Bump in the night ... Penny Black (and quite a bit of orange too)


This week on Penny Black it is not only a challenge week but also a design team call. They want to see spooky hallowe'en cards. No problem you may say. So .... do I have any hallowe'en stamps .... er nope! Hallowe'en backing papers .... no. Black embellishments etc ... not really. Oh dear, I really had to get my thinking cap on for this one because I really wanted to take part. Luckily one of my wonderful cratfing buddies had sent me this image recently so I was able to make it a bit more hallowe'en like by using lots of orange, lol. My new flower punch that I bought on Sunday also proved very useful (I can see this little beauty paying for itself in no time). I can't believe I haven't used any backing papers at all - just shows what you can do when you try. I am going to pop this in the post for my nieces in the morning with lots of sweeties - hopefully they should get it on Hallowe'en morning!
