Double Spookytastic Picfest :)

Try saying that when you've had a few lol xxx

It's trick or treat time but I hope that you think it's a treat cos I've lots of pics for this card. This lil devil is Max and he is one of the fabulous Pink Gem Designs images which have been created by the sweetness that is Janet - you can see more of Max here.

I was thrilled not so long ago to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Janet and this is my first card for her. I love this image and how perfect for Halloween is he, all kitted out and ready to go.

As always he has been coloured with the good old bad boys but one again there is not a speck of bling here.

I thought this card would be perfect for Cute Card Thursday which this week is Hidden Treasure (I'll explain in a sec) and also for Stamp With Fun which is a lovely sketch

So this is the old card.

Spot my attempt at spooky writing cos I dragged the text box 'down' to give it a touch of the twightlight zone!!!!

Now I did say that the challenge over at CCT was Hidden Treasures .......

... so here's what I did.

The front part of the card lifts up to reveal who has had off with the treats.

And I can reveal .....

... that it was Spot The Dog :)

You can maybe see what I mean a bit better here.
Not sure about those brads now I see it here.

The paper is the new Pink Petticoat Spooky Doodles - it is a brilliant range of papers and images!!!!

And I 'ad libbed' a bit with the spiders (I remembered just in time that spiders have 8 legs and not 6 as per my card last year - doh!!!!)

And that's it - held shut for this pic courtesy of a little bit of Bluetack :)
Hope you likee!!!

I'm giving it to my great nephew for Halloween. We always dress the kids up and subject my poor aunty and uncle to an hour of trick or treating!!!!

I'm on a bit of a flyer tonight cos thanks to a wonderful friend across the pond, who shall remain nameless (but she knows who she is and I love her dearly for all her help xxx), I have just taken delivery of a fabbydoodles new Cricut cartridge and I so wanna play with it. I am also going to plug in my Cricut Design Studio which l've only had since Christmas and never used (shame on me and sorry Richard!!!) so that's my evening planned.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening, whatever your plans are and see ya soon xxxxx
