goes
Without Words - Things that go bump
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour - Halloween
Crafty Calendar - All things Spooky
The Ribbon Girl - Card for a boy

That's all for me today...gonna sign off now and hope to find a little time for crafting this evening!
