Good morning everyone!]
This is just a quick post today to showcase the card I've made for the Design Team over at ScrapbookerPhD.
We were challenged to make a card with a Halloween theme, to use the colour orange but not a "Happy Halloween" sentiment.
The challenge is sponsored by Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons who have a lovely store full of cutting files and digital goodies!

I have used paper downloaded (free!) from Cardmaking and Papercraft
The image is Sassy Witch from Sassy Studio Designs
Spectrum Noir markers
Sentiment from From The Heart Stamps - Bewitchin Birdbrains

This is my design :

Fab Friday!

Hey all!
It's the end of another week which means it's one week closer to my holiday! Yaaaayy!
The weather has been really nice here lately so I'm secretly hoping that when we go to Zante in October then it's a little less nice at home! Just so I can feel justified in following the sun!!!!

Today I have a card which I made for the Design Team over at Friday Sketch Challenges who I've been with for a while now - can't remember exactly how long but a couple of months or so (I think!).

The challenge- #78 - is being hosted by Christine Harnett  (follow the link to her FB page!) who is a very committed member of the design team and actually does all the running around and organising for all of the members! Thanks Christine!

The sponsor this week is Rick St. Dennis, an established artist who lives and works in California. Please do follow this link and have a look at his images on; they are truly awesome! And, if you have the time and the inclination, here is a link to his biography

Sadly, I don't have the sketch to follow available at this time!

Now, the card!

The image I used is from his Zibbet store, and it's called Old fashioned outhouse!
I thought I would use an image which would challenge me to make into a card as opposed to using the characters he draws.
