Spider Webs & Bat Wings

I love Halloween and I'm so glad Aussies are really
beginning to get behind this 'scarey' celebration.
I'm really enjoying sharing these cards with my friends
and getting them into the Halloween spirit.
For this card I've used the cutest little bat you've ever
seen, together with the Spooky moon background and little
cauldron, all from the new Halloween Collection, and if
you're as mad about Magnolia's as I am then you'll want
to get every single one of the gorgeous Designer Papers
that Magnolia are releasing with all of their new stamp
I've purchased all my papers from Crafts U Love. The
service is brilliant and the shipping time from the UK
to Australia is under a week.
If you're a follower of my blog then you'll know that I'm
a big fan of combining challenges and this week is no
I came up with four different challenges for this card.
The wonderful sketch is from Sunday Sketches. I only
came across this particular blog recently, but already
I'm a big fan - great sketches.
The distressing idea comes from the ladies at
Magnolia Down Under - gotta love a challenge blog
from my own country.
Next up from the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog is the task
of scraplifting/taking inspiration from one of the great
DT cards and my last challenge comes from the team
of talented ladies at Stamp Something - this week they're
asking for a Halloween theme on your card.

Sorry about my previous post. My brother also uses my pc at the moment and I always forget to check if he's logged on.

Still, a great card!
