To Cute to Spook...

is Debs Theme this week on MAWTT. Well I just had to go for this Bugaboo Image, How Cute is She!!
We are sponsored by our Regular Sponsor Dis Digi Downloads. 
Now All sit down!!! I actually used Promarkers for this card!!! I know haven't touched them for ages!!! 
I also had a D'oh experience while making this card. I had done the front of it and had to make something else in a hurry so did that, while doing it though was looking for a piece of white card and cut the back off my card!!! Noooooooo!!!!Therefore I ended up with an Easel Card!!! 

Card Recipe
2 x 6 x 6 Cards
Bugaboo Halloween Skelz Topper
Papers Best Creations Inc (Including BOO)
Web Ribbon from Stash
 Sequin Spiders from Ebay
Coloured with Promakrers. 
Stickles Glitter Glue.

Golly there are still loads of Halloween Challenges about so I would like to enter my card into the following.

My Mums Craft Shop - So Spooky.
The Paper Shelter - Halloween.
Crafty Creations - Halloween Spooks.
LEJ Designs - Trick or Treat.
Bearly Mine - Easel Cards.
Digital Tuesday - Halloween.

I havent been about as much as usual, as I have been getting the garden all sorted for Winter. Well When I say I what I mean is Dad has and I have been supervising!!! Although I did do some of the front myself. His poor potatoes were a disaster. The Early ones were wonderful but these ones were munched by beasties. So no carrots cause of carrot flies and no spuds cause of beasties. Its a huge learning curve so we know we need to plant other things next year to stop the beasties from visiting!!! Coriander seemingly gets rid of carrot fly and mine grew lots this year. I have a wee herb garden at my back door.  We do still have neeps (Turnips) so going to be having lots of that for dinner!

Sending big hugs to all who need them, 

Love Hx

Forgot to say..We found the best success was planting our potatoes in black buckets (like the supermarkets put flowers in) and stand them at the back of other plants/vegs it stops them getting potato rot from overwet soil. We also found one bucket gave a couple of days supply easy.
