Delightful Challenge Thursday – Delightfully Frightful!

Good morning everyone, hope all is well with you and yours!

So it’s Thursday and over on the Delightful Challenge Blog our new challenge this week is Delightfully Frightful! Wooaaaaaahh!! {Cough, cough} Sorry not too good at the spooky Vincent Price type voices!!

Our challenge is sponsored by
who are offering a terrific prize of a $15 store certificate!

I personally really love Halloween! I was introduced to the whole fun side of it years ago by some American friends. It was just an excuse to have a party and dress up in spooky costumes really! When you think about it who needs an excuse for that!! J J 
So the image I chose to use is the totally fabulous Sorceress Samantha and I made one of those box card thingies.
I think I have said many, many times how much I love digis. Soooo versatile and I love how you can change the size and flip them around and that is what I did here. I also used one of the many great cut files Wendy has to offer in the shop.

SVG Delightful Cuts: Halloween Time Cutting File Set
Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’ - Sue Wilson 'Spanish Collection Tag' - Spellbinders 'Cherry Blossom'
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White –various from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Silhouette Portrait - Bats from another cut file – ‘Dusty Concord’ DI - Crafters Companion 'Bubble' embossing folder
Hopeless Hand drawings: Ghost (can you spot him??)

So grab that broom and fly over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the fab designs created by the DT and don't forget to visit the shop where Wendy’s amazing images will put a spell on you!!! J

Thanks so much for looking, and have a lovely day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
