DT Crafty Catz - Halloween

Good morning folks, hoping this Friday finds you all well and looking forward to the soon to arrive weekend (I know I am!).

First I need to say a big hello and welcome to my newest followers and also give a big hug to my existing followers and a thank you for putting up with all my ramblings lol.

This is a scheduled post and I'm actually typing this out Thursday evening after a VERY long and busy day at work, so it will be lots of pics and very little blather from me for a change.

Our challenge at Crafty Catz this week, chosen by the fabulous Sue (known to all as Aunty Sue), who is such a helpful member of our DT and who keeps us all laughing, is Halloween.

Those of you who saw my post yesterday will know I have recently created something spooky, so I decided to go for a cute Halloween rather than a scary one.  This is what I made.

The image is a Wee Stamps one from the very talented illustrator Sylvia Zet, she draws super cute images, love this little witch and just look at that adorable bat on her broomstick, if bats were actually as cute as that I would so want one as a pet lol and if you go check the challenge blog you'll see a card by my team mate Naomi with another of Sylvia's stamps that has 2 of those cute bats....adorable overload! LOL

She's coloured in copics as usual for me, for once I'm not putting the colours as I'm so tired and just blogging super fast.

I used some autumnal looking fruits and flowers and the ticket sentiments are made with a Whimsy die and stamp set.

I gave the inside a bit of a Halloween feel too.

I haven't listed out all my mats and equipment today to save time, but if anyone would like more details about anything just post your question in a comment and I'll reply with an answer.

Thank you so much for dropping by and don't forget to drop by the challenge blog, the girls have made some gorgeous creations and we have 2 prizes this week from BunnyZoe Crafts and Marianne Designs.

That's it from me today, I hope you enjoyed my share and that it's inspired you to join in with our Halloween challenge.
