MAWTT - In The Dark!

Morning - hope you are all well this Thursday morning. It's time for a new Challenge over at 

... and this week it is the lovely Lisa who is hosting and she has chosen the wonderful theme of

In The Dark!

So we want to see your creations using Dark Colours or Things that come out in the Dark!! so it could be witches, cats, vampires, bats... or a Dark Colour Combo... it's up to you... it doesn't have to be a card as long as you follow the theme...

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Bugaboo!! 

We who gave us some fab images to play with...

I have chosen this wonderful witch... 'JJ Calendar Months - October'

The gorgeous orange Design Paper is from a Freebie 'Halloween' Set from Design House Digital and is available here. The bats were on some other free digital paper that I got with magazine and I cropped them and cut them out... Gems are from stash... Sentiment was made on computer...

Hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of this week's Challenge and Prize and also to see my Teamies gorgeous creations... they are spookylicious this week!! and can't wait to see all your fab entries! 

I would like to enter the following challenges:-
Bearly-Mine - Challenge 55 - 'Halloween' ends 8th October 2012
Papertake Weekly - 'Anything Goes' ends 8th October 2012
Craft Us Crazy - 'Halloween and/or Anything Goes' ends 10th October 2012
Heck of a Challenge - 'Spooktacular' - ends 31st October 2012

I'm sorry that I haven't got around to visit many of you this week but my dad was taken ill on Saturday. So things are a bit hectic ... trying to juggle everyday things with hospital visiting etc. and I am SO tired I look and feel like a zombie at the moment which is very appropriate with Halloween just around the corner!! 

Ah well not long until the weekend... and I think Strictly starts on Saturday!! and that means It Takes Two also... Woo Hoo!!... something to cheer us up now the nights are drawing in... really looking forward to it! 
Hope you all have a fab weekend !!!!!!
Love and Hugs
