Well Hello Everyone

I'm kind of back - as you know I've been away working and have just got back and I'm absolutely shattered.  Thank goodness the clocks go back this weekend - ah an extra hour in bed - bliss.

Lots has been happening whilst I've been away some personal stuff that I'm not gonna publish on here, but it's not good :(  and then a bit of good stuff - a shock really - I've only been asked to join the one and only Nitwit Design Team! :D/  Can't believe it!  It's really brought a smile to my face.

So it's Saturday and it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss and this week our theme is "Spooky".  We have two generous sponsors for the challenge who are The Ribbon Girl and Milk and Coffee Digital Stamps.  So if you wanna be in with a chance to win a prize then get your entries in over at Totally Gorjuss.

Here is the card that I have made:

What a great opportunity to use some of those fabulous digital Nitwit papers and elements :D.  Its just great you can print everything out as many times as you want and not worry about having just one piece of paper left - love it!

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Bildmilarna - Mimosa Moon
Digital Papers and Elements:  Nitwit - Trick or Treat
Star Die:  Tim Holtz Alterations - Stacked Stars
Alphabet Die:  Tim Holtz Alterations - Vintage Market

I have coloured the image with both Copics and Twin Touch Markers (TT) as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair: TT BR95 BR112 BR97 BR107
Hat:  T8 T7 T6 T4 T3 T2
Dress:  TT P81 P281 P83 / Copics T8 T7 T6 T4 T3 T2 / YR18 YR16 YR14 YR12
Boots:  T8 T7 T6 T4 T3 T2
Cat:  N7 N6 N5 N4 N3 N2
Moon:  YR18 YR16 YR14 YR12
Stars:  YG05 YG03 YG01 / TT  P81 P281 P83

I have outlined the image with my Copic Airbrush and N3 marker
The papers and everything else have been edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

And that's it from me.

I'll be back sporadically over the next few weeks whilst I recover and will look forward to catching up with you all.

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are doing.

Love the banner and the black cat in it you added to your blog. So sorry to hear you had some personal hickups, they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, but that is sometimes hard to say when you are in it :). Good luck and lots of strength and courage on your personal issues, I hope they will resolve soon. Back to your card, love it, so much fun and details to look at. Have a lovely day and weekend sweettie, lots of hugs, Marion
