Spooky Pumpkin Cutie :)

Hi Peeps xxx
Hope all is well with everyone.

This lil sweetie is Pumpkin Emma and she is a CC Design image. I think she is really sweet and I thought I'd use her for my Happy Halloween card for Kyla.

I love CC Designs and there is a fab range available over at the equally fab - if not fabbier - Dies To Die For.

Buy sheer good luck, I can also use her to join in with the challenge over at A Spoonful Of Sugar cos this week it is Halloween :)

And this is what I did.

I coloured the image with PMs - no blingy stuff for a change and also no punches - MS or otherwise!!!I thought I'd show you the papers like this cos you can't see them in their full glory on the card but they are perfect for Halloween cards and they are of course Liz's brilliant Spooky Doodlies papers from Pink Petticoat.

The colours are gorgeous - I just love them!!!

You'd never know it if you looked on here but I do actually have a Cricut machine. To my shame, it doesn't get used half as much as it should but I have told myself that I must start to use it more.

So this spider's web and spider were from the Wild Card cartridge - it is awesome and chock full of stuff. I used some little orange gems which were on offer at The Paper Mill for the spider's eyes.

And there ya go.

I am on a flyer tonight cos I am off to do the technical thing with my keyboard and mouse. The mouse is one of them digital wireless things - grrr - and lately it has developed a mind of it's own to the point where I am almost ready to feed it to the cat.

My keyboard is also missing half the letters cos for some reason (probably due to heavy handed Annie here lol xx) after about 6 months of use, I managed to wipe the writing off most of the keys. This the third keyboard I have ruined and this particular one is now down to 4 keys that are readable.

So I've been to PC World and replaced them. And if you stick your head out of the window in about half an hours time, you will no doubt hear the yells and cursing when thicko here can't get either of them to work.

If you stick your head out and it happens to be quiet, it will either mean a) I have given up and gone to bed b) I have thrown them both through the window or c) both.

Have a fab night and see ya soon xxxx

My poor Cricut also spends much of his time asleep under a very pretty quilted cover-thingy! Shameful, isn't it? I just love colouring in too much at the minute! Your card is just fantastic as always Dawn, the details are perfect. Sorry I missed the club again this month - haven't had a Monday free in forever!

Oh, thanks for joining us at ASOS too!!!
