MAWTT - 'Too Cute To Spook'

Good Morning... hope you are all well today.... it's Thursday again... and so time for a new Challenge over at 

and it's the lovely Debs turn to host and she has chosen the fab theme of...

'Too Cute To Spook'

Yes with Halloween just around the corner... time to create something spooky but not too scary!! in fact it has to be CUTE!! remember it doesn't have to be a card as long as you follow the theme!

I have chosen a very cute image from Paper Shelter called A Great Harvest... this little fella looks all set for Trick and Treating!

I've chosen some of my favourite MAMBI papers and kept the card quite simple... just added a flower and leaves made with Marianne Design dies... and added a WOC purple carnation in centre.

I've coloured the image with Promarkers. Can't believe that I was stupid enough to colour in all this image and then realise that I  hadn't left enough card space around it to cut out a square, circle or anything!!! anyway.. I had spent so long colouring it ... decided to cut the image out and just leave some white space... I just hope it looks ok? 

We are sponsored this week by the fab Di's Digis who are very kindly giving this week's winner 3 Digital images of their choice from instore!!!

For more details of the Challenge and prize ... hope you can pop on over to MAWTT and also see my Teamies gorgeous creations this week... lots of fab inspiration...

Hope I have entered these correctly - I struggled doing these links as I am not well so if I have broken any rules then big apologies and please delete... I'm just glad that I typed up this post and all the links last week before I got ill. 

Sorry I haven't been able to visit you all and comment but I have yet another chest infection. Sunday I had temperature and was shivering all day... then in evening it started going up... and up... when it got to over 104F I felt really ill so went to A & E and they admitted me. So they kept me in until Tuesday afternoon while they got my fever down and I came home with some mega strong antibiotics. I still feel really ill and can't do much... any slight exertion and I can't breathe so basically I just have to rest. Can't believe that when I got back... the bloke next door is having is blooming house renovated. They are stripping the whole roof off and some top bricks and sending them all down a huge chute... Oh the noise!!  Thank the Lord for earplugs!! :-))
Hope you are all okay.... will catch up with you all as soon as I am able
Take Care
Love and Hugs

Cute image and coloured perfectly Sue and so sorry you're unwell again.

I'm feeling not the best right now either as my Mum is on a fast downward spiral and most likely won't be around for Xmas....just gives me a sick feeling in my gut.
So hang in there and get better real quick.
