It's a little bit Spooky at Allsorts

 Good morning.  Just a quick share from me today as I have a busy day ahead with last minute shopping and packing for our jolly hols tomorrow - well only just tomorrow as the flight is 6:30am so it will be a 3:30 alarm call :-)

This week over at

the uber talented Fleur has picked a very topical theme 


Here's what I did:

I have been wanting to have a go at one of these centre stepper cards for a while and I'm quite pleased with the result :-) 
Now I know I have made a 'spooky' birthday card and that's because it's for Jack's friend's birthday which is on Halloween!

 Here's what I used:

Image - LOTV Abracadabra coloured with PM's
I cut the 'grass' and the Spiders using the Cricut Expression and From The Nest cartridge
Sentiment -PC generated using Halloween Spider font
Fab black webbing from local craft shop 
Edges have all been 'distressed' using Brilliance Silver ink pad.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Paper Play - Use Black
Divas by Design - Something Spooky
Inky Impressions - Halloween
Stampavie and More - Halloween
Creative Card Crew - Spooky Fun
Papertake Weekly - Spooky Hues
Passion for Promarkers - Stars (on hat and cloak - but if not enough I understand lol!!!)
Tuesday Throwdown - Shaped Card

Before I go I just wanted to let you know that Anice over at Funky Hand is having a 'spooktacular' sale this weekend

Why not pop over and grab yourself a bargain (or two)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
