Spooktastic MAWTT

Morning everyone, hope you are all ok and managed to make the most of the good weather we had at the beginning of the week. (Gone now!)  I've had a good week, not done as much gardening as I might have, but there is a reason for this...

Before I tell you that bit of news, I'll have to tell you all about this weeks challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.  It's a seasonal theme that Hazel has gone for with

"Spooktastic Times"

A great theme as there are so many fabulous Halloween stamps out there so I really can't wait to see what you all come up with.


For my card, I went with this new release from Bugaboo.  Added lots of glossy accents, a nice bold ribbon & that my dears was it! Abra-ca-Dabra, job done!  Now it's over to you! (PS Thanks to everyone who entered last week, we had a brilliant response to that challenge so hopefully you'll come out in force again for this weeks one too.)

Challenges;
Kaboodle Doodles - Pumpkins
City Crafter - Trick or Treat
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Pumpkins
My Craft Spot - Trick or Treat
Without Words - Pumpkins
Hobby Cutz - Halloween
Catch The Bug - October Anything Goes

Which now leaves me my other tiny bit of news... everyone, Meet Merlot!
