Halloween for MAWTT

Good morning and I hope this finds you well. Yesterday seven of us from our Craft and Laugh Group at WI went to a workshop and did some block printing and fabric decoupage.  We had a great morning and my tea towel turned out quite well.  I will show it on another post.

Anyway,  today I am showing my DT card for MAWTT.  Amy is our host and wants to see Halloween cards.  I don't usually do Halloween but I thought I would do this one and send it to my great nephew. His big sister has just gone off to Uni and he is feeling a little low so I thought this might cheer him up a little.  His sister is five years older and  has always "mothered" him a wee bit.  I'm sure he will soon get used to it but every little helps- as one of the larger supermarkets says.

My Card

Apart from using a 6 inch square base card from Rymans everything else is computer generated. The graveyard image is from my Greeting Card Deluxe programme and then I added the text, bats, cat and spider web. I don't have any orange card so I added the border by computer graphics too.

We have had some lovely sunshine over the last couple of days but it has been rather chilly - but it is almost the end of October so definitely to be expected.

Please go across to the blog and see what my team mates have made for this challenge.

Take care.

Great spooky card. Love Halloween and having good cards to share makes it even better. Made my grandkids cards today and made a chocolate bar holder to go with each. Must get it blogged!
