It's Magical Monday again!! Or at least it is at 'There's Magic in the Air' with Paper Cupcakes (although it probably doesn't feel quite so magical for those of you who are back at work today after the weekend ;-) lol). This week, the Design Team challenge has been set by Patti P and we were all given a set image to work with - I had 'Batty about Candy Corn' - soooooo cute (is it weird to think like that about a bat?) and we had to use this photo as inspiration:

And so I found myself making my second Halloween card in as many days. Now in the UK, we don't make such a big deal out of Halloween as our US counterparts, I mean, yes, the kids go out 'Trick or Treating' and some households will carve out a pumpkin but that's about it, so I've never made a card for the occasion before this year and I didn't have an suitable papers. I have recently made the most wonderful discovery - there's a lady in the US called Summer Driggs and she designs lots of different papers and gives them away on her website here and so I used the 'Happy Halloween' paper kit.  Here's my card:

I'm also going to be entering it into the following challenges:
I've lost a follower!!! I wonder where they've gone (and why???) I was most upset!! If it was you who's jumped ship can you get in touch and tell me why you've left me?!?

OK - I think I've waffled on enough for one day! Hop over and play along with us at Paper Cupcakes!!
Back soon!


  1. Great card Marie - I know what you mean about Halloween cards, we just don't make them here do we!? Wouldn't worry about losing a follower, people come and go and stop blogging for a while, I'm sure its nothing personal. Have a great day. Hugs, Claire x

  8. Great card Marie. I've gotten to where I just love digi papers and I think Nina is working on creating semi-transparent png image files so we can insert them on the digi paper and then just print and color. Check out Cool Scraps for free digi papers and elements. "Hugs" Carol
