Frightful but Delightful .......

..................... is the challenge over at Papertake Weekly this week

Here's my pumpkin-tastic card lol xxx

I thought for a change I would get away from my usual 6 x 6 format, so I drew a pumpkin shape. Now, my dear old Mum was very gifted arty farty wise, but sadly, I did not inherit her awesome drawing ability. But I think you can tell what it is, just about!!
.

Tilda is from the new Fall Collection and I coloured her with PMs and gave her a hat!! This is from pc Crafter's Ooglie Googlies collection.

The spider???

Well the less said about that the better!!!
Now before you all tell me that spiders actually have 8 legs and not 6, I realised AFTER I had done the card. To be totally truthful, I realised AFTER Emma came in and kindly pointed it out to me (slap slap, el smarty pants!!).

So it is not anatomically accurate, but hey ho - blame it on artisic licence!!!

Thank you for all your good wishes for my demo on Thursday xxx. We had a fabulous evening I have to say. I am always just blown away at just how lovely crafters are. I met some really nice ladies, as well as catching up with some familiar faces. There was lots of totally yummy food and Bucks Fizz and wine ( sadly not for me cos I was driving) and a band, and everyone had a great time. There is another one planned for 27th November so if you are in the area, pop in. I believe there is going to be a very special guest making an appearance. No Kath, it isn't Tim Holz lol xxxx Although this fella does have a beard, but it is white, he is a good bit older and he usually wears a red suit!!!!

Ho Ho Ho lol xxxx

Finally, I just wanted to say a HUGE welcome to Blogland to my Poppicrafts team mare Sara. She is new to this blogging thing, but she has some gorgeous cardage on there already for you to feast your eyes on. Sara is the lady who won the Pink Petticoat Lots of Dots comp and her work is just stunning.

Have a great evening peeps. I am off to watch part 2 of Corrie. I KNEW that John boy had something to do with Rawsie going missing (ohh he's turned into a bad lad, that one - mind you, I for one was glad to see the flippin back of her). And Sawphie is being a naughty girl as well. Ooh its all good at the mo.

Love and hugs xxxxx

Brilliant card Dawny ... that spider would work for me cos it can't run so fast pmsl!! Glad your demo went well ... where is the next one exactly? Rawsie was clearly traumatised by her ordeal in Corrie ... it took her all of a minute to demand hobnobs and Heat magazine rofl!

I think six legs on a spider's got to be better than eight, orrible things! love your pumpkin shaped card how very talented you are.
