Congrats Emma Lockley, no 130, you are the lucky winner of one digi stamp from the Paper Shelter store!

A big thankyou to everyone who entered, and joined in the fun. I so love
hopping around and checking out your work.

Righto, on to the new challenge which is.....

"We Having A Halloween Party"

That's right, we want to see all those Halloween Cards and creations.
I am the first to admit this one was a bit out there for me, seeing as how in Australia
we don't really do the Halloween thing. But when i got the new
"Victorian Morticia" i just had to use her. Isn't she just gorgeous.

As usual we have the $20 voucher up for prize for those of you who uses the Paper Shelter images in this challenge. News to this challenge is that if you don't use the TPS images you are up for a prize of three digi images of your choice! How wonderful isn't that? More fun to play with for all of you!

Don't forget to head over to the Challenge blog and see the most
amazing creations that the other DT girls have created to give you the
best inspiration ever!!!

Ok ladies, let's see what wonderful Halloweenie Creations you can come up with!!

So on to my card. I decided to try a Centerfold Step card, i googled and found quiet a few
tutorials on them, and i adapted one, to make a slightly bigger
step card then what was being taught! Very pleased with myself , I am!!! lol
And I have said I have used "Victorian Morticia" and coloured
her with copics.
I have used some adorable new FREE papers from Bearly Mine Design's. Oh, they
are all such lovely papers, and i think they matched perfectly!
I actually printed out the paper, just the right size and cut out the
main piece in one. Then added the pieces on the side to
try and keep the spiderwebs in line. (not too bad a job, if i do say so myself!! lol)
I used my Spellbinders fancy tag die, and found that my Stampin up Large
oval punch, will cut a perfect oval for the centre of it.
I am really pleased with my very first Halloween card!

Card Recipe
Dies - Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Marianne Creatables Leaf
Sentiment - using PSX pixie stamps "Love Letters"
